I'm usually one to stick to my SBN home over at St. Louis Game Time, but I come with an offer you can't refuse!
Over at Game Time, we like to mix things up as much as we can, via Project Mayhem. Currently, our efforts are being focused on ESPN America's current internet vote. The topic: which game they will air live on Friday November 27th. The options: Redwings vs. Flames and Thrashers vs. Hurricanes. Now, we Blues fans have a saying that we like to use quite often. However, since I'm a guest here and don't know PensBurgh's stance on language, I'll translate it to Swedish: "Fan Ta Detroit!" Which is exactly what we're trying to do. This poll was pretty stacked in the Evil Empire's favor (when we found it last weekend, it was about 78-22), but we still have a bit of ground to make up: last time I checked, it was 59.58-40.42. My fellow GTers and I have already posted this at Canes Country, The Copper and Blue, Mile High Hockey, Anaheim Calling, Second City Hockey, Fear the Fin, and Defending Big D (and possibly Birdwatchers Anonymous and Pension Plan Puppets, I’m not 100% sure on those), but we still
want nay, NEED your help, Pens fans! We know you guys love to hate the Redwings just as much as us, and while we’re in different conferences and our interests don’t coincide very often, this is the perfect time for us to come together fight a common enemy: the European Redwing fan!
For those of you who don't know, ESPN America is an international channel, so no one in North America will be affected, but if any Detroit fan in Europe has a terrible evening because they don't get to watch their team play, then really, don't we ALL win?
Fan Ta Detroit!
PS – I hear other than the recent injury, Jay McKee has been a bit of a hit at The Igloo – glad that worked out well for the both of us!
