Enjoy The Moment

If there's one thing to be said about the Wings this season, it's that they're fun to watch again. Not boring, not slow and old, and not the inevitable feeling of dread that we've all come to know in the last few seasons. These games are actually entertaining, and exciting. 

Larkin is back in the lineup tonight, T-Bert is on fire, and, the youngsters are really putting on a good showing so far.

Yes, there is plenty of room for improvement, and that will come in time, but for right now let's just enjoy the moment, and have a good time. I do realize it's only game three in a long season, but, bring it on!

That was enjoyable, especially compared to just wince-worthy discussion I’m used to with Detroit Tiger broadcasts.

At the risk of using language out of the late 2000s A2Y, Lidstrom is one guy I would give a courtesy reacharound to.

Yeah I don’t know these numbers either.  I think Greiss is the one with the full mask.

That’s why it’s called the “Hasek”.

Ha ha.  I don’t know if Chief Houlihan came up with all of these nicknames but he was one creative sumbitch.  Linking the mental state of The 19 to the frenetic play of Hasek was genius.

The Hasek is the 19’s sanctuary.

Just read a crazy thing. Supposedly Nixon unknowingly carried Louie Armstrong”s suitcase full of weed through customs when he was Vice President. Must be true. I read it on the internet. Bonjour.  grin
