Ryan Miller. Stop It.

I read Ryan’s new blog post.  I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again:  I love his blog.  So much.

And, you know, it’s bad enough reading your favorite Sabre’s blog while he’s hurt, but then he has to go start talking about my favorite player in the NHL.  Ryan, are you TRYING to KILL me?

Now, by this point I’ve just been telling people, “Please, CHILLAX, he loves the sport, it was a bit much, the players on Tampa Bay didn’t do anything about it, get over it.  There are bigger news stories in the hockey world to cover,” but I’m very intrigued by the points Ryan brings up.  He’s totally right; that’s what Don Cherry does and he does it well.  When you really think about it he is a lot like Alex and is just a total ham.  I still maintain that if the hot stick was pre-mediated it was a little excessive, but I love all the rest of Alex’s celebrations and his pure love for the sport.  It’s his love for hockey that first attracted me to him, and he’s not doing it just to rub it in the opposition’s face.  You have to admire an athlete these days who loves his game as much as Alex does.  I would imagine Don Cherry is a lot like that, albeit slightly more xenophobic.  At the end of the day, they seem like two guys who would walk home and go to bed loving hockey.

I wasn’t going to bring up the stick again, but Ryan made a few very nice points.  I figured if he can still talk about it, I certainly can still talk about it.

P.S. to Ryan Miller:  I COMPLETELY agree about the suits.  We always run the fashion police during Coach’s Corner and 99.9% of the time Tim Gunn would NOT approve.

  1. Could you see a Don Cherry themed challenge on Project Runway? Nina Garcia and Michael Kors would be beside themselves during the runway show.

    And Miller’s blog has completely pulled me back in from the ledge of apathy. I’m glad that he can be so candid about what’s going on around the league and within the Sabres.

    No, no… Tim Gunn would disapprove 999.99% of the time. And no, that is not a typo. =]
