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.

What was that one for?

Atkinson went flying at the bottom of the screen.  I assume Quincey shot his feet out from under him with a boomerang, but that’s pure speculation.

Palm, meet Face.

Face, this is Palm.

Whenever Q is on the ice, prepare to have many conversations.

Lashoff clearing it out. Heeeeee. I’m rarely right, but I like it when i am.

I really love the Red Wings PK.  How many years has it been since they’ve even been respectable?  Three?  Four maybe?

I guess it’s only cross-checking when a Wing does it.

And Franzen keeps Datsyuk from doing something with the puck.

There is not enough alcohol in my house to alleviate this.
