I have started approximately 45,000 posts about the end of the Sabres season. I have a lot to say, but none of it’s very original (fire everyone except Mike Grier, Roy-Z is icky, this is all Lindy’s fault except for the part that is Darcy’s fault, blah blah blah) and it’s all VERY annoying when I see it written out in a post. I have no idea why, but after almost three years of writing about the Sabres, this week, I’ve been struck dumb, or perhaps more accurately, I’ve been struck silent (the “dumb” part happened years ago). I don’t really know what to say, and I don’t feel strongly about any of it, so I’m trying to do keep my mouth shut until I’ve got something interesting to say. Basically, I’m trying not to annoy the interwebs. You’re welcome, interwebs.
You guys may recall that the LAST time I seriously annoyed the interwebs, it was because I WOULD NOT SHUT UP on Twitter about the lack of HD during the Bruins series. A few of you were all, “I KNOW. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. WHAT THE EFF,” but a LOT of you were all, “Shut up, Katebits. We’re trying to enjoy this game and your incessant whining is on our nervies.” So, in an effort not to lose all of my followers, I tried to buck up, but I would like to point out that ultimately, I was proven RIGHT.
The Sabres played three games in standard def, and they lost ALL THREE. If I had a Sabres sweatshirt with that kind of devastating record in the playoffs, I would throw it away. Just saying.
So, I will spare the interwebs my versions of “What what wrong, 09/10” and, “What the Sabres should do next” (for now), but, as God is my witness, I will NEVER quit bitching about how the Sabres and MSG gave their loyal, dedicated, and playoff-starved fans, THREE playoff games in lowly low low def. And I will NEVER stop reminding the world that the Sabres were ultimately punished for treating us this way, with three big fat losses at the hands of the Bruins.
Damn it, I’ll cheer for Roy-Z if I must, but I will never cheer for substandard broadcast feeds. NEVER!
We all have our demons. Apparently mine is standard def.
