I didn’t catch Game #3, so imagine my disappointment when I clicked over to NHL.com, hoping to read how Detroit crushed Pittsburgh, chewed them up, and spit them out…and instead read that Pittsburgh won 3-2! Please tell me this is only Detroit tossing Pittsburgh a bone so that the next ass-kicking is that much sweeter.
I don’t even like the Red Wings, but I was still counting on them to beat a couple of frat boys on skates from Pittsburgh. I’ll let this slide as long as Detroit finishes them off in the next 2 games.
A totally random aside…I had the misfortune of passing several days in Detroit a few years ago, and in between juggling mace and tazers if I even entertained the notion of leaving the locked and dead-bolted confines of my hotel, I discovered The Henry Ford Museum. I didn’t make it through the entire museum, but I loved the parts I wandered through. And no, it’s not just cars. If you’re stumbling around Detroit, stop in and take a look around. Tell them the Smirking Cat sent you…it won’t mean anything to them and they will likely give you crooked glances, but hey, you can still say it.
