Ryan Miller: Blogging Extraordinaire Part II

Due to some viola related obligations I will not be watching much hockey over the next few days. Not watching hockey makes blogging about hockey somewhat difficult. Because I’m lazy and feeling uncreative today, I would like to redirect your attention to the blogging stylings of Mr. Crunchy Miller. (It’s possible that Ryan’s blog is Not Safe For Work. It’s on the Maxim website, which, in addition to housing Crunchy’s blog, also houses many pictures of barely concealed boobs. I’m sure you’ve got no beef with boobs, but your employer might, so tread carefully.)

The Highlights

On being at Madison Square Garden for G3 of the Pens/Rangers series:

We had a very nice view of a devastating game for the Rangers.

Ha! Brutal and awesome. Crunchy at his finest. I am choosing to read this as, “Katebits, I hate the Rangers as much as you. Probably more.” I’m sure we can all agree that any view of Rangers devastation is “nice”. Heh.

On the real purpose of his visit to NYC:

So now on to the reason I was in NYC… goalie equipment!!! (key scary orchestra music and lighting – camera zooms in quickly on petrified faces of hockey fans – hold for dramatic effect) It should sound so much more ominous than just ”Goalie equipment.” I think it needs a tough or scary name since it is always the villain in the story.

I love this. First of all, it’s downright silly in tone. Second of all, he uses the mental image of an orchestra to make his point. That’s a shout-out, right? Right?

In closing, this is what we’ve learned:

1. Crunchy is awesome. (We knew this already.)
2. Crunchy is funny. (Huh. Go figure.)
3. Crunchy is a legitimately good blogger. (STUNNING REVELATION)

    Of course Crunchy was using the orchestra reference as a thinly veiled shout-out to you. Who else is a Sabres fan in an orchestra with a blog?

    I keep forgetting he has a blog. It’s a definite shout out. He remembers you and the good times you shared while performing together onstage. It must have been magical.

    It’s total proof he reads your blog!

    I love the fact that the title of his blog is a Rolling Stones song. What a nutball. I love him so.

    There REALLY can’t be that many of us. Actually, there are a ton of Sabres fans in my orchestra, but as far as I know, I’m the only one with a Sabres blog. :D

    And also, a Tina Turner song. I wonder which one he was going with.

    I was shocked to see a silly side to Crunchy. He’s always so stiff & professional, I never saw a comical post coming from him. That was great!

    I’m sure that was a coded “shout-out” to you, Katebits. He loves your brutal honesty.

    I literally laughed out loud when I read Crunchy’s lastest blog – I knew he had a great sense of humor under all that intense focus. He seems like that guy that is pretty quiet and studious in school but suddenly cracks an amazing one-liner and everyone’s like “Where did that come from?”

    You have GOT to read the new blog he wrote; more questions; and how he admits that he autographs boobs on many occasions. Oh, Ryan, you pimp, you.
