Rate this topic

20 posts in this topic

At the local college hockey team Saint Cloud State game, and a fan walks up to me and asked who is Red Wings head coach. I look at my friend and was like Mike Babcock.. why? He's like I heard he's here tonight and I look at my friend and was like is this guy for real?

Well during the 2nd intermission I am just looking in the stands for him and sure enough, sitting in section 209.. Mike Babcock! I quick run up to his section and introduce myself, he asked if I went to college at SCSU and I said yes and I asked him when he thinks the lockout will end. He says he plans on it ending around Christmas time. I asked if I can have a picture with him and of course he says yes! :)

Well the job of a coach is to push the players, still remembering when Babs literally wanted to eat the freaking Avs coach alive after the Lidström hit. Wow did he look like a man on a mission.

He was there Saturday night as well and prospect Nick Jensen had a goal for State from top of the circles (assume Babcock was happy about that). He had a journal full of notes and a player Wings should highly look at is Andrej Sustr, big 6-8 200 pound defensemen from Nebraska-Omaha.

I used to work at Cabela's...he came in there ALL THE TIME. Pretty much saw him at least once a month. He was even in there the day after they lost game 7 to the Pens. I didn't talk to him that day.

Was he chewing gum? And did he just stare at people until they gave up their seats for him?

He was at a grocery store near my house yesterday ringing the bell for the salvation army or one of those charities. I did not get to stop by though :(

You should be ashamed... you should have told him you would donate money if he gave you his best scowl :sneaky2:

I went straight there after work, but he was replaced by a guy with a killer mustache.

Babcock and Ken Holland were pretty cool. I asked Babs if he were going to watch the World Juniors, he was like "O ya I watch it every year."

I saw Babs one night at Arbys after a hat trick.
