The Sound of Sucking

I just realized something!

If this season the Sabres are the Sound of Music, then this is the part of the story where Maria is still annoying everyone in the abby and being a total failure as a nun.

Darcy hasn’t even kicked the Sabres out of the abby yet.  The Sabres are still up in the Alps twirling around and singing about how the rinks are alive with the sound of sucking, totally oblivious to the adventures they have ahead.  This season may seem like it’s going to be about a bunch of annoying abby politics annoying System meltdowns, but we haven’t even got to the part where Maria sews the Sabres new play-clothes and teaches them how to sing.  If nothing else, we have Craig Rivet wearing lederhosen made out of floral curtains to look forward to this season.

The 2010/11 Sabres Season Motto:  When in doubt (which, as it turns out, might be every minute of every game), consult The Sound of Music.

    I can get behind this kind of thinking. But if we take this comparison to its logical conclusion, it means the Sabres leave in the end. And I CAN’T get behind that kind of thinking.

    No, no, don’t be ridiculous Phil! The logical conclusion is the Sabres winning the Stanley Cup and then walking it out of HSBC Arena and over the hills of Chippewa street.

    Hmm, that IS some thinking I can get behind for sure.

    I also do not like this comparison… The most exciting parts are right at the end when the family is just about to escape from the music festival. Know what that makes us, the people watching? NAZIS!

    p.s. Who will sing Maria’s high descant part in the Little Goatherd song?
