Golly. Didn’t see this coming…
Wow 6 games and you whine like a child. It makes me sick! If I was a wings fan I would tell you to man up. Maybe you need to forget about the wings for a while and work on yor entitlement issues. You blatantly offend other fans because your godly hockey team lost 6 games.
I hate the wings with a passion and I wish your journey of suffering was long and drawn out…but Im sure in a few weeks this will all be behind you and you can blog about how awesome the wings are.
Heck. I’ll blog about how awesome they are today. No need to wait. But we’ll tackle a few other issues first. That comment, of course, was in reaction to this post yesterday.
And it didn’t stop there. Oh, no. We had one fella telling us that it’s up to “us”, the Wing fans to make a course correction. Fix the problem. Band together as a fan base and Tick Tock Ken Holland will listen. I think it was Forlorn in Va who responded along these lines….if Holland ever makes one personnel move in reaction to what I or some other fan says? Fire him. Fire him immediately. Jesus. Oh, and get over to that comment section now and read JJ’s methodical deconstruction of “Pipes”. An instant A2Y classic moment.
And here’s an interesting ditty from one of KK’s new bloggers, a BJ fan.
Detroit fans, it’s time to allow yourself to sink down and be one of us for a while. Come drink our warm whiskey and try your luck with the loosest girl in town. Enjoy the game and stop getting OCD over a damn hockey team and grow to enjoy your share of the slashes.
I’m not saying Detroit won’t come back, just chill. You suck right now, we all do sometimes. Don’t get your panties in a twist. Believe it or not the Red Wings aren’t Gods of Hockey…
An interesting twist. Not only are we getting the expected brilliance from the acknowledged Wing haters, but now we have Columbus bloggers telling us to “enjoy the game” and stop getting “OCD over a damn hockey team.” Ah yes. The adults have spoken.
STFU. You’ve been blogging about a shit team for 3 minutes. I’m a Wing fan. I don’t “enjoy” the game unless the Wings win. In fact, “the game” is not what I enjoy at all. What I “enjoy” is the Wings dominating teams like yours. What I “enjoy” are Stanley Cup parades and an earned arrogance like something only Montreal fans can understand.
“Chill”, eh? I’ll pass. Thanks.
I guess this was expected. Resolve. Or at least what appears, on the public face of things, to be resolve.
“You have to go through this,” said Zetterberg, as his team prepares to host Anaheim tonight. “When we get through this, we’ll get stronger. We just have to find a way to get through it and move on.”
Yeah, you do. I’m sure in February, traditionally the month when the Wings really suck ass, we’ll all look back at this and say, “man…we needed November. It really strengthened this team to go through a stretch where we led the league in shots but scored six times in six games. From a character standpoint it was just invaluable…”. And then, in May, when we get the 5th seed instead of the 4th and we travel to Anaheim or Edmonton or LA? Talk to me then about how you “had to go through this”. Hey, how’d that Game 7 turn out last year…in San Jose? Home ice is nifty. Try it some time.
Is that “getting OCD over a damn game”? Sorry.
Khan(!), that little muck raker, brings us something that should just warm your cockles this morning. Yep, I said “cockles”. Tick Tock took a little trip yesterday and I’m betting it’s one he hasn’t made five times in fifteen years.
Coaches met individually with players before practice Friday. Holland met with team leaders. Captain Nicklas Lidstrom has addressed the team.
Tick Tock and the “team leaders”, eh? You know what’s coming. Who the hell would that be? And this won’t surprise you either…when Holland met with the “team leaders”, how’d Kris Draper react? Did he and the other leaders respond positively to that? Did Draper…oh, sorry. He “retired”. Got it.
All sorts of meetings. Quiet conversations. Hushed tones. Nods. Resolve. I’m sure everything will turn around tonite against the *#$%@& poultry. Woops. Are my “panties in a twist”?
If so, it’s because you’re wrong Nick. The Wings are “Gods of hockey.” The Cups, the banners, the rings, the consecutive playoff appearances, the fans all over the world. It’s a proven fact and a six-game losing streak does nothing to change that. Stay up on that perch and give us your sage advice, but remember…we’re Wing fans. It may not sink in. Nor should it.
