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.

Brunner scores his first goal! But, it doesn’t count as a point for his stats. Right?

I’ll take the win anyway I can.

So I was talking to my son and daughter about the Wings’ new additions this year.  When we came to Coasldkfajleishgsld I mentioned his injury history.

My daughter says…“Sheesh….what are his bones made of egg shells or what?”

All through the game Saturday night when he kept getting dinged up, we just laughed.  I couldn’t help but picture an egg getting cracks in it.

So tonight it’s an omelet.  And why am I hungry all of a sudden

Fredo must have drank pop as a kid instead of milk. Get ready for a bunch of nail biting games 19. With the piss poor special teams we’re in for it. Until tomorrow. Tip the staff well in the Hasek .

Great play-by-play, bitches, I enjoyed watching the game through your beer goggles. 

There was more mood swings at A2Y tonight than at a menopausal support group.  Going by how this team seems to age us, the 19 could be called one.

Queef-berry Douchebag seems to be the early whipping boy, along with the Mule.  Let’s see how quickly, and on whom, the 19 choose to use our two buyouts in sheer drunken rages as the season progresses.

Chief you had to go and give Carlo a nickname, didn’t you?  I warned you and you ignored me, Raspberry, maybe next time you’ll listen to your bartender.  Some say you found about Filipino lady-boys the hard way after not listening to a bartender’s warnings.

Just because I’m an cocky bastard, here it is again:

Don’t bother learning his name, let alone give him a nickname.  Carlo is fragile, he’ll spend a lot of time injured because of the most ridiculous incident. 
Farm Rule: Don’t name the ones you know aren’t going to make it.
