All-Star Game Whoring: Detroit Red Wings

Starting today, MYFO will begin a steady ramp-up to the NHL’s All-Star weekend. We have a bunch of posts planned to get you psyched for a game that will not be featuring Hockey Jesus. Stick around today, tomorrow, and throughout the weekend. We’ve got some neat stuff in store for you.

Our second Versus Video for the All-Star Game comes from the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings, as we all know, suck. They do. They’ve got a bunch of old players, name recognition, and a weak division, and because of that, half the team got voted into the All-Star game. After the jump, your MYFO Crew dissects the video

LeNoceur: I love Nick Lidstrom, but he comes across like Ralph Wiggum here. “The All Star game is neat, because guys you usually play against are on your team now.” That’s not very far from “My cat’s breath smells like cat food.” I also love the shot of another cameraman shooting Lidstrom walking down the tunnel. That’s so meta!

Weed Against Speed: This video is bullshit – not one car on fire? Granted, the video wasn’t about the city of Detroit but I heard by simply mentioning the name of the city, cars (or buildings) spontaneously combust. By the way, Red Wings: enjoy your President’s Trophy. We all know what happens come playoff time to the team that wins that. Oh, that’s right. You guys are all-too-familiar with how this is going to play out (see 2003-04 and 2005-06 seasons).

Reasonable Doubt: Jiminy Christmas–I was waiting for one of those flashbacks to go, “Back in my day, we had to walk fifteen miles in the snow! Barefoot! Just to play hockey! Only we didn’t call it hockey back then, we called it puckball. Which is weird, because there were no balls involved. Least of all, our own. Unless you count the onions on our belts, which was the style at the time.”

  1. Aww, shucks. It looks like due to the play I’m in, I’m going to miss most if not all of the liveblog. I mean, I’ll try to pop in, but no guarantees. Oh well…

  2. I chased that pesky Kaiser for dickity-six miles.

  3. “We all know what happens come playoff time to the team that wins that. Oh, that’s right. You guys are all-too-familiar with how this is going to play out (see 2003-04 and 2005-06 seasons).”

    … and how about the 2001-02 season, eh? Looks like Detroit won the President’s Trophy AND the Cup. Your logic is flawed.

  4. Red Wings fans are almost as easy to rile up as Boston fans. Thanks. It makes doing this fun.
