Abstinence Is The Only Cure

We've endured losing streaks before.  Usually in February, like this one.  Only those were different because our midget commissioner hadn't ordered a five-month snow day.

This one is horribler, a word I rarely use but it's a real word because I checked.  It's horribler because if there's one thing we learned from The Natural, it's that losing is a disease as contagious as syphilis.  I don't want to catch sypilis and I've taken certain steps over the course of my life to ensure I haven't.  But if losing is contagious like that disease does that mean only the players themselves will catch it or the fans too?  I do not want syphilis. 

Please win. I'm allergic to penicillin and I really dislike Nashville.

It's a Live Blog bitches.  We're all in serious trouble.

Thank Helm.

NHLGC live has FSD.

This team may be elbows deep in yesterday’s dog yummies, but at least the wife and I get to hear Ken and Mick while we watch.

I suggest wings coaching staff use a clip of miller “going hard to the net” as a teachable moment for some of the passengers on this team
