The Literate One Turns 40…errrr 38

Update!!!:  1059 EST.  OTC makes a very good point in the comments below.  Baroque’s consistent attempts to raise the level of conversation here could be solved by simply banning her from from the premises.  I’ve created a poll below.  It’s very important that you vote.  We’ll make it a caucus if you want.


We’ve had some pretty enlightening moments here at A2Y the last twelve months, moments that would leave an outsider unfamiliar with our “norms” shaking their heads—and perhaps believing that most of us are “challenged”, or 8 years old. 

And we’re cool with that. Well…18 of us are.

You see, over the course of the last year one reader in particular has tried to maintain a semblance of order.  Every time conversation dips to a Darren Garcia, or Pepe Lopez, level…she’s been there to raise the bar, so to speak.  When the trolls come-a-callin’ from St. Louis, or Denver or even Pittsburgh, she’s always been the one to steer us back on course with her big three-syllable words and some wacked out sort of philosophical yet domestic but still elitist in a not so condescending way discussion. 

Yep, it’s Baroque’s 38th today.

Check out her birthday ode to the hometown hero over at HTT’s.

...a hard-working, grinding hockey player more than a useless stiff on skates. He also doesn’t automatically fight when challenged if the game is going in Detroit’s favor and a fight might only serve to fire up the opponent, and not all tough guys will turn down a fight even when it might be the best thing for their team’s chances to win.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
