Chris Butler Can Soothe My Aching Heart

I took the Dan Paille trade very hard.  I know he spent almost the entire start of the season here in the press box and I know that Lindy seemed to dislike him or dislike playing him or something like.  But I still loved him and I was still devastated when he got traded.

Enter Chris Butler’s interview from last night.

What a wonderful distraction from Danny.  In addition to being a great player, Christopher is an attractive, well -spoken, articulate guy.  We already knew that; I was blown away by his first game here.  He was amazing during it and his postgame interview was 74 different kinds of cute.  He was supposed to be an emergency call-up but he went and blew us all away and now he’s permanent.  I’ve always had a thing for him, but last night I decided to go and make it official.  Christopher Butler, we’re going to try a little experiment in which you’re my new favorite Sabre.  Congratulations.  Best of luck to you.

(An aside:  I checked Wikipedia and while it has his parents’ names and his siblings names and ages, it doesn’t have his middle name.  1.)  Gosh darn it.  2.)  Why am I so fixated on middle names?  It kind of creeps me out.)

(Another aside:  Of course I still like you, Ryan!  We’ll aways have something special, especially since I have a bobblehead of you.  But for now, I’m trying things with Christopher.  He seems more my type.  And he’s quite a bit closer to my age.)

Last night’s first period was one of the best I’ve ever seen the Sabres play.  I was flabbergasted.  It was awesome.  They just came out and started scoring and didn’t stop for twenty minutes.  They weren’t nearly as good in the second and third period, but the first period was so B.A. that I’m willing to forgive them just this once.

I love Matt Ellis.

I love Tyler Myers.

I love the save Ryan Miller made.

I love the chemistry Timmy K and Mike Grier have.

Seriously, who pulls their goalie a minute into a game?  And just for the record, I don’t really think the goalie change jump-started the rest of the players the way they had hoped.

I’m going to miss the first period of the Caps game tonight but after that I’ll be able to watch.  I’m really excited.  We all know how much I love when the Capitals play the Thrashers.

The family I’m selling my soul to babysitting for six hours Saturday night doesn’t have cable.  I won’t be able to watch any hockey.  At all.  It’s going to be awful.  Especially since while I won’t be watching hockey I’ll be having an allergy attack.  I am allergic to cats, and putting the cat in your bedroom while I watch your children does not change that fact.  I’m sorry.

Yikes.

I get that the Sabres were in Nashville last night and that they even won, but good grief. That might be the most boring hockey game ever. (At least since the won they played against Nashville last season.)

This was the secod straight game that made me think the Sabres either wanted to kill my soul or for me to take a nap. At least I was in excellent company at the Phoenix game and therefore didn’t have to play uber close attention for the whole thing. Last night was a complete snoozefest. I don’t even know how I made it through the whole thing.

I am, however, thrilled that it wa a Timmykins-assisted Grier goal that won a shutout for Ryan Miller.

The Sabres record right now is 2-0-1 but I don’t feel as though that’s an indication of how they’ve been playing. Looking at that record would make you think that the Sabres have been really good this season, but their power play sucks and they can’t score. I don’t know. I’m worried for Tuesday night against Detroit.

Speaking of Detroit, the Capitals are never winning another hockey game. Never ever again.

The highlight of last night was during Lindy’s postgame interview when Drew was strangling Pie (I think) in the background. It probably wasn’t as funny as it seemed at the time, but I was really tired so it cracked me up.

Reggie is hurt, and if he’s out for a long period of time that pretty much guarantees that Tyler is in. I still don’t really understand how he got hurt, but whatevs. Get well soon, Reg.

I think the Sabres are going to have to learn how to score goals if they even want to stand a chance against the Red Wings.

What’s All This I’ve Been Hearing About A Condensed Schedule?

October 4, 2009 at 10:48 am | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Andrew Peters, Brooks Laich, Buffalo Sabres, Carey Price, Chris Butler, Losing Sucks, Montreal Canadiens, Other Teams' Back-up Goalies Kind of Suck, Players, Ray Emery, Ryan Miller, Steve Montador, This Irks Me, Thomas Vanek, Tim Connolly, Tim Kennedy, Tyler Myers, Washington Capitals, Winning Is Totally Awesome | 1 Comment

One of the complaints I’ve been hearing a lot lately is about the condensed schedule we’ll be seeing this year due to the Olympics.  Um, the Sabres don’t play again until Thursday.  That’s not condensed.

Last year, the Sabres beat Montreal in the shootout at the home opener. I was there, and it was one of the most fun games I’ve ever been to just because of the excitement and the fact that after a disappointing season, they started off the new year by winning.

This year, the Sabres lost to Montreal in overtime.  It was a pretty fluky goal, and it was just the first game of the season, and the Sabres still got a point, but I’m disappointed.  Ryan Miller seemed positively chipper about the game (oh, how I have missed Ryan Miller post game interviews), and while there were definitely some positives, the fact still remains that after Timmy scored a power play goal they didn’t get any offense going.  (Um, did Thomas Vanek do ANYTHING last night?  At all?)  The grit was definitely there – especially Timmy K, sticking up for hisself!! – but I expected a little more from the offense.  That’s all.  I just don’t want the Sabres to fall into bad habits, like that one they had last year of being the better team on the ice and then losing.  That habit was supremely annoying.

One thing I was really impressed with, however, was Tyler Myers.  And not just because he reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite.  (“Yeah, I had fun.  God.“)  He was playing in all sorts of situations and I didn’t see him making any glaring mistakes.  I thought he played really well for a 19 year-old making his NHL debut.  There’s no way Lindy can send him back to juniors.

It hurt me that Sir Christopher was in front of Miller for Montreal’s game winning goal.

It seemed to me like Steve Montador got a lot of ice time.

Ryan Miller looked pretty good for most of last night.  So did Carey Price.

Petey got all sorts of fighting-related penalties in his debut with the Devils.

Don Cherry cracked me up last night.  Last year he and I didn’t get along very well, but I decided to give him a second chance this season and he hasn’t blown it yet.

I hope Buffalo beats Phoenix on Thursday, especially since I will be skipping Jim and Pam’s wedding to watch them.

BROOKS GOT THE HARD HAT! The Caps game was pretty sweet, what with five players scoring six goals and Alexander being a badass and getting the scoring started straightaway.  The Monster wasn’t all that impressive, in my opinion.  This is what I like to see, Washington.  But let’s not see the brainfart that was the third period again.

Two things from Brooks’s interview:

1.)  Notice GMGM wandering around in the background not once, but TWICE!  First at the 58 second mark, the next time at the 2:10 mark.  You can also see Ted walking around at the 1:22 mark.  I love when people are randomly wandering around in the background during interviews so much.

2.)  Which player is that hanging out with a baby at the 2:02 mark?  I can’t really tell.  Is it Mo the Second?  It slightly resembles him, but I can’t say for certain.

We have to wait until Thursday for the Sabres to take on Phoenix, but on Thursday Philadelphia is playing Washington.  That’s going to be a really good game, especially since Ray Emery decided to make it seem like his time in Russia actually did reform him.

Nine Is A Magic Number

September 30, 2009 at 4:22 pm | Posted in Jose Theodore, Mike Weber, Nathan Gerbe, Tim Kennedy, Tyler Myers | Leave a comment

So. Nathan has been returned to Portland, but Timmy made the cut. As much as I love my little Gerbe Derby, TK was better than him in the preseason. Darcy, I approve.

Mike Weber has also been returned, and while I’m sure he’s pissed as hell, his preseason performance makes me think he needs a bit more time getting ready for the NHL. He bugged me.

As I’m writing this Tyler hasn’t been sent back to juniors yet, and I think this is a good thing. I’m not saying he’s ready for full-time NHL duties yet, but he at least needs those nine days to see what he has to do improve on. With Toni and Drew hurt, the least we can do is give him a chance.

Supposedly Jose is starting tomorrow night in Boston. This really angers me. Varly for starter!!!

A Post Previewing the 2009-2010 Buffalo Sabres

September 26, 2009 at 12:00 pm | Posted in Buffalo Sabres, Chris Butler, Dan Paille, Derek Roy, Frostee Does Predictions!, Henrik Tallinder, Jason Pominville, Jochen Hecht, Mike Grier, Nathan Gerbe, Patrick Kaleta, Paul Gaustad, Players, Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek, Thought-provoking Stuff, Tim Connolly, Tim Connolly must be made of toothpicks and chewing gum, Tim Kennedy | Leave a comment

So. The time has come to prepare a post previewing the Sabres. Where to begin? The Sabres were a mess last season, to be perfectly honest. Playoffs two years in a row, then no playoffs two years in a row, then they beat the Red Wings and the Caps in the preseason. Yes, I know we lost Drury and Briere, but seriously, dudes? Get over it. They weren’t the only players on this team.

The thing with these Sabres is that I can never decide if any of them have individual talents, or games like that 10-2 win over Edmonton are just a complete fluke. Yes, Thomas Vanek is good at putting the puck in the net. Yes, Tim Connolly is fabulous when he’s not lying in a hospital bed in a full body cast. Ryan Miller is frustratingly inconsistent, but when he’s on, good grief, is he on. Patrick Kaleta isn’t half-bad at throwing hits. Sir Christopher has a bright future ahead of him.

But I’m not sure if these Sabres are good enough to take the next step. Yes, if Gomez hadn’t taken out Miller we probably would have made the playoffs. But after seeing how the other teams played in the postseason, there’s an excellent chance that the Sabres would have been slaughtered in the first round. It would have painful, and it would have been ugly.

Darcy promised big changes this summer, so he let my Caveman go and signed Steve Montador in his place, and he brought back Mike Grier. Woo. Way to go, Darcy. Grier will (hopefully) be able to keep the whiny brats on this team in line, but that’s about it. He also signed about 27 enforcers and “gritty” players, so, you know, watch out, league. (I actually have a theory that Darcy watched Slapshot one too many times before free agency started and he wanted to be like the Chiefs and just beat up every team. If it’s old time hockey we’re going to be putting up with, I at least want a Killer.)

One thing Darcy didn’t do that we were all expecting was dump some of our dead weight. Yes, Max is gone, but we still have Hank and Jochen. Man, did those two frustrate me last season.

You know who else frustrated me? Jason Pominville. Jason effing Pominville. He was all cute and adorable and point-producing two years ago and then last season he completely sucked. It was awful.

Thomas Vanek was on track for fifty goals last season (remember when I was all freaked out that he would score more goals than Alex? Heh.) and then he broke his jaw. He’s definitely our best goal-scorer and I’d appreciate it if he could keep that up this year. I’m also counting on Derek Roy to be our best point-producer. Come on, Royzie. Do it for Kyle.

I’d really like some of the Portland kids to get a chance up here, but I’m not sure if that’ll happen or not since we don’t exactly have loads of roster space to give away. Gerbe and Kennedy might be ready to make the jump, but it really depends on who plays well in training camp and who else undergoes surgery right before the start of the season. Adam Mair.

Another concern is the Olympic Break. Yes, it will give some of our guys a chance to rest up, but not Ryan Miller. It became rather apparent two seasons ago that our fragile little goalie can’t handle playing a long season. The Olympics are kind of intense, and they’re going to exhaust him if he ends up being named the starting goalie.

I’m not going to make any predictions about this team, because I honestly don’t know where they’ll end up in the conference. What I do know is that they really are quite similar to the team we saw last year, and that team didn’t do a whole heck of a lot. Out of the playoffs is out of the playoffs, no matter what place you’re in.

Just a few personal letters to some of the players:

Dear Paul,

You just keep doing what you’re doing.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Timmy,

Don’t break.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Jason,

Come back.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Jochen,

We gave you that contract extension because we believed in you, but you were kind of awful last season. Let’s just put the past in the past and move on. You can play better than you did. I believe in you.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Mike,

Keep the little bastards in line.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Sir Christopher,

I decided to make you my project this year, which means I love you even more and pay extra special attention to you. Not that there’s any pressure, I promise. I thought you were chivalrous and great player last year, and with even more time to grow and develop, you’ll get even better. Good luck, my young knight. May the force be with you.

With Love,

Frostee

Dear Danny,

Don’t forget your toothbrush on the road trips, sweetie!

With Love,

Frostee

Thoughts From Puck Drop (Which I Attended For About 30 Minutes)

September 12, 2009 at 2:21 pm | Posted in Buffalo Sabres, Nathan Gerbe, Tim Kennedy | 2 Comments

I watched part of the rookie scrimmage. The white team was much better than the blue team.

Tim Kennedy still looks like he’s about ten years old.

Nathan Gerbe still has that dumb little soulpatch.

Monday Ramblings

  • The concert last night was great.  I liked three out of the five bands opening, which I figure is pretty good.  We missed most of The Common Kings because we were chilling with Jeff Czum at the merch table.  (Apparently after my friend took a picture with him, she told him she loved him.  I pointed out to her that he must have thought I was hotter, though, because he actually came out from behind the table and threw his arm around me and pulled me close for our picture.  She told me to go screw myself, and I told her that by Tuesday Jeff can be all hers again.  She realized that was true and dropped it.)  CIWWAF played all my favorite songs, so, you know, life is good.
  • I don’t really have any Sabres news to report other than Timmykins getting sent back down.  Poor Timmykins!  I’m kind of surprised; I thought this one would last longer.  He had looked pretty good Saturday night.  Oh well, maybe this means one of the boys will be coming back!
  • Poor Jay McKee.  I really hope they don’t have to chop off his finger.  (Dear Jay,   This is what you get for leaving Buffalo!  With Love, Frostee)
  • Before I left last night, I teased my mom telling her how she was probably going to just sit around watching the Capitals game without me.  Well, apparently she did.  (I was rather amused by this)  I was helping her put groceries away a minute ago when suddenly she asked me, “Do you know how big Ovechkin is?”  Frostee:  “6’2, 220 pounds.”  Frostee’s Mom:  “Yeah!!  I didn’t realize how big he was until one of the announcers said how his son wanted to meet him and when Alex hugged him, he engulfed him because he was so big.”  Frostee: (whining) “I wanna meet Alex!!!   PLEEEAAAASSSSEEEE!!!!  Get me in to meet Alex!!  I really really really wanna!!!!!!”  Frostee’s Mom:  “How am I supposed to get you in to meet him?  I don’t announce for the Capitals.”  Frostee:  “I don’t knooooowwwwww.  Just do something.”  
  • So, I half-jokingly had been saying that today after I got my shot (it’s my last Gardasil and those always hurt like hell and therefore make me slighty…er…cranky) I was going to make my mom drive me downtown to keep me from getting annoying.  Because is it just me, or does it seem like EVERY SINGLE TIME a Caps player has a funny story about something that happened with the team, they were always “on a road trip in Buffalo”?  I was going to stake out all the hot spots and when he finally showed up (because I trust that Fate would send him walking right by me) I would ever so politely ask for a photograph.  I wouldn’t even ask for an autograph on my jersey unless he had a minute to spare.  Just a quick little picture.  I can’t do that now, however, because my uncle decided to come in for my great-aunt’s funeral today and they’re all coming for dinner.  Blast!  
  • Speaking of great-aunts and funerals, fortunately unfortunately for you, I have to go up north for it tomorrow so you’ll only get a short post from me.  I’m sure you’re crushed that you won’t have to deal with approximately sixty, “OMG OMG OMG IDK WHAT TO WEAR OR WHAT TO DO WITH MY HAIR OR HOW TO STAND THERE OMG OMG OMG WHAT IF HE THINKS I’M A LOSERRR?” posts tomorrow, just one.  We have to go all the way up to North Tonawanda for the funeral (but it was kind of a blessing that she passed, because she was in her nineties and was totally batshit crazy kind of confused in her later years.  and I haven’t even seen her since I was eight), and then we’re just chilling at my grandparents’ until the game.
  • At Town Ballroom last night when they were showing the upcoming shows, it kept advertising “Ryan Miller’s Catwalk for Charity.”  I wasn’t quite sure why they did that, because 95% of the people there won’t even be old enough to get in.
  • Good grief, Bills.  At least that’s over.

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.

What Would I Do If I Met the Sabres (and Other Hockey Players Across the League)?

October 2, 2008 at 4:42 pm | Posted in Alex Ovechkin, Andrew Peters, Evgeni Malkin, Jason Pominville, Maxim Afinogenov, Mike Weber, Nathan Gerbe, Patrick Kaleta, Patrick Kane, Ryan Miller, Sidney Crosby, Tim Kennedy, Tyler Myers | 2 Comments

First of all, I would just like to say that The Glass Passenger is the BEST album I have ever heard, bar none. Give ARM a hand! (Hehe.  Aren’t I so witty?)  It’s incredible, Andrew McMahon at his best.  Those $6 for two day shipping were $6 well spent.

I mentioned once before that I have never met a real hockey player.  I was discussing this with Corinne the other day after she had said that she was too shy when she met Petey to tell him that: a) my dad and his brother are BFFs, and b) Odd Jobs is her favorite Youtube video ever.  This got us going, and we then had a few laughs when we came up with all the random, stupid things I would do if I met certain hockey players.  Below are the things I would most likely do or say if I ever ran into one.*

Nathan Gerbe

The first thing I would say to him is “Hey, thanks for being my Facebook friend!  I’m the one with the toothbrush.”  Then I would tell him that even though my dad went to Boston University, I still think he totally rocks.  

The whole time I would be slouching over so the poor dear doesn’t realize that I am only half an inch shorter than him.

Tyler Myers

I would also thank Tyler for being my Facebook friend (did I tell you?  He accepted!) and tell him that I was the one with the toothbrush.  Then I would tell him how cool he was for not changing his security settings so that I couldn’t see his profile.  It’s not like I’m going to write creepy things on his wall.  It’s just interesting seeing all his pictures.

Sidney Crosby

I would just give him a hug and tell him that even though Ovie is my favorite, I would always have a soft spot for him.  Then I would tell him that there are a lot of guys at my school who are Sidney Crosby fan boys.

Alex Ovechkin

I would probably faint (I am infamous for fainting.  I’ve done it in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in church and in a hottub).  Then I would tell him that his initials meant “I love” in Latin.  Then I would attempt to make some witty comment about the Capitals being my second favorite team, but since I would be in the presence of a GOD, I would probably just do something stupid.

Andrew Peters

I would tell Petey how his brother knew my dad and then I would let him know  that I thought Odd Jobs was hilarious.  After that I would tell him that my grandma thinks he is “stunning.”

Mike Weber

I would tell Mike that I also believe in Peanut Heaven.

Jason Pominville

I would tell him that not only is he the cuddliest Sabre on the team, he also has AWESOME taste in music (while I refuse to listen to Russian techno-pop, I’ll definitely listen to French pop.)

Then I would ask him why the hell the Green Bay Packers were his favorite team growing up, since he was up in Quebec and was a hockey player and everything.

Patrick Kane

I’ll try to be all funny about it and say, “Haha, it’s the most random thing, my grandma keeps telling me she thinks we should get married.  Isn’t that so cute?”

And then I would anxiously wait for his response.

Evgeni Malkin

I would let Geno know that I, too, enjoy eating spaghetti.

Ryan Miller

I would tell Crunchy that I LOVE his blogs and that I would DIE without Breakaway Berrier (and I would try to refrain from using my line, “Ryan Miller tastes delicious”), and then I would just stand there basking in the glow of Frostee’s Sabres Boyfriend and try not to stare at his guns.

Max Afinogenov

I would say, “You suck, you know?” and then I would run away before the Russian Mafia could get a good luck at my face.

Patrick Kaleta

I would say that even though he was a St. Franny’s boy, and therefore I am supposed to dislike him very much, I totally love him.  Then I would tell him that I couldn’t agree more that the Bills are being totally awesome.

 

 

*It goes without saying that all these things would happen after I soiled my pants and squealed like an angry hamster.

 

P.S. Roberto Luongo got named the captain in Vancouver.  How can this be?  Goalies aren’t allowed to be captains.  Didn’t we deal with all this last year with Crunchy?

P.P.S. I’ve gone back to my theory of “the preseason doesn’t count.”  Instead of talking about how much last night’s game SUCKED, my mom and I discussed the debate tonight.  I came to the conclusion that if Palin starts looking really unqualified (by that I mean even more unqualified than she already appears to be), she’ll probably just pull that ol’ gun of hers on Biden.
