No Such Thing As A Meaningless BJ

Our Uncle Mike has a vision.  To him it may be benign and ritual.  An annual rite almost, another matchup with another baby brother, one we’ve seen many times before.

Teddy Kulfan

“It looks to me we’re playing Nashville in the first round,” Babcock said. “Two really good teams. It’s going to be a battle.”

Yes it will, and with that battle should come a spirited discussion about which GM strengthened their team considerably on 28 February…and which GM did absolutely nothing.

And that little confab may turn out to be irrelevant.  For our sake, I’m hoping that discussion is short-lived and meaningless.  If, in mid-to-late April, we find ourselves talking about the trade deadline it’s going to be with a high degree of bile and angst. And we hate bile and angst. Do you follow me on this?  Our primary topic of discussion around 20 April needs to be about stifling Vancouver or exposing St. Louis.  If we’re talking about Tick Tock’s deadline standpattedness, that’s going to mean something horrible happened the days leading up to that.  With me?

But that’s a Hasek-held chit chat we can table until it’s absolutely necessary.  For now? Home ice is the beautiful baby we need to be cradling.  It’s a soft little bunny to be cherished, a Charlevoix Saturday morning with a pleasant hangover, one that doesn’t hurt, but just lingers until you make the decision that it’s time banish it the only way you know how, with another PBR.

As good as a BJ may sound right about now, this one needs to be trounced and stifled. For the sake of home ice, it really needs to be wasted and scoffed at.  Disregarded and slapped away for the sake of the greater good.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.  Bubba’s on the horizon and, by god, we need to see that bastard a possible four times instead of three at the House that The Captains Have Built.

It went in and out off the top back bar inside the net faster than zebras could react.

And the ref almost had a dislocated shoulders waving his arms just in case.

I didn’t get to mention it since I got here halfway through the first, but is there anyone who actually likes listening to the trio of Emerick, Olzyck, and McGuire.

That wasn’t a good defensive play by Prospal on Fil, Edzo.  That was a cheapshot, you idiot!

Brett Lebda is ranked tied for 206th amongst all Red Wings for career goals scored with 18.

Well I stand corrected, 206th overall? That’s quite something. Where on earth do you get these stats? And so quickly at that?

I quite like them, purely because they help me get on with some reviews I need to do. I just turn them down and turn the music up, up, up.

Two straight icings, then Miller doesn’t make sure to get it deep.  Those are the type of stupid mistakes the Wings have to stop making.

That would actually be better.  A hooker with a rusty hemostat and a braided steel fishing line tying my scrote into two separate hemispheres would actually be waaay better.
