I just sat down and was going to post about the first Avalanche-Red Wings game of the season.

It’s already 2-0 Colorado.

UPDATE: It’s 2-1 at the end of 1. The game is WIDE OPEN, with great offensive, defensive, goalie, and special teams plays on both sides.

ESPN is running some shots of the filming of Disney’s THE MIRACLE, which opens tomorrow. I hope I can take my kids.

In my humble opinion, the US victory over the Soviets in 1980 was the greatest sports event in US history, at least in my lifetime. Herb Brooks died last fall in a traffic accident, and the word is that Kurt Russell does a great job playing the part.

UPDATE: Detroit wins 3-2 in OT. The Avs blew too many chances early. But. You want to see a bunch of bullshit, watch the highlights of the last two minutes of the game. I can maybe see the second call, but the first was what? What? Did someone do something? Watch the bearhug takedown and attempt at a pin on Joe Sakic, then tell me that ANYTHING anyone does is worth a call, let alone nothing. Well, I guess the Wings needed the win more than the Avs did.

At least I’m not bitter.
