The Malik Report

One of the first things that disappears from one’s itinerary on vacation involves checking Twitter, so Sportsline’s Brian Stubits very thankfully brings to our attention a Red Wings-related “Tweet” of very significant note from DetroitRedWings.com’s Bill Roose:
The new #RedWings will wear the following jersey numbers this season: @commie22 (22); White (18); Conklin (29), Conner (41) and Exelby (3).
I’m guessing that things went off the rails for Commodore when the Commodore computer company’s new owner went ape over making money from Commodore’s cross-promotional possibilities. I hope that the Puck Daddy charitable pledge-o-thon will still go through—it was a great idea, but when things get corporate…
Commodore himself hasn’t stated anything via his Twitter account but I’m sure we’ll get a write-up sooner than later from the Puck Daddy crew.
Updated 3x at 3:35 PM: From Commodore himself...
I guess word is out that I will be wearing 22 this year. It was a really tough decision that I went back and forth on many times….. wearing 64 would have been neat and cool, but I just didn’t feel like this was the right year to do it. In my opinion getting an…opportunity to play in Detroit is a special thing, and I felt like I needed to wear a # that is special to me. 22 is that # for me…I really appreciate the interest and support the #64 generated, I wish @Commodore64 all the best with there computers, as a matter a fact I…am going to order one when I get to Detroit, and I will get in touch with @wyshynski about the $64 pledges, and I will match it and donate…money to charity. Which charity that is I don’t know yet, but I will figure it that out in sept when I get to Detroit.
my bad…I meant @CommodoreUSA…not commodore 64. I also meant “their computers” not “there computers”. #NotaStrongWriter Now I need to sign off. I have a hockey tourney in Vegas I need to pack for and dominate. Stay Single My Friends.
