Red Wing star, Chris Osgood, a fellow Plymouth resident, has maybe the coolest backyard ice rink you can imagine.  Not only is the rink really cool, there’s an old fashioned log cabin style hockey shed.  It’s a place to warm up by the fire and put on or take off your hockey gear.  Ozzie entertains the neighborhood kids at his rink.  I want to be invited so badly I can almost taste it.

Thanks to Plymouth’s own Chris Osgood, and his fellow Red Wings, on a helluva playoff run.  The Wings represent the Detroit area and the entire state of Michigan with class and dignity and they are amazing athletes that are fantastic to watch.

It’s kind of depressing that Ozzie will not be bringing the Stanley Cup to Plymouth this year, but there’s always next year.

Our local hero, Chris Osgood, has been great the last 2 games of the Stanley Cup Finals, but his team didn’t bail him out last night.  The series is tied 3 all and coming back to Detroit for game 7.

I want the Wings to win the Stanley Cup so bad I can taste and smell it.  Statistically they are overwhelming favorites, but stats don’t play the game, players do.  The Penguins can be great when they want to be.  Friday’s game could be a real nailbiter.

Whatever the outcome is, it has been great fun watching this team in yet another deep playoff run.  Chris Osgood has been spectacular and, if the Wings win, is likely to win the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP.)  Go Ozzie! Go Wings!  Bring the cup home again!

Some rather enterprising neighbors have found a really cool way to show their support for our Detroit Red Wings.   Take a look.

If you want to see the sign for yourself, the house is on Harvey between Linden and Wing.  You can’t miss it!

I’m very jealous.  This might be the coolest expression of team support by fans that I’ve seen.  Hats off to these folks.
