What worked for me - although it took them two operations to figure it out - is fusion of the 3rd and 4th vertebrae, with screws and stuff put in. They tried a laminectomy first and that just made it worse. The nerves are now free to do their thing and I have had no back pain whatsoever since January. I'd like to think they've looked at all possibilities, but OF COURSE I could have given this information if they'd just called. But neeeuuuoooooo...!
Will this shut the Cleary cretins up? Will this get them off his back?
Nawww....Hell, he shoulda been scoring goals even with a broken back.
And don't tell me that was only for the last two games. Did any of you see him let up? To all of you Cleary haters out there, move on and get.a.life. Pick on someone your own size because you'd never ever fit in his skates.
I am very sad and feeling deflated and it'll last for awhile. But I feel horrible and empty for those guys on the ice who played their hearts and their asses off, especially in the 3rd period. And fought tooth and nail, through injuries, to get to THE SEVENTH GAME WITH THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD. They played like I knew they could in the third period; like they knew they could. They were there for each other, like a team, just like the good ol' days and it was beautiful to behold.
But those of us who are still nit-picking, still pointing fingers, still raging, like somehow THEY let you down....What the hell is that about? Get f****** real. It is not about you or me. It's about our team.
Anyway, I'm outta here. I'll be back later when I calm down too. Have a great summer and please - all of you take care of yourselves.
Somehow, the Wings have strived AND succeeded without Lidstrom, without Holmstrom, without Bertuzzi, without Helm, and without DeKeyser. Somewhere along the line in this shortened bastardized season this ragtag, crippled, makeshift, old and slow, rookie-peppered bunch of hockey players became a TEAM. A team that has taken the number one hockey squad in the world to a seventh game. Still nobody much is talking about them with any sense of what it took for them to get where they are.
It simply doesn't matter. Anybody with a penchant for sports history will be talking about this team in years to come, and they will get their due. They are a miracle of their own making. I am so very proud to be here in this moment. To savor their valor, and experience the thrills and chills at their very Trying.
I love you Detroit Red Wings. Thank you so much for who you are, and what you have become. And I am so very proud and honored to be one of your fans.
Don't blame the refs, Detroit played like utter garbage. Couldn't even cross the damn red line without turning it over.
Win or lose Wednesday, I'm still extremely excited for next years team!!
I don't agree with this. I think ref's calls and non-calls can get in a team's head and throw off their rhythm and screw up their game. And yeah, I know they're supposed to be pros AND THEY ARE. But some of those calls/non-calls were horrific. They get to a point where they don't know what's gonna happen next on the ice. And they had moments when they played very well.
That's very good to hear. I may not even watch Wednesday's game. I think the refs will be a major part of that outcome and I do not trust them as far as I could kick them. I emailed the NHL ref's association and told them as much. Sickening.
