#2458251 What I'm thankful for...

Posted by Kira on 26 November 2013 - 09:55 AM

Three things..

 

1) That I have a husband who lets me indulge in my love for the boys and lets me go to Traverse City every year for camp.  Were it not for him, I would not have met some of you, or met a lot of the guys.  One in particular...

 

2) That if Patrick Eaves can't play here, at least I get to see him play in GR, where he is fitting in quite well, and even scored the game winning goal the other night.  And after the game, we get to hang out at the same eatery they do and I get to talk to him.  He's really nice!

 

3) More than anything else,  I'm thankful for one person.  Pasha.

#2457610 Datsyuk concussion: To Return Tuesday

Posted by Kira on 24 November 2013 - 11:52 AM

WTF is wrong with this team??? Their top player and arguably the best in the world gets elbowed in the head and not one sorry ass player does anything about it. I don't care if there is a suspension or not what i want to see is the team stand up for themselves and one another at the point when the incident happens, there is something fundamentally wrong with this team and their principles. Illitch should just relocate them to Sweden and let them play over there and Holland will be the happiest man alive. Im sorry to derail the thread but it infuriates me to watch this team and their complete lack of heart and toughness.      

 Just remember, the one person who would have stood up for him got demoted to GR because they absolutely had to have Cleary here.  And now look at what it has cost us.  Just get well quick, sweetie...that's all we can ask.

Those are nice.  He was so sweet last night.  I would have bought him a beer, but I was broke.  But it was a fun game, and he even got an assist on one of the goals.  Good time was  had by all.

Sometimes it goes that way.

 

I saw Patrick Eaves last night in GR, playing with the Griffins.  After the game (which was a 5-0 shutout for Petr Mrazek, by the by), we walked over to Peppino's, which is where the guys come hang out and eat after the game.  And he was there.  So my friend Kathy and I walked over and talked to him.  Kathy welcomed him to GR, and I told him I was sorry he wasn't in Detroit, but I was so glad he's there.  He was very sweet.  Then I told him I think we have some kind of cosmic connection.  He looked a little puzzled, and then I said, "We share the same birthday.  You're Patrick, I'm Patricia.  And your middle name is Campbell, and that was my maiden name."

 

"You're kidding."  "Nope."  "Weird!"

 

I also got to talk to Petr and Mitch Callahan.  And it turns out Jordin Tootoo doesn't like Italian food, so you won't be seeing him in that restaurant.

 

Anyway, that's all the news I have.




#2453696 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by Kira on 14 November 2013 - 03:51 PM

I'm totally bummed.  I love the guy's courage and his willingness to work.  I hope he clears and can go to GR.  That would mean I'd get to see him next week. 

 

So why the hell can't we kick Cleary's sorry ass to the curb?  He should have NEVER changed his mind, and gone to Philly instead.  He wouldn't be missed, believe me.




#2452243 Datsyuk and Zetterberg Moving Up Statistically

Posted by Kira on 09 November 2013 - 09:21 AM

You know, this is the kind of thing that we appreciate about him being here...to watch him quietly rise up the charts of all-time scorers.  He's in the top 10 on the Wings as well, not far behind the greats - Howe, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Yzerman, etc.   He goes about it in his own quiet way, and we can only thank the powers that be that we have had the chance to watch it over the years.  Wherever he winds up on the charts, it won't matter...numbers don't capture the joy of watching him.




#2451221 Who is the Most Underappreciated Red Wing?

Posted by Kira on 05 November 2013 - 09:09 AM

If I had to choose between the three, I'd say Drew Miller. Between he and Patrick Eaves (up until this last stretch of time), they have been steady on the penalty kill.


#2448454 The most annoying things about being at games?

Posted by Kira on 28 October 2013 - 09:28 AM

King Crane, thank you for backing me up on the veterans thing.  If they want to do something nice for them, why not play the song that is associated with that branch of the military.  Each branch has their own song.  I'd much rather hear "Anchors Aweigh" or the Marine Corps song than I would some stupid, sappy, phony piece of crap.




#2448304 The most annoying things about being at games?

1) When we are at a game, my husband is in a wheelchair.  He doesn't need it all the time, but in crowds, if someone jostled him the wrong way he'd be down on the floor with no feeling in his legs (degenerative form of arthritis in the back).  No one has courtesy for wheelchair fans.  They walk in front of you, they run into you, they don't care.  I'd love to be able to bring his service dog with us, but no way in the world would I do that.  Poor Loki would be trampled to death.

 

2)  I swear to God, if I have to hear that damned "God Bless the USA" song again, I'm going to barf.  It's nice to honor active duty people, but do we have to hear that crap song...it's as phony as a three dollar bill.  I hate it with a passion.

 

3)  Karen Newman.  I'm surprised the Humane Society hasn't busted her for cruelty to animals when she sings (or rather, butchers) the anthem.  At least at home, I can hit the mute button.

 

I know #2 is gonna get me in a lot of dutch with some people here, but I can't help it.  That song is so nauseating it should be banned from the airwaves.




#2447082 Datsyuk in shootouts

Posted by Kira on 22 October 2013 - 01:03 PM

I guess his theory is, if it ain't broke don't screw with it.  Unfortunately, goalies are starting to catch on.  So maybe it's time to pull a new trick out of the bag.  He's got enough of them to do that, it's just finding the one that hits the spot.

So long, sucker.  Don't let the door kick you in the ass on the way out.




#2444600 Luke Glendening?

Posted by Kira on 15 October 2013 - 10:12 AM

He's a good hardworking kid, the type of player that Mike Babcock craves.  He's also a very nice fellow.  I met him at camp, and he was saying, "I'm not famous yet."  "Don't worry,  We can say we knew you when."

 

And he likes my doggie, so he's thumbs up in my book, and paws up in Loki's.  :D




#2442978 Fedorov lacing up the skates Friday

Posted by Kira on 10 October 2013 - 12:44 PM

I was wondering about that.  Can he trade himself to another team?  And will he bench himself if he's playing lousy?




#2438030 Lidstrom will play in Winter Classic Alumni Game

Posted by Kira on 20 September 2013 - 09:10 PM

I'd love to see Igor Larionov, Slava Kozlov and Slava Fetisov play one last game together.  I mean, gee, while we're under the wishing tree...




#2437915 Lidstrom will play in Winter Classic Alumni Game

Posted by Kira on 20 September 2013 - 09:31 AM

They're moving training camp to Mt. Pleasant???   They canned the head of security at Centre Ice???  They're going to treat wheelchair bound people better???

 

Well, like someone else said, we can dream...
