Abel to Yzerman

Forgive me for being childish, but I couldn’t resist this one. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, as well.
No, what I hate about the Red Wings are the “fans” that make everything that I just highlighted completely unbearable. The self-entitled, so far up their own team’s recent success that they can’t recall a time when the Red Wings were not a good team…at all. Most of these folks aren’t populating Winging it in Motown. Rather they are populating the comment threads at Puck Daddy and every other general hockey website; they are filling in the seats at Jobing.com Arena in their Niklas Kronwall jerseys with the tags still on and trying to throw an octopus (or more likely a squid because who can even tell the difference) onto the ice of the Coyotes barn. They’ve never stepped foot in Detroit, know nothing about even Steve Yzerman, but are “passionate” about their team…yeah, that’s why I frickin’ hate the Red Wings.
And you know when he really hates us don’t you? Of course you do. On nights like tonite. Don’t be sad little guppy. Fans of 29 other teams hate us just like you do, and for the same reasons. Same reason they hate us in Nashville and St. Louis and Chicago. Same as Toronto and Anaheim, even San Jose where the Cups won’t go. Those fans hate us because our organ-I-zation is the best on earth and has been for more than twenty years. Yours is a punchline. Suck it.

About Abel to Yzerman
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.
