The F Stands For Finger And The Finger Could Really ______ Us All

Thanks to the Emperor for covering me the last few LBs, and thanks to all 19 of you for the patience. January was a slow-moving month on America’s Favorite Carrier and I already told you what February has in store for the weak-hearted Wing fan. I warned you. I told you what kind of pain was on the horizon.

And now it’s here.  Jimmy says it could be two games but then I read it might be 4 weeks until Jimmy said it was more like two weeks he’s hoping because six weeks sucks the worst kind of ass. Seriously. We’re all dead in six weeks if that’s how long Tiberius Howard is out.  Oh, and you want to trade for a backup goalie?

Don’t bother because whoever we get isn’t gonna be good enough to do the job we need done to get what belongs to us.  Baby Jesus, that tiny tadpole of love, adores us but even he can’t guarantee or even decree a Cup if we’re down to a backup goalie some shitbag team was willing to deal in February.  So…it’s James F. Howard or bust, and I’d prefer me some Jimmy if it’s all the same to you.

Transplants. Transplants galore in Gary’s hometown of Phoenix. They’re running amok, paying outrageous sums, drinking cheap beer and laying waste to the women of Glendale, if they’re single and clean…the transplants, that is.

It’s a Live Blog bitches.

the Pathetic Play and the PK of Death.  This team is going nowhere this year until they figure out how to play special teams.

Wings PP continues to suck.  Giving up a short handed goal?  Way to make a lousy PP even worse.

Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat.

Typical start for the Wings, eh, my friends? 

If not for Bubba and their goddam whistles, that coyote howl would be the most annoying thing in the NHL.
