Terrible Ted’s Got a Fever…

... and I'm not talking about Ted Lindsay.

Yeah, I had to take a swipe at the low-hanging fruit there. Sue me. Wait, on second thought, don't. I know there are more than a couple lawyers around here... 

Don't have much to say regarding tonight: Second half of a back-to-back, against a bad team, with Gustavsson making back-to-back starts; Stevie White playing his first game against his old club; the kids are playing well, for the most part, in the absence of Hank and The Ghost... I guess we'll just have to see how it goes, won't we?

I hope everyone's had their shots, because here comes another Live Blog, Bitches.

I do have a fondness for banjo pickin’.

Full disclosure. There HAVE been banjo pickers on the porch on more than one occasion.
You can use them to tell if the porch is level or not. If it is level, they drool out of both sides of their mouth.

That looks more like Trainspotting than “You sure do got a purty mouth…”

It’s what old guys DO, Red. It’s one of my biggest fears, that I tell the same story twice to the same person.

My employees are instructed to politely stop me, if they have heard the story before. If they can tell me the rest of the story accurately, I pay them $5 on the spot. Helps keep me sharp

Sorry, I’m late, 19.  Last 10 seconds and I see the Wings up 1-nil.  Bucktkets with the goal???

Ah, I see the replays now.

I just got the feeling Babcock’s feeling all justified now.

Jon Gruden said in a Playboy interview (yeah, I read the fuching articles) that he relies on his veterans a lot because he can learn from them.  They’ve been through the battles.  They can tell him if certain plays will or will not work.  Rookies can’t tell you anything.

Wonder if Babcolland’s of the same mindset since they’ve been so insistent on playing the vets over the young guys.

Different sport entirely. Hockey has 90% more spontaneity than pro football, which relies heavily on more or less scripted plays.

Either you can execute in the free flow of hockey, or you cannot. Age is irrelevant, more or less.

Evenin’ Bitches. I saw Uncle Tedophile and the Amboy Dukes in January, 1970, at the Birmingham Palladium.  He was wearing a pelt, to sort of cover his man parts.
