I think it’s a little funny how we’re falling all over each other on Twitter to declare that we’re, “not pressing the panic button yet”. I honestly don’t think there is a single person in town who actually is panicking.
Panicking requires some element of, “OH MY GOD IN HEAVEN! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?! THIS IS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED AND ENTIRELY UNFORESEEABLE! NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS DID I THINK THAT THIS SITUATION COULD BE A POSSIBILITY,” and, well, let’s face it, that dynamic is not in play here.
The Sabres are just being the Sabres right now. (I know, Crunchy. The truth hurts.)
Please join me in a deep sigh of mild irritation to commemorate the annoying start to the 2010/11 season: *Inhale….aaannnd release*
Those of us who have been vigilantly watching this team for the last few years are definitely not panicking. We’re mostly just rolling our eyes and thinking, “Oh for pete’s sake, VANEK.“
(I will admit [in a totally nonchalant, non-panicking kind of way] that it would be nice if Myers stopped sucking. That one does have my blood pressure up just a teensy-tiny bit. Not panicking. Just wary.)
