Two In A Row

Once again the Wings will try to put together two wins in a row, which, if it happens, would be the first streak of this season.

Hope for the best.......

It's a Live Blog!

Hello Kate, thanks for starting the live blog.  The Wings climb to the SCF begins tonight.

Which year, I don’t know, but it begins tonight.

I’m done complaining about the personnel decisions, but for the life of me I don’t understand why Sevchnikov is not playing in GR or in Detroit? Who benefits from him sitting in the press box… confused

I got nothing against the guy but why is Helmer on the first line? Brome- Seltzer deserves it more.

I noticed a little more pep in Neilson’s effort so far tonight. maybe that was the reason?

But Nielsen is playing….. how wrong is that? Rewarded for not being claimed off waivers…..

That just shows the state of the league right now. It’s not top caliber NHL hockey this season. Not knocking Glennie here. Just sayin…...

I would not trade LGD for anyone. He is one of the building blocks needed in my opinion.

I’m still a fan of Karen Newman, but it may be time to come to grips that she’s not going to respond to my stalkin, overtures.  I will probably move on to Katheryn Winnick, Viking Queen and recent TV murder investigator.

I have to admit, I would let her punch me in the face just as much as she wanted to.  And if history is any indication, after she got to know me, she’d want to.

I mean it says that LGD can “turn it on” with or without fans.  We all already know that though, being familiar with his background and what he did in college.  Compare to a player such as much maligned Mantha.  Big Tony seems to feed off the fans, and is not well geared for the 2021 League.

No judgment, just observin’.

Bright lights, big city. They give these kids big money way too soon. Glennie came in when a player had to prove something before the big payday.

I don’t know if any of you drink Labatt beer but some info. I don’t work for them or get money or anything.

offer good until 2-28-21 for some of the stuff. I am going for the chair - smile    and maybe a hat.

Three friends stranded on an island find a magic lamp containing a genie. He grants them each one wish. The first wishes he were off the island back home. The second wishes the same. The third guy thinks to himself, “I’m lonely. I wish my friends were back here.

What a cool chair Poobah. Last time I was in the thumb, Labatts was like 11 bucks a case. That was a couple of years ago.

Hi and thank you Kate!

Hello 19!

My favorite poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti died today.

I meet him multiple times at City Lights book store when i lived in San Francisco. I mention this because we have lost our connections with these types of people and characters because of netflix, MTv before it and so on. I look at Mickey as our last connection to a past maybe better reality and i hope he lives to a healthy 101 also.

Lets go Redwings!

Man Buffalo is a mess. They may have better talent than Detroit right now, but they’ve been going 10 years without playoffs and that Jeff Skinner contract makes Nielsen’s deal look like a walk in the park.

Last time I was in the thumb

The offer is good in different states. - go to the website if interested - but a knit hat for one case. pretty good deal.

I wish there was more time but i just found out about it last game.
