1. Okay, so I’m feeling a lot better about the Sabres today than I was yesterday. Yes, they blow, but no, I’m not going to let it get me down. I have tickets to the game tonight, and what kind of fan would I be if I showed up all pissy and cranky? I owe it to the Sabres to give them the opportunity to annoy me anew this evening.
3. I assume Heather will be in full “fretful” mode tonight, because her beloved Hank is scratched. I’ll be as supportive as I can while also trying to pretend I don’t know the woman sitting next to me in a Tallinder jersey. (I’m just KIDDING Heather. He’s going to come back better than ever! This is just the kick in the ass he needs!)
4. Max is also a healthy scratch and that makes me feel the opposite of “fretful”.
5. The scratching of Max has led to the playing of “Yellow 19“. I am SUPER happy that Mark Mancari will be on the ice tonight. I’ve always liked that kid.
