Only 47 Left…Let’s Live Blog Most Of Them

Saturday night? That was the first Lang fight.  The Stallion showed a glimpse of push-back the first twenty seconds and then he was overwhelmed by the sheer, animal strength of the hungry challenger.  Don't forget. Clubber Lang lived alone, trained alone, ate alone, washed alone, raised pigeons alone and said horrible things to Adrian at an event that was supposed to be Rocky's Big Day.

And then he laid waste to Balboa.  Demoralized him.  

Unlike Rocky III, perhaps the greatest true story in modern boxing history, I have little hope of a miracle.

Holy hell.  It wasn't just a "fail to compete," or a lot of lost "puck battles".  There was no competition and there was no battle.  That Blues team is really good.  And our Wings team is really, really mediocre.  Slow. We looked plodding compared to Clubber Lang.  

I offer you no hope for 12. Not now.  Not after that.  Mickey's dead.  Adrian's lost faith.  All is lost.  

Appollo?  We need you.  And bring that fat drunk Paulie with you. 

It's a Live Blog.  With BJs.

3 bars in Columbus in under two minutes ... And we’re not talking about OSU athletes.

So far, I actually don’t mind Camolaserglow. I’d certainly replace C(Q)hauncey with Lashoff and roll with Big E.

Gotta give ‘em credit.  Wings vs. BJs = Blues vs. Wings.  Except for the score and all.

Brunner looks like this generaton’s Bill Lochhead.  Lots of flash, not much cash.

Samuelsson and “fires wide” is going to be a common refrain this year. As it was in the past.

All that was old will be new again. Sigh.

Nice analogy but it’s a bit early don’cha think?

So an elbow to the face is acceptable on Tootoo?

Okay, amateur hour for the guys in stripes. Fair enough.

Going to end up liking this guy despite myself.

So far, I have to agree.

No, I really don’t.  And I hope after last game’s live blog you are not singling me out for a “rush to judgement”

Should have been a charging penalty when the guy left his feet jumping into Tootoo.

Shanahan should review the penalty against Smith too if they want to protect players.  Shanny won’t suspend anyone unless a player is injured.

Moi?  Never, but I am withholding my judgement until at least 10 games in.
