Sometimes you have to know when you’re trying to eat an elephant’s Ronnie Ronnqvist posted a massive, several-chapters-long interview with former Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg this morning.

Normally, I’d try to translate it, even though it’s a good 10 pages long, but I’m a French fried potato this morning, trying to cover the Wings and Griffins this morning, and I’m facing walls of fatigue and anxiety this morning (I may very well take Monday off as the Wings aren’t going to practice tomorrow), so:

For the moment, I’m going to encourage you to head over to Google Translate and read the interview or chunks thereof at your leisure. The truth of the matter is that this is several interviews stitched into one “Old School Hockey” article, and there’s some new stuff, some old stuff, and a mix of the two in the interview, and not all of it might be very interesting to you as a Red Wings fan because Ronnqvist asks Zetterberg to share stories about people involved in his development as a hockey player.

I’ll try to tackle chunks of the article over the next couple of days, but I’m not in any shape to translate ten pages of Swedish right now, and there’s nothing earth-shattering about the interview or its content, so I’m going to leave reading it up to you for now. Sometimes you have to know when your body and brain are about to break down, and that’s where I’m at this morning.

We can only eat the elephant one bite at a time.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

One thought on “Sometimes you have to know when you’re trying to eat an elephant”

  1. No problems here, Health is a 1st Priority, always.

    I would suggest Swedish Meatballs in place of French Fries even if they are curly. I would think that would be Healthier.

    Just relax , Completely would be Best (Do Not watch the Wings Game, these games are known to cause Tension, Tremors, Disgust, etc ) in Wings’ Fans which you don’t need.

    Will read your Blog whenever.

    Stay Safe and Take Care!
