How Swede It Is!

I feel the need - the need for Swede!
Catch the Red Wave!
Are You In?

Hockey-blog / Photo-blog today - obviously. OOPS! Except for the last pic - that's my hubby. But being the typical testosterone-type male that he is, he needs his ego stroked from time-to-time, and I didn't want to exclude him, so I'm letting him be with the BIG BOYS today (Better, honey? =) who have my attention for the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 3 Game 1 tonight! Ooooo-la-la, especially that Zetterberg! Yikes!

Go Detroit! Get the Cup! *unless the Bruins are still in it that is!* ;)

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Cao, you're funny!

Nope, Bruins are NOT left in the running. There is:

Detroit Red Wings & Dallas Stars for the Western Conference


Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins for the Eastern Conference.


Tonight we took game 1 of round 3. Final score was Red Wings - 4, Stars - 1


I have the GREATEST tickets to next Saturdays game at Joe Louis Arena. And I mean THE BEST tickets! We're in the Executive (ice) level Row #7 right behind the goal!!!! I'm SO EXCITED!!!

So - watch for me on TV! =)

I was just in Detroit a coupla weeks ago - 1st time to the Casino in Greektown*

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Hey Billy! Yeah, Detroit (the downtown area, at least) has undergone some changes for the better over the last coupla years - although, I have to admit that living 2 hours away from it I don't get there all that often, myself, outside of playoff hockey games and the occasional Tigers baseball game. And I've never been to any of the 3 casinos yet - but do LOVE Greektown! Ooompah!! I do plan to drop in one of these times though - my mom goes and says they're great. They have a lot of top notch entertainers booking shows of late, so we'll be heading down more this summer.

Hockey update:

Red Wings win game 2 in Round 3 last night! Yahoo!

Our hockey hopes are dashed (the Sabres were not really "it" this year) so good luck to you. It's fun to be in it and hoping to win it. I think I will start rooting for Detroit now after reading your blog! My son says they are the best team in hockey.

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Ooooo Yay, Motherwise!

I love converts! LOL! =D

We won the game last night - Woot! Woot! Woot! Wednesday is game 4 of round 3. If we win, we play for THE CUP! The cup changes EVERYTHING! =)

If we lose, then we come back to Detroit for Saturdays's game at home - (of which I will be at!) - to win the series here at home, and then we'll head out with all the rowdy's downtown to the Hockeytown Cafe for celebrations! YES! Par-tay! Par-tay! Playoff hockey is such a riot!

Though I'd hate for them to lose tomorrow, I do sort of want to go to that game Saturday... selfish me. Oh well, if they win, then I'll be at a CUP GAME! Whoo-Hoo! Better yet.

Anyway, I think all the teams who make it this far are excellent teams. I'm just hoping that the Red wings will go ALL THE WAY this year!

For years I shunned hockey but watched my first game live and direct a couple months ago...

I hate to admit but it was blast! Now I just need to find a favorite team...

Kimba The White Lioness said...

Adrian, glad you discovered hockey rocks! It's so fast moving and exciting, isn't it?! I have the perfect favorite team for you... hint, hint... they start with "Red" and end with "Wings" - Voila! There you have it! =D

HOCKEY UPDATE from Round 3 Game 5 on Saturday 5/17/08:

Red Wings lose the game to the Stars at Joe Louis Arena 3-2.

We were at the game and it was exciting, but the Wings weren't in sync with each other and didn't play their best. So sad. We're still ahead in the series though 3-2. Hopefully we can close them out at the next game and take the Western Conference Championship, then play for The Cup!

Have Fun at the Finals ya Lucky Pup!!

Cheers Kimba + yer Red Wings!!

;)) Peace*
