I’m Bored

Remember yesterday when I was all, “I love watching the game at work with my coworkers!  I don’t mind when I can’t see the game!  Everything is sunshine and roses, and I LOVE the whole world,”?  Remember that?   Well, that was retarded.  I meant what I said about enjoying the games at work, but yesterday I failed to write about the downside of missing an entire weekend of hockey, which is that I FEEL LIKE THE SABRES HAVEN’T PLAYED IN A MONTH.  POSSIBLY TWO MONTHS. THEY MAY NEVER PLAY AGAIN.

I just checked the NHL schedule to see what my non-Sabres options are tonight.  Colorado/Detroit, and San Jose/LA.  Those….are not appealing options.

I’m bored, cranky and uninspired.  I can’t even think of anything funny to write about Paul Gaustad taking a shot from James Patrick to the chin in practice today.  There is something funny about that, right?  (I mean, considering Goose is okay and all.) I’m way off my game.  I need some hockey to watch.


In comPLETEly unrelated news: I just talked to my mother, and she told me she accidentally left her knitting in a bar last night.  Heh.

    This may be one of the best lines I’ve every read.

    HA! That’s so great about your mother! It used to be a dream of Schnookie’s, Boomer’s and mine to open a knitting sports bar. There’s a TON of people who love sports and who love doing handiwork; there’s definitely an audience out there for it.

    I’m so sorry your cranky and bored! If it helps at all Schnookie and I saw a sign in NYC today that said, “DON’T HONK” and we thought of Goose.

    You could always post your homemade marshmallow recipe!
    (okay, after this, I’ll leave you alone about it, I promise…)

    Oooh, Pookie, that sports bar sounds so fun! And yes, it DOES help to imagine Goose standing, looking perplexed and a little hurt by the “DON’T HONK” sign.

    rmichaels, I’m on it. Expect a marshmallow recipe in the next few days.

    Chaz, it was a remarkably delightful thing to find out about my mom. :D

    Ask your mom which bar it was. I’m happy to go ask around about lost stitching, and I know many of her/my local barkeeps, so I could definitely grease the necessary skids for recovery…

    (Unless it was Buster’s on 28th, which I haven’t been to since she, you, and I were all there together. Knew I should have made that place a regular stop…)

    I would definitely be a patron of the crafty sportsbar were it ever to exist.

    Can we go knit with Lois in a bar next week? If that’s not “Oh For Fun!” I’m not sure what is.

    Sam, I believe the stay sock was recovered from Whitey’s. Courtney, hell YES we can co knit in a bar next week!
