As Expected…The Delicate Genius Chimes In

Not surprisingly, Mitch Albom has graced Wing fans with his viewpoints.  We should have expected it. 

Sure, I know.  He ignores the most successful team in the state’s history 50 weeks out of the year.  He has zero credibility in the Wings room or in the minds of any reasonable Wing fan.  Like his large buddy at the Detroit News, Albom writes exactly nothing about Detroit hockey until he absolutely has to…when the playoffs roll around.

Unless, of course, the Wings do something that disturb his sensitivities.  And, oh, they have. 

When the pile cleared, Moore didn’t move. He had three broken vertebrae in his neck.

He was taken off on a stretcher.

He has not played hockey since.

Bertuzzi was suspended for 17 months.

Ahh, the selective hard returns.  Mitch’s favorite dramatic device.  Let’s try it here.

You ignore the Wings 11 months out of the year.

You have zero credibility with Wing fans or the organization.

And you’re as predictable as ever.

See? Easy.  No one does outrage like our Delicate Genius.  The king of disdain, the voice of the suffering and downtrodden bellowing from the far left.

Stick to politics, basketball, society, piano and broadcasting Mitch.  Hockey can continue to survive without you.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
