Go West…

... young (old) man (men), a large portion of whom will likely not be awake for this one.

So Khan(!) states, unequivocally, that Western Canuckistan has been kind to the Wings. In fact, he's so comfortable with the statement that you don't have to read any further on the page to find it - it's right there, in the opening sentence. Go ahead, look.

No, it's cool, I'll wait. See?

Well I'm glad he's confident, because I sure as Detroit am not; Vancouver's riding a 4-game winning streak, and the Wings... well, the Wings are doing almost the exact opposite of that going winless in their last 4. I mean, yeah, they've gotten points in 2 of those, but who's counting? Calgary (5-4-1) and WInnipeg (5-7-2) are only 2 points back of Detroit (albeit in the wrong Conference), and Edmonton - oh, Edmonton - is one of those teams that'll lull you into a false sense of security, and when you're least expec -- BAM!! Surprise buttsecks. No lube. No happy ending. Just shame.

But first thing's first: Time to take care of some Swedish twins. Why? Because Cousin Red is here, lingering head cold and all, filling in for The Master Chief... and it sure as shit looks like a Live Blog to me, bitches.

Happy 25th Anniversary of your 35th Birthday, Kate! My daughter turned 9 three days ago… time sure does fly.

I know I can’t hold a candle to the Master Chief, so please just humor me during these “fill-ins.”

Hey, where’s Voox when you need him?

Thanks Red. Three of my five sons just turned 35, 36, and 39 in the past two weeks. Time has flown the coop.

And 60 is not the new 40. Whoever thought that one up has NEVER been 60. Or even 40.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Well congratulations to everyone for reaching their milestones, be it another completed trip around the sun, years of parenthood, or depraved sex moves.  +19 to all of you. 

And specifically, Happy Birthday Kate! 

So the ‘nucks are on a winning streak and the Wings are on the schnied?  You can tell me to shut my whore mouth, but since the game hasn’t started yet… I think both sides are due for a reversal in fortune.

LGRW!

I think its worth pointing out that the Red Sox are up 6-1 in the top of the seventh.  It’s good to know that Blues fans are suffering through the failure of their baseball team.

Just to give everyone a good snicker, here’s my first ever attempt at carving a design into a pumpkin:

Serrated kitchen knife, flat-head screwdriver, and a box cutter; it ALMOST worked. Better luck next year, right?

Actually we don’t have TV here.  My crappy internet sure gets a workout every day though.

Between DrudgeReport, Netflix, Hulu and The Blaze we’re good.

So admittedly I have been absent alot this season so far.  The Tigers are to blame for most of that..

SO how have the fellas looked?  Is Kronner doing ok after his thing?
