Detroit lost their first round playoff series against the elite Anaheim Mighty Ducks 4-0. Those [housecats]. I guess no match-up with the Colorado Avalanche is coming. I’ll get over it.

Colorado, except for an “operational pause” in the second period of Game 1, is headed for a unilateral cakewalk against the Minnesota Wild. They’re up 3-1. Dallas (the first seed in the Western Conference) is bogged down against Edmonton, and Vancouver is in a total quagmire against St. Louis.

I guess those analysts that said Colorado made a mistake by winning the last game of the season and playing Minnesota instead of St. Louis were mistaken. No reinforcements needed. They’re on plan.

And isn’t it a relief that we can joke about these military issues at this point?
