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.
I can now sleep soundly at night knowing that T.O. has a permanent place to live in Buffalo that is suitable to his wants and needs. Seriously, I was so worried that I would lay awake hours on end at night thinking, "Oh No! Whatever will T.O. do? There is absolutely no suitable housing in Buffalo that fits his lavish lifestyle! Can he live in a house that would be suitable to the rest of WNYers or say it isn't so an apartment?" It's amazing how there was no housing that TO could stand to habitat in for an entire year or let's face it about 4 months which is the length of an entire football season. What's even more amazing is that the people of WNY or anywhere actually care and what's even more amazing on top of the is the fact that I'm actually wasting my time to write about it. I'll be honest I was starting to worry. My worrying was so bad it was starting to affect my job and relationships. *PHEW* I'm glad that is over because nothing in my life or anyone else's could cause as much concern as T.O. not being able to find a suitable house to live in for a few months.
Since there really isn't any interesting news on the Sabres and Bills home front minus the fact that TO can't find a place to live and is venting about it on twitter. I'll right about something interesting that I noticed the past few nights. I have watched the movies, "Along Came Polly", "Great Expectations", "America's Sweethearts", "Now and Then" and "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" and you know what all these movies have in common?........ Hank Azaria! Now Hank never has the A-list leading rolls and may have slipped from your memory that he was involved in all those movies and then some, but the ex-Mr. Helen Hunt himself has quite the resume. He is currently starring in a "Night in the Museum 2: Battle at the Smithsonian" and how can you possibly forget that he voices numerous of favorite Simpsons' characters ie Chief Wiggum, Apu, Moe, Comic Store Guy, Professor Fink, Bumblebee Man and many more. This man is a plethora of voices and has numerous credits today. Since there is nothing better to write about today... we salute you Hank Azaria as the first "Person to Talk About When There is Nothing Interesting Going on Sports Wise in Buffalo of the Day!" You should feel very honored.
