Wings Can End Their Western Canada Swing In Style

Paul here for every other A2Y blogger.

Before we start the live blog, I suggest you rise and gentlemen please remove your hats.

Let's pay tribute the the Canadian National Anthem, sung at the last regular season game of the original Winnipeg Jets.

 

Now that I have your attention, we can now think about a western Canada road sweep, plus rejoice in not having to do it all over again this season.

Those much anticipated 7:00pm or 7:30pm starts are about to become the norm and since the Wings have six points on this swing, we now breathe a sigh of relief.

Turing our attention back to the Jets, who knows what Winnipeg team will show up.

The team is under pressure to start winning on a regular basis and let's hope it doesn't start until their next game.

It's a live blog b*@&##%!

If you can’t tell, I’m a bit on edge tonight. Maybe it’s the strong tea, belgian butter crisps, sugar or just being a dick.

It is awesome when you can get old shit to work. I bought a 1949 Farmall Super A tractor for a winter project. Older than cosmic dust. I got a bigger kick out of bringing it back to life than fixing all those high $$ German cars.

After my grandma died, I told my siblings the ONLY damn thing I wanted was the piano.  So of course I got really nothing as I was TDY to Turkey and the piano wound up my sister’s basement.  Then it went through a flood and it went into her garage where it sat for two years and then went to her new house and into THAT garage.  SIx years ago she asked if I wanted it.  My reply was of course “I wanted it ten years ago before it wound up in your basement”  That of course didn’t go over ...well I lie.  It went EXACTLY how I intended it.  smile

Spur of the moment road trip from ND to MI and back to ND to discover the player bit didn’t work anymore.  I was pretty pissed.  I got bored yesterday and tore it apart….my wife absofuckingllutely freaked out when she came home from picking the kids up from youth group last night and the piano was dismantled.  I told her “chill out bitch…I got dis”. 

So this morning when I realized I didn’t “got dis” I called the piano guru guy at church who via the church mafia hooked me up with a guy who helped me put humpty dumpty back together and voila.

I’m just happy we got Weiss instead of Filppulla because he was 200k cheaper, he brings so much more to the game.

So if the ice’s rough at the end of the period, what’s the Wings’ excuse for being so crappy up to that point?

Holy cow there are some terrific posts here tonight. I just paused the game so I couldn’t read them all.

My mother who just passed away at age 97 played the organ at her church in Corunna for more than 60 years until she was over 80 years old. The original organ must have been from the early 1900s or possibly before that she had to pump with her feet with all kinds of levers to pull out while playing the hymns.  In the 1970s the church replaced it with a modern organ with about 24 sets of pipes in the upstairs. Someone made off with the original organ which I’m sure is a classic worth thousands now because it was still perfectly operational.

I would be kind of like to get my hands on some tube era ham radio equipment from the 50s or early 60s. They all had a personality of their own as they warmed up their frequency drifted around for 30 minutes but they provided a nice warm orange glow in those cold Michigan winters.

Oh Yeah, press play now, there still is a hockey game going on. Well at least talking about these things calmed me down for a couple of minutes.  Bitches.

Wings looking a bit slow tonight, hopefully then can find their legs for the 2nd and 3rd.

In case you missed the post, we started a new fantasy game with the first game tomorrow.

Free to join, play against other KK members and readers. First place is $25. Details and thanks, hoping for a good showing tomorrow.

And I think I just may have my first beer in six months, Molson XXX sitting in the fridge.

Muther fucher, they dropped the ball as soon as I paused it to speak my last comment.

Also this voice to text doesn’t spit it out exactly as you say it sometimes. If you’re not careful you miss some important mistakes, Which I did in the last comment.
