It appears that the Ice Bowl was not the end of the season. I know. Weird. Apparently, the Sabres are required to keep playing hockey for several more months. I guess I’m okay with getting to watch more hockey, but I’m a little peeved that our first opponent has to be the terrifying Senators. Why can’t we play the Capitals, or better yet, the Sharks (in San Jose)?
Shut up, Senators.
I may, or may not be watching the game tonight. You see, I’m taking a ridiculous, whirlwind trip to IPB Manor this weekend. I’m throwing caution to the wind, hoping into the car, and driving six hours, basically so that I can sit on the couch tomorrow with the Ookies. (You’re so jealous!) I will definitely arrive in time for the hockey game, but there is a Devils game on at the same time, and I’m quite sure that the Ookie’s desire to watch the Devils pound the Flyers will far outweigh my desire to watch the Sabres, um, do their very best, against the Senators. I know they have an extensive tivo system in place there at IPB Manor, but I’ll let you in on a little secret about me: of all the things in the world, the thing I find perhaps the most annoying, is watching a tivoed loss. I get unreasonably angry if I carefully avoid the internet and the radio and all of the places where I could pick up the score, and then, after all of that extra effort, I have to watch a loss. Plus, I believe strongly that if I don’t watch in an effort to shield myself from a loss, then the Sabres are going to win in an effort to prove I made a terrible mistake. (They love to prove me wrong.) So, I might just watch the Devils game and let the chips fall where they may with the Sabres.
I’m sure that at the very least, I’ll manage to destroy the Devils Game Diary for tonight. Heh.
