This Is Why I'm Hot

Before I get into real hockey stuff... I have a story to tell!

Today it was like a Sabres get together at work today, I swear... First Andrej Sekera came in, then Drew Stafford and Clarke MacArthur came in, and finally Nathan Paetsch stopped in. Anyways, my manager had two tickets to a special pre-screening of the movie The Lovely Bones, and she asked me if I wanted them. She told me that if I got 15 people to sign up for our loyalty card, she'd give me the tickets... So when Stafford and MacArthur came in, I told them the deal and asked if they could help a sister out... and Stafford was like, "Yeah I'll help you out!" We were also talking about what would happen if I gave them free tickets and MacArthur was like, "I don't want to get you fired!" and I was like, "Yeah I'll give you free tickets and then the next time you're going to come in with the whole team and I'll have to give everyone free tickets." So they signed up for the loyalty card (and I got 15 people, so I got the tickets...yay!), and that was that. Then a few minutes later Paetsch came in. A few hours later I was working and I look up and there's some guy frantically waving at me while he's walking out the door...and it was Drew Stafford. Gotta love it.

Anywayssss... I wasn't able to watch the WJC gold medal came tonight, but I have to say how stoked I am for Team USA's upset over Team Canada. Mostly because I'm American, but also because upsets are always fun...being a Buffalonian I'm just always partial to the underdogs. Got me all excited for the Olympics in February... Team USA would definitely be considered the underdogs, but when you have a hot goaltender you never know what can happen. And Team USA definitely has that... Speaking of which, it looks like Ron Wilson wants to ride the one hot goalie during the Games. Wonder which goalie it will be... Gotta love the old school picture of Miller they used in that article. Ahh, simplier days!

Well I hope you enjoyed my story. I'm going to the game tomorrow so I'm pretty excited about that. Right now I'm just enjoying some Late Night and eating a waffle for dinner. Yes, I eat dinner at 1 am and it also happens to be a waffle... I'm classy like that.

Oh no. As soon as I saw the title of your post that frickin song started playing in my head... thanks Caroline! But yes, it is awesome to hear about Ry and his hot self potentially being the sole goalie playing for the Olympics. Let's keep our fingers crossed!! And on a side note: I always love to hear awesome Sabres stories like that it makes me excited too. He he he. =) Did ya get to keep the signup sheet as well?

I'm hot cuz I'm fly, you ain't cuz you not! Haha...I love how that's the song the Sabres play when Miller makes a big save. I'm so eager to see how he does in the Olympics!

Haha nah, I didn't keep the sign up had to be entered in the system now that he is a proud owner of our loyalty card. My co-workers told me I should have kept it though haha. eBay??

Did any of those guys come in with girls? I would not have kept the sign up sheet you should have just asked him for his autograph.

Caroline said...

Yes, a few of the guys were accompanied by some lady friends of theirs. Hah I was just joking about wanting to keep the sign up sheet anyways, autographs aren't really my thing.
