Drop the Puck, Bitches!

It's that time of year again, y'all.  HOCKEY SEASON.  In honor of tonight's Home opener for my beloved Detroit Red Wings, here are a few pictures of the youngest Red Wings Fan in my house.  (These were taken quite a few years ago, since Daughter is nearly 7 years old, but she's still a BIG fan.)

Center Ice.  Tonight.  DROP THE PUCK!

Last year during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Daughter made a "joke" by yelling, "Go, Pittsburgh!", during one of the playoff games.

You could have heard a pin drop, as she stood there with the biggest smirk on her face.

But the joke was on her.  Husband and I told her since only Red Wings fans lived at our house, she was going to have to pack her bags and go live with Nana and Papa.

To which she replied, "Go Wings!"  The Kid knows which side her bread is buttered on.

And in case you are wondering why an octopus is in the second picture, the "unofficial" mascot for the Detroit Red Wings is Al the Octopus.  During playoff games, people throw real (dead) octopi onto the ice.  Why?  Because way back when there were only 6 teams in the whole hockey league, it only took 8 wins to win the Stanley Cup.  Today, it takes 16 wins...but the tradition in Detroit remains BECAUSE OUR HOCKEY TEAM ROCKS THE SHIT OUT OF EVERY OTHER TEAM....Oh, and that's a wing-nut hat on her head...get it?  "WING" NUT?  Yeah, I'm a Wing-Nut.  Crazy, rabid, wing-nut.  Oh, boys, don't let me down this year!  Go Wings!

Nice to exploit your kid like that...:)

Just kidding, of course. She's so damn small there.
