1. I’ve had just about enough of this. WHAT is wrong with Goose?! When is he coming back, and where can I send my get-well flowers and the beak warmer I knit for him?
2. I can’t stand to pay too close attention to the standings when the Sabres are being so listless, but last night I took a peek, and I was SHOCKED to discover that if the playoffs started today, the Sabres would be in. What the ?! Am I being too negative around here? I can’t beLIEVE that there are eight teams worse than us in the Eastern Conference. Seriously.
3. After I got back to Buffalo, I swung through Wegmans so that I could pick up some milk for my coffee tomorrow. While I was there, I saw Barnes, of Cellino and Barnes. Then, I had this conversation with the kid who rang up my groceries:
Kate: Hey look. Cellino is over there by the garlic.
Checkout Dude: (looks over) That’s Barnes.
Kate: No, Cellino is the bald one!
Checkout Dude: No, Cellino is the one who had to go away for awhile. Barnes is the bald one.
Kate: Huh. I guess you’re right.
Checkout Dude: Ryan Miller came through my line about an hour ago…
Kate: You’re telling me an hour ago I could have seen Ryan Miller, but all I get now is Cellino?!
Checkout Dude: No, I’m telling you that an hour ago you could have seen Ryan Miller, but all you get now is Barnes.
