Monday Matinee Game

It's an unusual Monday matinee game. Also, it's MLK Day, a Holiday, so hopefully a few of you will have the day off, and be able to join in.
After the win on Saturday the Wings seem to be feeling pretty good about themselves, but, should never get over confident. Anything can happen, and usually does. 
 

It's a Live Blog!

Afternoon, Bitches!
That doesn’t quite have the ring to it.

I have to get up to change the feed to FSD.  The Buffalo broadcast says that downtown is inundated under snow.

Maybe “Afternoon Be-yotches” works better.  grin

I think Craig Kilborn on late night TV was the first place I heard the convoluted “Be-yotch”.

I think I remember Buffalo starting out pretty hot this season.  They’re under .400 for the season now.

Really?  Kilborn seems like that was a recent change!!!  :(

I don’t know where Kilborn is these days, but someone posted a recent picture of Letterman and he looks like some old geezer remote prospector.

Disturbing stat:  in the previous 4 seasons buffalo was 11-2-2 vs Detroit.
And they’ve sucked badly.

Hahaha, I guess the first Kilborn decade, which apparently is longer ago than I appreciate.

The Red Wings are ripping along at one SOG every five minutes.

Hola 19. Just back after a thrilling ride ootside in our 8 inch snow from yesterday. Just doing a recon for which path I will drive to work tomorrow.
So another slow road start with only 4 SOG. Wake up. Even Cal is here with his jammies on. LGRW
