Abel to Yzerman

The Main Hatchway Is Secure

Down 0-1 to this team is not necessarily a concern.  Down 0-2 would make me sad but not fetal. 

Am I stressed?  Yes ma’am. 

But concerned?  No.

Blogging from a mobile device?  That makes me itch.  The San Jose Sharks do not. 

Live blog it.  But don’t stress too badly, too soon.

and no, I’m not particularly worried.

not considering the first period was 3-0 San Jose and the second two periods were 3-1 Wings.  once the Wings got their legs going, they were the better team.  hopefully tonight we’ll see that the extra day’s rest did them some good.

Right now,  somewhere in San Jose, Pavel Datsyuk is making Evgeni Nabokov bark like a dog.  No worries, mates.

Play like the Red Wings.

Win.
And then there will be no stress.
Until then, ...

I have a feeling we will be seeing Zata draped all over Pavelski tonight.

I’m stressed! But that’s just what I do, and because it’s the playoffs, and because it’s the Wings we’re talking about, and because…

ACK!!!

The only time I’m NOT worried is when the gameclock reads 00:00.0 and the Wings are ahead on the score.  Until then, start up a mainline of the Jameson’s IV, won’t you, VooX?  Thanks, man…

Hmm….the judges will let you pass on that one, but the correct response was “More choke than Crosby in a room full of dick.”

Well since the DC was of course working the Pens game today, at least we are spared from listening to him.

Joe Pavelski scares me.

Hopefully Mule and Buckets can start chipping in a few goals.

Well since the DC was of course working the Pens game today, at least we are spared from listening to him.

I woke up this morning and smiled because the Wings weren’t playing at lunch time and they weren’t on NBC which meant no DC. When I hear his voice I automatically feel a little uncomfortable and filled with annoyance and rage. And when I see him and his creepy eyes, I feel molested by his creepiness and stupidity.

That being said, Hello hello all
