Night After Night, Day After Day The Live Blogs Went On and On

Seger’s back, and so is our little Russian pal Pavel.  Tomorrow, I’m going to have a recap of our day at the Staples Center.  For now? A little ditty for you.

A Kings fan sitting in front of us gave me an angry glance when I stood up and screamed for Hudler to please frigging skate. Seriously, just make some sort of Pimp effort to stop the shortie we were about to see.  I think, and I can’t be sure, that I screamed like a bitch and I’m positive that the Kings fan looked back at me smugly when that puck slid under Jim Howard’s pads into the back of the net.

And I understood that. I did.  I get these people and I know that when they look around their arenas and see these shock waves of red, it makes them sad.  So, a shorty?  Be happy young man. Be happy.

Later…Misconduct.  Actually, it’s spelled differently.  Wait for it.  I’ll explain. 

Same Kings fan, different circumstances.  Wings are up 3-1 and not everyone in our section is quite as happy as they were an hour or so before. But that would change. Because Midwestern girls have a way of changing moods.

I don’t know if it was all slow motion and shit? But she was walking slow.  And when the girl with the significant chest and the Wing t-shirt stopped in front of that King fan?  She turned to make sure that he could read it all, every letter.  Slowly.  “Miss Conduct”...Like the Hollywood sign, only across a different mountain range and one that was definitely NOT made by baby Jesus.

The King fan, surrounded by family, looked back at me. Seriously. He did. He gave me this look that said, “wellll…care to defend THAT?”

I looked at him and said, “What can I say? She’s a Wing fan.  Probably from Bay City.”

Game over.  Conversation over.  Done.

The transplants were absolutely overwhelming last night and I expect nothing less tonite at the stupid Poultry Center. 

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.  In Southern California where the Michigan girls are plentiful and the high-brow boys don’t have any idea how to deal with them.

Good luck!

I went back and dug this nugget up, Chief, and would kindly like a yea or nay vote on it as sidebar material:

It’s like the trifecta of A2Y worthy: Offensive, funny, and offensive.

Nothing hotter than a defiant transplant with significant implants.

Let’s hope Uncle Mike’s message carries on against a last place team that shouldn’t have any ability to beat the Wings.

Herm, just can’t bring myself to wish you luck on your exams. If I knew then what I know now, they’d have had to drag me from college kicking and screaming. Growing up sucks ass.

“What can I say? She’s a Wing fan.  Probably from Bay City.”

Chief, that is pure gold.  God I love road games. 

I may have shared this one before, but the first time I ever took my kid to a game in Denver, I told him whenever they start chanting “Red Wings suck” (and they always do), just follow it up with “champagne from the cup”—and make sure you yell it as loud as you possibly can.  Stops ‘em in their tracks.

LGRW!

oh, and evening bitches!
