Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings: I Am…

Detroit Red Wings
  • I am heavily sleep deprived
  • I am sick of the taste of Red Bull
  • I am very grouchy
  • I am really starting to hate my Playoff Beard, which gets thicker, faster, every year I get older
  • I am happy to declare a new-found respect for the Phoenix Coyotes
  • I am agreeing with the nomination of Bryzgalov for Vezina
  • I am mistaken for a vagrant due to my beard and gaunt look today (I work in a hospital, where bums and the homeless are often wandering the corridors for shelter)
  • I am still, underneath it all, really very happy
  • I am struggling to show that right now
  • I am facing more of these late night, sugar/caffeine fueled sessions
  • I am indebted to the guys on the 3rd and 4th lines, who played out their skins
  • I am always in awe of Nik Lidstrom, but more so after tonight
  • I am drinking my coffee thick and black, for the first time ever
  • I am in trouble with work for punching the coffee machine because it wasn’t coming out fast enough
  • I am elated, but it’ll probably feel more like that tomorrow
  • I am sleeping as soon as I get in from work
  • I am through to the second round
  • I am progressing in the playoffs
  • I am the Detroit Red Wings

Editor’s Note: rockandrollnobody lives in the UK which means games are generally 8 hours ahead, so a 7PM PST puck drop is approx 3AM.

  1. Oh that is harsh. At first I thought you just lived on the east coast. I thought you would have been happy with a 6:00PM west coast start for Thursday. Do you watch the games live? Do you have to subscribe to a hockey package in the UK? I remember I was in London during the NFL playoffs years back and had to watch the game at 1:00AM, and it was still tape delayed.

    Good luck in the playoffs.

  2. Yeah, I’ve had to buy a special US sports package. I record most, but the important ones I watch live.

  3. I feel for you my friend and admire you cause there is no way I can stay up till 3 to watch my Canucks. Thank god for Sky + and ESPN America or the ESPN player. Of course the problem for me is when I record the games I often find out the score from Twitter etc before I watch the game.At least that way I don’t feel half dead like you. Lol

  4. I am…incredibly disappointed
    I am…elated we had such a good season
    I am…smart enough to know when we were outplayed

    Congrats!
