  • Okie dokie, Sabres.  Here’s the deal:  You’re about to play Boston, the best team in the league.  Yes.  I know.  It’s absolutely terrifying (as Joe would say, “Okay people, take a deep breath. [takes deep breath]  It’s the Bruins.”), but I have faith in you.  I really do.  Yes, the Leafs team you beat isn’t exactly occupying the number two seed right now, but you got a win to start off 2009 and that’s what counts.  If you beat Boston, you might even be on track for getting three wins in a row!  (We at TFF Headquarters have decided that if the Sabres lose to the Senators on Tuesday, we will stop watching.  Because the Senators are outrageously bad.  They have fallen apart, and if the Sabres can’t beat them then something is wrong)  And you know what the best part is, Sabres?  If you beat Boston today, you leap over the Penguins in the standings.  Yes, the Penguins.  As in Sidney and Evgeni’s team  (although I saw a picture on Facebook of Evgeni in a Red Wings hat, so I’m wondering if he’ll be the next Pen to jump ship for the Wings?).  Now, I realize that if for some reason the season was to end with the Penguins occupying a seed below eight, the league would probably make some rule that the playoffs are ACTUALLY supposed to be seeds one through seven and then the tenth seed, but still.  Being ahead of them, at least for now, would be spectacular.  Sabres, you have no idea how warm and fuzzy that would make me.  Warm fuzzies to you, boys, if you beat the Bruins today!
  • Apparently Pie is okay.  Buffalo, you can breathe a collective sigh of relief.
  • My poor Nathan got sent back to Portland!  Poor, sweet little munchkin.pc300355
  • UB’s on an hour before the Sabres.  Just for the record, we could have gone to the game.  I wanted to go, but my mother decided that going without my dad wouldn’t be nice.   Hmph.  You know, if we had actually gone to the game, I wouldn’t have had to worry about which game to watch.  Now we’re going to have to flip back and forth.  
  • If we had gone to the game, I  would have been able to buy that bitching hat from Alex’s clothing line.  Just sayin’.
  • I can’t watch the Capitals tonight either because we’re having our neighbors over, but I may or may not put on my jersey just to watch the puck drop.  I know it’s just the Rangers, but they’ll be out for blood and my boys need all the help they can get!

#50:  It’s Cari’s story I linked you to in yesterday’s post.  I just think it’s so incredibly cool of Alex to do that.  It’s really thoughtful of him to give something like to a stranger.

#51:  This video.
