If you were wondering why Red Wings fans are THE Best in the World. Just watch this video.

NO ONE else comes even close to this type of environment and culture.

This crowd is amazing and I wish I could have experienced this night.

I feel like Young and Menace is a little mesh of 90s grunge and new age electric/edm ishhh??? and I just kinda love it???

If Yuuri was a stripper back in Detroit Pt 23
  • Yuri P: So like, I have this idea for my exhibition skate...
  • Yuuri: Yeah?
  • Yuri P: It's for a heavy metal glam piece where I strip from my bedazzled jacket to reveal a heavily ripped shirt and basically do some edgy rage-induced choreography with a signature Johnny Weir slide that gives the audience a nice nip shot. Also Otabek is there.
  • Yuuri: ...And you need my help because...?
  • Yuri P: You stripped for a living, what's the coolest way to tease off a jacket? Also I need to borrow Viktor's Gucci shades, I'm gonna whip 'em across the ice.
  • Yuuri: Jesus Christ.
