Curtis Sanford Back, Red Wings Forfeit Game

From the Vancouver Sun, via the Financial Post:

Curtis Sanford will be Vancouver’s starting goaltender today when the Canucks meet the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena (4:30 p.m. faceoff, Vancouver time).

Sanford, who had to pull himself after one period in Monday night’s game in Columbus because of back spasms, pronounced himself ready to play after this morning’s game-day skate.

Great news, since last time Sanford took on the Wings was fun for the whole family.


A comment from Wings fan Animal Drew on another post of mine yesterday points out one of the bonuses to games like that last one: “Your boy Sanford shut me up last time.” 

Indeed he did. And shutting up Wings fans is hard to do, so take it from me: Sanford deserves our unwavering appreciation. (It’s the little things that make life worthwhile!) smile

Although on that note, it was pointed out to me just yesterday that the first image that shows up on Google when you search my name is of me wearing a freakin’ Red Wings jersey—the result of a lost bet a couple years ago.

So karma gets it’s sick payback from me, too.

”&*#@*$!*#^! “

(That should about cover it.)
