Abel to Yzerman

Shanahan’s Jig

And I’m ready to hold up the city’s hockey coverage for the 19.

I’ve got my H2H hat on so that 19 bitches are always on my mind.

I’m rocking the blazer and v-neck t-shirt because I’ve got more style than professional journalists.

I’m wearing tight rock-star jeans to show off that I’ve got more balls than professional journalists.

And I’m wearing high-top sneakers, because that is how I roll.

I bring you this highly professional fashion report as not only will I be fashionable, I intend to be fashionably late for the Shanahan Summit.

Let no one mistake me for a professional journalist.  We can’t have that, bitches, now can we?

I wonder what questions he’ll pull from the suggestion box.  My favourite was the one for Gary asking if he’d ever paid for his own entry to a hockey game prior to being commish.

Hey VooX, don’t forget your cup (not Stanley). That’ll put the deep diggers into a tizzy. Looking forward to your reporting.

I dunno, for some reason the words of Sarah Silverman come to mind as advice,

“Don’t be a Dick”

What happens in A2Y stays in A2Y, because society won’t understand it.

Also the Emperor may not have any clothes, but he has worked tirelessly for five years without clothes to build the best true fan-based hockey site where we are free to frolic with no limits and pursue a life of religious fulfillment, and I would hate to see His Rep tarnished by his association with us becoming public knowledge.

Good luck, Voox.

Remember, do us proud.

If you are ever invited back to any type of NHL function like this again, we’ll know something went terribly awry.

That is epic, and I think I know the answer to that question.

Seriously, kudos(TM) to whoever asked that one.  And here’s to hoping the Barkeep asks it of the tiny leader of large men who play hockey.

You will have to let us know if he tries to make you kiss his ring when you approach him. Or if he has to stand on a crate so that he can look you in the eye.

  Not to toot my own journalistic horn, but that was me ( I )  who suggested that query.

  I hope Voox has more self control than me, because if I was that close to lil gary - I might do something I may regret.

he’d have to stand on a crate just to head butt a normal person in the chin.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
