It’s All Good

First up. The Wings face off against the Jets tonight, and are hoping to take advantage of home ice where the majority of their wins have taken place this season. Larkin skated this morning and was said to be a game time decision. So, here's hoping he slots in.

Next up. High fives all the way around for Paul Kukla reaching his goal, and, to all of the wonderful folks that have helped to make it happen. Honorable mention to the 19, as they are always able to be counted on when the going gets tough. We all enjoy the benefits of having KK and A2Y, and, truly appreciate all Paul does each and every day. It's all good...

It's a Live Blog!

Thanks Kate and everyone who donated and sent emails of encouragement.

I had confidence the goal would be met but was a little shaky when we did get hacked.

I will be keeping everyone up to date o the status of KK 2.0 in the coming days, but less than 30 days is my guesstimate.

I was about to comment on the KK SUCCESS! story, but there are 19 comments right now, so I couldn’t mess with perfection.

But congrats, Paul! Knew you could do it. Looking forward to KK Part Deux!

Howdy RW. Are you and Kate ready for the snowmagedden this weekend? My better half went shopping today and said the shelves were pretty sparse.

I did go shopping Tuesday although I’m usually pretty well stocked for food.  My daughter watches a “wxrisk” weather forecaster and advised me that he alerted people early that the GFS model that everyone uses was probably wrong and he thought there’d be a big event.  I hope we don’t get ice.  The snow I can handle but it really does close things up here, especially schools.

Greenville is up in the highlands upstate isn’t it?  Maybe you’ll get blasted.

My older sister proudly embraces and encourages it.  My daughters try to distance themselves from it, but unsuccessfully.

Copp with a terrific shot high over the shoulder, no real chance to save at that close distance.

Wings getting Copped x 2. Both perfect shots. Defense is playing up too much. Gotta tighten it up boys.

Copp had a great career at Michigan, and I see several Wolverines are on the USA Olympic roster, and former goalie Strauss Mann.
