Heather and I have two more SabreCasts for your listening pleasure. We recorded two in one sitting on Tuesday night. They are mirror images of each other, with one key difference: The first is titled “It’s All Bad” and the second is titled “It’s All Good.” We’ve long been talking about doing an “all positive” SabreCast, but on the eve of the playoffs (when we recorded these) it was pretty hard to ignore the whole, oopsies-we-missed-the-playoffs issue. We decided to record two podcasts covering the same material, first cranky, and then optimistic. It’s interesting how we were able to switch easily from disgusted to hopeful on the same topic. It seems the line between love and hate is very thin indeed when it comes to the Sabres. Even though we took conflicting tones with identical subject matter, I think both podcasts reflect how I honestly feel.
SabreCast Episode 3: It’s All Bad
We really went to town on Soupy in this one. When I was editing this I had to laugh at how ferociously Heather and I have turned against Brian Campbell. I certainly can’t speak for her, but a lot of my Soupy-hate is probably just general Sabres-frustration…..but we’re stuck with the guys we still have, so it’s no fun hating them. Heh. Plus, in addition to Soupy being the scapegoat for all of my frustration, he’s also very genuinely ANNOYING. (Soupy so effectively proved our point in game one of the Sharks/Flames series that Heather and I are almost feeling guilty about bagging on him so harshly. Almost.) This podcast is pretty cranky. Listen to this one when you are feeling comically peeved.
SabreCast Episode 4: It’s All Good
This podcast is upbeat. Despite the crappy season, there is plenty of reason to hope. We refer a couple times to Crunchy’s locker clean-out day interview which we both agree was highly fabulous in a “this blows” kind of way. If you want to be filled with love for Crunchy, it’s a must see. Listen to this podcast if you are feeling hopeful.
