A few hours into the Buffalosportsbloggercon 2010 I got the idea to do a post where I compare each blogger/blog to a specific Sabre. I thought it would be a cute post, so I started to quietly size everyone up and match them to a player.
Perhaps it was just the warm glow of beer and the company of fun people that made me think that was good idea, because in the harsh light of a somewhat hung over morning, it occurred to me that there is NO WAY I can pull that off. I mean, how can I possible be all, “So-and-so is Tim Connolly. His talent is dazzling, but he’s kind of yucky, and he’s certainly riddled with venereal disease.”? And let’s face it, if I’m honest with myself, TWC is going to wind up being Derek Roy; all flash, no substance, and inevitably lying on the sidewalk on Chippewa Street in my flip-flops, laughing hysterically at my own jokes. The whole post was just a bad idea.
So, I will not be doing that post. Instead I will just say this: Thank you Buffalo bloggers for being so fun, enthusiastic, and all-around foxy. One of the most unexpected and delightful aspects of blogging has been meeting all of you. I’m so proud to be a part of something as kickass as the Sabres blogosphere. As for you guys, there is not a Tim Connolly among you. No, the Sabres blogosphere is all Gooses and Crunchys, across the board.
And while I barely paid any attention to the game last night, I feel comfortable saying that it is NOT our fault that the Sabres lost. The Sabres lost because they are terrible at hockey, especially Ryan Miller. That guy really sucks.
(True [sad] story: In an effort to impress Kevin with my awesome hockey prognosticating skillz I made a bold prediction after the first period. According to my sources [aka, the voices inside my head], the Sabres would go into lock-down mode, and the game would end 2-1. Oops. That might be considered Hockey God taunting.)
