Does anyone actually go there? I haven't been in an Arbys for about 10 years. Or any other fast-food restaurant, for that matter.
I also mute the commercial because of that guy's screechy voice. I thought he was squalling "it's good, good food" - which actually makes more sense than "good mood food," -- unless 1) it's not good, and/or 2) they put Prozac in the salad dressing.
They can do this. Each game has been decided only by one goal - although I will admit the play on the ice hasn't been that close, aside from first period of game 5 when the Wings took it to them. To paraphrase from an article I read this morning, the Wings "have better hockey" yet to play. So, do it.
Jimmy's the superior goalie, the Wings need to remember that. Take the play to Niemi's net, shoot the puck at him, and you'll win. Stay out of the box, if the officials will allow it -- and just take it one shift at a time.
Let's see a 6 up there on the page, at the end of the day!
Yoohoo! Pat!! Thank you for my DVD of the Wings/Preds game from April 2nd. You're a doll for doing that for me. I was so over the moon being there in person with Kristi, all I remember is screaming my head off and being so proud of Bert and the rest of the Wings for playing such an amazing game.
It's fun to watch it and hear Mick and Murph, and see the fights again. Thank you, thank you!! (((hugs)))
Well if that's the case, you guys better destroy them
I guess what pisses me off the most is that most of these players are getting millions of dollars to put on a show and they are hosing the fans who spend their hard earned money to see them. For crying out loud, play to win all the time. I wonder how they'd feel if the fans didn't care and there was a half-assed full arena since they are playing half-assed.
I stood by a dad and his 12 year old son at the glass during warm-ups last weekend in Nashville. It was pretty clear they were not wealthy, and they told me that it was the boy's first game in person, his birthday. He was star-struck and almost mute, staring at his heroes.
I thought of them last night, and remembered watching the Wings go down three goals in Nashville -- but then rallying and playing like champions, winning the game in OT. Not that it should have gotten that far, but they came back and played like they know how.
I am disappointed in them not playing with any intent to win in front of their last home crowd this season. The Wings admitted to the press that their heads were not in the game last night. That ought to make them feel shame.
Hope last night was just mailing it in since I know they can play better... but I agree with H-Mom. It's not right to not show up every game. If I turned in a performance like that at my job, I would be on the street.
Of course, I don't have a million dollar contract which says I don't have to perform to expectations, either. Sunday's game is on NBC. It's in the arena of the defending champs who made the Wings look like chumps in their last home game in front of their fans. No one wants the Wings to win, so I expect a loss there, if they don't show up with their heads on straight.
This team can take any contender in round one. If they want to...
