Do Not Be Ashamed…It’s Happened To Bankers, Lawyers, Cops and Happy Czech Oompa Loompas

I worked Seger and our Happy Hudler into the same post title, and talked about hookers without even having "hookers" as a phrase that will catch the spammers.  Of course, the ads here on KK should be interesting for a few days.

I digress. As usual.  Hey guess what Ryan Getzlaf's faceoff stats are through four games?

He's taken 92 faceoffs and won 0.

That's a lie but it's an educated lie.

The Wings have owned him.  Datsyuk has owned him.  Zetterberg: owned him. Andersson: owned him.  Gilchrist: owned him. 

By and large, he's done nothing.  By and larger, Z and our Russian Prince have been amazing.  Tough, tireless, terrific..just like Mitch would say (our delicate genius).  Corey Perry?

That little dumpster diver hasn't done dick. 

Two ways to look at that: Wings are dominating their best players, but still tied 2-2.  Or, Wings have held them down and that can't last for long. 

Either way, it's a good reason to just start pounding warm PBR right now.

Gary's starting this game at 8 on the West Coast. (NEVERMIND IT'S 7, I THOUGHT IT WAS 8.  SHIT.) Seriously, that's late even for those of us ON the West Coast.  You suckers have to stay up until at least 2. And you will. Every single one of you.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  Take us to 6. Get us back to the Joe with a chance to clinch in front of that madhhouse.

Aloha bitches. I don’t like it when Mandingo’s stoned on pain killers.  I’m afraid it will affect his wit and I dig his wit.

I’ll do my best.

I will say that it took me about a half hour to clean the cat litter. Or what seemed like a half hour. Not a good sign.

I am feeling very, very positive about this game, though, which is a nice change of pace. I’m also feeling very, very positive about my blanket, and these comfortable pajama pants I’m wearing.

I don’t know, but with a series tied 2-2, the winner of game 5 has an extraordinary high success rate for the series.  ( DET - COL 2002 notwithstanding)

That seems “minor” compared to the news of late.  Well, unless the cowboys driving that bus were related to Slim Pickens.

Glad you dodged this most recent matter.

worked all day.  stayed late so the hottie at work who invited me out for drinks could buy me a couple.  stuck my tongue down her throat when I dropped her off.  stopped and saw my new stripper friend on the way home.  stuck other things other places.  been drinking since 6:30pm.  I’m a dirty MF’er and I hope the Wings are on the same page as me.  let’s win a dirty one, guys.  show Anaheim that we can out-Anaheim them.  show them who the real physical force in the Western Conference is.  it’s time to take this series from them.  win tonight, and Friday is just a formality.

LET’S DO THIS
