Good morning, Okie!

Skate to throat indeed. 

I know the Wings don’t have to win tonight, but there’s no reason to give Punky Toes and the Squawks any hope.

So…  Skate.To.Throat.

Same, only our last game today starts at 6pm PST. Do the math.  I’m going to be in a very difficult place, emotionally.  It may turn ugly early.

Oh, it’s worked Trish.  My DVR will be humming.  The Big Problem is avoiding any and all assholes who are checking their phones consistently.  These are the guys who don’t care about hockey but know that I care and so they want to know so they can say they knew way before I ever find out. 

I think I’ve DVR’d the last 6 games. It’s a terrible routine.  I avoid eye contact with everyone.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to throw up really soon.

G’morning, Jeff.  Slainte to the best damn GDT on the Gore.  Always thankful for it every day I read it.

The Wings lose TPH, and Disco Stu, and manage to win with defense?  STFU.

It is eminently clear that this Zata’s and Dangles’ team.  These guys are forging their own identity and all we can do is ride shotgun with them.  Take it, boys.  29 other teams want to be in this position and it’s ours.  Take it.  Own it.

Referees:
Eric Furlatt #27
Stephen Walkom #24

Linesmen:
Jean Morin #97
Jonny Murray #95

Take that for what you want.  The Wings have an immediacy to the next play.

This is usually my Red Wing game-day life.  My girlfriend, her cousin, his friend and the bartenders at Rooster’s know exactly how serious telling me the score is.

I turn into a Los Zeta if you narc on the Wings to me.

I’m gonna be like fuchin’ Zen all day.
