My brother & I thought for a while about how to handle the national anthem when we returned to Van Andel Arena to see our banner raised from winning the 2017 Calder Cup Championship. Should we sit? Is there room to knee? We elected to stand during “O Canada,” and sit for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” […]

We are Calder Cup Champions!! #GoGRG pic.twitter.com/x0zYVEcCXh — GrandRapids Griffins (@griffinshockey) June 14, 2017
After successfully fulfilling our Ralph destiny and watching the Grand Rapids Griffins hoist the Calder Cup into our arena’s sky for all to see – I couldn’t feel better. I had had enough. Trump. New England. Golden State. How many more slack-jawed faggots would we all have to watch wear the crown? GR trailed 1-0. […]
Way to go out on top, Joe…
Every Red Wings fan had better be tuned in at five o’clock sharp today for the final hockey game ever at Joe Louis Arena, where we have watched the boys hoist four Stanley Cups. It’s the end of many eras: our beloved playoff streak will end at 25 straight seasons today (while Mike Babcock leads […]
I thought my Broncos won Super Bowl 50 and the NFL season was over. Nope. Watching some amazing Gs wearing the winged-wheel get pushed around by constant clutching, grabbing, cheap-shotting, illegal hitting, and general dirtiness AGAIN was fucked. They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. […]
So, it’s not the Palestine-Israel conflict, but seeing my Tigers on opening day created a log-jam at centerfield with the Pistons on TNT at the same time. (NO, that analogy DOES NOT need to make sense!) For real though, oldschool & I were on another Justin Verlander ride and our poor pushing for the playoffs […]
The Tigers: maybe the best team in Detroit history has YET to win a ring. Meanwhile, division mate Kansas City hoists the World Series trophy and back-to-back AL Pennants. The Lions: bye, Megatron. Detroit continues to be pessimistic about their football team, despite having the best QB in the NFL and an array of talent. […]
While I was at my mom’s I couldn’t witness the Pistons ball out against the Raptors. Boy, did they hound them and attack the rim en route to another victory. It’s all about plugging away at this point. One win at a time will separate you entirely from the field in the end. NO ONE […]
Albeit, the cotton-winter classic, what with the fake cotton snow blowing all over the ice in Denver! Nonethless, the resilient Red Wings beat their old rivals 5-3 in Colorado. Detroit played the Avalanche in an old-timers game last night, featuring all our hall of famers against their hall of shamers. We are so classy, we […]
With a 4-2 comeback win (trailing 0-2) against Michigan Tech, the Wolverines win their second consecutive tournament.
Sergei Federov was in the house after being inducted into the Hall of Fame last night. Thank god oldschool only now uncovered a clever nickname, “Sir Gay.” Cosmically, Alex Ovechekin and the Capitals were in town, and the Russians were tied for the most all-time goals from their country. However, Petr Mrazek had other plans. […]
If you didn’t see Petr “Griffin” in goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs, ya missed out. Our boy killed it, shutting them out in sensational fashion for 59 minutes until they pulled their goalie in a 1-0 game. Luckily, we went on to win in overtime. Several point-blank breakaways were absorbed by #34’s winged wheel […]
Four nothing shutout at home against the Maple Leafs including Justin Abdelkader’s hat trick and Dylan Larkin’s first goal.
You made it the farthest of all our teams – congratulations on making the Conference Finals, Gs. The Griffins nearly won game five, a pivotal 2-2 tiebreaker in Grand Rapids. We threw everything but the kitchen sink back at Utica in a 3-2 loss where we allowed all 3 goals in the first period. We […]
An electric atmosphere in Grand Rapids, Michigan was a fitting environment for an overtime thriller. The Griffins came through facing a potential three games to one hole if Utica scored first in OT. Andreas Athanasion put away the final goal for the home crowd five minutes into the extra period. It was 1-0 us early […]
Grand Rapids did their job, taking the split in Utica before they head back home. In his Griffins debut, Michigan freshman Dylan Larkin scored our first two goals. Amazing. Teaming up with Teemu is going to be one hell of a ride. The first score came on a Pulkkinen rebound that Larkin deposited into the […]
Burn in hell.
THAT MAKES ONE OF US – WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
