It's a big, big night in sports. No, I'm not talking about the Mavericks and Spurs. It's 3-1, and that comeback has only been made in the NBA 8 times out of 190 or whatever it is, though I will be watching. A fan must always watch.
No, the majority of my attention and many of yours will be aimed squarely at Versus and Glendale, AZ as The Phoenix Coyotes... the little Desert Dogs That Could, try to take down perennial playoff mainstays, the Detroit Red Wings.

In game chats:

We're going to murder those lousy Red Wing bastards by the bushel. Frankly, I didn't even know Detroit still had a team. And they won't after tonight.
Throw the snake, and go Yotes.
Head over to Versus.com where our hero, local Stars guru Mike Heika, writes a piece on Game 7. Go Mike, and Go Razor (who hopefully will be on the broadcast tonight...maybe?)
