Wings, Hawks, Gary’s 13 Game Regular Season: Perfect.

I'm not going to lie. I'd forgotten about this thing until about thirty minutes ago.  Thankfully for you, I usually only need about six minutes to type a standard fact-based, non-biased work of art to keep you happy for a pop or two.

The Hawks are undefeated, invincible, a wrecking ball of talent and starch.  

The Wings are battered, Helm-less, down three defensemen and laden with rookies, castoffs and Swiss men.

Surely, all signs point to a Chicago walk in the park.

Right?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

That is absolutely the nicest way I have been called stupid in a long,long time.

Chief, you are a natural for the diplomatic corps when your sailing days are over.

Wonder if it is too much to hope that ‘he who shall not be named’ has two good games in a row.
