Hello, Dear Readers!
You may or may not have noticed this, but I haven’t written on this blog in, oh, ten million years, give or take a few millennium. I can’t remember a time in the three years I’ve been writing this blog when I’ve thought so little about hockey or blogging. I went on hiatus.
I also went out of town- to Apple Hill. You may remember Apple Hill from such posts as Too Much Nature (that post was written entirely on my cell phone), Charming Pictures of Young People Playing Music in the Barn, The Bat in the Shack Story, and the time it would NOT stop raining. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile you’ve actually read quite a bit about Apple Hill. (Isn’t it weird that I’ve been writing this blog long enough to have written about Apple Hill THREE times already? I think that’s weird. Also kind of cool.)
I decided I didn’t want to pay ANY attention to hockey while I was at Apple Hill, and I think it was a good choice. Instead of paying any attention to the draft, I paid full attention to skit night. Instead of spending my day off catching up on hockey blogs, I spent my day off watching multiple World Cup games with fun and attractive people. Instead of spending even one minute of my time and energy thinking about Darcy Regier, I was happy.
I had a wonderful time at Apple Hill this year. I feel refreshed and invigorated and newly inspired to be as awesome as possible.
So, in the spirit of trying to be as awesome as possible I sat down and said to myself, “Self, free agency starts TOMORROW. What are you going to write about it on your blog? You have to write something, and, for the love of Lindy Ruff, make it awesome.”
Here’s what I came up with: Diddly poo.
I’m still not ready to think seriously about the Sabres. I just don’t care that much about them right now. I almost never think about them, and when I DO think about them all I really feel is a shoulder-shrugging sense of “Well, something will happen eventually….is it really worth thinking about this?”
And honestly, do we really want to think too hard about the likes of Tim Connolly and Drew Stafford right now? No! We do not! It’s beautiful outside! We’re young, and we still have good hair and strong backs. We can spend our time doing almost anything. Gardening, practicing, flirting, painting rooms bright green, drinking and more drinking, cooking, sewing small squares of fabric together! The world is our oyster. This is no time to think about the Sabres. No time at all.
So, let’s just not.
Tomorrow, the Sabres will sign someone It probably won’t be too exciting, but it will be someone. If Darcy trades anyone from the “top six” I’ll eat my hat and I’ll also jump for joy. Let’s just wait and see what happens. If the Sabres want us to write about them more, maybe they should try being sassier. If they can’t be sassier I’m more than willing to make my own sass.
We’ll meet back here tomorrow night and see if we’re feeling any more inspired to discuss the Sabres. If not, we’ll just think of something better to talk about.
Life is short, you know?
