Abel to Yzerman

Live Blog Away

Paul here with a quick one tonight.

Bill is having weather related wifi issues which is understandable in his part of the country.

This is the 666th meeting between Toronto and Detroit with the Wing having two more wins than the Leafs.

No need to worry about the black seats with red bottoms tonight, although there may be more blue in the stands.

We watch, we look at the youngsters.

Comment away.

it’s a slow creep. Every year they get hit by the greedy monster and another ad shows up somewhere.

*#$%@& Howard.

Right through him. Reimer is looking like the “de facto” starter at this point—and that’s not saying a lot.

“when you control the puck that long” I remember when Red Wing teams used to do that. Good times.

Welp, I’ve pissed my sheets, the wind has died down, and this game is depressing me even more than life normally does.

Anyone want to loan me $800?

Yeah, I wouldn’t either.

Not just that, FSD has added commercial interstitials inbetween whistles. Gotta wring out every inch on revenue they can. And if they gave you a moment for a free thought, you might stop buying stuff. Scary thought.

We used to buy all kinds of stuff every year at training camp, but its been a 3 or 4 years since we’ve spent a dime. Even the clearance stuff from the previous year is overpriced.

We had some power outages earlier today, but, nothing too long. Very windy, rainy, floody, tropical stormy.

Isn’t Cali due for a massive quake/tsunami sometime soon? Be careful for what you wish…
