BIG Z !!!!!!
Zetts deserved it. Although it was really a team effort. I'm so happy for guys like Chellie, DMac and Dom.
The first memory I have of sports is seeing the Old Red Barn down on grand River in 1966. I was only 3 but Ive been enamored with that Big Red winged wheel ever since. The handing off of the Cup is still the only moment in Sports that gets me tearyeyed! Long live the wings and thanks for making my year!!!!!!
I think I'll get some Wings tonite. How does it feel KCM.
A timely banner Scoe, as always...good job!
CBC announcer, "I don't think that uniform has changed since they came into the league.... and it's perfect..... the winged wheel, Detroit, Motown......"
Me and my wife had to replay those last 12 seconds three times just to make sure that goal didn't go in...then the overhead cam played it out for us and confirmed it... I even got my in-laws to watch the last three games as they had never seen a hockey game and they are in their 70's
I missed it. Good thing. I woulda' had a heart attack. Great job and congratulations Wingers!!!! We are proud of you!!!
Really good timing, too -- after the Pistons took another huge dump in the ECF. 'Bout time for Babsy; he's had some talented teams. This is quite key with the Pistons facing ????? next season and the Tigers completely sucking, I needed something as a Detroit fan to get me through the summer. Thank you, Red Wings. And congrats to Mikhail for keeping the faith during the Wings' lowest point in the season and through all the injuries. That dude never lost confidence. That's a pretty good fan there.
Way to go, Wings! Weird that they were the ones playing with desperation most of the last 10 minutes. Pittsburgh was totally gassed or something. A last-gasp shot by the Penguins skirted the goal line though, with Osgood just managing to keep it in play. Cindy Crosby completely disappeared, as he has pretty much the entire series.
Tremendous!! Four cups in eleven years. What a magnificent accomplishment.
What did I tell y'all? Wings took care of the business on the road. Way to go. Pistons should take notice. Lidstrom is still going strong, even though he already had 3 cups. He still has that fire burning.
I concur Zoo, I thought the injuries would linger into the first round and knock them out then, thanks Mik
SAYS IT ALL, MAN
u getting my eyes teared up again..... again, OZ...tahnks thanks for the banner, Wave My team.... my first love... Go Wings!
congrats wings :winner_first_h4h:
This is my favorite Hockey post of all time on this forum.
I was sooo young when i wrote that..it seems have u ever seen JOHNNY DANGEROUSLY? There's a scene where the swedish ganster, Marconi, is being tried by the DA in court. When the Da shows a rifle Marconi used in a murder, Marconi replied, "Whered u get dat, eh?"Thats the first thing that came to mind when I read thisTHANK U< BIG BRUTHA WAVE!!!
I sure hope every other Detroit pro sports player, manager, executive and down to the last popcorn and beer salesman at any Detroit park watched this game and learned what real champions are.
