Preseason Is Underway

So my drawing teacher decided not to show up to class today, so it gives me a perfect chance to update... I also had to go to the camera store and buy film because I was sold the wrong film the last time and my pictures didn't develop right. I'm still kind of pissed off because I drove on 20A all the way out to the boonies to get some great shots of all the windmills in the cornfields...I was excited to see how the pictures turned out. Oh well...

Anyways, I've missed the last two preseason games due to a wedding I went to and work. But from talking to people and reading recaps, it sounds like some players were really impressive but our wins had a lot to do with our goalies really stepping up and keeping the team in the game. It's great to hear that our goalies seem to be sharp, I just hope the Sabres don't fall into that habit again where they don't show up for a good portion of the game and just rely on our goalies to make the saves until they finally wake up... but it's just preseason so I'm going to reserve judgement. A win is a win...even in preseason, right?

The boys are going to be strutting their sassy selves down the red carpet tonight before the game, I'm sure that will be amusing...can't wait for the pictures to turn up. Miller is going to be playing the full 60 minutes tonight, so I'm glad that I'll actually be able to watch this one...that is if I find a feed of the game online since the game is going to be blacked out for locals on the NHL Network. Cool. I've also heard through some people that Miller is going to go back to wearing his old mask once the season starts up again. I wonder if he'll whip out his new one on ~special ocassions~. I know I have this one octopus necklace that I've had for years and I never want to part with it! I also see really cool necklaces that I'm tempted to buy and I always say to myself, "I can take turns from my octopus necklace and this one..." but I know I'm fooling myself. I rarely ever go without wearing my octopus necklace.

Buffalo Sports Daily has an article up about Miller and how he's excited for the Olympics. In the beginning of the article it said that he was turning 30 in January, so I wrote saying that he doesn't turn 30 until next July...needless to say my comment has mysteriously disappeared and the article has been fixed...it's a miracle!!

Well, before I depart...I want to post some of my favorite recent top search queries, courtsey of Google Analytics...

"buffalo sabretooth costume"
Hey, if you figure out where to get one...let me know.

"gwen stefani fans in buffalo, ny"
hollaaa

"ryan miller took my sandwich"
You too? Join the club...

I am also amused at how many people search for shirtless/naked pictures of hockey players. And I'm also creeped out at how many people search for player's girlfriends, wives, siblings, children, and places of residence...
