As I’m sure you inferred from the title of this post, we got a new TV.  It’s big and beautiful and I am salivating at the thought of watching hockey tonight.  Both of my teams are playing really bad teams, so I’m sure both the Caps and Sabres will lose.  It’s bound to happen at some point.

Everyone’s feeling the love for Ryan Miller (as am I), and rightly so.  The dude’s been on fire lately.  He’s going to be pretty BAMF for Team USA in February.  I’m choosing not to think about what will happen after the Olympics, when he’s too tired to even make it to the crease.  We’ll get there eventually.

(And just for the record, no one believes my theory that Lindy keeps playing Ryan to exhaust him in an attempt to sabotage Team USA.  Yes, I know Lindy doesn’t like backups and trusts Lala about as far as he can throw him, but still.  He’s the coach of Team Canada.  Ryan is the presumed starter for Team USA.  It’s always possible.)

Jason is one of the several Sabres leading the team in scoring.  I like this.  It made me really, really sad last year when he sucked.

Poor, poor Goosie has the flu.  I hope it’s not swine, Paul!  Feel better soon and beware the pig!

Timmy sat out practice with “minor bumps and bruises” (according to The Buffalo News), which means he’ll be out for the next 6-8 weeks with an undisclosed upper-lower body injury.

Derek Roy needs to get on that whole “I haven’t scored a goal yet” thing stat.  Not scoring goals is BAD, Royzie.  You must fix this immediately, or else.

Happy birthday, Drew!  I always thought it was fitting that he’s an almost-Halloween baby, since he’s kinda, well, out there….and reminds me of Halloween…uh…this sounded better in my head.  I apologize.

I have absolutely no intention of watching the game tomorrow night.  I will be trick-or-treating, because anyone who has an awesome costume and passes up on free candy is lame.

I’m afraid to wear my Caps jersey because last time I did, they were in the midst of that awful, painful losing streak.  They’ve won six straight and I don’t want to jinx that, but like I said.  I want to wear it.  Bad.

I wish my stupid Lars t-shirt wasn’t backordered.  The hockey gods seriously do not want me to own this shirt.

I’m really excited for the first game of the Tyler Myers era.  I sincerely hope that his play over the first nine games had nothing to do with him having to impress the coaches and everything to do with how he normally plays.  (Does that sentence even make any sense?)  I don’t want him to be a fluke.  I want to know that he’s actually a really talented player.

I’m writing an article for the school paper on the swine flu and I’m interviewing my dad for it.  Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but after his brief appearance on Channel 2 Monday afternoon, he keeps telling me I have to call public relations to get an interview with him.  I plan on hiding the remote right before the Sabres game starts and blackmailing him into giving me some quotes on how the oink-oink can affect a high school environment.

Go Sabres/Caps!  Woo!
