So I'm back from my little rendezvous in NYC, which was a lot of fun. I had a great time and it was nice to get a little break from my normal, every day life and just have a little getaway with my cousins. It came from the expense of missing THREE Sabres games in a row. Three whole games. I really can't remember the last time I missed three games in a row. Due to work and other commitments, I have missed a game here and there, and most of the times I watch it on DVR, or I just don't get around to it. But three games? In a row? Preposterous.
Fortunately, my parents and my younger brother were sending me text updates for all the games so at least I was "in the know". It was sort of frustrating though when my dad would text me things like, "Rivet and Gaustad are both injured." or, "Miller is playing SPECTACULAR!" and I wasn't there to see all of the buzz. But I can't complain too much, because I was having a great time in NYC while all this was happening, so I guess some sacrifices had to be made.
I also saw a Sabres fan in SoHo (not the bar on Chippewa, the neighborhood in downtown Manhatten), while the Sabres were taking on the Flyers. He was wearing a New Era Sabres cap and I shouted, "Go Sabres!" to him and gave him a high five...it was pretty awesome.
So now that I'm home I'm trying to get caught up on all the buzz that I missed when I was gone... apparently we're not worthy of Ryan Miller, Tiger Woods lately has a problem with his driving (but not his putting, a-thank you...), and a couple decided to crash a party at the White House... am I missing anything?
Glad the Sabres play tonight so I can get right back on track and watch them again.
