Oh Good…Boston

I really had no idea who the Wings were playing today. I assumed they were, but I've been distracted. I can't devote my energies to three teams at once and yesterday it was the Lions and then, the unspeakable obscenity.

So, when I woke up I checked and vomited.

Ok. This would be a nice win today. I hope the Wings play well. 

But last night. JFC.  It all mixes together.  Scherzer pitched great then Osgood let one in from fifty then Smyly walked a guy and Talbot scored then Benoit came in and Legace was laying prone like a fat suicidal hooker and then Ortiz came up and Seabrook crossed the blue line.

So there's that.

It's a Live Blog bitches.

And thats why I only watch one sport.  That, and baseball makes me sleepy.

Bring it on Bawston, if one team don’t get ya, the other one will.

Is there any stats out there on how we usually do when we play games in the afternoon? I don’t think we are very good at these games…..and by that I mean usually bad. I might be wrong…but if anyone has this info over say a period of 4-5 years would be great. I hope I am wrong

Go Wings!!!

I’m all in as far as the Detroit Red Wings go. IDGAF about base-a-ball. I will say, however, if we think Babbles makes poor decisions, take a look at Jim Leyland. 

Thanks for the a.m LB, Chief. Bitches.

Let’s Roll!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

good lord that is exactly what I was feeling the last two Tiger games, it was waiting for the inevitable tying goal in Budd Lynch minute.

gowings it always seems the Wings have played poorly in the Saturday/Sunday Help our Ratings day games on NBC.  Maybe today’s afternoon start will upset the Bruin rituals.

Okay, so the game is listed as being on FS-D and NHLN-CA, but when I go to GameCenter Live it says it’s blacked out “because it’s being broadcast on television in your area.” I am neither in Boston nor Detroit, and I am certainly not in Canada.

Wat?

You really need to quit wasting energy.

Indeed Chief, I felt the same way.  Just great to see another Boston team today.  I haven’t been to an LB since game 1 since I haven’t watched a wings game live since then, everything has been on time delay.

I think this is the first wings game I have ever had to watch while sitting at work.  1pm on a Monday?  What’s up with that?  Needless to say, I have made sure I have plenty to get done at my desk this afternoon.

Ozzie’s a little too stiff on the air right now, but I think he’s got potential to be a pretty good analyst once he becomes more comfortable.

No sooner do I type that, and he says the Wings have been really good in afternoon games the last few years.

Clearly his history needs some work

I’m on the company’s computer right now so I can’t risk clicking on any shady video feeds.  So if anybody knows of any legitimate video feeds… you know what to do.  Please and thanks. 

Otherwise it’s Ken Kal, and uhhhh Paul uhhhh Woods for me. 

BTW… matinee on a Monday?  Fuch you Gary.

You forgot Bird elbowing Isiah and McHale punching Lambeer as Parrish goes in for an easy layup.

You know: the last time anyone watched the Pistons.

I’m not nearly as pessimistic about Gus as you. I think if the Wings play a solid defensive game, and keep the shot total for the game to zero or one, Gus can pull out a big win here.

Kinda’ like how if the Tigers can take a no-hitters into 7 or 8 innings, they sometimes have an ok shot of maybe winning?

Too soon?

It took almost four minutes, but the Wings finally got the puck in the Boston zone.

For two seconds, yes, but it’s a start

I’ll be in and out of the LB.

Because the other 95% of the country that isn’t lazy actually has school and work and everything normally because it’s MONDAY… so I have to get kids from school at 2 different times in a bit.
