Okay, I can’t stand the idea that people might get up in the morning, and come here to my blog (possibly for the first time) and find a picture of a sad puppy followed by a post of many lines of “Let’s go Buff-a-lo,” so, I’m going to try to write something using my brain.
Here we go.
……You know what? I can’t use my brain tonight. I’m going to use my feelings. (I know. Barf.)
Well, that sucked. I was hoping for a lot more, and I’m sure you were too. I can’t make heads or tails of the Sabres right now, but I would like to say this: This year was a lot more fun than last. Ultimately, it was a disappointment, but hell, I better get used to it because this is what I signed up for when I willingly became a Buffalo sports fan.
Usually I’m one of the first in line to pile on the Sabres when they suck, but I’m just not feeling it tonight. I need to let the air clear before I kick them when they’re down (the kicks are coming, don’t you worry, dear reader).
Truthfully, I loved this season. There was more hope this year than I’ve ever experienced before as a Sabres fan. There was the sense that this is a team that’s improving. There were season tickets! (Sorry, that one is a little Katebits-specific) There was inspired goaltending. There was a killer rookie. And most importantly, there was a playoff car flag.
The end came too soon. That’s for sure. We have maaaany weeks to discuss the-end-that-came-too-soon.
Tonight I just want to say, thank you for coming to this blog and for sharing your thoughts about this (irksome) team. I am good and bummed, but I love the Sabres, and I love sharing my experiences as a fan with my fellow Buffalonians.
(PS- Stay away from Twitter tonight because it’s really surly in there.)
(PPS- We can start firing everyone tomorrow. And I do mean EVERYONE [except Myers, Ennis, Goose, Miller, and Vanek.] If we can’t fire them, we’ll trade them all for Iginla.
(PPS- Tomorrow we can also being begging Mike Grier not to leave us in Buffalo, alone with these bozos. Please don’t leave, Mike Grier. Please, please, please don’t leave.)
