An Honest Effort

There's not much to say. The team has managed to put together a couple of wins, which is good. The problem is, which Wings team will be showing up tonight? 

The Wings haven't played well against the Broons so far this season. It's been downright embarrassing actually. As a Wings fan, and, in unison with the rest of the 19, all we are asking is for the Wings to show up tonight, make an honest effort, and, don't just mail it in.

Hola Katie. Honest effort for 60 minutes. Win or lose is secondary. L.G.R.W.

Good evening, Kate and the 19!

Bruins LWer DeBrusk has apparently asked for a trade, so tonight ought to be interesting.

Hola 19. We will need a much better effort than what we showed against the poor sabres. Yeesch. Have to listen to that bloviator Jack Edwards. Here’s hoping we can shut him up. LGRW

Indeed. For the past 30 years, whenever I enter a building or business I make sure I know where all exits are. Not just the public exits. It’s a sickening feeling to have to always have a back up plan. It was the Luby’s shooting in 91 that changed my way of thinking. Not asking for controversy here. Just my opinion……

The Wings are still too soft. They need to be way, way, way, more aggressive and hard on the puck and forecheck.

On a lighter note: A college professor assigned his class to write a short story of any length but it had to include something about royalty, mystery and sex.

One student received an ‘A’ for writing: “I’m pregnant” said the Queen. “I wonder who the father is?”
