Curtis Sanford Back, Red Wings Forfeit Game

12/04/2008 at 5:38pm EST

From the Vancouver Sun, via the Financial Post:

Curtis Sanford will be Vancouver’s starting goaltender today when the Canucks meet the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena (4:30 p.m. faceoff, Vancouver time).

Sanford, who had to pull himself after one period in Monday night’s game in Columbus because of back spasms, pronounced himself ready to play after this morning’s game-day skate.

Great news, since last time Sanford took on the Wings was fun for the whole family.

A comment from Wings fan Animal Drew on another post of mine yesterday points out one of the bonuses to games like that last one: “Your boy Sanford shut me up last time.”

Indeed he did. And shutting up Wings fans is hard to do, so take it from me: Sanford deserves our unwavering appreciation. (It’s the little things that make life worthwhile!) :)

Although on that note, it was pointed out to me just yesterday that the first image that shows up on Google when you search my name is of me wearing a freakin’ Red Wings jersey—the result of a lost bet a couple years ago.

So karma gets it’s sick payback from me, too.

7:15pm PT—Post-Game Thoughts:

”&*#@*$!*#^! “

(That should about cover it.)
