We Interrupt This Hiatus To Bring You...

...this:




I didn't realize how much I missed Ryan Miller until I saw him being both awkward and awesome at the same time while giving us a tutorial on how to be a goalie in the NHL. He looked so snazzy in his suit and I enjoyed listening to his thoughtful insight on the game and each team playing. I did feel a little sorry for him that he had to be between Pierre McGuire and Mike Milburry... Pierre and Mike kept shouting back and forth while Ryan was being his typical calm and collected self and Mike kept cutting Ryan off and telling him to agree with him. But other than that...it was such a nice treat to see Ryan being his awesome self again! Even though he and the Sabres haven't really crossed my mind so far during this offseason, he has been missed! Really!

Oh, and apparently there was some crazy hockey game going on in between the intermission reports. Who would've thought...

Okay...going back on hiatus now. Carry on...

Pierre's "I'll take Miller over Milbury!!!" crcked me up beyond belief, as did many little episodes from last night's commentary. Ryan Miller is obviously a saint for putting up with all that so well.

It is SO AWESOME that you got to meet Lindy. As disappointing as the Sabres were in the playoffs, I still love him.

Hahaha yeah that was good...I got a kick out of Ryan being in the middle of those two on live TV. Ryan is such a trooper.

It was AWESOME when I got to meet Lindy...I'll always have a soft spot for Lindaayyy.

Dude, his hair is shooort!

Caroline said...

I know... Personally, I missed when he had his long hair and he had that earthy, Jesus look going on (or as he described it, the herion addict look). But whateves...I guess that's just a ~distant memory~ now.

He never said heroin addict, he said "Alice In Chains member" lawls

Caroline said...

Excuse me sir...but I never forget Ryan's quips.

"That's why I cut my hair - I looked like a heroin addict [at the end of the season]. I looked like I belonged in a grunge band like Alice in Chains."
