Abel to Yzerman

Down. Set. Vomit.

This is where we'll be all year.  A couple games of optimism, followed by episodes creating circumstances leading to massive, violent expulsion of bodily fluids that may or may not require hospital visits or at least plane rides with Jiri Hudler. 

So, yes.  I'm a little ill. My tumbly is rumbly.

But not about the Wings. Oh no.

I don't know if I, or my family...to include my dogs Arleigh Burke and Bos'n, or my cat, Haze Grey...can handle another loss to Ohio.

I'm serious. 

It's too much. I can't even think about the Wings right now. Do I want them to win tonight? Yes.

Do I think they will? I don't have the capacity for that kind of clarity to consider it

I need a Michigan win tomorrow. 

I effing need it.

LGRW, FKHASAP and LET'S GO BLUE.

It’s a great Black Friday evening for a hockey game.  L.G.R.W.

And, oh yeah… the Lions suck.

How true, but they are now approaching year 61 of the rebuilding program. LOL  Now the Red Wings need two points tonight. Who knows they might actually play well tonight. Hoping. confused

Dear Creator of the Universe: Please don’t let that happen to our beloved Wings.

Evenin’ Bitches!  Imma hoping for Mantha to score a few and shut Blashill’s pie hole for a while. Who draws up the game plan? Eh?
Win as a Team. Lose as a Team. Don’t be such a bitch and call oot one guy. 

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Funny how Blash doesn’t find good things to talk about. If there wasn’t anything good to talk about then the whole team sucked so call them all out then.

If you guessed I making a turkey sandwich on multigrain sandwich thins, you’re right. How old is this canola mayonnaise? There must be a date stamp. There it is, it says 11 August 15. This can’t possibly be 2 1/2 years old ?

Seeing Blashill’s clip on Mantha in the pregame really, really pisses me off all over again.  Fuching coward, he is.  Fuching coward who only calls out young kids, even while the vets are the ones in the corner eating paste and jamming Cheetos in their ears.  That’s a total piece of sh*t move.

I fear that tonight will be when the team decides to give up and just see if they can lose out until Blashill gets the axe.  I’m going to fear that now every single game until he does get fired I guess.

This is what being a Wings fan is now.  It’s not the losing, it’s the dysfunctional hopelessness accompanying it.  I don’t mind losing if there’s a plan.

I need a Michigan win tomorrow.

You’ll be needing a different coach before tomorrow then.  Harbaugh is all bark and no bite in the big games.


LGRW.  Don’t let Brendan Smith get the better of you.

That could be the headline of any blog post between 2011 and 2017. I know that one specifically without needing to click, but Smith took quite a few stupid penalties during his time here.

The Wings performance of late says otherwise.  The team’s kids sure seem sick of this sh*t.

How on earth could anyone remember a specific time?  So many of them all just run together in memory.  It seems like it was every single game…

Agreed. It looked like a shoulder problem. I had a shoulder dislocation when I played football in High School. It doesn’t take much, just a hit from the wrong angle. sick
