Does a Broom Fit in a Carry-on Bag?

It looks like it will be mostly pride on the line when The Franchise journeys to the Big D in less than 48 hours for Game 4 between the Wings and Stars. At this point Dallas is looking for something, anything to slow down the Detroit onslaught.

You have to think that Mike Modano watches the show put on by Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg and thinks, "Damn, that was me about ten years ago!" It's okay though Modano - as an American and video game legend, you'll always have a special place in the heart of all DudeSpin staffers, even this Detroit fan.

I'll show you what you can do with your broom.

Not a very eloquent comeback but I guess I deserved that to some extent!

Seems like there's only one team that's only lost one game so far these playoffs...

(yes, I'm finally lumbering on to the Pens bandwagon...)

The Dude said...

wow, I can't believe Jaromir Jagr and Mario Lemieux are still good enough to carry the Pens this far!

The Franchise said...

SportsGal, the Pens are next on the hit list once the Wings finish off the Stars!

I have some family connections out in Western PA so I am hoping if the Wings-Pens final does materialize I'll be making an appearance for one of the games at the Igloo...

The Dude said...

wow... that matchup should be something else... will the backline of lidstrom and larry murphy, with the forechecking of kozlov and larionov, be enough to contain lemieux and jagr?? only time will tell, i suppose.

The irony of the Wings, is that many of the players the Dude remembers from the 90s still are around today.

you guys will be proud of me - at least partly. Last night at bar trivia, one of the questions was "the new jersey devils have retired the jerseys of two defenseman in their franchise history, name them." Based on my knowledge of late 90s hockey, i guessed Scott Stevens and Rob Neidermeier. It turned out to be Stevens and some guy I have not heard of. No partial credit, unfortunately.

Lemieux IS still around... Sidney Crosby lives in a wing of his house here.

Dude, you're actually worrying about getting the right answer at bar trivia these days instead of cheating like you did at the James Joyce? Such maturity... We do bar trivia here too, but we have a Canadian on the team to handle hockey.

And Franchise, let me know if you come to the Burgh... you're welcome to stay with me if your brother's not here anymore...
