I don't know how we can do it. Scientifically, it's probably impossible. But one way or another? We need to Live Blog this game without...actually...watching...it.
You guys take days like this way too seriously. Losses affect you in obscene ways, and usually the consequences are hygienic in nature. And that's not good. Today will be horrible. Chicago is too good. They haven't lost in Detroit in 8 games. They lead the league in scoring, defense, minor in possession offenses and specialty play. They're going to win the Cup, the Jennings, the Clemente award.
The Wings have no chance.
So you can't watch it. Don't even listen to it. Just comment when you feel a tingle. Or don't comment at all. Read something. Write your congressman a ditty and tell him the Navy actually, you know, belongs at sea and it might be a good idea to, you know, get his fat ass back to Washington and send us there...to sea, that is. That's a sequestration reference, by the way.
But don't watch this shit show. And a shit show it will be. Detroyet doesn't have the firepower. Our young defense is just not stout enough. Our coach is overrated and their coach is a savant.
They have Hossa. We have Franzen. Repeat that to yourself five times and then end it all.
The mountain is too steep. The only thing the Wings possibly have going for them...
...is the fact that they simply win games like this. They do and you know it. You've been looking forward to this with calm confidence when all the smart kids say we should dread it.
You don't dread it. Because you know.
Wings win. In regulation. By two goals.
Forget what I said about not watching this. That was stupid. Watch this one. It's a Live Blog bitches.

About Abel to Yzerman
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.
