Ohhhh yeah … The Detroit Red Wings are one more game away from winning the Stanley Cup!
Yes, Mrs. Spit … I know how upset this must make you. A non-Canadian team match-up for the title. But I must remind my friendly neighbors to the north, that Detroit has played a big part in the history of the National Hockey League. First of all, the Red Wings are one of the “Original Six” hockey teams still in existence from the first decade of the NHL. And second … anybody who knows hockey (and even quite a few that don’t) knows who Gordie Howe is. Yup. Mr. Hockey, No. 9 of the Detroit Red Wings. And finally, I do believe that Detroit is pretty much known league-wise as “Hockeytown.”
If you wanna know a really quirky fact concerning Detroit and Canada … Did you know that Detroit is the only U.S. city in which you have to drive south to cross the Canadian border? Yes … our friendly neighbor, Windsor, Ontario is the southern-most city in the great country of Canada, which makes many of those Cannucks that support our Red Wings have to drive north to catch one of our home games at “The Joe.”
And that, my dear blog friends, just might wanna make you scream, “Get the puck out!” Just like Hubby did multiple times tonite …

I may have to stop talking to you for a bit.
Love it Emily! Absolutely love it!!!! This win will make our lunch today even more exciting!!!! Get the puck out – I love that phrase!
We’ve been trying to get tickets to game 5 but refuse to pay 5 times the face value. They will win the cup tomorrow at home…and it’s been a dream to see them lift it at home. Oh well…I guess we’ll just watch it on the good ole tv. I’m going to try one last time tomorrow morning to see if the box office is going to release any more on game day.
Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s go Red Wings!!!!!!!!!!!!
I support the redwings! There is a newfie on that there team…
Um, I *totally* don’t follow hockey, so if it’s still on(?), good luck to your team!
Hubby is a penguins fan. At least he’ll be out watching it tomorrow night so I get a night to myself. Down side is he’ll be pissed when the Red Wings win, again. LOL.
I love this post!!! Now I know what you guys were talking about. 😉
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have visited yours before although I’m not sure if I left a comment. My dh went to grad school in Windsor, & I used to visit him there. Haven’t been there in many years now, though.
