No Matter How Soft And Innocent Those Blue Eyes May Be? Don’t Trust Them or Her

Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west.  It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions.  Yes, I know.  Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm.  She swindled him though.  She led him on and then crushed his soul.

But don't blame her. Oh no.  

She may have been a conniving skank, but BB fell for it. The power of the P, I tell you.  

So one morning Seger woke up alone and realized life would be better with a harder edge.

Which leads us to Game 2.  A harder edged Wing team, led by a psychopath, or at least complemented by one.  They posed little threat in Game 1, from what Gary would let me see.  One power play goal and minimal chances even strength.  And that's why we absolutely hate the playoffs.  Four straight games of dynamic offense.  Four straight games that brought hope into our lives, then one little episode to remind us that hope isn't a plan it's just a wish.

So the plan...the plan has to be harder. Edgier. Tougher. Meaner.  And as a result, more chances. More shooting. More stress for the Swiss kid.  How would you handle the pressure if a toothless serial killer was all up in your grill, his ass wagging, stick tormenting, heaving and rumbling.  

Todd Bertuzzi will not win this game for us, but he poses a threat. And we need threats.

Maybe he did, Kindl’s shot bounced unknowingly off him.  good playoff goal.

Posted by RWBill from the open bar on The Hasek. on 05/02/13 at 07:43 PM ET

But he was there, in the right place at the right time.  His line generated the goal, I guess I should have said.

He was in the tough traffic area.  Some of our guys won’t do that.

Evenin’ all. Crown and water, large, is helping me type.

Won’t make the LB, have to be up extra early tomorrow to head to GR for the daughter’s graduation from Aquinas.

Why leave early Friday for a Saturday graduation? For the Griffins playoff game tomorrow, of course. Took her to a Wings game in 2007, and she’s been in love with the team ever since.

“Dad, what do you think about a bunch of us going to the Griffins game Saturday?”

Yup…that’s my little girl.

Chief, not sure if you remember when I emailed you a picture of my daughter and her two friends at their high school graduation, when they donned the Mighty Winged Wheel on their caps, and we posted it on the LB for a few games. I do believe they had a slight part i helping win the Cup that year.

Go Wings

No, I don’t believe you have.  Is that some sort of slang that just went about 30 feet over my head?

Rags/Caps, still have plenty of time in their game to play, so I’m praying there are no whistles and no goals or else I’m missing at least another first period of Red Wings playoff hockey.

Unless I shell out money for the NHL Network, a channel I’ll use 5 times a year. That’s one thing - it’s another thing to give these assholes any money when there was a lockout only about 4 months ago.

Give me my god damn hockey back, you incompetent twats…
