Explaining The Situation To The Sabres

Dear Sabres,

Hey there!  I hope you enjoyed your All Star break.  It must have been nice to have a few days off.  You could all rest and spend time with your families and get ready for the road trip this week.

At first, I was kind of pissed that MSG wouldn’t be broadcasting the games.  I realize that RJ wouldn’t be there to do play-by-play, but I’d rather watch with the other teams’ announcers or even Kevin than not being able to watch at all.  You can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when they decided to televise these games.  Woo!

You’ve also probably heard me complaining about midterms this week.  Yes, I know, it’s been very stressful.  That’s why I’m writing this letter.  I have a little favor to ask.  Since both of my exams aren’t until the afternoon (HOW did I end up that lucky?), I’ll be able to watch you and not worry about being cranky and sleep-deprived the next day.  I do, however, need you all to play very well and win.  If I’m going to have to sit through exams after watching you play, you guys better come away with two points each time.  I will not watch you suck out loud and then skip off to the gym with my #2 pencils.  It’s not going to happen, Sabres.  This is a warning.  You better be AWESOME, and not just for me!  Before you start saying how selfish I am, I want to remind you how tight the playoff race is in the Eastern Conference.  These are critical points that you need to cement your position in the top eight.  You can’t just flush these points down the drain like you usually do in these Western Conference games.  

Got it?  Wonderful!  Now I hope you all enjoy your naps and your pre-game meals.  I’ll see you tonight!

With Love,
