Passageway

When I was in college, and things seemed more stressful/horrible/dramatic than we could handle, my friends and I would remind one another that, “All of this,” and then we’d wave our hand indicating the entire college campus, “is just a passageway to bigger and better things.”

Sabres fans, this (*waves hand at the six game losing streak and the horrible train wreck that is the Buffalo Sabres*) is just a passageway to bigger and better things.

I certainly can’t guarantee that this passageway leads to the Cup or even A SINGLE WIN EVER IN THE FUTURE OF THE SABRES EVER EVER EVER AGAIN, but I can promise that we have some good things in the future.  Namely, the Olympics.

Thankfully we’re about to get a break.  We’re getting a break, and during this break we can obsess over far, far stranger sports, and we can find new heroes, and best of all, we won’t have to watch the Sabres lose.  (Actually, I assume we’ll be seeing LOTS of Sabres losing, but they’ll be losing for other teams, so who gives a rip.)

Just hold on Sabres fans.  We’re almost there.  Just one more loss game to go, and then we’re HOME FREE.  Soon it’s all figure skating, and bobsledding, and that weird sport where they ski and then shoot things.

We can worry about this unsightly mess (*waves hand at the Sabres*) later.

    …my friends and I would remind one another that, “All of this,” and then we’d wave our hand indicating the entire college campus, “is just a passageway to bigger and better things.”

    I do not recall any such level of maturity and far-sightedness. I just remember a lot of general freaking out and bitching about things.

    But maybe this was something you and the rest of the McDonald’s crew said when I wasn’t around. I probably would have just continued freaking out and bitching, anyway. Would’ve totally ruined the vibe.

    Sam, it was mostly a Pepto thing, and they way I wrote it here probably does make it seem more mature than it actually was. “It’s a passageway to bigger and better things” was something I think that we started saying as a joke because we thought it sounded so cheesy, but then evolved into a muttered-under-the-breath-in-absolute-desperation/exasperation type mantra.

    The McDonald’s Posse was all about freaking out. I think that’s all we ever did actually. Freak out and make fun of other people.

    So “It’s a passageway to bigger and better things” is kind of like Frank Costanza’s SERENITY NOW! mantra? That’s kind of fits how I feel about the Sabres right now.

    SERENITY NOW! SERENITY NOW! SERENITY NOW!

    Yeah, it’s pretty much EXACTLY “SERENITY NOW!” :D

    The word passageway always makes me think of those old text adventures of ancient computing.

    “You are standing in a darkened passageway. You can move North and West. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.”
