    Everything's Coming Up Blues

    Well, almost everything, anyway. If Winnipeg didn't suck so much it would have been everything. The Blues won again last night, slowly choking the life from the Anaheim Ducks over 60 minutes of grind en route to a 3-1 victory.

    The Blues' Blazing Start

    ​​I lucked out yesterday and managed to finagle myself a pair of tickets to the Blues game through a work acquaintance.
