Dear Sabres,

I would like to thank you for being so good at hockey lately.   It’s been a real treat to watch you play.

I know that you can’t win every game, and this may sound selfish, but I have a request.  Could you pleeeease beat the Senators tonight?  All season we’ve been labeling these games “statement games”.  After each win we say stuff like, “The Sabres took another big step towards separating themselves from the teams of the last few seasons.”  I think that beating the Senators, in Ottawa, is another one of these important steps.  I don’t know why, but the Senators ALWAYS seems to thwart you.

(The Hockey Gods have taken Jason Spezza out of the equation.  This should help….but beWARE of taking the Senators lightly.  That NEVER WORKS.)

You can do it!  BEAT THEM.

And Sabres, if you don’t want to do it for me, do it for one of these fine Sabres blog, new to the TWC blogroll:

Black and Blue and Gold– Written by the frequently hilarious, and presumably foxy Phil.

Letters to the NHL– Kathleen is sassy and brassy and she writes the NHL lots of letters.  She tells it like it is.

Queen City Sabres–  You probably already know about this one- it’s Anne’s (of Sabretooth’s House) new blog.  Anne is TOP EFFING NOTCH.  You know it, I know, and hell, the Sabres themselves probably know it.  Also, if you get sick of the Sabres, Anne writes a lot about the L.A. Kings, which I personally enjoy because they’re my new NHL loves.

Sick Jersey Bro–  If you wear a retarded jersey to the HSBC arena, these guys will nail you for it.  They’ll nail you hard.  And the rest of us will laugh.

Ten Minute Misconduct– She makes you laugh on twitter, now she’ll make you laugh blog-style.

The Coldffalo Train– Shelby and Tamara have joined forces, and as a result the blogosphere, nay, the WORLD, is a better place.

So, dear Sabres, I think I have provided enough motivation.  Please, beat the Senators.  Shake that monkey off your back.  And tomorrow, we shall rejoice!

With love,


PS- I hope it won’t confuse you, but I removed a few blogs from the blogroll.  The very stringent new standards of blogrollership are “You must have posted at least once since training camp started.”  But fear not, dear Sabres, I have kept all these blogs in my Google reader, so if they come back to life, I’ll know it, and they’ll be right back on the blogroll.

PPS: Please welcome Joe From NYC to the blogroll!   Joe’s blog is actually the original inspiration for this post.  For weeks I’ve been thinking “gotta add Joe to the blogroll,” and then I temporarily forgot him because I’m a num-num.  I guess I like to take Joe and his fantabulous Sabres/Bills stylingz for granted.  Sorry, Joe.

    Also, if any of y’all want to be on the blogroll and you’re not already, give me a holler.

    Dang it! I swear that the only reason I even thought of doing a blogroll refresher is because of your blog, Joe! Then, when I got into it I realized that there were a TON of blogs I needed to add and somehow you slipped through the cracks! I suck, and YOU ROCK! Consider yourself ADDED.

    Every time you update your blog roll it makes me think, “Man, I REALLY need to update mine. I’ll do that soon.” Somehow I haven’t gotten around to it.

    Thanks so much! I’ll add you too, so the dozens and dozens can surf over to your site

    I think the only team taking the Senators lightly… stopped doing it the last time they played the Sens (so says this Leafs fan, yes).

    Oh hey, I should also point out: Do you want Brian Campbell back? If so… umm… can the Sabres take all of his salary so that the Blackhawks don’t have as BIG of a salary cap issue? (I’m also a Blackhawks fan *wry*)

    Someone feed Ryan Miller please. If he gets any skinnier, he won’t be able to hold up his sticks. (6’2″, 175 lbs is an improvement over the 166 he was a few seasons ago, but still! ;) )

    I feel as though I’ve finally made it in the Sabres blogosphere :D

    Just gotta up the hilarious quotient…I’ve been drier than Bill Nighy in Shaun of the Dead lately heh
