Abel to Yzerman

Stuck in traffic on the way home tonite and I had a pleasant little fantasy about punching somebody right in the face. Who? The jackass who left a Windsor blackjack table in the mid-90’s because Steve Yzerman was “bad luck.” The daydream ended pleasantly just as one of my favorite tunes came on.
Neil Peart, to my knowledge, has never been a pharmacist. But this line is appropriate tonite, because it’s exactly the opposite of The Captain.
“Glittering prizes and endless compromises shatter the illusion of integrity.”
Steve Yzerman never gave a damn about any trophies but one and he didn’t compromise a single frigging thing. His integrity remains intact.
So, screw it, tonite we’ll go ahead and live blog his Induction into the Motherfu**ing Hockey Hall of Fame.
Because that, bitches, is how we roll.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
