Don’t Black Us Out!

I am so glad that the Sabres came to their senses and made a deal with MSG to broadcast the West coast road trip.  I LOVE late start games, and I would have been HUGELY irked to have missed games against teams we rarely see.  That was a super boneheaded move in the first place by the Sabres, but I’ll give them credit for responding to the fan outcry.

The funny thing is, I think I suspected all along that the problem would be solved in time for me to watch the games on television.  Last week I kept thinking, “I need to remember to get really pissed about the fact that I can’t watch the Sabres next week.   Maybe I’ll give it one more day…”

I’m not kidding.  This is what my to-do list looked like:

1. Organize BOSA fund raiser
2. Practice Bartok
3. Clean bathroom
4. Fly into a frothy rage about the untelevised Sabres games.
5. Call mother
6. Car wash

And then, before I got around to crossing “fly into a frothy rage over untelevised Sabres games” off my to-do list, the Sabres went and fixed the problem.

Procrastination pays off again!

    God, I hate cleaning the bathroom. Both of them.

    The sad thing with me is, I didn’t even know there was a possibility that those games WEREN’T going to be televised. I mean, come on, it’s MSG. They only fuck up once every couple of months with that god-awful dreaded Versus game. Shows how much I know.

    I hate bathroom cleaning, too. Car washing isn’t that bad, but I just hate waiting in the lines at the car wash on the one day each winter that’s good car washing weather.

    What’s up with the Bartok practicing? You’re not taking an audition, are you?

    Oh, hell no. I’m practicing the Concerto for Orchestra and the first quartet.

    I say you don’t let the Sabres off the hook until they solve all your other to-do list problems as well. I’m sure your mother would love to get a call from them, right?

    Gambler, the Sabres would LOVE my mom. Heh. Maybe I’ll have her call THEM.
