Holy crap he scored a hat trick on opening night!!! Yup I’m talking about the one and only Justin “thatguy” Abdelkader. The red wings home opener was an amazing game! The new guy, Center Dylan Larkin, made an assist and a goal in his first NHL seasonal game, and Ericsson is fighting and mouthin off already. All that mixed in with the other players doing their thing and shutting out Babcock? It was an amazing game, just amazing!
It was also a Friday night in which, at my house, is pizza and movie night with the Aunts. I have just hooked up cable and internet again after a very long two months without them, but the game was on a channel I do not get. Disappointing, right? Well, little problem solver me found a way around that. Buffalo Wild Wings. Yup, they have every sports channel one could need for their every Red Wings hockey enjoyment. Thing 1, Thing 2 and I met with the Aunts there and had a fab time. Minus an Aunt and baby (baby was sick). Also met up with my step son and his mother (I still get the Teen about every other weekend or so) there for the last 20 min of game.
Gotta love Hockey and Family.
SIDE NOTE: I don’t think I have mentioned it on here before but the nick name I gave Abdelkader is because I couldn’t and still can’t say his name right. He is my favorite player. The Aunts tease me all the time saying “It’s “thatguy” Justin and I just cant help but say no its Justin “thatguy” you would just have to be there. 🙂
