Heaven forbid we talk about ourselves in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we state our opinions in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we post something that is not happy and fluffy, and is instead angry and argumentative in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we post something that someone on our F-list doesn't agree with, in our own journals.

Heaven forbid that we are not unfailingly polite in our own journals.

Heaven forbid we don't post what you want to see in our own journals.

This is my journal, my space, and I'm not forcing you to read. No really, you can scroll. Honest. That's what that little wheelie thing on your mouse is for. You can disagree, and comment to that effect, if you want to. Fostering discussion is a good thing. I enjoy having debates and discussions about things, I really do. I am not, however, going to change my mind, or my posts, to suit you.

I don't expect everyone to like or agree with what I post here, but I do expect that I be given the same courtesy as I would give you, which is that, you know, you have the right to your voice. I have the right to agree, disagree, or to simply not give a shit. It works both ways.

I'm not forcing you to comment either. You can, if you want to, but if you don't, I really don't care. It's up to you. I'm just here to write what think, and to do it in my own little corner of the interwebs. You're welcome to contribute, or not. Don't feel obligated to comment, just because I'm on your F-list. I don't comment on a post out of obligation, and I certainly don't expect anyone else to. It's up to you.

I F-lock the things I don't want everyone reading. I do have anonymous comments disabled, because I want people to own their words. I don't post and disable comments; it is not my intention to discourage discourse and discussion. I don't mind that, nor do I mind threadjacking. I like to see people talking about their thoughts and opinions, whether they agree or disagree with the subject at hand.

I have the right to my voice, in my space. You have the right to agree, disagree, or not give a shit. You do not have the right to attempt to silence me. You do not have the right to demand that I change or take down anything I post here. You do not have the right to insist that I post something I have not or will not post. Capiche?

I extend you this same courtesy, and I expect to receive it in kind.

Oh yes, you read that right. This is what happens when I get sick and need something to take my mind off my nausea.

I turn the Red Wings (and a couple others) into Sailor Scouts. Yes, those Sailor Scouts. Crazy hair, miniskirts and all.

I left Sailor Turco outside the cut so you could WTF you were getting into :p

Getting the injured guys back? Is going to mean exactly squat. They're still going to play like shit. We've had (and still have) most of our "star" players. They have not been playing like stars.

Datsyuk, you are not living up to your hype, and should not be on the first line. Period. I don't care how much you "need someone who understands you". If you cannot produce on a line with fucking HENRIK ZETTERBERG, your very own Eurotwin... well, I think that says it all.

Our coach? Is not coaching like he should be. You can't roll the same lines every night and expect miracles. You cannot have zero goalie rotation, burning one guy out and leaving one to rust, and expect miracles. You cannot decide to stick a guy on a different line for one fucking period, and expect miracles.

This team? Has fractured in some weird way. I remember when we lost in game seven, everyone was all "Oh yeah, they'll come back, this will light a fire under their asses!" I thought that would happen too. So why the fuck hasn't it?

Why have we gone from 2008 Stanley Cup champions and the best, most cohesive team in hockey, to sucking ass in 08-09, but still, somehow, making it to the Stanley Cup Final, to losing the Stanley Cup, AT HOME, after seven games, to suffering a rash of injuries and still playing pretty well throughout that, to... continuing to suck ass again. I mean, we are barely clinging to the last playoff spot in our conference.


That is seriously all I want to know. The Red Wings can go back to being the Dead Things for all I care; I'll still support them, and proudly. I just want to know what the fuck happened to this team.

Oh, and on a half assed related note, remember how I was all "Yay, my pictures are backed up on my external drive!"? Yeah, well, that's gone and died too. It's all beepy-clicky, which is pretty much the death gasps of an external drive. I've only used the thing maybe a dozen times. So off I go to the computer place, to see if they can restore my shit. AGAIN.

Why doesn't this shit happen to anyone else?
