Abel to Yzerman

An Early Game

It's a beautiful spring day, and, there is an early game featuring an uninspiring team playing today. Whoever wants to watch, welcome to matinee time.
Whoever has better things to do, well, if I'm being honest, we all probably have better things to do.....

It's a Live Blog!

Thanks as always Lady Kate. Got the yard work done for the day and ready for possibly some offense. Or watch something offensive.

Heya, 19.  I have some time for some Wings hockey today.  I see Alice Cooper doing his “Go Wings Go!” video on BSD.  Wonder what the Yotes fans must be thinking about that.

Trying to get used to that:  “BSD.”

I wonder if that changes the odds at the bookies.

Howdy 19. There are better things to do. However once a Wingaholic, always a Wingaholic. L.G.R.W.

Heya, Kate.  Well, if he does score even one goal today, I expect his minutes to be in low 11s the rest of the night because, you know, Blash.

I was hooked on the Wingaholicism when after the USA Hockey team beat the Russians 4-3 in 1980, Eddie Mio was in net, Brad Park was the Wings star defenseman, and Johnny Ogrodnick was my favorite player until Stevie Y arrived.

Yep SYF. Look what happened to Smitty after he had a Gordie Howe hat trick?  shut eye

Johnny Ogrodnick

Yeah. Scored 55 goals in 84-85. One of my favorites too.

Of course, the Khan tweet is messed up again.  It’s Greiss in net.

Guess it’s Greiss after all…..

I like the forecheck early, but that’s three forwards waaay too deep beneath the dots.

Didn’t notice this, but Staal’s stick might actually taller than him.

Kind of a pretty good kill by the Wings PK.

Toe save by Greiss was awesome because Hronek got caught flats.

Afternoon, Bitches!
Thanks for the lead in, Kate. 
I was watching a few innings of the other Ilitch team, which is every bit as punchless as the Wings are.  One wonders if the “young” owner, I think he’s 50, will demand results soon for both teams, b/c both are so substandard by professional expectations, and neither showing any improvement over three years, that instead maybe he is asleep.

Ah yes, the perpetual 5-v-5 PK setup by the Wings.  It’s so famous.

2 SOGs for the Wings in just over 12 minutes of play in the first.

In the three previous games, the Detroit Tigers struck out an incredible 60% of their At Bats.  I didn’t make that up.

The ineptness with these teams is indescribable.

Can’t find the words.

You can throw the lions and pistons in that group. Our sports teams blow chunks that’s for sure.

Heya. I am impressed by the new Lions staff. They seem to know what they are doing. I may regret saying that later but anyway. There is hope in Detroit with the Wings and the Lions.

At least they’re still tied with TB.
The Tigers have been outscrewed by the Yankess 16-1 through a game and a half.

I don’t follow the Pistons and the Tigers only a little so I don’t know how things are going for them.
