#2464717 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 1 Discussion (12/14)

Bert drinking the Corona...I can't stand the stuff, but whatever...


I liked the picture of Pasha sound asleep on the plane...I wonder what he was listening to that put him out?  Maybe I need to get a hold of it to be able to sleep at night.  It's been so long since I've had a good night's sleep I wouldn't know what one was if it came up and kicked me.

I'm glad Patrick and Luke are back.  Now if you could only get rid of Cleary.


As far as the guys in GR, you've got a nice bunch there, but I think some of them need a bit more seasoning. 

#2464024 Great Datsyuk Interview

Posted by Kira on 13 December 2013 - 11:29 AM

Me too.  I'd love to take him out on our boat next summer and let him fish to his heart's content.  I told him about it when we were at camp, and his eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas.  When I told him the boat was big enough to sleep on, his eyes got wide and he said, "Really?"  I think I peaked his interest.  :lol:

Looking at the angle they showed, Jersey might have a legitimate beef on the trapezoid call.  But on the other hand, the way our luck has been running lately, I daresay the only place he'll get any sympathy is from the dictionary.

#2459443 Ericsson names daughter "Liv" in honor of Stefan Liv

Now that my days are numbered as I head down the home stretch of Mortality Lane, I've come to realize exactly that: Life is neither a race nor an endurance event, but rather a relay event.


As the late, great Warren Zevon said, "enjoy every sandwich".

#2458488 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

 I almost forgot to tell you...there is no pair of ear plugs in the world that can drown out Karen Newman's caterwauling.  Be warned.  I'm honestly surprised the ASPCA hasn't got her for animal cruelty when she "sings".  As my housemate says, she must have incriminating photos of someone.


Okay, I performed my public service for today.

#2458424 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Thanks for the advice and well-wishes everyone. 


Keep the tips rolling. 


Anyone eat at Slow’s BBQ? Is it as good as they say? 



My experience there was great.  I had a sandwich they call the Triple Threat.  It was excellent.  A little on the expensive side (the sandwich was $8.50), but it was definitely worth the price.  Smoked applewood bacon, brisket and ham.  It was very good.  I would recommend eating before you go to the game, because food at the Joe is expensive, and there isn't much open after the game.  The Casino is nice, I suppose but I can't handle the smoking and the noise.  I try very hard to avoid it.


If you are driving on your own, I would definitely recommend a little sidetrip up north a wee bit to Hockeytown Authentics.  Good stuff!  Take I-75 North to E. Big Beaver Road (no jokes, please), and take that a mile or so.  It's on the north side of the road, next to the Troy Arena complex.


And whatever you do, have fun.

#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.

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.

#2455958 The Hottest Red Wing

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.
