Gather Your Family and Help Us Live Blog The Suck

Five losses in a row could very well seal the deal.  A loss tonite to the garbage Wild and we may have to Occupy JLA.  Naturally, our grounds for doing so will be much more sound than others. I’m just sayin’.

The mood is so frigging fetid and sour in the Hasek right now that we’ve got Monkey spewing some sort of metaphysical pharmacist stuff that exactly one person understands.  Gramps has been resigned to incomplete four-word phrases per comment.  I, naturally, have avoided all means of communication.  All the standard chips are falling and we’re all reacting to this farce exactly the way we’ve trained ourselves to.

Uncle Mike is falling back on his old standby too…if the Wings are sucking, bench Hudler.  Top line struggling? Bench Hudler.  Idiotic penalties from Bertuzzi? Bench Hudler.  Indigestion? Bench Hudler.

So in comes Nyquist.  The Savior, of course.

I won’t embarrass Bob Seger by bringing him to this LB.  I won’t do it.  Just get us a win tonite so the bad visions go away.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

We can only hope. Hell, I don’t care if he plays 5 minutes and doesn’t register a shot on goal. If this is a sign that we’ll do what we have to in order to get back on track, I’m all for it.

I’m already two beers down in the Hasek.  Here’s hoping for a reason to celebrate tonight.  Hopefully Nyquist can reverse the sucking.

On these unholy times, that’s another game I’ll have to miss (at least the beginning). With all the shit going on, I didn’t even read the last LBs.

Oh, well…

In comes #14, not the second coming of Shanny, but the first coming of Gustav. Let it be.

10 games played so far for the Wings after tonight, 5 of them against Columbus & Minn.

Gary, please don’t make us move to the Eastern Conference and force us to play against the

Leafs & Habs all the time. I much prefer Wild BJ’s on a weekly basis.

He tried out his motivational locker room speech on the family and the shiner was the result of it.

Haha.  Thats probably because the family are the only people in North America who can understand what he is saying.
