Evidence That I’m Losing It

I’m actually going to pay the Detroit News a compliment.  Nah, not really. They’re liveblogging the game.  Dana Wakiji and Terry Foster. 


Guess who I rode up with in the elevator?
Here’s a clue: they held the elevators for them. Yes, it’s the owners of the Red Wings and Tigers, Mike and Marian Ilitch. Mrs. I asked if I was staying the night since I had a wheeling computer case with me. I’m just hoping it’s not actually the whole night, as in the Canucks and Stars.

And Foster, Wing expert extraordinaire?

There are plenty of folks down here at Hockey town Cafe getting ready for the Red Wings game against the Calgary Flames.
They are dressed in Red Wing home and road jerseys. There is a woman walking around with Red Wings ribbons in her hair and high red sox. People are dressed the part but they seem subdued.

And the sidewalks have lines in them every two feet, and the clouds look puffy, but not scary and the wheels on the cars are all moving in a counterclockwise direction, and the…

I guess Foster’s back on the bandwagon, too.  I seem to recall he’d sworn off the Red Wings…

Terry Foster/Detroit News—Oct. 30th, 2006

And guess what? The Red Wings are no longer one of my guilty pleasures. I have not watched an entire game since the playoffs last season. I watch Dancing with the Stars more often than the Wings.

Back on the guilty pleasure gravy train Terry?  Oh, that’s right.  The playoffs are here.

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.
