1. LAST NIGHT WAS AWESOME. I mean, sure, the Sabres sucked ass for 57.5 minutes of the game, but that only made the win sweeter. It came out of no where. It came out of no where, and it swept us all up, and it was just joy joy joy.
2. Last night one of the sledge hockey gold medalists spent a few minutes sitting near us in the arena. He had his gold medal around his neck and it was absolutely mesmerizing. Before last night I wouldn’t have thought that’d I’d be so interested in looking at a gold medal, but honestly, I could not stop staring at it. Gold medals are very cool and very awe inspiring.
3. I’m not one to get too frothy about the visiting fans from Canada. I’ve really got no beef with them, and I also don’t think it says anything negative about Buffalo fans that so many Canadians get their mitts on tickets (except for maybe that Buffalonians are pretty crafty about finding ways to pay for their seasons. Go us!). But there is one type of visiting fan that I HATE. I freaking LOATHE the visiting fans who stand up during play and turn around to mock the Sabres fans surrounding them. I mean, honestly – that’s just bad manners. (And I’ll also say, I have NO DOUBT that Sabres fans behave poorly in other arenas. All I’m saying is that I would never do the stand-up-and-taunt-the-home-fans WHILE PLAY IS GOING ON. I would not do this because I am not a caveman.)
So, while I wish (most of) the visiting fans no ill will, having them there, and watching them walk out all dejected made that win so much more fun. Ole oleoleole……
4. Alright, I’m really not sure what to do about the car flag now. Last night when it looked like the Sabres were headed to certain, humiliating defeat, Mike Harrington accused me via Twitter of cursing the Sabres with my early car flag installation. I bravely held my ground, but I’ll admit, I was rattled. I did put the flag on a tad early.
But then the Sabres won! In hilarious fashion (my favorite kind of win)!
I feel like the Hockey Gods sent me some seriously mixed messages last night, and I’m totally confused. Did the Sabres miraculously win in spite of the car flag, or, did the car flag actually propel them to hilarious victory?
I just want to do the right thing here, and then I want to stick to The System.
I need your help.
I’ll do whatever you guys tell me to do.
