A battle of the special teams

Are you ready? I'm nervous as hell. And it got 10 times worse this morning when I'd read that Mick McGeough is going to be reffing tonight's game. Oh, sweet jesus. Make it stop...

I'm very glad, now, that I won't be watching this game live. No, I'm going to a Blue Jays game (yeah, heathen) and PVRing the game to watch as soon as I get home. So if it becomes the McShow, I'll be able to fastforward past the flailing arms and ill-timed whistles to see the result.

As for my predictions? I think it'll go to seven games.

I think Detroit has a huge edge in coaching.
I think otherwise, the teams are comparable.

I'm very hesitant to make detailed predictions because they're all simply shots in the dark. But, since I'm being forced to make one, I'm going to say (Go Flames Go) Flames in 7...we'll win them all at home and squeak out 1 road win. Hopefully Sunday...

(please...go flames go...please...please)


  1. Oh, lord. Is this true?

    MCGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (Best done Kirk-style, you know which effect I'm trying for)

  2. I would not lie about something as serious as that...

  3. But my preciousssssss! He hateses us, yessss he doessss...

  4. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Colbert style).

    God dammit, what are the odds?

  5. *curls in a ball and wails* NOOOOOoooooooo.......... (crazed HG style)

  6. I don't understand how this guy qualified for the playoffs, given the year he's had...

  7. Hopefully your PVR is as lucky as mine...

    Maybe I should just set mine up to tape the game, and go do something else for three hours...

    Seriously, McGeough? What are the freaking chances...

  8. Oh wow, what are the odds?


  9. I don't understand how this guy qualified for the playoffs, given the year he's had...

    Maybe he and Amonte share some photo of Playfair and Bettman in a compromising situation...

  10. Hmm...Kyle beat me to that particular phrase.
