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.

Sorry Malibu, I didn’t go looking. Gonna stick with the reliable quality of the usual…even if it is Versucks…might try syncing with the radio once things get moving.

Well, at least we didn’t play in the afternoon today. I still believe. We win tonight, and I think the seeds of doubt will begin to sprout in the minds of the Tuna.

LET’S GO RED WINGS(excla-fuching-mation. POINT)

“March 13, 1983, was the day I was shot. So that’s why I wear No. 13.”

O’Halloran was shot on my negative third birthday?  So all this time 13 was my number because of this and not because of my date of birth.
