5 Short Things

1.  My lifetime supply of deeply discounted meats and cheeses arrived in the mail today!  Rejoice!

2. I’m sorry this blog has been so lame lately.  It’s not entirely my fault.  I’ve been pretty busy and the Sabres just haven’t been that funny lately.  Be FUNNIER, Sabres!

3. The image of Hank’s dangling, dislocated/broken/comPLETEly-effed-up arm has been haunting me all day.  I don’t know why that gave me such a terrible case of the heebie-jeebies, but it did.  *shiver*  (Also, poor Hank.  And Poor Heather.)

4. We have no healthy defencemen.  To apply for a job as a Sabres defenceman, please call Darcy Regier at, 1-800-HOLY-EFF ext: SCREWED

5. When the teams are evenly matched in their suckitude, I really, really love sloppy hockey.  If the Sabres had won that game last night that would have been one of my favorite games of the season so far.  I’ve always enjoyed watching the Lightning, and I think it’s because their games are always on the verge of spinning totally out of control.   I know that technically the Rangers are a good team and the Lightning are a bad team, but I’ll take Tampa any day over a team like the stodgy old Rangers.

6. Are you getting ready to open your wallets to support the sports-related non-profit of my choosing?  Well, GET READY PEOPLE!  :D

    I just wanted to tell you that I instantly love any blog post that starts out like this:

    You always make me laugh (I don’t keep many Sabres blogs in my Google reader, missy, consider yourself special :P) but that for some reason cracked me up.

    Aww, thanks CC! Any fellow fan of reasonably priced meat is a friend of mine! :D

    Defencemen? You do know that, despite your little anthem tradition, Buffalo is not actually part of Canada, right?

    That was 6 things ;). Just thought you should know.

    Sam, for some reason “defensemen” looked wrong to me when I wrote this post last night, so I just decided to go with the “c”. I can’t explain it, but thanks for noticing! :D

    Susie, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written one of these “X Things” posts and miscounted the number of things. I think this is the first time I haven’t caught it before publishing though. I’m going to leave it. Heh.

    Hee! That sums up the Buffalo defensive situation in a nutshell, doesn’t it?

    Get me Nolan Pratt on the phone!

    (please don’t trade for Schneider, Darcy. I love Teppo but one d-man that old is enough)

    Get Tyler Myers up from Juniors!

    Please make sure not to eat all the meat and cheese in one weekend. And do not come over to my house to steal mine while I am still at work. :)
