Whoa. Trade Deadline Day was intense. So were the last few Sabres games.
I’m exhausted and I’m ready to move on. The Soupy Crisis is over.
Here’s my new plan:
1. I’m going to enjoy the rest of the season. The back-to-back losses to the Rangers and the Flyers, combined with the city-wide Soupy hysteria threw my hockey chi all out of whack. I need to get my priorities straight. Stressing about making the playoffs = low priority. Laughing at the fact that we have a new guy named “Big Bear”= high priority.
2. Stop looking at the standings. For a few weeks I was obsessively calculating what had to happen in order for the Sabres to improve in the standings. It was making me surly. I mean, it’s one thing to get my undies in a twist when the Sabres lose, but it’s quite another to get them twisted when the Islanders win. Giving a shit about the Islanders is no way to live. (No offense, Margee)
3. That’s it. That’s my plan. What do you think?
