It’s been months and months, but Disch and I have been trying diligently to get my mother to plop some words onto TPL, and finally – after a positively inspired performance by Jonathan Ericsson – she obliged. Below are her words, verbatim, no interjection or editing.
It’s been a spectacular few days.
Herm To Hockeytown was frolicking awesome! Herm is now a local sensation and will probably never talk to any of us again unless we go through his publicist. We met him on Thursday, he was shy and quiet; by Friday, he was twittering Emma Andersson (HANK WHO?!) and swept Robs new, hot girlfriend off her feet…and she wasn’t even there!
It was wonderful to put faces to names and we’re so grateful that you awesome winged wheeler fans came from far and wide to make H2H a huge success. And your generosity, unbelievable; $5365.72, all for Children’s Hospital.
The people involved in making this happen deserve a group hug…your countless hours spent planning the event resulted in one hell of a party!
I’d like to recap the game for you, but Jonathan “Gettin’ Riggy wit it” Ericsson scored and poof, time stood still. The shock & awe of it ground the earth’s rotation to a halt.
To all that I’ve had the honor of meeting these past few days, and to all my newly “adopted” kids, it’s been a blast. Be safe and GO WINGS!!!!
I love you, TPL Mom. That is all.
Your adopted daughter,
Saying that TPL Mom is da shit could possibly be the most redundant statement known to man, but with that said
TPL Mom is DA SHIT!!!!
Aww shucks you guys…you're making me teary.
Since Kris, Sara, Nitz & Mike came up with a new "vocabutastic" word EAVESED (see prior post) I'd like to introduce another here. ERICSSONIAN.
Game on for a definition and remember…be nice…I love him!
So many of my dreams came true with this post…TPL Mom finally penning a post…confirmation of Ericsson finally not playing like a drunk retarded kid out there…more new TPL terminology…
It's a banner Monday. Oh…and is this official confirmation that you approve of my choice in females? (even if Herm stole her?)
Hoorah for TPL Mom! Nicely done.
I think Nat just Fed Ex'd the official adoption paper work to you
Ha, I love the recap! Only you could get away with Big Rig scored and just stop 🙂
It was so great meeting you and I'm really hoping I get to use "Ericssonian" tonight at the game
TPL Mom – you are probably the single-most awesome mom in the Red Wings Nation. In fact, I guarantee it. I only hope I'm half as cool as you when I have kids someday! Your love for the Big Rig has propelled me to give him a second chance, so thank you for that. And when he scored on H2H night, I honestly thought the world stopped for just a second so that you could get in your celebration. The fanning of you using the tin-foil hat is probably one of the best memories I'll have for that game.
Glad to have been a part of the definition of "Eavesed." Sara & I always use "Giant" when we term anything related to Ericsson, but I can definitely see this working. Johnny had a "Giant" goal the other night. I'll brainstorm a definition…
