Yes. The Wing/Lightning (tilt, matchup) game (scrum, bonanza, faceoff, match, tete a tete) tonite is on HDNet. Damn, now that’s some good news. I can’t imagine being able to watch Derek Meetch on a wing in anything other than high definition. And of course you know why Uncle Mike’s considering putting Meech on the wing, because Kris Draper’s out with a knee. And Kirk Maltby’ s most likely out with a shoulder. And Matt Ellis is out with, yeah, a head.
Here’s my stance on Wing injuries: anyone but Zetterberg and Lidstrom. I, like you, lull myself into some idiotic rationalization regarding ailments. “As long as it’s not…”, or an even better one, “good thing he got hurt in November and not March.” I want to punch myself in the temple every time I catch myself thinking that, as if an injury in the first quarter of the season fulfills a quota that would prevent bad things in April. Godddd…idiot.
Oh…you’re above that? Okaayyyy. Lying liar.
Jeremy Bonderman’s hurt. The Lions have begun their trek to glory. Tiger Woods won again and I’m sure a redneck drove pretty fast before taking his sister out for a romantic dinner. So finding Wing news today may be tough.
But not as tough as it was a month ago. Thankfully.
