Underdogs? More Like Maidens With Wrought Iron Souls

Oh yes.  Yes, I did.  For the first time ever, since this blog was created back in 1978, we've welcomed Jim Morrison to a Live Blog.

Actually, that's a lie because we talked about our Killer on the Road.  And if that big bastard comes back during this playoff run, we might trot it out again.

But for now, we're together on a thin raft, floating down a beery river toward a land where hockey doesn't belong and where the Pharoa died.

We need at least one in ridiculous Anaheim.  Game 1 would be preferable, but we'll take 2 if its offered.  Give us both and it will be on whore-style. 

So here we go, into the breach once more.  We'll do nothing to influence a damn thing but what's done will influence us all to an extent that it's indecipherable to anyone but us and the pets we sacrifice.  Kiss your spouses on their lips.  Kiss your bosses on their asses.  Protect your children.  Warn your neighbors and ask baby Jesus to forgive us for the deals we make when we promise we'll exchange anything for just...one...goal.

It's a Live Blog, you bitches.  It's on.  Again.

Maiden and Iron makes me think of the one and only Iron Maiden.
Damn I was a metal head in high school. Still love some Live After Death. Long live Eddie.

OK, now I am officially stressing aboot this game.

Managed to avoid it all day, but it is upon me now, in spades.

Maybe talking to my wife aboot her wardrobe choices for her upcoming 10 day road trip might provide some distraction. Earrings are very important, I am told.

I also dig that we can get 700 comments here for the LB (over 1k in the later rounds), and this is hardly the only high-traffic, low-brow, juvenilicious Wings blog that does is own LB’s…
Posted by Primis on 04/30/13 at 07:02 PM ET

Fixt.

Unfortunately, no LB for me tonight. Hosting a dinner party for ten. Though the game will be on in the background.

LET’S GO RED WINGS!

It will happen.  A new legacy is born.

My kids of various ages have enjoyed Thomas the Tank engine over the years.  Boudreau has always reminded me of the Fat controller “Sir Topham Hatt”.  Not sure if the link will work, but someone else will find it if not.

I am familiar with Thomas the Train because of my Grandson. Thanks to you I have a whole new perspective “hrumph, hrumph,” on Sir Topham Hat, a.k.a Bruce Boudreau.

TIme to mess up others’ plans of post season success, and continue to frustrate those who would write of our demise.

Thanks for this.

I had Thai duck soup for dinner Sunday, and duck with fig sausages and grilled red peppers last night. Tonight I’m going for the duck trifecta, but I’m ordering pizza and beers.

Was a huge Maiden Head myself back in the day. “Number of the Beast” was, well, a beast.

Those bagmunchers at NBC sports are requiring a login in order to stream the games from their website.

Imagine NFL playoff games not accessible to the general public. Heads should roll.

Maybe the euro feeds will work. dammit.

Hey, it looks like we won’t have to deal with The Doc, The Dick, and the Douche Canoe because they’re in Chicago; looks like I won’t have to jam steel spikes into my eardrums tonight.

Two and a half hours until the beginning of the real season.

Pepto, check.

Bucket, check.

Let’s do this.

I play on ps3, but I have my final finals coming up and I’m trying to graduate, so I can’t enjoy videogames at the moment. Or beer. But Thursday I’ll be enjoying some tasty brews with my Red Wings.

Curious, any from MI know of Dogfish Head craft brews? Most are IPAs. It’s made in DE so I’m not sure if they sell it everywhere. I see you guys posting pics of some delicious-looking beer on here that I never tried and I’m jealous. That’s what I’m drinking lately, and if you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. Strange name, yes, but every kind I had is tasty as *#$%@& and knocks you on your ass.

I can’t imagine the keyword searches on Google that lead people to A2Y liveblogs.  I really can’t.


“Willy Wonka strangling a hooker”
“Lenin pig wrestling”
“Underoos and bath salts”

These should get you started.

a search of “Red Wings” has A2Y listed 4th among blogs.  upon search “Detroit Red Wings”, its a bit further down. 

thought I’d pass along the keywords.  =D

There was a tv show about that brewery on briefly.  Can’t remember the channel.

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.
