Whoa. Christmas.

I am still in Minneapolis, but I will be returning to the land of the Sabres tomorrow. Christmas this year was non-stop parties and cooking and merriment. Good times, but, oh Nelly, do I miss Buffalo and hockey and Center Ice. I think when I get home I’m going to have a marathon viewing of the Devils game followed by both DVRed Flyers games. Last night, because I was involved with hosting the last holiday party of the season, I didn’t even have a minute to wonder what was going on with the Ottawa game. Well, I’m glad I didn’t spend too much energy fretting about that one. Stupid Senators!

The Senators Who Stole Christmas

This might sound crazy, but I don’t love it when the Sabres are streaking. Don’t get me wrong, I never sit down to watch a game thinking, “I hope they lose this one, this streak is freaking be out,” but I’m suspicious of streaks. So, now the streak is over, the Sabres can win against the Devils and the Penguins, and then cruise into the Ice Bowl feeling confident, but not invincible. Perfect.

    I totally agree….streaks make me nervous. over confidence is a dangerous thing in music and sport…. let them enter the ice bowl with their wits about them not feeling invincible…..that’s the best way!
    Miss ya!

    Excuse me? I think not!

    Also, why doesn’t Staffy just eat a non-concussed brain like the good zombie he am?

    Sorry Kate. We own the Sabres. Nice spin on the loss though – there’s nothing better than ending a streak!

    Dany Heatley, it’s very bad manners to come onto my blog to cluck about your win! Shame on you! :P

    Pookie, I am totally perplexed by Staffy’s zombie-brain concussion. You make a good point. He just needs to eat more non-concussed brains!
