Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’ 

Way to go out on top, Joe…

Time to Say Goodbye, Joe Louis Arena

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 […]

Remembering Mr. Hockey

Bullied Home

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. […]

Too Many Teams to Follow

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 […]

Lacking Focus to Finish in Detroit

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. […]

Good Work, Red Wings & Pistons

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 […]

Red Wings Claim Winter Classic

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 […]

Michigan Claims Great Lakes Invitational

Michigan Claims Great Lakes Invitational

With a 4-2 comeback win (trailing 0-2) against Michigan Tech, the Wolverines win their second consecutive tournament.

Red Wings Shutout Capitals

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. […]

Red Wings Slay Babcocky Again

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 […]

FUCKIN’ RED WINGS

GET SOME!

Red Wings Dominate Babcock’s Return

Red Wings Dominate Babcock’s Return

Four nothing shutout at home against the Maple Leafs including Justin Abdelkader’s hat trick and Dylan Larkin’s first goal.

Salute, Grand Rapids Griffins

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 […]

Griffins Tie Up Conference Finals

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 […]
