Driven By A Mule

Paul here subbing for IwoCPO who emailed me earlier today, asking if I could post the live blog since he was about to lose web access.

So here I am, not dazzling you with my vanilla vocabulary but rather stating it is time to ride “The Mule”.

The Wings need a strong game from Franzen tonight and if so, everything else falls into place.

If not, someone unexpected will need to step up.

So enjoy this ‘late-nighter’ and you have my permission to take Friday off.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

Randy Ladoucer, also known as “Who?”

Posted by Guilherme from Brazsil on 02/02/12 at 10:50 PM ET

From what I remember of him, he was somewhere between Lilja and Dandenault skill wise… decent D-man but a 5th or 6th at best.  Anyone else?

I chose living…

with Lisa Loeb if possible.

If not I’ll still take living but I won’t like it.

Venture Brothers is awesome, too bad there is always so much time between seasons.  Back on topic though, LGRW!

Excellent 2nd pairing Dman in the ‘80s.  Asst. Coach in MTL now.

And for the record….if you ever get the chance to go see “The Vagina Monologues”...and you don’t absolutely HAVE to unless it might mean you no longer get to see one…. I think I would’ve rather stayed home and watched two hours of the dryer making my clothes go round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round was that a dollar bill? and round and round and round…

I was cheering alberta teams in the ‘80s, so I didnt’t get a great look.  Competent 10+ year career if memory serves.

If we decline 10 PP’s in a row can we get an automatic 5 on 3 for the 11th?

They’ve been together on the PP since a week-ish before the ASG. Hasn’t helped much unfortunately.

Hmmm;...shots from the blue line.  Well I guess when you need to change things up that’s one way to do it.

Nothing on breakaways.  Nothing on power plays.  I’m going to regret staying up for this by the end, aren’t I?

Well that was uninspiring.

Seems like Kesler just goes flying into every scrum flailing like a monkey on crack.

Maybe not.  I’m pretty pleased with their play so far… but then again I live in Cali.
