Jackson Browne Is Banned Forever

Stupid move on my part yesterday.  I introduced one JB, then concluded with another JB and in the process pretty much guaranteed a shutout at the hands of some BJs.  

Yesterday reminded us that (a) the Wings are not ripe with talent so grit is kinda required these days, and (b) we are in for a long stress-filled journey the next two months if Detroit can't beat Columbus in Columbus.  Because if the Wings can't win there, they're not going to win in Anaheim, Chicago, San Jose or practically any other town. There's also this (c): the Wings powerplay is disgusting.  Not just on the road. Overall. It's obscenely inept.

But of course, since they're at home, playing the same team that whipped them yesterday, with almost the identical lineup Detroit iced in shitbag Columbus 24 hours ago...they'll go like 4 for 7 with the man up and win 8-1.  Because Howard means that much, right?

Wrong, bitch. Wrong.  Uncle Mike?  

If the powerplay isn't working, that's on you.  Not Tom Renney or any assistant before him we saw fit to lay waste to.  No.  You might have delegated a few things but when it sucks it's on you.  And if a team can't win on the road, in Columbus? That's on you, too.  And if a team loses a season series to...Columbus?  

That's you too, big boy.

But we still dig you, Mike. We do.  It's just getting harder to type it.

It's a Live Blog, bitches. No songs. No gimmicks. No predictions. Just a steamroller full of tar, warm beer, some out of date cheddar and an ass-ton of stress.

Groundhog Day.

For losing the season series to the BJ’s, Uncle Mike should have felt tremendous shame, resigned and committed seppuku.

Watching the Wings this season is like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

I’ve zero confidence DET can even go .500 on the road.

Especially if the MC keeps straying from Bullet Bob or Gordon.  Geebuz man, get a grip.

Spoken like a true sailor MC. The captain of the ship is totally responsible for all the goings on on his ship. Even if he is banging hookers on shore leave, he must man up. Ya hear us Babbles.

Go Wings and get er goin.

Can’t LB tonight… or even watch the game.  Not sure I could stand a repeat of yesterday.  Gotta dinner date instead.  Here’s to making Whitefish Bay.

As long as he stays away from Seals & Crofts and Starland Vocal Band, I think we’ll be OK.

Perhaps the MC5 could save the season?

I’m thinking Battlestar Galactica might be a better use of my time today. It’s hard to watch 8-13-11 and think the Detroit Red Wings are playing.

A neighbor of mine is the distributor for Flying Dog in my town, and his pappa started the company.  The Gonzo Porter is the bomb, as is the Snake Dog.
