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.

Tony Perkis, can you do me a favor and check your email address.  Notifications of comments are getting kicked back to me, saying your email doesn’t exist.

Usually not a problem but in a live blog, they build up.  Thanks.

What I find even more strange is that a search for Juvenilicious only brings up this blog for the top 3…

I currently don’t have the means or time to go to MI for a game, but I will be at a game ASAP. Hopefully I can make it before they move from the JLA. Definitely need some suggestions on the local brews and bars.

I remember reading some reviews of Cheli’s and they weren’t that good, but I’d obviously take advice on here.

Also, have a friend living in VT now, and I was lucky enough to enjoy Heady Topper. http://www.beeradvocate.com lists it as their #1 brew. Think they only sell it in VT, but again, if you have the opportunity, it is a must-try.

I put up the banners tonite. One is in the front window. When my Grandson saw it he said ” Ahhh, Christmas.”

Sweet child-o-mine!

Don’t know why this is bugging me: Did anyone see the pre-game studio bit, when they first showed The Cup? Liam was giving Milbury a little shit about it by saying “How do you feel being that close to it, Mike,” and Milbury was like “Shut up, Liam. Just shut up,” and getting all pissy bitch about it?

Does he think anyone—anyone at all—is afraid of him? I mean, I’m sure his shoe-wielding prowess is second to none, but seriously man, get over yourself.

I know we’re only twenty minutes and four teams into the 2013 post-season, but, damn, the Blues are looking amazing.

Ken Hitchcock, Alfred’s grandson, I believe, has his team ready to play.

They are trying to make Milbury into an American version of Don Cherry, with no success at all.

Grapes can be a xenophobic clown at times, but he is more real, and likable, than Milbury.

Milbury and Dale Tallon are similar. The terrifying thing is Tallon actually has the reigns to a team currently.

Actually,  the playoffs became a bigger deal than Christmas as my 5 sons grew older.  Most of them remember the “Good Wings”.  My youngest being born in ‘83.  The Grandson is 3 on Saturday. He also will grow up knowing the “Good Wings”.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!
