Wizard Of Oz

No, not the one with the munchkins!  I'm talking about Chris Osgood, the fantabulous goalie for my beloved Red Wings!

Chris just had a birthday on Monday (he's 35) & tonight he had another awesome game in Net.  The Wings beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4 to 2.  *cue evil laugh*

I found this great article about "Ozzie" by George Johnson of the Calgary Herald.  

Chris has been one of my favorites since 1993, his first season as a Wing.

Let me just tell you that I was in HockeyHeaven during the '05-'06 campaign when both Osgood & Manny Legace were backstopping the Wings!  Legace plays for St. Louis now, but I still adore him.

Stars of the Game: Jiri Hudler, Pavel Datsyuk, & Dan Cleary.  I'm giving my personal Star to Andreas Lilja, who fed a perfect pass to Thomas Kopecky, resulting in the third goal of the night.

Other Games Around the League: Who cares!  None of my other boys were playing!



Next Game: Saturday against the Phoenix Coyotes, who are 12 points behind us.  Hmmmmm...Phoenix has to face Chicago first.  Go 'Hawks!

Wait a minute. You're saying Phoenix has a hockey team?! Mon dieu! They must have to import their players!

KOOOOOOSH!!!!! *grin*

Actually, the Coyotes are the former Winnipeg Jets! Or Weinerpeg, as toady likes to call it!

The Great One himself (Wayne Gretzky) is the Coyotes head coach.

I'm so glad you came to visit!!!!!! *squishes Koooooooooshie*

"They must have to import their players!"

All hockey players are from Canada. Anyone who says otherwise is lying.

Well YEAH, except for the ones fron Russia...Sweden...the USA...the Czech Republic. *snort*

However, I will agree that hockey is the National Sport of Canada.
