Today is Easter.

Today, being Easter, is a time to reflect back to a man who died and what his death has given to all of us.

Roald Dahl.

Roald Dahl died in 1990. That also happens to be the last time the Red Wings missed the playoffs. Is the spirit of Roald Dahl watching over the Red Wings, and aiding their way into the playoffs year after year? Did Roald Dahl even like hockey?
I don't know, but it sure as hell seems convincing to me.

Some other interesting factoids I've come up with
  • Ever since Law and Order has been on the air, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
  • Ever since The Silence of the Lambs was released in theaters, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
  • Ever since Comedy Central's been in it's current format, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
  • Ever since Jamie Lynn Spears was born, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
  • Ever since Final Fantasy has been published and released for American consoles, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
  • Ever since Pee-wee's Playhouse has been OFF the air, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
and perhaps my personal favorite...
  • Ever since Stefanía Fernández was born, the Wings haven't missed the playoffs.
Who's that? Your reigning Miss Universe.
Also, since the Wings lost today, don't we get hot latinas anyways? Enjoy...
