How Embarrassing

Well it looks like we've got another candidate for the Worst Game of the Year category for the 2009 NHL Shit Show Awards. How lovely.

I can sit here and say how the Sabres missed a great opportunity to improve their position in the standings and to put a team whose been nipping at their heels away...blah blah blah... but I don't think this game really deserves to be summarized. So I took a picture of myself watching the game to show you guys what I thought of it because I don't really feel like expressing it in words:


You know what they say... A picture says a thousand words.

But I must say that I really want to give Patrick Lalime a kiss on the forehead for being such a precious jewel. I would say the same about Ryan, but he just looked too angry and to be frank, he kind of scares me when he's pissed off. Just imagining about being the receiptor of his "Ryan Miller Death Glare" (you know, the one where his eyebrow is extra wonky and he looks like he's about to whip out a machete and go all medieval on your ass) just sends a very cold shiver down my spine. So I think I'll just leave Ryan to his thoughts while I send Lalime a bouquet of flowers with a note that says, "Nice try, buddy. Keep up the good work."

So while watching my precious Sabres look like they're trying out for the Special Olympics brings me absolutely no pleasure, I do find a lot of enjoyment in watching other team's crash and burn. Last night watching the Pittsburgh Penguins get their asses handed to them by the pathetic Toronto Maple Leafs was a treat (it even got their coach canned!). But not to be outdone by the Rangers who gave up a shorthanded goal to the Philadelphia Flyers while they were on a 5-on-3 power play. It just warms my heart :')

So while tonight's "game" is something that I'm currently trying to erase from my memory, thinking about other team's who are close to us in the standings failing helps ease away the pain and embarrassment that many Sabres fans felt tonight. Oh, and the Panthers losing helps too. Enjoy your day off tomorrow, everyone! I owe you one, George & Abe.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one who gets sick enjoyment out of this. I laugh at others misfortunes and realize they're probably doing the same thing to us, hence why I don't really feel bad about it.

Hell yeah. The thought of the NHL's golden boy & the rest of the Penguins not making the playoffs gives me the same feeling I get when I see puppies and kittens.

OMG! Poor Ryan... Your right... I couldn't imagine being on the other end of that. Whoo... seriously scary. He has that goalie insanity thing going on. BUT this is why we love our Ryan. He is full of heart and emotion. Like I said in Kim's post... it just dawned on me this maybe why Lindy pulled him. Lindy won't say that publicly though.

I was reading some articles last week that back in the day... I'm talking a few decades ago... the coaches wouldn't allow other players to even talk to the goalies. Can you imagine being that much of an outcast on your own team but have to be the one they depend on to win games? Geez. I am glad it's not like that now. Imagine the insanity... I read that Patrick Roy used to talk to his goal posts because they were 'his friends'... LMAO! Just thought I would share.

I think those are the greatest words ever spoken or written, however you want to view it.

Yeah...goalies are interesting people. I think it's more of the players wanting their goalie to be focused and in their own little world rather than outcasting them... I love the story about Roy talking to his goal posts... it's why I love goalies in the first place. They're all crazy.
