Autumn Closed In On Homer And We’re Live Blogging A Whole New Start

Saturday didn't happen.  Clubber Lang was fiction.  That Blues rookie was nothing but a nightmare, but holy hell that kid is good.  Enough about that. Didn't happen. 

You know what did happen for real and no BS? 

"Nine Tonight" was recorded in 1980 and it's unreal.  Know the best part? I know you do so don't sit there like Potsie Frigging Weber trying to pretend you're oblivious when we all know you've been paying attention all these years.

"Just like southern Michigan summer time."  That line is just so Seger.  And Seger is so Michigan because he's never forgotten his roots.  He belts that line out and the Cobo crowd goes nuts. 

But wait...here's the best part.  It wasn't Cobo...it was Boston.  He changed that line and tailored it to us...in Boston.  He didn't go all Dave Matthews on us and say it was just like "eastern Nantucket summer time" to please those Northeastern yuppie tools. No. He brought Michigan to them.

It's why I can't get away from Seger.  The ultimate transplant who can't leave MI behind, like more than a few of us.

I have nothing to say about the Wings that I haven't already said today.  Husk and Gus in.  Fredo and William Tell out.  Quite The ClusterFuch is in, of course.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  As it should be.

Homer will never be replaced just like TPH. But these sportscasters need to shut the frick up about them already. Lets talk about what we have going on now, and in the future. 1st on the block: doing something about Quinkey.

Quab on the second line.. Oh god.. Why must you torment us? May the force break his ankel or something.. Just please.. get him the fuch out of there. I’ll never say a bad thing about a Wings player if he goes away..

Anyways.. It would be nice for Kronner to Wall the Jager.

I still like his comment during the press conf. He said that Lucky Luc told him to use a curved blade. He tried it once and almost got traded. Lol.

I hear he’s been hired to do some commentary stuff for Fox Sports Steers and Queers—or whatever their station is called—so he might not be too far away.

You know, Gamecenter Live would be so much better if they showed the pre-game stuff.

This just in. Before tonight’s game, the Wings are tied for 6th place in the Western Conference with 4 other teams.

If we win, and everyone above us in the rankings loses (with no loser points),
YOUR DETROIT RED WINGS WILL BE TIED FOR FIRST PLACE.

Shit like this is why you punch someone in the junk when they quote statistics to you.
