New Kid on the Wings Bloggin’ Block

Welcome to Detroit Deke, a blog which will be primarily devoted to news/notes/ranting/rambling/ravings/riveting conversations about the Detroit Red Wings. It will aspire to compete will the best of the best Detroit Red Wings blogs…it will be passionate and energetic…it will play a 60 minute game…it will persevere through agony and defeat and rise to the occasion!

I know there are about 584958 other Wings blogs, so you may ask, how will D2 be unique? Well, I don’t have an answer to that question yet. I did just come up with a semi-cool abbreviation for my blog though, did you catch that??

There are very few things in life I love more than the Red Wings. However, I should just admit, right off the bat, that I am a proud Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Sadly, by saying that I quite possibly just destroyed all of my credentials and no one will believe a word I type ever again. I won’t go into my whole why-I-<3-the-Leafs spiel here (maybe in the future, i.e. in the summer when my hopes are irrationally high for Toronto), but I just needed to get that off my chest.

I’m a proud (suburban) Detroit girl. You may find small doses of Detroit Tigers talk in this blog, but sorry, no Pistons or Lions. Squeaky shoes and football are my #1 and #2 pet peeves.

ANYWAY. I just wanted to get my first post out of the way so this blog didn’t look so sad and empty. Game 5 is tonight and I have already alleviated a bit of my nervous energy by writing this. w00t!

Oh! If you made it this far, you might as well follow me on Twitter! Or, as Ozzie calls it, T-W-I-DOUBLE T-E-R. It’s mostly hockey-related thoughts, I promise.
