Wings/Leafs Always Brings Out Some Nostalgia

But let's forget about hockey for the moment and instead go back to 1975 in merry old England.

Hopefully this brings back some memories for current Detroit area residents, those of you in the out reaching areas and those of you coming home or even thinking about the days gone by during this holiday season.

Bruce Springsteen performs a Detroit Medley...

Now we can say go for two in a row boys, it's a live blog bitches.

Good Evening Folks!

I have a 5 pound Venison Shepherd’s Pie in the oven if anyone is hungry. Beer’s in the fridge. Tequila is in the cupboard beside the fridge. First door around the corner to the left is the Rest Room.

I’m ready to party with all my fake friends.

Anything less than two points would suck. Let’s do this, boys. Go WINGS!!

Getting ready for the HNIC crew to show their Leaf’s love during the broadcast. They’re already at it.

God, I hope the Wings win this one. Bitches.

FYI: I absolutely love the Canadian anthem being sung in Canadian arenas; such passion from the crowd.

Yes I was wondering who was going to sing the national anthems at Michigan Stadium, or if they are going to bring in a Toronto favorite to sing it. Should be epic.  They should let the Canadian Air Force do a flyover between the anthems LOL

D pairs get switched back to Smith-Quincey, and the Leafs immediately score.

I am utterly… well, not surprised.

Gotta hand it to ya ,Red. The Fireball and ginger ale is working fine tonight. Epic day for me, rubbing 5 butts.

Dry rub on Boston Butts, but at my cosmic dust age, rubbing any butt is a good butt.

Great pressure, great work at the points, and Datsyuk finishes it off.

but at my cosmic dust age, rubbing any butt is a good butt.

Posted by dougie on 12/21/13 at 07:26 PM ET

What do you mean “at your age?” Rubbing any butt that isn’t my own is a good butt.
