It’s Thanksgiving Eve

It's Thanksgiving Eve y'all, and, I'm sure we all have so much we are thankful for. Our families, our friends, all the things that matter. We've managed to stay alive over the course of the past two years, and, we're all still here having fun, watching games together. Win or lose.

We're thankful for Paul Kukla, for giving us a place to gather for fun, no holds barred.

We're thankful for our Chief, Bill Houlihan, for this wonderful place called A2Y, and we miss him so very much. And of course, I'm thankful for all 19 of the best, die hard, Wingaholics on the planet, and a stick tap for Hockeytown Todd, aka, "Gramps", wherever you are....

And now, just for fun, some kind of a prayer;

Dear 8-pound 6-oz Baby Jesus, 19 of us ask for a win tonight against the Bitter, Brittle, Blues.


It's a Live Blog!

Hopefully the little break here has rejuvenated the team. 20 games in 38 days was a definite ball buster. Thanks scheduling. Not.

Mickey’s assessment of why that goal was scored was what we love aboot him. He tells it like it is good or bad.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
