Last night the Coyotes played the redwings and as always it was one interesting game. 

The best part of the game might have been the guy sitting in the row in front of us. He was obnoxiously cheering for Detroit and it was pretty obvious he didn't know anything about the team (not that uncommon 'round here). Later he admits to being an LA King fan. Ohhh, that explains the total douchebaggery going on there. He also thinks the Kings would beat the redwings in the playoffs or something like that. He was too insignificant to care to remember exactly what he said. He was trying to talk **** and he asked about where we were compared to the kings in the standings. I told him at this point the standings mean nothing and that shut him up for the most part. It also looked like he was wearing a nipple on his head... I think it was supposed to be a beanie. I think.

The next best was the girl behind me. She was wearing a shiny, brand new red Pavel Datsyuk jersey. It probably still had the price tags on it from when she grabbed it at Just Sports before the game. She was quiet during the entire game until Detroit was on the powerplay in the third (the third too many men of the night - communicate guys!). Detroit was trying to set up the shot but the lanes were clogged. She yelled out "SHOOT!" really loudly (my pet peeve... grr) and so I said to the BF, sure, go ahead and shoot Detroit. It'll never get through but yes go ahead, shoot. BF and I joked about it a bit and apparently she overheard. She suddenly became this obnoxious screaming fan who knew nothing about what she was saying. After Bertuzzi's goal, she started screaming and jumping around like they had just won the stanley cup. It was a little (ok, a lot) ridiculous.

I am still pondering what a guy a few rows in front of us was trying to say. He kept yelling, "Don't rub it" during the third. BF and people around us didn't get it either. None of us had ever heard "don't rub it" used during a hockey game before. Anyone have any idea what he was trying to say?

Raffi scores a goal.

Oh yah, there was a game wasn't there... Well, ummm, we tied. Went to OT. Went to a shootout. Mike Smith had some amazing saves. Bertuzzi made a douchebag move, scored. Wings won. Wings fans act like they just won game 7 of the stanley cup finals. PS I still hate shootouts. And I will never like them. Why don't we decide baseball by who hits the most homeruns out of three rounds? Or who makes the most half court shots in basketball? Or which kicker scores the most field goals in three rounds? Because those are lame ways to determine the outcome of a team sport. Gah.

Picture taken from here. Please go enjoy the rest of the gallery from the game.

Until next time...
