There he was: One man, betrayed by Red Wings nation on more than one occasion. "What have you done for me lately?" we often ask. One man vs one goalie. One chance to be the hero. One chance to be forgiven for a crime he didn't commit.
One chance for you to jump:
It wasn't always like this. Remember when we were all Happy?
Timely goals in big moments.
Crushing cheap shots that would knock non-midget pimps out of a game.
Chanting "Let's go Red Vings!"
But hey, what have you done for us lately?
With the game on his stick, and dozens of angry Texans packing heat for no reason, Hudler skated in on destiny. Hudler looked into Bachman's eyes as he skated toward the noob goalie and saw all he needed to see. Fear. Uncertainty. Doubt.
Hudler carried the puck far to Bachman's stick side. Bachman committed and hugged the post.
"Ah ha!" said Bachman "I have the post!"
"And I have the back of the net." said Hudler, coolly.
"Noooooooo!" cried Bachman, like a child.
At that moment, a camera caught the image that will be forever remembered by Detroit Red Wings fans as the moment Happy Hudler came back from Russia. Russian hookers swooned. Fans cheered. Bloggers edited past posts about trading him. And our very own Josh Howard went to work on Hudler's commemorative stamp.
In the stands, a young Peter Forsberg stood to leave. Having learned all he could, he had to get back to his time machine and return to the year 1994.
Thanks to Josh Howard for putting this together at the last minute. Also, big thanks to @apetrelak for the stamp idea.
Well, this post has taught me one thing people in Texas DON'T carry.... A sense of humor... Sheesh, come on guys.
@D.M.N If you don't remember some stuff from a few months ago my response might not have made sense. I know its a joke, as I see your post here is somewhat joking.
I was nearly entirely joking. Except for the part about carrying.
I am not from Texas either... Northern Michigan boy. No wonder I like hockey... almost part Canadian...
@magnum9 do you have a twitter account, mag?
Not worried about my email being up here either. Sorry, just thought it would be easier for you to just say what you needed if you could address me first.
@Twig I'm not much for drama if you couldn't tell. Don't know if I could take you yelling at me....
@Twig Couldn't care less honestly... Just enjoying making this the longest reply chain this site has possibly seen...
@Twig discuss it here... (grabs popcorn)...
@magnum9 Reference material?!? Ah, yes now I remember... That's a good bit than I suppose. Carry on.
@magnum9 The day a Sarcasim font is standardized is the day a collective "ooohhh, I get it" will be heard around the world...
@D.M.N I was referencing the post about that stupid inbred redneck from Colorado. That post actually had me a touch upset. So I saw an opportunity to jump in a stir the pot/joke... just for fun ya know?
Sorry to misunderstand the comedy in your post, Im a transplant from Michigan and here the gun issue is a hot one John Wayne is around every corner its seems. I posted because you were saying that you were done with this blog because of it. LGRW
@magnum9 Guns dont kill people, people kill people.
@magnum9 I can agree with that.
@WingNut83 That was the part I was joking about. I expected I would have to come out and say it, which is fine. Humor is tough to convey over the I-net.
One problem I have with Michigan is there is not enough people carrying legally. No wonder we have the highest crime rates.
"Texans packing heat for no reason"?
I think I may have to be done with this blog.
Packing heat does not require a reason. Being an American is the reason for packing heat. Use your rights or lose them. Not sure I can read some of this shit in here any more.
I live here in Texas too, I have alot of rights also. Does that mean I have to smoke, drink light beer, and drive a truck too big for my garage, when the only thing i ever carry around in it is a six pack, a shot gun and a pack of smokes? Everything listed above in different combinations are recipes for a disasterous outcome. We're talking hockey here partner, not polictical or social issues. I had a right to wear a suit of armour to the game Tues. I have yet to come across the need to wear one at a hockey game, I imagine the same would be true for a gun.
@magnum9 I grew up in Deep East Texas (AKA, NW Louisiana) and personally I found it funny. Where I grew up it was perfectly legal to have a loaded shotgun hanging in the rear window of the pickup, but we all still laughed at the old timers who did it in town. It was just a really good way to get your gun stolen!
sooooooooon. Maybe pre playoffs if he keeps up solid play. He's earned my respect enough that I don't call him the worst player on the team anymore. @reecardoraul
@Josh Howard Would be hard to pick a worst, they are all playing pretty hard at this point. I really like our depth, just need one more hot power forward to put the scoring over the top.
Totally off topic: Did anyone catch the post game interview last night with Conks? Trev asked him if the win would make the following day off that much better, his reply; "oh, it's gonna be real nice...there's not too many worse places to have a day off than Phoenix". Anyone think that was an intentional comment or merely a freudian slip? If that's what he meant to say, conks may be my new favorite player!
Awesome win, awesome streak we have started, awesome post on Hudlum, our favorite hooker-lovin midget pimp, and awesome stamp! Ideas like that could maybe save the US Postal service…aw hell, who am I kiddin!? Nothin could save that!
--"Noooooooo!" cried Bachman, like a child.--
I hear this in Vader's voice.
Also? I want this stamp...for realz.
