On The Heels of An A2Y Classic, It’s a Baby Brother Live Blog

It’s hard to predict what the cause will be.  It could be a playoff game, a winning streak, a playful joke played by the swaddled, babbling 8-pound, six-ounce Christ child on us, the unsuspecting innocent Wing fans (in other words, a losing streak). You just never know what’s going to prompt a Live Blog for the ages.  Friday night we brought Pinky back into the fray and I think that may have lit some sort of sick fire under the 19.  The result?

WestWing summed it up about midway through, and it just went downhill from here:

1) Bill would blow Wally the hairdresser, but maybe not Gator, although his daughter would.
2) Pumpkin beer sucks unless it’s filtered through a homeless drunk’s ass.
3) Calquake is the perfect antidote to that not-so-fresh feeling (i.e. when you smell like a homeless drunk’s ass)
4) Hudler goes both ways, and has apparently become really damn good at it.
5) Alcohol is a helluva drug.


Why do I think references to homeless drunks’ asses are going to become the norm?  Absolutely classic work.  Bravo to every one of you.  Anyone who doesn’t find that funny can just go ahead and suck it. But don’t leave because we’d like to make fun of you for the next several hours.

On to today.  Baby brother’s in town and we haven’t beaten that little bitch in Detroit in like two years. That is disgusting and it must end. Today. If the playoffs started this evening?

We’d get San Jose. That’s a whole other topic, an entire series of posts that would range from obscene overconfidence to gun-in-the-mouth pessimism.  But, with a loose puck here or a beer aerated through the crack of a homeless man’s ass there, it could easily be the Cawks in the first round. 

The wary among us would say that’s a bad matchup, the talented, young Hawks with the “strong core”.  The rest of us, actually all of us really, would say Chicago’s goaltending is so frigging bad that we’d go all Raylen Givens on their asses to the tune of 5 games. Max.

But that’s April.  Jesus. Just typing that reminded me the playoffs are only a month away. 

Fuccchhhhhh….ahhhh well.  It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

I don’t know what it is, but A2Y has a way of calling to me whenever a new LB goes up.

Today’s a great day to just maul the living sh*t out of the Hawks, remind everyone that DET is a bear at home, and cause the Hawks and their fans that much more grief.

Oh, and to do it without Datsyuk or Lidstrom?  Man… you KNOW that’d hurt.  Those Lackhawk fans would say “ButbutbutbutTOEWS!”, but that’s still only their top forward, not their top d-man as well.

Today’s a great day for Mursak, Ememrton, Connor (if he plays), and any other kids ot all score.

You know… just to remind everyone that the future’s cool too, and that the Hawks have very little present, and almost no future at this point.

Good day, Bitches. Thanks Master Chief, for the reminder above.

Time to change the trend. Law of averages, blah, blah, blah.

This.

They are scrambling, and whining, and talking about how this sure wasn’t what they pictured for their season at the beginning of the year. That’s because they are one-hit “wonders” (a/k/a losers) who can’t even imagine the kind of year after year after year success the Red Wings have had, and will continue to have.  (And yes, no goaltending.)

Hope the Wings - and a few other teams - knock their sorry asses right out of the playoffs.  Let’s start today!

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Like a the owner of a bad comb over, Cawks fans just can’t accept the fading glory of what once was.  They’ll never know what its like to be a part of one of those shining cities where the sun of championship caliber hockey never sets, and it burns them up inside.  I’m looking forward to things being set straight at the Joe.

Thanks for today’s primer Chief.  LGRW!

The last game I felt like Maxwell the Pig. Just along for the ride. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Here is praying the ride continues.

And for those that want to know, it has snowed everyday this week. There is aboot 30 inches of snow in the drive way since it was last cleared of snow. I think that was Thursday, but do not know for sure. Da wife has been on the other side of the county visiting her Mom, so I have been batching it.

The only thing I know for sure is it is game day.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

True, Thomas had a bad day giving up 4 on 17 shots but…when they gave up 33…that’s not going to get you too far if King 37” pads goes down.

I’ve never been to the UP.  A little google search informed me about what a Yooper is… *now hanging my head*. 

Anyway, my experience with lake effect weather is limited to the Lake Erie region, but given that, I bet life around Lake Superior can be a bear.

Nope. NHL network is showing twenty cent being a c*nt for 36 hours. Looks like I’ll keep watching this AHL game and waiting for real hockey.

Is the game on NHL network today?  I have a sick sinking feeling that I’m gonna get stuck watching the shit CHI broadcast, even though the Wings are the home team (which I feeling should be the controlling factor in that decision).

I went to the grocery store a few minutes ago to get some chicken wings. While I was in the checkout line, two guys in NASCAR shirts got in line behind me, each holding a 12 pack of Bud Platinum.

I just busted out laughing, and everybody looked at me like I was weird or something.

Exactly how do you engage a total stranger in conversation about how his beer tastes like it has been filtered through a homeless guys ass crack?

Ask them, “Have you ever noticed that your beer smells like a pit stop at a Demolition Derby?”

This is the problem with schools in America today.  How is it that each and every LB isn’t required reading?

I like to start by introducing myself.  Kinda gets the “total stranger” thing outta the way.  As for the homeless guy’s ass crack, wow there’s no real easy way to tackle that one.
