All Aboard…Play Time Is Over, Live Blogging The 7th Re-Grand-Redolent Opening Of The Hasek

I really have no idea if this is the 7th year of the Stress Train.  We may have actually christened it in May of 2007…because that was one painful playoff year, bitches.  So it could be six.

February is upon us, or me, really.  It’s on me. I want to be..on February.  Sorry. Anchorman gets me sometimes.  In past years it’s been a painful, horror show of a month. Way Western trips thanks to Tiny Tim the Commish, injuries, losing streaks, goalie controversies, suicidal Legaces.  Hossa, Zetterberg and Yzerman contract worries.  It all seems to crash down on us in this sick twisted fuch of a month.

Oh, but I’m sure now that it’s a “four-team race”...(that’s a lie and every one of you knows it.  It’s coming down to us and the Blackhawks…and you know they’re gonna make a move, right Kenny? Right..tick..TOCK) that’s gonna make it all better, eh?  A little competition is going to make this one just flyyyy by even though it’s a Leap Year, oh yes it is. 

No. We have pain on the horizon and that’s why the Stress Train is here for you.  We can’t make the pain go away but we can give you a comfy, stench-ridden, dark place where you and your fake friends can sit close but not too close but still pretty damn close and worry together.  Voox has the Hasek open and the cheap Ten High whiskey is literally on tap and flowing. It’s disgusting but it’s ours.

So up late we stay, or up early in my case.  It’s a Live Blog, bitches.  A Live Blog to kick off this god forsaken second half of a season that can only end with 12.  Only 12 because it is so decreed.

12 in 12 bitches. 12 in 12.

No even going to touch that introduction - it is history that is all that it is.  Painful history to be sure.  Past performance does not guarantee future results - it does not, at least that is what the 401 guy says.  Right?

In other good news… My son, YYZerman,(one of the 19 that hasn’t been around too much lately) brought me a game used stick.

Used by none other than the best screener, with the most beautiful huge ASS, in the game of hockey. Oh, yea. I am now the proud owner of a Tomas Holmstrom game used stick.

Homer’s ASS DNA is all over it. I love my son! I love Homer’s huge goal scoring ASS!Bitches.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Once more into the pit camarades, once more.  All we want is wins and points and more wins and more points, followed by yet more wins and points.  And we want that dynamic force who’s going to join our team sometime around Feb 27th—that one missing player who will step in and make this team truly dominant.

Let’s go Red Wings.  12 in 12, destiny calls.

I heard. As long as his ASS is healed and playoff ready, I can deal with it.

Good for you Kate. You have a great son.

Finally a game after the Gary Ass dog and pony show.
Hope Homer is Ok. Been wanting to see Mursak play.

Ahoy there, Master Chief.

And for that, I drink.  Slainte.

Better half has been gone for eight days. Out visiting her Mother in West Branch. No not the one down by the Motor City, the one Skandia is in.

She just pulled the car into the drive way and wanted to know why I have not snowplowed the driveway while she was gone. Told her well it is that time of the year where it snows an inch or two every day now.

She brought home a large spice cake, with extra thick frosting. There goes the weight loss program I have been working on this year.

here is your list of players who have not yet scored a goal this year for the flames.

if one does, you know it was foreordained.

33   D   Anton Babchuk
41   L   Raitis Ivanans
3   D   Brett Carson  
24   R   Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond  
21   D   Clay Wilson
43   D   Joe Piskula  
48   C   Greg Nemisz

How right you are. I just wish I knew why players like those mentioned, as well as first NHL goals scored, always seem to happen against the Wings?

Tick Tock, indeed. How about that guy wearing #12 on the (f)Lames? Aren’t they still looking at moving him? Maybe it’s the cold meds, I don’t know.

Makes you wonder sometimes why we so worked up over hockey.  There are more important things in life.
