I spent a lot of time trying to write a post today. I tried a funny one, I tried a serious one, I even tried an angry one. But all of those posts felt forced and unfocused. After trying to blog for awhile I realized that, basically, I feel really off-kilter about the Sabres. Uneasy. I don’t have a clear sense of what actually happened with Kennedy, nor am I able to use solid, grown-up logic to explain the deep sense of disappointment I feel towards Sabres management.
All I know is that after Darcy’s press conference I felt really, genuinely icky about the Sabres.
Maybe this is just one of those times when the business of sports is difficult to swallow as a fan, or maybe something much more gross and/or pathetic is going on with the Sabres, but honestly, I’m not sure I care. The bottom line is this: I love the Sabres, but I don’t want to be losing faith in them in August. If I’m going to lose faith, I want it to be during the season, in person, while I’m paying perfectly good money to sit in my seats at the arena.
So, please do me a favor, Darcy. I’m begging you. No more press conferences until October. I’m TRYING to suspend my disbelief over here, and you’re making it really difficult.
