So much action happens in the game what with players racing from one end of the ice rink to the other, stopping on a dime, changing directions, fights, and goals all of this on a thin piece of sharp metal.

Connected to the Past

The two wires pictured here are not from an old personal computer or a vintage 80s VCR no, it is of something more powerful and enduring, nostalgic:  a 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 Police Interceptor, black and chrome.  While in the process of a minor repair to the powerful 390 engine the distinctly different wires, one…… Continue reading Connected to the Past

WOW, WOW, WOW! Saturday is my day to do chores, vacuuming, laundry, taking the dog for that LLLLOOOONNNNGGGG walk so as to make this more enjoyable I tuned in NBC TV and the Boston Bruins Montreal Canadian playoff game. Historically, these two teams don't like one another particularly when fighting for the right to call… Continue reading Back checks, body crashes, slapshots, and goals

Deja vu!  Flash back to 2003 Minnesota trailing in the playoff series against Patrick Roy and the Avalanche 3 games to 1 storm back and knock out Colorado and Mr. Roy.  Patrick retires from the game.  Fast forward to 2014 with Roy now behind the bench and facing Minnesota again and what ya know the Wild did it… Continue reading Wow Roy! Wow Kings!

Early summer vacation for the Redwings as we all look forward to a 24th consecutive appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  ???  The team played hard but, to me, something was missing.  Wait a minute,  an epiphany I just had!    The Michigan Wolverines of college football fame (with a similar circumstance) visited Pasadena, California (my favorite city… Continue reading A Short Second Season, Detroit goes Home

The downside of internet radio is that once the game is over the broadcast is cutoff so the adrenaline built up is suddenly left hanging.  talk about kicking the stool out out under your feet.  It is ok we won and now just three more to go!!!

This radio thing is GREAT I commend whoever created it .   Yesterday I was listening to the Colorado Redwings, oops there I go again, the Colorado Avalanche playoff game against the Minnesota Wild with the announcers, I forget the names, adding color. Doing some bookkeeping and other stuff online I listen to Patrick Roy's first… Continue reading So it begins the race for The Cup, eh?

Finally, the second season of professional hockey is set to begin and I am as giddy as a school boy; the anxiety, the anticipation mounts then finally the brackets become clear! Channels that cover the games are checked and rechecked, the rewriting of personal schedules, nothing matters in the world but the next two months,… Continue reading The Second Season, eh?

This year the excitement that is The Stanley Cup Finals is felt by yours truly more so than ever before and, that includes when Detroit won, the reason not seeing it on television instead getting updates online and listening to online radio.  I've always been a romantic. I signed up for NHL Center Ice after… Continue reading Game 3 Boston, After all this is for all the money, The Cup, Eh?

Bang on! It is the Cup!

I am pumped, I can feel it, the Redwings are turning into something they have not experienced that of being the Cinderella Team.  Apparently the Arrow of Curse I shot into the air  has gotten caught in all the wind blowing through Chicago this is ok I have plenty!   On a side note it looks…… Continue reading Bang on! It is the Cup!
