I’m Back!

To the sincere and wonderfully amazing readership of this blog…my apologies for a complete disappearance over the course of the last 3 weeks.

I won’t bother you with excuses about “finals” and me still being a “student” etc. etc.  Not worth it.

Suffice it to say I’m back for now and will hopefully never let you down like this again. (Although my thanks to the many of you that apparently still felt compelled to be checking the blog even in my absence…)

Instead of recapping the last few weeks and giving my own input on everything, I think I’m just going to jump into the present and move on from where we are.  I’ve been keeping up with the Red Wings though all of this and have been a dedicated reader at many of the great blogs to the right on my “blogroll”.  Frankly, there is too much to talk about and I’m moving forward with this small recap:

1. The Wings are injured…at one point 9 main players injured.  Now we’re down to 8 currently, and hopefully 7 soon with the imminent return of Filppula.

2. If you have been under a rock and haven’t heard about Bring Herm to Hockeytown, I encourage you to immediately check out the great show of goodwill started by A2Y and the chief.  This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever been a part of as a Red Wings fan.  I’m honored to be part of a fanbase that is pulling something like this off.  Let’s bring our great Brazilian friend up here and show him a great time at the greatest of all sporting events.  We take it for granted so much that we can see the Wings.  Herm, here’s to a great trip and hopefully a bunch of money raised for you and for the Children’s Hospital.

3. Seriously, if you aren’t reading them, read the blogs on the right.  It’s the only way to get through a season that is this stress-inducing and the writers are fantastic.  I’m especially glad to also be a listener of The Obstructed View, the new Red Wings blogger podcast that is being put on.  Great stuff there.  Keep up the good work guys.

4. Side note, This Red Wings team is fun to watch.  Why?  They’re the friggin Red Wings.  I don’t care how injured they are.  I love watching that Winged-Wheel on the ice every time I get the chance.  You should too.  Period.  We all complain…even I do, in the end, we’re fans of the greatest sports franchise on the planet.  Own it.  It’s a great feeling to sit back and realize our minor-leaguers are competing and winning against regular NHL lineups.  LGRW.

5. Recap over.  I’m moving on to the Chicago game tomorrow.  Preview coming soon.
