Abel to Yzerman

One LB At A Time

I can’t be George Malik.  I can’t be the guy who stomachs up and soldiers on no matter the circumstances.  I’m fetal now because here I sit in the same sports bar where I’ve watched us lose five games this postseason. 

What I should do is pay up and get the hell out of here.

The odds are so sickeningly stacked.  This hole is so deep.  Shallower now than two days ago?  Yep.  But steep. 

So many questions.  Was that their whole load on Thursday?  Was it simply a San Jose letdown?  Can Jimmah muster it again?  Can the Mule?  Will I literally piss myself if the Wings fall behind tonite?

There are millions rooting against you tonite.  Thousands against the 19 of us in particular.  Of course only about five of them will show their faces because the Emperor made them register.  But oh they want you miserable in the worst way. 

And all we can do is sit and hope that tomorrow offers an opportunity to smirk for one more day.  Because if that arrogant grin returns tomorrow?  Well.  All bets are off bitches. 

It can happen.  The odds are disgusting. But it. Can. Happen. 

Mainly because I switched seats.  Let’s live blog this motherfucher.

I’m actually kind of concerned with how happy that just made me.  Who else has adopted the Habs for the rest of the post season?

No matter what happens from here on out, the Eastern Conference Champions will not have had enough points to make the playoffs in the West.

So will this jar the Chief or The Bartender out of the padded room and on to the controls for a post or three?

I’m not necessarily adopting the Habs, but I am absolutely overjoyed right now.

Yes. But it’s going to be brutal to see them get romped if they make it to the finals.

The Stanley Cup hangover is a bitch.

If the Wings couldn’t do it, at least the Pens won’t win the Cup.  I take consolation in while both teams lost in the second round, we lost to the first place team in the league while the Pens lost to the 19th place team.  FMAO that’s funny.

I have been so busy lately, this blog has been ignored.  I will make it up tonight with a post full of anger, virtiol, and sarcasm.  Just the way I like it.

I can mention OT, since I don’t care about jinxing either team.  Can I still hope for a nuke bomb to drop on Philly?

I actually shut off my daughter’s “Total Drama Island” and made her sit and watch the the last two minutes of that glorious Penns defeat.

And there was much rejoicing.

Gah!  Half way through the second period of the Boston game, we lost power.  So I didn’t get to see the Habs win or Boston lose.  I’m still hoping for a Boston/Montreal series, but Boston is driving me nuts with throwing away 3 games in a row.

rosby cries about the officials. what a joke:

“I was stunned,” rosby said. “I don’t know how that’s a penalty 10 seconds into the game.”

Didn’t even make him flinch. But yea, definitely a big time save.

Briere is impressive. Reminds me of Kane. Shifty, effective, tiny bitch.
