Well fans...I drove from Michigan to Alabama on Sunday and arrived in Tennessee early Sunday morning. My route takes me through Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, back to Tennessee and then back to Alabama. I know it's weird but you're crossing through some of these states for only a few miles.

Anyway on with my story....picture this in your mind. I have a small Red Wings logo on my windshield, I was wearing a Red Wings t-shirt. I drove the first leg of Tennessee and had stopped a couple of times in the rest area or a gas station. I left Tennessee heading for Alabama/Georgia then knowing I'm going back into Tennessee it dawned on me. I have my Red Wings flag in my trunk! I know you're all wondering why the hell my flag was in my trunk..well I have this superstition that if I don't put my flag in my window by the first playoff game it doesn't go on. Well I thought that this really should be the exception to the rule. So off I go to find an exit that doesn't have ANY gas stations, rest areas etc. As I don't want to incite a riot. I found the perfect exit called 'stinking creek road'....I swear this is the real name of the road! Anyway I put my flag on and get back on to the highway. Well I was flipped off twice...lol. I then pulled into the Tennessee welcome center! It was about 10am Sunday morning on a beautiful, warm, sunny day and the welcome center was packed! I pull up with my flag a flying and parked and got out of my car and state trooper happened to be there walking his police dog. He walked up to me and said "Boy you have guts!" and I said "Of course I do...I'm a Red Wings fan!" lol Anyway he said maybe I should escort you inside the welcome center and we laughed and I said "I don't think that would be necessary..besides you would protect me wouldn't you?" and he said "Hell NO!" lol Anyway, we got a good laugh out of it and I was escorted into the welcome center by a Tennessee state trooper. laugh.gif

I should also tell you, by the way, that I made this trip by myself. So I just wanted to tell you all that I took a hit for the team!
