Is there going to be an “Ian White” zone - a gigantic doghouse for everyone to sit in?

how about the Del Kaiser zone - where they hand you a contract, everyone praises you and lifts you onto their shoulders as their savior, then someone smashes you in the hand with a hammer and kicks you in the junk?

they should also do a raffle.  call it the “Brendan Smith giveaway”

wooohooo I’m on a roll this morning.  amazing what actually sleeping through the night will do for you grin

Well, it is the more popular racing than ALMS.  I was really excited to see the GT2 Corvettes racing on Belle Isle, but was sorely disappointed by the turnout.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
