We’ll Watch The White Doves Go, Bubba. That’s What You See In Houses of the Holy.

It’s a 5-game series now, Bubba.  Three of those games will be at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena.  It’s dirty and the stairs are sticky.  Working people go there and they drink cheap beer sold expensively. You have Vince Gill with a stupid t-shirt, we have a statue of the greatest hockey player in history.  You have two skanks taking stupid pictures pretending to be Shea Weber.  We have eleven Stanley Cup banners hanging from the most prolific rafters in the United States.

It’s back to the Joe where the team you face today didn’t lose for 23 straight games back when they were healthy.

The same JLA where you’ve never won a playoff game. Not one.

There are no train whistles at the Joe.  There are no catfish…but we know why you throw them down in wannabeDetroit don’t we?

You won’t see the baby shit jerseys in Detroit today, Bubba. Not along the glass, not in the mez, not buying beer in the concourse.  You’ll see red and white with numbers like 19 and 25, 16 and 24, by god.

You won’t hear “Who Let The Dogs Out”, and it’s unbelievable (almost) that we heard it in your cookie cutter arena during Game 2.  You will hear the legendary Budd Lynch.  You’ll hear the stylings of one Bullet Bob Seger and our Uncle Ted Nugent.

And you’ll hear some Journey when the time is exactly right.

You’re wading into hell today, Bubba. And just think how much easier you’d be breathing had you taken Game 2.  A 2-0 lead would have been so relaxing, a pleasant stroll.  Nothing better than a 2-0 lead, brother. We’ve been there.  You?  Nevermind. Don’t answer that, Bubba. That was cruel.

Hibernation could have been so easy for the Wings, Bubba.  A few more months of sleep is what we all expected. Seriously.  Our hopes weren’t high for this series.  But now? Now we’re starting to think it just might be time for you to get your shine box.

It’s your own fault, with your brain-dead captain.  And to think he wanted to be a Wing in a year or so.  It’s your own fault with your Shananigans and your #webering.

Blame yourselves, Bubba.  It didn’t have to be like this.  But now Mecca beckons with a series on the line.

From the door of the Joe comes Satan’s daughter, and it only goes to show…

...you don’t fuch around in Houses of the Holy, Bubba.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches. 

15 to 12 in ‘12.

And as I type that the satellite goes out…nifty.

You would think the Navy would have a better communications set on their big grey boots. Just saying…

Switching to wide screen TV as no one else is awake out here yet.  I’ll post later when I can wrestle the laptop from son number two.

LGRW !!!!!

Mule.  Today.  That is all.

Posted by IwoCPO from Sunny San Diego, bitches on 04/15/12 at 11:44 AM ET

from the GDT:

Uncle Mike has a message for the invisible Moose:  “He has the ability to be a big-time player. Being a big-time player at this time of year is real simple. A lot of guys have regular-season success and can’t have any in the playoffs, just because they’re not gritty enough and determined enough. They need more space and when there’s no space you’ve got to make your own space, you’ve got to dig in and find a way.  So he has the tool set and he’s always found a way to do that and we need him to do that again this year.”


L.G.R.W.

Let’s do this Red Wings. I’m already P.O’ed that our upstairs neighbors flooded our apartment again for the 5th time. I swear they must be Preds fans, because they don’t know how to ‘warsh’ their clothes with that new-fangled washing machine.

Hey gang, I hear the ball game is about to start.

No more wins for Bubba this year.  And now I have to chose between the stupidity that is NBC and the full of their own legend CBC presentation. Hmm, maybe CBC will sync with the radio.

I haven’t seen you around here before, so let me say welcome aboard.  My hat is off to your screenname/avatar combo.

Everything about their hockey fandom is… manufactured.

You can’t start a scotch distillery one year and then start slapping “top-shelf aged 18 years” labels on your swill in year three.

Posted by J.J. from Kansas on 04/15/12 at 11:18 AM ET

I know exactly how you feel JJ.  Also, as I said on another thread, I really have a hard time mustering any respect for a fan base that cares more about taunting their opponent than cheering for their own team.


Its on bitches.  Lets take this thing Red Wings.  Its 15 to 12.

LGRW.  Nothing else matters.

Back on!  Found the laptop in the TV room.

Watching the Milburry previews….I see lots of fines.  Hell noo one had two hands on the other players head trying to break the glass.  $1,000.00 dollars for YOU, you, and you.

So here is the real message.  The Coaches, sensing the league and Brendan Bettmen is spineless, are handling the matters themselves.  Send out the goon, deliver the message, now let’s play. 

Thanks Gary. Ass.

Milbury said it was incidental contact, Carkner probably shouldn’t have been tossed from the game.

He didn’t use a firearm, either, so it’s not a felony assault.

Good grief, CBC showing clips from the other games. Lots of goonery and cheap headshots. Way to let this get out of hand Shanny.

p.s. NBC is streaming the game themselves for free. It’s obviously a very good feed.
