Are You Freaking Out? Me Either!

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.)

    FOR GOD’S SAKE, KATEBITS, STOP PANICKING!!!! THERE IS NO REASON TO PANIC!!!!! WE ALL JUST NEED TO *CALM DOWN*. DEEEEEEP BREATH. SEE DON’T YOU FEEL BETTER NOW??? I DO. VERY CALM. AHHH.

    (BTW CAPITAL LETTERS DENOTE NO PANIC. NONE. NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT. NOT EVEN THE SMALLEST, MOST MICROSCOPIC MORSEL OF PANIC. NOPE, PURE RELAXATION OVER HERE. SERENITY NOW. I HAVE DEFINITELY NOT, FOR EXAMPLE, DONE THE MATH TO FIGURE OUT THAT IF WE CONTINUE AT THIS PACE, WE WILL LOSE SIXTY GAMES. ONLY A PANICKING PERSON WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT. WHEEEEE. I LOVE HOCKEY.)

    i’ve already pressed the panic button so many times this young season that i think i’ve broken it. 0-4 at home to start the season. YIkes with a capital YI!

    For what it’s worth, seemingly everyone in Minnesota right now is in full-on, butt-clenched, tooth-grinding, spittle-flecked panic mode over the Wild’s 1-1-1 start. Seriously – the Wild fans want the coach fired RIGHT EFFING NOW. No word on whether that means they miss Jacques Lemaire.

    (Also, I strongly suspect that the Twins’ latest ignominious exit from the first round of the playoffs isn’t helping people’s patience level.)

    HAHAHAHA to every single comment on this post!

    Sam, your comment is particularly amusing in light of what I just posted. MY MOOD HAS SHIFTED. :P (Also, I think the Bills monumental suckiness made everyone a lot more desperate for the Sabres, and, well…the Sabres aren’t really helping matters. I don’t let the Bills get to me, but their season seems to bleed over into the mood of the Sabres sometimes.)
