Check It Out: The Triple Deke

Pressure’s on now Tyler. 

Got an email from a triple named dude named Devereaux tonite, pointing me to his blog, The Triple Deke.

Good stuff.  He touches on all Detroit sports, with an apparent heavy emphasis on The Dynasty.  Here’s what he said about Game 5, that frigging kick to the sack.

...when I detach the Red Wings from my memories of this game and look at it simply as two teams playing for a championship, this game represented everything that I love about sports. It was so unpredictable, at times expertly played, and provided great theatrical entertainment. I’m still scarred by it, as all Red Wings fans will be for as long as they follow this team, but that on its own doesn’t describe how I remember the game. The litany of emotions that my friends and I went through while watching it—the good and the bad—stretched across a wider spectrum than any game previous to it, and I think for that reason alone I can’t leave it off of my Top 10.

Find that along with some other good stuff here, where Triple Deke lists their top 10 Wings games of all time.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
