If you're in the Michigan area the games are usually broadcast on CBC, the Canadian channel. Hockey night in Canada is one of the true glories that come with Michigan residence.

That may have been the biggest goal of the season thusfar. Hawks had all of the momentum for a while there.

"There's a new level of hatred in this series" - hockey night in canada.
Solid, physical first period for the Wings.

440 foot blast from the best player in baseball. Sometimes I think I take for granted how special it is to be able to watch Cabrera on a daily basis.

Light the lamp!
Scoring aside, I think the key stat thusfar is that we're outshooting the Hawks. It would be a very quick series if we were anything close to the shot-line from Game 1.

Drugs was my first inclination as well, not mental illness, although that could be a piece of the equation. Usually a guy who presumably has money doesn't go breaking into houses just for the fun of it.

Some mother's day schadenfreude: Completing the hat-trick, news reports are beginning to trickle in of Titus Young's third arrest this week. This time around Young is accused of burglary and resisting arrest.
I think it is safe to say, however, that this has quickly moved out of the realm of schadenfreude and into the category of just sad.

Gonna be a diet mountain dew kind of night with the looming Game 7 for the Red Wings late on the west coast.
Nothing like a game 7 in hockey in sports.

Random Saturday night tidbit:
Shane Morris will wear number 7 at Michigan. Following in the footsteps of Rick Leach, Drew Henson, and Chad Henne, among others.

Completely agree with you. If a Ducks player did this to a Wings player everyone in hockeytown would be irate. I actually love Abby as a player despite his Sparty roots, and I am certainly a Wings homer, but I do believe Abdelkader left his feet - which is a big no-no these days.
As for Abdelkader being a border-line AHL player, I'll respectfully disagree. He can be a big impact player for us when he is on his game. Bottom line is losing Abdelkader and DeKeyser could spell our doom. The wings simply were not that good to begin with, which should be clear to anyone who has followed them this season. Losing two guys certainly won't help our chances.

It seems people, particularly the younger generation, are becoming less well-versed in actual human interaction as online and phone interaction have taken over.

I would presume and hope that the type of person that reads this blog would not need this advice.
Yet it never ceases to amaze me how people fail to turn their phones off during important things. I've seen students' phones go off during exams and in the middle of representing someone in court.

I tend to root for the Canadian teams as well, but another Vancouver loss in the finals would be just as entertaining as a Canadian team winning.

You're a bolder man than I, sir. He's only owned in 63% of yahoo leagues, I wonder what the reason is for that big of a discrepancy.

Big Miggy with a bomb.
This could be a huge sweep of a very good Braves team. Good to see after hitting a bit of a rough patch last week.
And - gasp - it might even be time to consider Valverde for the old fantasy roster.

Craig Roh signs a free-agent deal with the Carolina Panthers, per his twitter.
Best of luck to all the Michigan Men drafted and signed today.

I'll treat this as the de facto Red Wings open thread:
Predators up 1-0 on CBJ.
Detroit up 1-0 on Dallas.
Early on, but things are looking promising for the Octopi.

My only problem with the "drunk sorority girl" stereotype is the stereotyping of Greek life in general. I know this board is generally anti-Greek life, but that stereotype is just not accurate - as all stereotypes are not a good portrayal of groups.
There are plenty of undergrads not associated with Greek life who overdrink and don't make it to the games or only show up at half-time; the problem is not limited to drunk sorority girls or drunk fraternity guys. And there are sections of Greek life who comprise the most vocal portion of the student section. A lot of times they are the ones in the front row cheering loudest and celebrating with the players after the game.

It's going to be very difficult for anyone to ever supplant Zack Novak as my favorite Michigan player ever. He is the most underappreciated player in a long time. Part of my love affair with him is that we were students at the same time, but he was a leader in a turbulent time for Michigan basketball, and will forever be the face of the new era of Michigan basketball.

Tight game, looking like we'll get another chance to see what our bullpen is made of. That closer situation makes me nervous in every game like this.

Torii Hunter has been a difference-maker for this team. I expected him to provide a spark, but he leads the AL in hits?! Didn't expect that this early.

Apparently Spike was mentioned on Pardon the Interruption today for tweeting at Kate Upton. The topic was "What are the chances Spike can get a date with Kate Upton?"
After the tourney run, Spike is the early candidate for my favorite Michigan player since Zack Novak.
