Roll The Dice…One More Time

South Detroit doesn't exist.  Many richards have told us that many times.  Something about geography and bottled water. I don't know the precise equation, having dropped out of Northern before I could attain my prestigious associate's degree in advanced Pharmacy.

Physically, it's a myth.

But spiritually, in a place where we live that is not real life, it's everything.  It's less than a minute to go and it's a Wing lead in a game that means way too much to way too many.

Steve Perry has been replaced by a young Filipino who sounds exactly like his predecessor. It's weird.  But it doesn't matter. It could be Al Sobotka singing it. It just doesn't matter. It's the timing.  That's everything.

I need to hear that song.  Tonite. 

Two weeks ago we were at some middle school function. There was a band. They were not very good, but don't tell them I said that.  They were playing a song with flutes and recorders and silly drums.  Somebody had a trumpet.  I recognized the tune but I couldn't place it.  My wife, who knows every Wing score before I watch the game on DVR but somehow doesn't give away the result and do you have any idea how hard that would be? She nudged me and said, "that's got to be an omen."

It was that song.  I know. Like I've said...it's cheesy.  But holy hell if it isn't the greatest thing ever because when we hear it, you know the end is nigh.

We need to hear that song. Tonite.

It's a Live Blog, bitches. For all that's good in this world, baby Jesus.  You adorable, drooling, swaddled and innocent little bundle of Helm.  Do it. Give us this game. We'll be good. I promise.

1 to the WCF.  5 to the Burning.  9 to 12.

Rambo and i will be tuned in.  Unlikely to comment on the LB, too much stress.  Lets all hope for a 7-1 statue of liberty type game. 

Yea, thats the ticket.

South Detroit doesn’t exist.

Not since they changed the name to Southpointe.

Wouldn’t it be nice for Mule to show up and score 7 goals?

Give us this game.


No one is going to give us anything. The Wings have to take this game, or, they deserve nothing. 

Take this game. Give no quarter.


Let’s Roll.


LETS GO RED WINGS!!!!!

I just grilled out in the the garage tonight because it’s freaking Memorial Day and rain & 50F doesn’t change that.  No f**ks were given.  You-Ess-Ay, You-Ess-Ay!

Wings aren’t going to give any f**ks tonight either.

Like I’ve said…it’s cheesy.  But holy hell if it isn’t the greatest thing ever because when we hear it, you know the end is nigh.

It’s buying in.  You buy in to it, others buy in.  Everyone buys in to it.

It’s kinda’ like how in Hawaii on 4th of July those lunatics starting singing heartfelt renditions of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to fireworks (seriously… someone really should have warned us about that ahead of time…).  It means something to them, so to them it’s f**k everyone else.

No f**ks given.

Somewhere some clueless Avs fan thinks that means Tootoo is getting his number raised.

But really COL is wondering why DET’s taking so long raising Dekeyser’s.
