Push Back!

For what it's worth, most Wings fans are trying to figure out what's going on. Flashes of brilliance, followed by total darkness. There is plenty of blame to go around, but lately, one or two mistakes seems to lead to a total collapse.
Up until a few games ago this team was always in it until the final buzzer had sounded. Being down by a goal, or even two goals, the team would claw their way back and make a game of it. Win or lose.

Now it seems, whenever an opponent plays hard on the puck and aggressively forechecks, the Wings just wilt, shrink, disappear. With the exception of just a few players, the Wings are soft, and easy to push around. 

This is unacceptable and needs to change.The only thing fans are asking for is some real push back, an honest effort, and of course, entertaining hockey.

That reminds me of an old joke about a Chinese airplane crash and the surviving crew was Sum Ting Wong, Whey Tu Lo and Bang Ding Ow. (no offense intended)

Even if it is Arizona, not comfortable with just one goal lead.  Or maybe three goal lead.

I find it unbelievable that a tv station went on the air pronouncing these names and did not know it was an online joke.  Apparently they asked the NTSB and they said Yup that’s the crew.  The TV station did soon come back with an apology that these were not their real names.

That’s why it was so hilarious. Talking heads just say what they’re given.

It was hilarious, the tv crew so serious in their rush to be the first with the breaking story.  “We too low”  and “Some ting wong” wasn’t a tip off lolol.

My lucky half just informed me that he recalled the correct name is Goatsexbear. Having lived outside of Philly and working with Flyers fans, I think he’s probably right. And that really sounds more A2Yish….
