Abel to Yzerman

For more than 7 years we’ve had a few constants here at A2Y: unbiased, even-handed analysis of the greatest franchise in professional sport, a love for bright, clean, shiny fire trucks, the misuse of commas in a long-winded, descriptive phrase, puppies, hookers and the Czech midget pimps who love them, warm PBR, cheddar cheese and the unbridled, perverse joy we feel when fans of the teams we hate are sad.
The record books will tell you that goal was scored by Brendan Shanahan, assisted by Steve Yzerman and Nick Lidstrom. Don’t believe it. That goal was scored by Patrick Roy’s Enormous Ego, unassisted.
After the game, Roy put on what has to be one of the greatest postgame performances of all time, by not only showing up to the media scrum but literally refusing to acknowledge the goal happened.
Read the rest and then read it again. Then send it to a Dive fan, if you can find any. And then read it again because it’s awesome.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: firstname.lastname@example.org
