There is one variable the esteemed writer for the most important paper ever, the Chicago Tribune, forgot to present us with in his infamous hammer and nail parable. What if, and I'm just spitballing this, what if the hammer is in fact a BALL PEEN HAMMER? That DOES change things.

Irrelevant.  Chicago has neither balls nor peens.


Sorry.  Had to.

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Seems the theme on the Score radio today in Chicago is that even though Hawks lost one game don't get worked up (which makes sense, we all know that) however they keep harping on usually in a 7 game series the better team always wins and not to get worried.


Um, if that is almost always the case, then how come lower seeds beat higher seeds in 7 game playoff series? Idiots.


LA stormed through the playoffs last year as 8 seed, we beet anaheim as 7 seed this year in the first round, and we are up 2-1 in the series against the mighty hawks. 


Ottawa beat Montreal, Rangers beat the Caps


San Jose beat Vancouver, LA beat St. Louis (again)

This deserves a bump or something after tonights game going up 3-1. This is the most absurd sports writing fail and when I read it the first time I was mad, but now I just laugh and laugh and laugh.

To all my "fans" in #RedWings country: Enjoy your dinner. It's comin' back up later when the hammer gets back to being the hammer.

He doubled down on the hammer analogy? Oh boy.

I think their show is going to Detroit on Monday for game 6(if there is one).  I only listen to them on my way to work, but I thought that is what they said the other day.

I love seeing this statement right now.  For once it's in our favor.

I gotta give the guy credit for taking the beating on Twitter pretty well. But man, that article gets funnier with every game...

His next story will be "red wings dont deserve to be on the same golf course as the hawks"

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I wish I had bothered to find this guy's twitter since I mentioned the hammer/nail analogy earlier during the game.
Funny how as the series goes along the "nail" is looking more like a railway spike.

Okay, this proves he's even stupider than I thought. He's nothing. All talk. His article and response is that of a fool.

oh, please don't go this direction. they are legit talented team. but wings are just way better. that's it.

they both, wings and hawks, are playing at the same rink and that's what makes this series and the game of hockey amazing!

Still one more game to win. In the immortal words of Han Solo: Great, kid! Don't get cocky.

Don't get cocky, indeed. The fourth win is the most difficult to get.


Most of the time I'd say that if you don't get the ring, you've failed. Not this year. Wings have already surpassed my wildest dream for this season.


From here on out I'm gonna just sit back and enjoy the ride.
