Thirteen Games To Go

Including tonight's game, let's just say we're lucky that there are only thirteen games left to go in this season. Most nights I wonder why anyone shows up here. Then I remember that we're all a bunch of Wingaholics. We may as well have some fun at the expense of this hapless team. Thanks to all 19 of you for playing along. Cheers!

It's a Live Blog!

Hola fellow Wingaholics. We’ve stuck together this far so 13 more games should be a gimme. Very little to cheer aboot but there has been a few bright spots. Bernier has been a plus, also Zadina and Erne. Larkin puts too much weight on his shoulders and his play suffers for it. Mantha competes when he feels like it. Overall, minor improvement over last season. Consistent effort remains an elusive goal for this team. L.G.R.W.

Always loved the Hartford Whalers uniform.

Ken Daniels should just do ‘Story Time with Mick’ and just announce whenever a goal is scored.

Unfortunately that would be better than what we’re now watching. confused

I’m wondering if Mickey’s comment about Blashill having a hard time during a rebuild may be a harbinger?

Good to see Rasmussen playing a little physical. Someone should remind him that he’s 6’5 and 215 +?? lbs

Watching the ‘canes broadcast. Funny to hear the talk about not taking an opponent lightly and how Detroit beat the Stanley Cup champs recently then went into the 3 way player deal.

But the NHL package has to do a better job of returning from commercial on time.

Ahoy, Bitches!
finally caught up to live.  I was out on my deck reading in the peaceful evening and the 7 oclock snuck past me.

Lots of birds persistently calling in from the woods behind my house between trips to the seed feeder on my deck, Carolina Wrens, Cardinals etc.

We’ve started to get layers of fine yellow pollen now, usually gets heavier soon thereafter.

Thanks for setting us up again Kate.

Yeah he was inside the dot, probably not more than10-12 feet.  It either hits you or not from that close, no time to react.

We were posting aboot favorite commercials a few games ago. My new fav is the E*Trade commercials where an African-American gentleman is trying to get his dad to use the visual phone app. The two punchlines are, “Is that how you hold a mirror dad?” and “Go get mom.” Hope some of you have seen them.

When I was a kid, I had a sign on my bedroom wall that said, “Cheer up, things could be worse, so I cheered up and, sure enough, things got worse.” I’ve been a Wings fan since the late ‘50’s, but these last two seasons have been tough.  I have no intention of changing my colors, but I’m hoping that we’ll start seeing a light at the end of the tunnel next year.  By then, some of the kids should be ready for the show and I think we’ll have a new and better guy behind the bench…perhaps Gerard Gallant.

A guy on another blog watching the Tigers tonight (losing 8-0) said he’s been a Detroit fan his whole life and never have the four pro teams been so bad for four straight years.  Don’t know if it’s never happened before, but it is happening now.
