Update: It took us 30 hours to reach the $1000.00 goal. We may open up donations again soon, so hold on to your cash if you’d planned to donate. Thanks to all.
Ok. Details are being hammered out but the bottom line is this: we’re bringing Guilherme from Red Wings Brazil to Detroit for a Wing game. Why?
Because he said he’d never been to one, and we think it’s going to be cool to go ahead and fix that little problem. He’s never met another Wing fan in his life, except for the 19 via the Gore. He’s never been to the States, much less Detroit. So we’re fixing that too. He’s watched games on the internet, on the tube occasionally. He adopted the best team in hockey and now we’re going to pay him back for his loyalty.
The kid’s gonna see the Gordie statue. He’s gonna smell the stale beer aromas of Joe Louis Arena. He’s going to see the blur that is Darren Helm, all in person.
You want in? Of course you do.
Click there and let’s get this thing rolling.
We’re going to cap donations at $1000.00 until we figure out exactly how much we’re going to need. If that’s way too high…we’ll figure it out. That probably means a lot more beers for the 19 who are in attendance for the game. Oddly? We’re looking at 26 March against Minnesota. Irony rocks. That’s a Friday.
More details are all over the place, in the last five or six posts here on A2Y. We need to consolidate that stuff. If you’re actively involved in the planning of this, email me. For instance: if you are donating airline miles, lodging, or if you’re organizing block tickets or maybe even a suite. Much easier over email than here, obviously.
And if you don’t know Herm? Meet him.

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.
