How will you all feel if he plays in Sochi injured and comes back with a medal and a more serious injury that knocks him out of the rest of the season?

 

I remember Stevie Y doing this in 2002 and I ask all of you, is it worth missing a chance at the playoffs?

Cold miserable night.  Check.  Sold tickets to friend of a friend who calls and says they can't make it. Check.  Going to a game that starts in five minutes with an extra ticket. Check.

 

I guess there are worse problems to have.

The best part of the night was walking out of the arena as they played "the night Chicago died" on the sound system.

 

Hee.

 

Loved the fourth line tonight.  I'm ready for a youth movement.

I was at the book signing tonight and I'm very glad that my friend went to get our wrist bands and purchase the books at lunch time.

They sold out of the book, ran out of the stock from the warehouse and the place was crazy with wing fans.  Dmac was very funny, talked to

every person in line (we were the 93rd people to get signed) and is probably still signing books in the parking lot.  He took pictures with everyone

and generally was a very nice guy.

 

He told the guy in front of me that he thinks the alumni game will be fun but he's not put on skates in over a year.  He also said that while Drapes has a workout plan for the game, that he and Maltby would probably down some beers and go.  I didn't ask him to sign my book "thanks for last night" but I was tempted.  I asked him if my friend and I could "oreo" him for a picture and he laughed and said that was discussed in chapter 14.  He grabbed the mic at one point and called the next group of numbers and told everyone that their order was ready for pick up.

 

I have some pics if anyone is interested.  He looked really good. Felt even better, lol.  He's a nice solid hunk of guy.  Ahem from a female's perspective, lol.

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

 

Yes.  It's very good.  Not quite as good as Memphis, but very very good and well worth a stop.  Go early and before you get hungry because there is always a line.  Someone else mentioned Astoria, which I love as well.

 

I would like to say that if you are a cultured kind of group, the Diego Rivera murals at the Detroit Institute of Art are worth the price of entry.  But I like art, so your mileage may very.

 

I just moved to Detroit a few months ago but my friend and I move around most parts of town without feeling threatened.  We're also females.  As someone said,  use a GPS and when the lights go away, turn around.   This is really NOT the city to get lost in.

 

Make sure you take a lot of quarters if you plan on using the people mover.  It's 75 cents a ride and not all of the change machines work. 

 

I love Cheli's chili.  And there's a pretty nice beer selection as well.  They have a shuttle to the Joe as well. 

 

Walk down Woodward a bit just for fun.  There are actually people in Detroit.  I was shocked the first time I  walked around. 

 

If you like bread bakery stuff, go to Avalon.  It's good stuff.

 

Have a great trip!
