Sports Bio

Anyone that's read my posts knows I'm a diehard Detroit homer. The most memorable sporting event I've attended was game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. I had already been very lucky scoring playoff tickets that year, seeing game 1 of round one vs. St. Louis, the triple-OT game in Detroit vs. Anaheim, and watching the Wings paste Colorado 6-0 on home ice. But to see my life-long dream of my Detroit Red Wings finally put an end to the 42-year curse was better than any other moment in my sports life...and yes, I cried like a five-year-old girl with a skinned knee when Stevie Y. finally got to hoist the Cup...

For reference, here's Alex Avila getting hit on Friday by David Ortiz's follow through. See the difference in Papi's reaction?

The fact that he's moving out of the way of the pitch shows that it's deliberate, to me. It's blatant, and dangerous. He should get at least 20 games, in my eyes. Make an example now, before this becomes commonplace...

Of course you had fun in Michigan...you weren't in Pittsburgh...

And Babs isn't going anywhere. He's the best coach in the NHL, and the Wings brain trust knows that. The day their season ended, Illitch and Holland started working on his extension. I'd expect negotiations to start some time after the draft. I hear Tortorella's looking for work, tho...

I understand your concern, but this is a case of "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few". If he's a coach/GM, then he's no longer providing "analysis" on TV, so everyone else (other than Penguins fans) will be happier.

We don't have to listen to McGuire during games, *and* Pens fans will be miserable? I fail to see a downside to this hire...
