Abel to Yzerman

Welcome Back Captain…Now Go Get Your Shinebox

Well, what did you expect?  We dig you Steve. We do.  We named a blog after you, named ourselves after you, our kids and our pets. 

But enough is enough.  You’ll be coming back soon, and I say that because I believe it. 

Steve Yzerman will be the Wings GM the day Tick Tock retires. 

But today?

Today’s not that day, and neither is tomorrow or next year.  It’s coming but not for a while.

So until then?  Come on back and bask in the glory and adulation that you deserve. 

But while you’re here, don’t forget, you know…don’t forget your place.

It’s a Live Blog bitches and we’ll remember our Captain all evening, all season, all of forever.  In the meantime, though?  He needs his ass kicked.

Laugh at the Sailor.  The Chief has the innate ability to put things in the most juvenile perspective. 

Well done, again MC.

Hola, Sailor.  Pull up and grab a Yuengling.  Glad you’re here.

Oh and by the way, The 19 should have one last HMM before you sail again to the boondocks of chicken shacks manned by Filipino pimps.

It’s a trap game tonight, for sure.
You know, this is like the fifth game in a row that someone’s brought this up.  It’s kind of starting to lose its meaning now…
Posted by Garth on 11/30/11 at 10:36 AM ET

That is the most essential element of being a trap game.  Now I’m concerned.

If Stevie Y is expecting anything less from us, he has reason to be disappointed.

Last night I drove to Charlottesville to watch the M basketball team lay down a real stinker, much due to UVA’s successful adaptation of the Wisconsin defensive style, naturally b/c the coach is the son of the Wisconsin coach who implemented it there.  Seriously, UVA “streaked” out to a 12 point lead in the second half, and it took about 9 minutes of game clock, including 2 time outs, and about a half an hour of real clock time.

So if TB employs a similar style tonight, only on ice, I may just turn over to the Porn channel.  That’s a lie, of course, I don’t have a porn channel, and only remember once last year turning off a Red Wings game without watching the third period.

I’m on campus doing classwork and I got the VS/NHL on NBC feed as well.  No one gives a fuch here because the chicks are on Facebook giving each other duckfaces while the guys are playing WoW.

Yeah, there’s your higher ed grants at work.

Why would anyone want that?

If Lidas scores tonight, an honorary assist should be awarded to Stevie.

I’ll be honest, I don’t know what’s up with you and bathrooms/food/beer. I’m so used to going to the stadium, standing for two hours and then going to eat something, I don’t get your thing.

I remember that feeling…the profs who didn’t see exams as tools for testing knowledge, but rather as endurance trials.

Exactly, those fuchers. Why the hell have a quiz with 40 multiple choice questions? Does this lottery really evaluates my knowledge?

The big gray Boat carrying the Master Chief motored out the bay today in fine style.  Blessings to all on board….come home safe.

Jimmy’s 16th start, Conks will be rested when….

I think the 1-3-1 will be used IF the Bolts have the lead.

Otherwise, they’re attacking on the forecheck.
