Zebras deciding a season?

So, I fell asleep on the couch before the incident, but the Wings got absolutely hosed, eh?

Totally unrelated: I went jogging this morning and I was wearing my Fab 5-era UMich shorts (Keno had the matching CWebb jersey, I had Jalen.) I probably got these in 1992, when I was eight years old. My point: they still fit comfortably. My conclusion: there may have been some excess in the baggy shorts reform of that time.

I’m glad we’re no longer here:

But this goes too far:

    Correction, Sloan you had the CWebb jersey. You gave it to me years ago…believe it or not, but the jersey doesn’t fit so well today.

    Dano, I gave you the GState CWebb jersey from his rookie season, but my Michigan jersey was Jalen.

  3. indeedindeed Says:

    And yeah, I don’t think the Jalen jersey would fit me either. But the shorts are perfect.

    you gave me the jalen jersey. i gave it to pat.

    stockton is superior to ronaldhino.

    I fell asleep long before the third period of the wings game. Sounds like a tough call, but frankly I am sympathetic to the ref in this situation.

    This call happens to every referee at some point, including myself despite a very brief career. Usually it’s not in the last second of a one goal game when the guy scores, but early whistles when the puck is in a scrum like that happen ALL the time, and there isn’t a really good way to avoid it.

    Referees are taught to blow the whistle as soon as they lose sight of the puck for a variety of reasons. Most notably because that’s where the vast majority of fights and scrums occur, when offensive players start digging on the oppositions goalie it causes problems. Technically it doesn’t actually matter when the whistle blows. As soon as the ref loses sight of the puck the play is over. This accounts for the time it takes for the ref to bring up the whistle and blow it. Even if that is only a fraction of a second its significant. that’s why when the puck goes in “simultaneously” to the whistle blowing, the goal doesn’t count.

    So the call was techinically correct, which sucks for the wings. But frankly the portion of the game I did watch, (First Period, start of second) they got somewhat outplayed.

    We miss rafalski on the powerplay and in getting the puck out of our defensive zone. Regardless I expected this series to go 6 or 7 games so now the Wings are in a must win for the first time in a while. We will see how they respond.

    i dont even know you kenny. there is no sympathy for the refs. he needs better eyes. the puck very noticably slid across the goal line. i think he was just expecting hiller to sit on which he clearly didnt. and thats the problem. he went on what probably should have happened but clearly didnt.

    also, when evertyone on one team is wearing black including the goalit its pretty easy to lose sight of a BLACK puck. the refs should take that into consideration as well. we got fucking hosed. FUCKING HOSED.

  8. indeedindeed Says:

    my entire hockey career was predicated on standing in front of the goalie and trying to bang home rebounds, so it infuriated me when the puck would be loose and the ref would lose sight of it and blow the whistle when i was about to score/miss wildly.

    i think it should be like basketball, where you just don’t call the foul at that point in the game.

  9. Kenny Says:

    unless the play involves Lebron, Dwade, or Kobe.

  10. Kenny Says:

    And zach, i’m not saying the call didn’t suck. Just that those calls happen all the time, and there isn’t much you can do about it.

  11. Tyler Says:

    i have a stockton jersey and a jalen jersey. booya

    i think the only other jersey i have is a penny hardaway one.

    also, the jalen is reversible…the other side is juwan howard. nasty

  12. indeedindeed Says:

    seriously, two different players on one jersey? i’ve never heard of such a thing.

  13. Kyle Says:

    I had a Jalen jersey also, and i am the king of hook shots. ie IC basketball hook shot to win the game.

    The Red Wings got outplayed in game 3 up until the ducks scored their second goal. After that goal it looked like they decided to turn it up a notch and completely dominated. The third period shots were 23 to 3. We got hosed at the end of the game, but as Kenny said it happens frequentley and this time the timing of it was really bad.

    Pronger is a good trying to fight datsyuk after the game is over, fighting someone who never fights and is a full foot shorter. Wings are going to come out strong and take game 4. The Ducks only have 2 solid lines and they are running out of gas, it was evident in game 3. We need rafalski back, draper also…

    i enjoy the fab-5 fit, but its not good for actually playing b-ball, not like we actually PLAY but rather shoot around.
