It’s Awfully Quiet…

No Sabres have been traded yet.  I didn’t expect Darcy to deal anyone today, but you never know.  At this point, I don’t even know who will be traded.  I honestly can’t see the Sabres trading Timmy but if they can’t lock him down and if there’s a good offer he might be gone.  Max made it quite clear in the paper yesterday that if he’s not going to play he wants to be traded, and I just kind of shook my head when I read that.

Dear Max,

Um, HELLO, no one wants to trade for you.  Darcy tried.  No one wants you wasting roster space.  I’m a bit surprised there isn’t a single team out there who would take you for the “excitement” factor (end to end rushes that NEVER end in a goal!!), but hey, that’s life.  Please, stop sounding like such a victim.

With Love,

Frostee

Yesterday Clare and I got together at Starbucks.  It was a ton of fun.  We talked about hockey and she did not say one single time, “But I don’t care if he sucks!  He’s hot!!!!!!!”  At one point she did say that our good ol’ friend Soupy hasn’t exactly been getting along with his coach.  Heh.  If Chicago trades him I might just die laughing.

Sean Avery is back on re-entry waivers.  Awesome.  I think we should all place bets on how long the new Sean lasts before he gets back to his usual antics.

Don Cherry was bashing Alex.  Whatever.  I usually respect everything he has to say, but this time I kind of had to disagree.  Some people might say that he’s gloating, but I personally think it’s just because he loves the game so much.  

My friend Nicole met Derek Roy yesterday.  Apparently he didn’t act gay, and was just wearing a blue shirt and “slacks.”  I was kind of hoping he would be wearing another one of those lovely sweaters he has.

My other friend Corinne knows a girl who ran into Pkaleta at the mall trying on shoes.  Like, literally ran into him.  I’m pretty sure if I did that I would break something.

All day people kept coming up to me and saying, “Your hair is shorter!”  Yes.  I am aware of that.  I was there when it was cut.

Semin’s game-winner against Boston was totally BA on Saturday but the game yesterday was terrible.  6-2?  Seriously, Washington?  AND Pittsburgh won, so the Sabres are currently out of the playoffs.  It’s Camp Fun and Games for the Sabres fans right now.

Chris Butler Interviews Make Me Happy

February 5, 2009 at 10:10 am | Posted in Buffalo Sabres, Chris Butler, Drew Stafford, Evgeni Malkin, Happy!!, Maxim Afinogenov, Other Teams' Back-up Goalies Kind of Suck, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Ryan Miller, Tampa Bay Lightning, Thomas Vanek, Tim Connolly, Toronto Maple Leafs, Winning Is Totally Awesome | 5 Comments

He sounds so knowledgeable and he talks about hockey and he really seems to know what’s going on and most importantly, he doesn’t say “you know” in between every single word *coughVanekcouch*.  Chris Butler’s interview was one of the MANY perks last night.

  • Thomas Vanek is a badass.  That natural tour du chapeau?  Beautiful.  Thomas seems to have problems scoring on breakaways so seeing him get a goal on a breakaway last night was awesome.  Power play goals leader?  Tied with Jeff Carter?  Woo!  I officially declare his scoring slump to be over.   (Frostee’s Dad seems to be under the impression that Thomas will now overtake Alex for the league lead.  I had QUITE a laugh over that one.)
  • Drew Stafford’s goal was spectacular.  I hadn’t gotten home yet but I saw the replay multiple times.  Wow.  That’s skill right there.  That’ll definitely be considered when it comes time to choose the goal of the year.  His postgame interview was cute when all the reporters started talking at once and he looked around all confused, but then he made some smartass comment that made him sound like all the punks at my high school.  Oh, Drew.  At least we’re making progress on your social skills.
  • Tim Connolly is really good at hockey.  I wish he wasn’t always hurt.  Imagine how good the Sabres would be if he was always healthy?
  • Ryan Miller, ILY.  I realize that you were only faced with 16 shots, but towards the end I started to get a little nervous.  Congrats on the shutout.  I’m wearing my Miller t-shirt, in case you were wondering.
  • Toronto took a shitload of penalties last night.  Good grief, Toronto.
  • Buffalo did not manage to score on all of those shitloads of penalties.  Seriously, Buffalo?  I love you for last night’s game, but a few more power play goals would have made the night even better than it was.
  • I have a massive bruise on my thigh and I can’t move my right shoulder because I landed on it when I flipped over Caitlin, but other than that I’m functioning pretty well today.  This is a pleasant surprise.
  • I find it highly amusing that no one even talks about Max anymore.
  • RJ sounded great last night.  It was cool hearing the other teams’ broadcasts, but I missed Rick. 
  • Harry still sounded like an angry old man during The Whip.
  • What was Robi talking about last night?  He confuses me sometimes.
  • Speaking of Robi, apparently my mother went to school with several of the people in that dental group he sponsors.  

Other notes from last night that are good and bad for the Sabres:

  • Philadelphia lost.  Good.  Buffalo’s starting to catch up to them.  Friday’s game will be huge.
  • Pittsburgh won.  We kept flipping back over to that game and laughing because the Penguins were getting shut out at home.  By Tampa Bay.  Then it was 3-1 and we moaned about how at least Pittsburgh got a goal.  Then we flipped back and they were in overtime.  Then Malkin scored the OT winner with 6 seconds left.  The Penguins may suck, but Tampa Bay sucks harder.  You know who I think should be captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins?  Evgeni Malkin.  Yeah.  I said it.  Even though the Pens are terrible he always scores and assists and last night he really seemed to lift the Penguins on his shoulders and carry them to a win.  He would make a lovely captain, and now that he speaks English we would get tons of interviews along the lines of, “We want win!”  There’s still a cushion between them and the Sabres, but Friday’s game will be huge.
  • I honestly believe the administrators in this school distract are control freaks.  Seriously?  Giving us a conference day on THURSDAY and then making us go to school on Friday is cruel.  They do it three times this year, and it shows that they’re all assholes.  Right now they’re probably at the district office, laughing to themselves and saying, “Hahaha, look at those students, they get to stay home on Thursday and then have to come to school on Friday because we feel like it.  We’re keeping them from having a three-day weekend merely because WE CAN.”
  • My parents decided to send my brother on a long weekend school trip to Quebec over spring break.  I’m a little surprised, as my brother is probably the biggest scatter brain on the planet.  The only good thing about all this is that I now have leverage in my, “Going to D.C. for a few days over spring break and seeing a Capitals game would probably be the coolest thing in the whole wide world” campaign.  Woo.
  • We’re pretty sure tonight is “Don’t have sex before marriage because God will shun you and no one will want to marry you and you’ll probably die” night in religion.  You have no idea how excited we all are for this.

Maxim Afinogenov’s Purpose

January 31, 2009 at 8:36 pm | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Maxim Afinogenov | Leave a comment

Scene:  Frostee and Corinne are sitting in Frostee’s kitchen, chatting.  Frostee was just telling Corinne how Alex had been a BAMF in the game that afternoon, scoring two goals in the third to retake the scoring league and lead the Capitals past the Red Wings.  She brought up All Star Weekend.

Frostee:  Seriously, though, it was an Ovechkin Fan’s weekend.  It was great.  So many amazing interviews.  I was in heaven.  

Corinne:  He’s hilarious.  I love Alex.

Frostee:  And at the practice Saturday morning?  Amazing.  He and Kovalchuk were dancing and laughing and they were all being so funny.  At one point he was taking a shot on Thomas and totally wiped out and just lay on the ice for a minute.  Then when the “Why you quit?” guy was interviewing him Alex goes, “Yeah, someone up there shot me.”

Corinne:  That’s terrible!  He shouldn’t joke like that!  What if someone tries to assassinate him like John Lennon?  [Before hockey, she and I had discussed The Beatles.]

Frostee:  Corinne.  You know if someone tried to kill him the Russian Mafia would be all over that.  The Olympics are next year.  

Corinne:  Afinogenov.

Frostee:  What?

Corinne:  Afinogenov!  Max!  That’s why he’s here!  He’s a spy, isn’t he?  He’s here so that if someone tries to kill one of the Russian players he can take them out!  Max sucks at playing.  He had to be here for another reason.

Frostee:  *falls off chair laughing*

Never Thought I’d See THAT Headline

January 4, 2009 at 10:59 am | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, All Star Game, Andrej Sekera, Chris Clark, Dan Paille, Derek Roy, Donald Brashear, Happy!!, Matt Ellis, Maxim Afinogenov, Washington Capitals, What Is Up With All These Injuries?, Winning Is Totally Awesome, Zdeno Chara | Leave a comment

The headlines in today’s paper (the hockey ones) all basically said how Matt Ellis helped power the Sabres over the first-place Bruins.  Huh.  Never thought I’d see that, and I can’t help but wonder if Matt ever thought that either.

I think it’s great that he had the first three-point game of his career and that he’s been playing so well here in Buffalo these past few games.  I watched the Sabres Show this morning, and he seems like a really nice guy.  Danny never told me he and Matt were childhood friends!   I hope he sticks around for a while, especially since he’s one of the players we have who really seems to want to win.  It’s really great for him to get the chance to play here and I’m glad Lindy decided to keep him instead of Gerbe.  (Don’t get me wrong.  I ADORE Nate.  I just agree that he should get a wee bit more seasoning in Portland)

Apparently Max has a “lower body injury.”  Hmm.  Sure thing, Sabres, sure thing.  I’m not going to question it if it means Max comes out of the lineup.  (Just in case there’s any confusion, like there was at TFF Headquarters yesterday, I’m not glad he got hurt.  I’m not that mean a person that I would wish him ill.  I’m just kind of glad that he might not be able to play)  I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday in the first period when Derek was all, “Okay, I’m going to fight CHARA now!” and then Chara just knocked him over.  Sure, Chara probably shouldn’t have punched him several times like he had, but it was kind of funny to see.  Sorry, D.  

Was Harry Neale off his meds again yesterday?  Good grief.  Poor Reggie gets speared and then he goes, “Well, looks like he’ll be a soprano in the choir now!” or something along those lines.  I’m just glad he’s okay and came back out and played.  That could have been a penalty though…

I agree with Bruce, Dear Readers.  It’s definitely “dumb” that Alex didn’t make the starting lineup, but I don’t agree with Tom Renney that there must be a flaw in the system if he didn’t make it.  Those lame-o Habs and Pens fans rigged the balloting, and I like to think that Alex feels the same way that Thomas Vanek does, and that if he can’t be voted to the lineup the honest way, then it’s okay if he’s not voted at all.  (Dear Tom Renney,   I get that you’re trying to be funny, but next time when they ask you how you plan on defending Alex during a game, I’d appreciate it if you’d refrain from telling reporters that you’d kill him.  That’s not so nice.  With Love, Frostee)

All I saw of the game last night was Chris Clark’s fight (Chris!  You PUNCH Redden, boyfriend, you PUNCH him) and the Caps walking off at the end of the second, so this morning I watched the highlights.  First, Alex’s goal was pretty badass  and now he’s tied with Carter for the league lead like I knew he would be and now he’ll be the leader in goals again so life is good (haha sorry for that run-on).  He was also dropping guys like flies.  Dude, you are a beast.  

Second, Semin, uh, got in a fight in his first game back.  As Joe so eloquently put, he was “playing the bongoes.”  

Dear Donald Brashear,

Please teach Semin how to fight.  The poor boy looks ridiculous out there.

With Love,

Frostee

At least Staal wanted to go with him, unlike a certain Pittsburgh player I could mention from yesterday afternoon. 

P.S.  Last night while we were watching the football game with the friends we had over we were playing Apples to Apples, and when it was my turn to judge and I got “violent” some idiot gave me the card that said “Russia.”  I’m pretty sure it was my brother.  He should know better than that at this point.

If TV Said “You Know” Once More I Was Going To Punch A Hole In The Wall

December 28, 2008 at 11:35 am | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Bills, Derek Roy, Empty Threats, Frostee Loves Way Too Many Guys, Jason Pominville, Maxim Afinogenov, Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby, This Irks Me, Thomas Vanek, Thought-provoking Stuff, Tim Connolly, Tim Connolly must be made of toothpicks and chewing gum, Tim Kennedy, Washington Capitals, Winning Is Totally Awesome | 3 Comments

Good grief!  Every other word was “you know” in Tvan’s post-game interview.  EVERY OTHER WORD.  I was about to go get Little Ryan and throw him at the television.

Why did it take a shootout to beat the Islanders?  Not only are the Islanders craptastically bad, but the Sabres had a two goal lead with four minutes left.  Hell, they had a one goal lead with TWO SECONDS left.  That was not good.  N.G., as my grandfather would say, “smelly” as my great-grandfather would.  It’s a good thing Ryan delivered in the shootout and that Staffy and Al scored those nice goals.

Max had a two-on-one in the third, and he had a FREAKING EMPTY NET, and he passed the puck back to the BLUE LINE.  WHY DOES HE ALWAYS PASS IT TO THE BLUE LINE?!?!?!  WHY?!?!

Timmykins looked pretty good in his debut, especially since it was in his hometown.  I love the vacant expressions he always had on the bench.  They made him look about ten years old.  I was afraid he would have to leave before overtime so he could get home before his curfew!  His interview after the game was also absolutely PRECIOUS, so now I have all these players vying for the number one spot in my heart.  

The look of relief on Pommer’s face when he scored that goal was priceless.  Seeing him shake his fists to praise the hockey gods and then mouthing “finally” was great.  I don’t like it when Pommer is off his game.  It…confuses me.

Derek, did you get in a fight with Cari or something?  Yikes, you were all over the place last night and you kept fanning on shots and missing empty nets and not getting to the face-off circle in time and then putting the team offside when you were trying to get on the bench.  You need to get back to that badass play.

I’m kind of glad the Habs beat the Penguins.  I know that they’re in the same division as the Sabres, but I just don’t really like it when Pittsburgh wins.  You know, the Penguins are still a good hockey team, but they aren’t the invincible monster that plowed through the playoffs last spring.  And all the Pens fans are going to send me angry emails now claiming that they’ve had a ton of injuries and they just need to get everyone healthy again, but have they seen how many injuries the Capitals have had?  The Caps have lost almost 200 man games to injuries and they’re sitting in second place in the conference, fourth in the league, and they don’t even have a great goaltender like the Pens do!  And, not to be gross or anything, but Sid can’t even spit well.  They showed him on the bench and he was trying to spit but all he ended up doing was drooling.  He looked like my cousin’s daughter.

I’m kind of mad that I forgot to DVR “Miracle” last night.  I haven’t seen it since right after it came out, but I watched the end.  And got very teary-eyed, because not only is it still incredibly how the Americans beat the Soviets, but remembering that Herb Brooks passed on choked me up.  Then you throw those plaid pants in the mix, and forget it.

Completely unrelated to hockey, but just an interesting observation on how the Chinese view us:  My family might be getting a Chinese exchange student for ten days in January.  There are several middle schoolers coming in and we sent in an application since we thought it would be really great to host one.  The woman called yesterday to set up an appointment for us to review the kids’ profiles, and when she and my mom were discussing the kids it came up that while most of the families here didn’t care if it’s a boy or a girl (even though the kid would be following my brother, it would have been okay if it was a girl since Ben does, after all, get along with everybody), the Chinese parents almost always specify that they want their children staying with American kids of the same gender.  I can’t help but wonder if that’s because of an American stereotype in China.  I was intrigued by that, and also convinced that taking the kid with us to see “Rent” right after they get here is probably not the best idea.

And apparently the kids have a very, very basic knowledge of English.  Frostee:  “So, like an Alex Ovechkin-level understanding of the language?”  Frostee’s Mom:  “I think they know even less than him.”  So there’s your frame of reference.

Speaking of Alex, since I’m sure you’re all dying to hear what witty anecdote I prepared about him for today, I thought I would direct you back to the video I linked yesterday.  (I forgot to mention this  since I most likely suffer from short term memory loss.  It’s crazy)  I would like you to pay attention near the end of the interview when Alex takes that fantastic hard hat out of his locker stall.  You’ll notice how everything falls, and he gets this adorable, “Oh shit, here it comes,” look on his face.  Dear Readers, that look is so easy for me to read because I get an identical one on my face whenever I go into my closet.  Stuff always rains down on me.  It’s probably hilarious for outsiders to watch.

I have no faith in the Bills being the spoilers today.  And apparently now Tom and Giselle are saying they aren’t engaged, and that story was made up.  What, TMZ making up a story?  NEVER!

I can’t reveal my sources, because I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, but I was talking with someone the other day who said that most players would play through the kind of injury Tim Connolly has and that he’s something that rhymes with “wussy.”  I was kind of surprised hearing it from this particular person, and highly amused.  Timmy, not playing through and injury that most players would handle?  Shocking!

Well, Hey There Tim!

December 27, 2008 at 2:01 pm | Posted in Football, Maxim Afinogenov, Randomness, This Irks Me, Thomas Vanek, Tim Kennedy, What Is Up With All These Injuries? | 1 Comment

TK got called up!!  Is he going to make it in time for tonight’s game?  How awesome would it be if he got to make his debut in Buffalo!!

But if Tim is coming up, who’s getting scratched?  Normally I would call for Afinogenov, but now that he’s on pace for approximately five goals, Lindy’s not going to want to sit that offensive power.  

This doesn’t mean Tvan’s sitting, does it?  Good grief.  The Sabres are kind of screwed without him, even when he’s just skating on one leg.  (Dear Thomas,  GET WELL REALLY SOON.  With Love, Frostee)  Just remember, fans of Buffalo.  It is not the player who fired the shot’s fault.  Thomas is the one that decided to block that shot.  He didn’t have to, but he did.  So just remember that if you ever see the one who took the shot and you happen to have a heavy object in your hand.

In other, non-hockey news, apparently Mr. Douche Tom Brady finally proposed to Giselle.  I think everyone in Buffalo should chip in and get them a really nice present.

That Was Fun (#48)

Just for the record, I’m trying really, really hard to be upset about last night’s game.  It’s kind of hard.

  • The majority of the first period was rather boring.  It was just back and forth, back and forth, with Frostee occasionally shrieking, “ALEX!!  GOOOO!!!!!  SKATE!!!!!”
  • Andrej Sekera is officially in my mother’s doghouse.  She was less than pleased with his performance last night and announced about halfway through the second period, “I don’t think Andrej Sekera is a very good hockey player.”
  • I really don’t like Harry Neale, but I loved him last night for all his, “Alex Ovechkin is spectacular.  Alex Ovechkin is the best player in the league.”
  • Ha.  I LOVE Crunchy’s skull caps.
  • I am very worried for Thomas Vanek.  I mean, first they had to DRAG HIM OFF THE ICE, and then all the sudden he was back and skating on one leg, and then he scored.  Is he becoming the Tiger Woods of hockey?
  • I was kind of looking forward to a Petey/Brashear fight, but I guess that’s not going to happen.
  • My jersey is huge.  I love it, but it is ridiculously large.  I will be able to wear it for the rest of my life.  (Dear Washington Caps,   If you change the logo again, we’re going to have some serious problems.  With Love, Frostee)
  • I really enjoy hearing RJ get all pissy about the guys who do the sirens after goals are scored.  It’s amusing to listen to him talk about how they need to learn to shut the things off when goals are disallowed.
  • Am I the only one who found it incredibly ironic that Max finally scored a goal when he was jumping in the air to try and avoid getting hit?  He’s such a bad player.  
  • Lala looked pretty darn good last night.  It’s too bad the rest of the team sucks.
  • When I went upstairs last night,  I had to put Mini Alex and Little Ryan on opposite sides of the room.  Little Ryan was giving Mini Alex the death glare and I got worried since they’re on a higher shelf and it’s a long fall to the ground.
  • Um, my secret boyfriend is back in the lineup, and I’m assuming he’ll be playing on Tuesday.  Uh-oh.
  • Jason Pominville really needs to step it up.  I feel kind of bad getting mad at him since he’s the nicest, most adorable guy on the team, but this is getting ridiculous.  I really need him to just score a freaking goal.
  • Ditto for Jochen.  He needs to start winning face-offs.
  • The Sabres’ plane is kind of awesome.
  • That goal Mr. Ovechkin scored?  Fabulous.  He just skated right through Tallinder (or Lydman, as Harry Neale likes to call him) and then he fell over and still scored.  Please, enjoy his post-game interview.   I would kill for one of those hardhats.  I would wear it everywhere.
  • Islanders tonight.  Pretty Ricky is back in the lineup and they finally won against the Leafs last night.  The Sabres kind of need a win, since I have absolutely no faith in them winning on Tuesday.

Oh, The FRUSTRATION!

The Sabres WON last night!!  If there is a more inconsistent, frustrating team in hockey, I have yet to meet it.

  • Crunchy must have heard I was thinking about burning my Miller t-shirt, because he came back with a shutout.  I HEART Miller shutouts.  The real kind.  Oh, Ryan.  What would I do without you and your badass saves?
  • Chris Butler looked really good last night.  I was quite impressed.  And not only was he incredibly sweet and polite in his post-game interview (he THANKED Rayzor.  It doesn’t get sweeter than that), he also was quite well-spoken and definitely knew what he was talking about.  I look forward to seeing more of Mr. Butler.
  • Speaking of Chris Butler, last night we rewound to watch that shot of him during the warmup.  Does anyone here not love Petey?  Because, you know, it was kind of HILARIOUS how he just skated by Butler and pushed him into the boards.  He didn’t even look up or anything.  Petey is SUCH a good teammate!
  • I’m pretty sure I saw Pommer mouth “thank you” to one of the equipment guys during the first period.  I know he said he’d be really interested in blogging after his hockey career, but I personally think he should open a manners school.  I’m thinking, “Jason Pominville’s Academy For Impeccable Manners”
  • It was really annoying during the Sabres Show when Maria asked Max if it was true that he spoke six languages.  Max, why do you have to appear like a sweet guy off the ice?  I get that you’re a spy and all, but still, would you please not be so HUMBLE about your knowledge of English?  PLEASE stop being adorable.  I need you to go steal candy from a baby or something so I can properly hate you.  (And I thought it was great when Patty asked what the name of the guy who asked the question was and then looked straight into the camera a la Lala and said, “Well, Chris…”)
  • OMG PATTTYYYYYYY.  WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU?!?!?  I do not care at all if he was just “being Patrick Kaleta.”  That is NO EXCUSE for Gauthier to try to elbow his head into the glass and then knock him down, take off his glove, and sucker-punch him instead.  The worst part is, he should have been ejected from the game but all he got was a roughing penalty.  That’s all the proof we need that the referees have been officiating against Buffalo.  The officiating was incredibly slanted Wednesday night, and it was even worse last night.  Pkaleta is currently unable to SEE, because of a DIRTY, ILLEGAL HIT, and the refs did nothing.  Gauthier was even baring his teeth!  The guy was a freaking ANIMAL.  (Dear Referees,   I get that you’re all whiny little girls who couldn’t take Ryan Miller saying that one of you cussed him out and that you did a slanted job officiating that night, but for the love of bobbleheads, PLEASE just suck it up and get on with your lives.  With Love, Frostee)
  • Petey came really close to scoring, but when Ellis scored he was totally jazzed for him.  He also tried to fight Gauthier, but apparently Gauthier is a wuss and didn’t want to drop the gloves with him.
  • We at TFF Headquarters totally lost it during Lindy Ruff’s press conference when he said how he hadn’t heard “that Neil Diamond song” in a while.  Lindy, we promise to always love you forever and ever.
  • Um, is it just me, or has it been approximately three years since Thomas last scored?

HONK! HONK! HONK!

PAUL GAUSTAD, ILY!!!

Paul Gaustad’s grandfather, you are hilarious and adorable and an awesome grandfather.

Referees, I hope you burn in hell.

Sidney Crosby, I would like you to stick that in your juicebox and suck it.

Ryan Miller, you are an awesome boyfriend and I love you.

Evgeni Malkin, just like my Search Engine Terms say, you are a retard.

Craig Rivet, in the first period when Talbot hit you and you went to the bench, we all kind of thought it looked like you were masturbating.  I’m really sorry, but it’s true.

Bulls, I’m mad at you for making me sit out in the freezing cold for three quarters and then starting to  score right after I leave and then losing.

Charles Dickens, I’m mad at you for writing Great Expectations.

Drew Stafford, I still think you’re kind of scary.

Max, someone must have told you this is a contract year.

Dear Readers, Alex Ovechkin has ONCE AGAIN proven his UNDYING LOVE for me by scoring his goal WHILE I WAS WATCHING.  And while his interview is adorable when he explains how important it was to get Jokey Jose the shutout (I didn’t even know he did shutouts.  He doesn’t really seem like the type), I’m mad that he has his freaking under-armor on.

Pkaleta, my parents made a mean comment about how it actually makes sense that I would find you attractive since I do, after all, “have a thing for Ovechkin,” but I want you to know that that comment, combined with your new reputation, does not make me love you any less.

Thomas Vanek, you need to start scoring again.

Buffalo Sabres, I love you all very, very much.

If This Is What Happens When Max Afinogenov Scores, Then I Don’t Want Him Scoring Anymore (Pros and Cons)

November 8, 2008 at 10:34 am | Posted in Buffalo Sabres, Derek Roy, Drew Stafford, Losing Sucks, Maxim Afinogenov, Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek | Leave a comment

Pro:

The people I was babysitting for last night have never had a babysitter before (the oldest son usually watches the kids), and I had planned on being slightly bitchy and asking for $8 an hour instead of my usual $7 plus change.  The subject of my rates never came up, however, and you can imagine my shock/pleasure when i unfolded the bills I had been handed at the end of the night to find that I got about twice as much as I had been hoping to cheat out of them.

Con:

They didn’t get home until almost midnight, and we all know that I’m basically dead on my feet after about 8:30 on Friday nights.  (*sigh* I remember the good old days, when I was a party animal on Fridays)

Pro: 

It turns out the girls were actually huge Sabres fans (they have signed Miller, Vanek, and Roy jerseys, and a poster with Goose and Mair on it that was also signed by the two guys), and I got to watch the game on a 50 inch high definition television.  It was the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen, and it almost made the below con okay.

Con:

The Sabres lost to Atlanta.

Pro:

Thomas Vanek got a goal, bringing his outrageously badass total up to 12.  Is he the new Ovechkin or something?

Con: 

Only one of his goals counted.  (But in my opinion [and you can trust me, because I secretly want to be a goal-review judge up in the War Room when I grow up], that wasn’t a goal.  Sorry, Tvan)

Pro:

Staffy got scratched.  It’s about time, Darcy!

Con: 

Staffy will probably be playing tonight.  Boo.

Pro:

For no apparent reason (actually, it might have made perfect sense, but I was so tired I don’t even remember the context in which he said it), Ryan Miller said “Ovechkin” during his post game interview last night.  I pommerdoodled at the thought of my one love saying my other love’s name.

Con:

Not only was Crunchy lacking Crunchy Helmet Hair, but he was also working a cut on his nose.  We were not able to figure out how he got it.

Pro:  

Thomas Vanek picked his nose last night, and I plan on using that as ammunition when my mom gets home to prove to her that it’s not just my “disgusting” love that does that.

Pro:

The Sabres obviously paid a little bit of attention to me, and went 2/3 on the power play.

Con:

The Thrashers also went 2/3 on the man-advantage.

Pro:

Derek Roy talking about his penalty in overtime sounded like me when I was five, trying to keep from getting in trouble when I bit my brother.  Derek:  “Well, I had my stick in between his legs and he fell, but I don’t know if I tripped him…”  Frostee, age 5: “Well, I had my teeth on his arm and I closed my mouth, but I didn’t bite him!”

Con:  

Derek Roy taking a penalty in overtime, which led to Atlanta’s winning goal.

Pro:

Orchard Park won last night!

Con:

I wasn’t at the game.

Pro:

I will be home, snug in my pajamas, watching the game by myself tonight.

Con:

Can’t think of any from that one.

Pro:

At least Ottawa lost in regulation, and Montreal lost in the shootout, right?
