I only have one thing to say about this picture... why does MaDonna get to be carried in on hockey sticks by the NY Rangers to the Late Show and the Sabres have never once offered to escort me to an important event like this? Okay, maybe two things... doesn't Drury look like he's got the bulk of MaDonna's weight and the rest are sort of lending a hand. Way to take all the work for the team Captain Drury.
I'm ashamed to say that the first Sabres Game I will be able to watch this season will Friday October 16th and I might not be able to watch that one because the director of the studio maybe going on a family vacation for the first time in 14 years since opening the studio because she has never trusted anyone enough or thought anyone was qualified enough to run the studio if she wasn't there, except for me. Great for me professionally, more hours, responsibility and $, bad for me as a Sabres fan because I can only watch Wed. and Fri. night games this year to begin with because of my work schedule and I'm going through major Sabres/hockey withdrawal. I was able to catch part of the Caps/Leafs game on Sat. night because CBC was airing that game and not the Sabres/Habs game and I got a minor hockey fix. Also Laich scored and well he's my boy. I did receive a text from Harley telling me Sir Christopher was quite feisty and picking fights. That's what I like to hear. Other than that I hope to be able to watch them soon and I hope the Bills get their act together quickly because yesterday was just a shit show against the Dolphins... the DOLPHINS!?!?!?!
Holy Shenanigans! It's been about two months since I last posted. What? Have I turned into Ryan Miller? Nah, my butt is nicer with a little more cushioning. Not non-existent.
Well, Life has been happening for me, but not so much on the hockey/Sabres front. Minus the whole Patrick Kane incident. His new rap name is 20 cent.... I can't take credit for that corny joke. I saw it in ArtVoice. I think that event is going to chalked up to a young talented athlete who thought he was invincible and wouldn't have to deal with any negative consequences from his actions, because he's a big hockey star and the rules don't apply to him. That or someone was little bombed and participating in underage drinking at Chippewa. Maybe a little bit of both. Just my thoughts....
I'm not going to dive into all the Sabres off-season trading and what not because I currently do not possess the time to do so, but I will ask this question... What is going on with Drew Stafford? Is he playing for us or not? Any answer is appreciated. Thanks!
Congratulations to Ryan Miller for being invited to the USA Olympic Camp for hockey. Yet, I think the USA Olympic commission is forgetting another player that they need to invite... a Mr. Paul Gaustad. I guess I have to except some of the responsibility in Goose not getting invited to the Olympic Camp, I mean I am his unofficial and self-proclaimed campaign manager and I did take it upon myself to create the "Honk the Vote Campaign Gaustad in '09" for the NHL All*Star game this year. I mean I did create t-shirts with Harley, but I have been slacking for the "Now Do You Believe? Gaustad is Good! Scary Good! Gaustad in 2010 in Vancouver" campaign. I have completely neglected it since I announced it February. So, it's time for me to light a fire under my behind and get back into gear with the campaign! I can't vote to have Gaustad get on the USA Olympic team like I can for the NHL All*Star game, but I can do a lot of shameless promotion and try to devise a way to contact the USA Olympic committee. Hopefully there will not be any legal action against me, but for Goose it's worth it. Anyway if I do get thrown into jail, Goose is WNY's Superhero, so I'm sure he would find a way to bail me out because he is good! Scary Good!
Aren't we lucky to have the ultimate diva in our locker room at One Bills Drive? I really feel bad for Trent right now because given T.O.'s history and what I believe is Trent's character, we are going to have the odd couple out on the football field this season. Trent seems as drama free as they come. He also possesses great intelligence, class, a great work ethic, and talent to boot. T.O. brings more drama than Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton combined. The season hasn't already started and there's drama with him just trying to find a place to hang his hat for a season. I will sympathize with him on the fact that his realtor gave a tour of his new digs to Channel 2. That was wrong on her part especially since she signed a confidential contract and do you show video tours of all your client's houses? I think not. So you shouldn't have done it to T.O., but on the other hand, T.O. shouldn't have thrown a twitter-tantrum. I especially lost a lot of respect for him when he told someone who tweeted something not so nice to him to "Pound Sand!" Yeah, that person shouldn't have said that to you, but you are a public figure expected to act a certain way and you represent not only yourself, but the entire Bills organization and the NFL. You should've been the bigger man and just ignored it, but divas never miss a chance to be dramatic, eh? Hopefully the age old theory of opposites attract will be a recipe for success on the football field for the Bills and lead us to a Super Bowl Championship. Even if it doesn't at least we have Fox Sports sympathy of dealing with T.O.... quote / unquote... Good Luck to Buffalo with the ultimate diva. ... Thanks Fox Sports. I have a feeling we're going to need it.
