You Can’t Always Get What You Want

But, allegedly and according to Mick, providence somehow assists in providing what your spiritual advisors determine to be your greatest need.

Interesting.

Because I’d say we have the whole “wants” thing covered.  Now? Well, now it’s up to Tick Tock to determine the “needs”.

Jimmy D Jr.:  Pencil The Wings in For NYC

In the last few months Chris Chelios has become the live, local and late breaking news maker for Wing fans.  Blake to the Wings? Absolutely.  McCarty to the Wings? Yep.  Fedorov to the Wings? Sure.

Now?

Khan(!)

Wings defenseman Chris Chelios claims the Wings will be playing the Rangers in that rumored outdoor game at Yankee Stadium next season.

“I heard Detroit’s playing,’’ Chelios said after practice Monday. “Awesome, to be part of the last event at Yankee Stadium would be something special.’‘

“Not an exact date,’’ Chelios said. “I was talking to someone (who) mentioned that it might be a done deal already. I hope it is, anyway.’‘

Train Delay

I didn’t see the hit on Kopecky, and I didn’t see Downey’s antics, and I didn’t see Rafalski’s body slam of a guy who outweighs him by thirty pounds.  No, I wasn’t passed out.  Damn you all for thinking that.

The Class of ‘89

Just saw an ad for some sort of cheesy melt thing now offered at a big-named Mexican food franchise.  The slow-mo imagery of cheddar cheese inspired me to post instead of continue to flip between MSU/Domers and UM/Penn State. 

Larry Wigge’s written a nifty little diddy on Dallas Drake and mentions the Wing draft class of ‘89: an amazing effort.  Lidstrom, Konstantinov, Fedorov, Bob Boughner, Mike Sillinger and Drake.  Think about that:  if not for Konstantinov’s misfortune in June of 2007, you’d probably be looking at three hall of famers drafted by one team in one year. 

Plenty of good quotes in Wigge’s story from former teammates and opponents.  Makes me wish we’d picked him up three years ago when I started whining about it.

”Players often ask you if you caught the license plate on that truck after you get plastered into the boards,” Foote said. “When you play against Dallas Drake, you have that license plate memorized. You expect to be pounded by him. Not a more fierce and honest competitor in the game.’‘

This guy’s going to win some fans in Detroit..quickly.
