Babcock In Mid-Season Form

Nobody brings out the statesman in Mike Babcock like Teddy Kulfan.  Allegedly the Detroit News beat writer, Kulfan exchanged couch-side text messages with the Wing head coach yesterday.  The result?  Our first Mike Babcock Consolidated Quote of the Day for 2007-‘08.

MBCQOTD 12 Sept 2007
“I like our team Teddy.  I like it. I liked it last year and I’m liking it today almost as much as I like string cheese even though I never tear off the pieces of string, just eat it in three bites. Everybody likes their team now though, until about November when you know they won’t be liking anything in Columbus.  Nah, kidding Teddy. Don’t write that. Write this: I’m driving the bus to TC. Kenny told me so. Guaranteed it. You know, lots of people said we wouldn’t make the playoffs last year but we made them then stayed in ‘em for a long, long time. A really long time. Like weeks. Planning on doing that again.  Driver gets to pick the music on the bus.  Got “Rumours” all cued up for the boys.”

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.
