Abel to Yzerman

It’s A Skate To The Throat Kind of Sunday

I’ve never tried to hide what Game 7s do to me.  They make me a wreck, nothing but a shadow of the calm, composed, well adjusted adult I am on most other days.

For fans of other teams, with expectations much lower than ours?  A Game 7 can mean opportunity, a new way of life even.  If they win, oh the rapture. 

Us? All we imagine is horror.

So let’s avoid that shall we?

Let’s go ahead and press down.  Slice the mother through and through.  Skate to the throat.  Press down for the sake of domestic animals from Michigan to Malibu. 

13 to 12. 

9 until Redemption begins.

Okay, okay, I get it.  Just pointing out that it’s not a ‘historical’ style.  Sheesh.

Actually you’re dead on.  It’s a very recent phenomenon.  Traditional English IPA, different animal.  But enough of this. Game time!

Let’s do this.  This little one of mine hasn’t yet lived through a Red Wings loss (in three days here) and I see no reason to start today.

I try to, but it’s kinda hard to follow (no time, mostly). But I try to keep up for fantasy purposes.

Andrew,

It’s Birnie Moss, a highly peaty single malt, which is very unlike your typical Speyside,  I prefer that smoky flavor you really only get from the outer isles, and this is pretty good for something from the mainland.

Did Milbury just say that Zetterberg isn’t that good at stick-handling or skating?

Ah, my cunning plan worked.

which is very unlike your typical Speyside, I prefer that smoky flavor you really only get from the outer isles

Erm, if you want a peaty malt that tastes like an Islay malt, why not just drink an Islay malt?  You can’t say Laphroaig doesn’t bring the peat.  Or do you have an aversion to the saltiness of the Islay malts?

More ads, puck drop nowhere to be seen.  Now THIS is the NBC I remember.
