It's the best thing about spring...

At last, playoff hockey for the Detroit Red Wings resumes this week. This year, having had a bit of healing rest time for injured players, we're ready for the Sharks. As is my tradition at this time of the year, here's a little Led for your head. And Tampa? You're my heroes!

Go Wings!


"Immigrant Song"
Led Zeppelin

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

Right now I can, with a light heart, say: "Good Luck!" to your team. This may change as we move forward, though. Now that Vancouver has gotten by Chicago, we'll be concentrating on Nashville for a while.
Enjoy your games.

Let's Go Blues!! Oops...they are not in the playoffs. From what I hear your team is pretty good Rudee.

Our Caps are there too - and Pooldad told me that we could feasibly play the Wings in the Stanley Cup.

That's what I want. :wink: I do have a problem with the whole overlap of sports tho' - baseball starts and hockey and basketball haven't finished yet. It is just weird.

I'll take it. Gives me something while I wait for football. :D

Gotta love Tampa for two reasons: Knocking the Pittsburgh Pitts out of contention, and they are The Captain's new team. Only one man will ever be "The Captain."

Now that my son's home for the summer we're watching hockey at my house too. Of course we're rooting for the Canucks. All in good fun.

As a Blackhawks fan, all I can say is love the Zeppelin. You know for my rabbit, Dammit.

Well good luck to your team. I am studying the horses now for the Oaks and Derby. That is if it doesn't rain us all out. The boundary line at the Ohio gets further up the hill every day.

The beginning of that song where Robert Plant hits those high notes still gives me the goosebumps....or a proper hot flash. ;-)
