We Are (not) The Champions

Rats. The Sabres lost, and the hockey season is over for Buffalo. After a few attempts last night to acquire tickets on ebay, Robin and I gave up, and we headed out to a bar this afternoon to watch the game. It was incredibly fun, right up until the moment when the stinky Ottawa Senators won in overtime. I really have no right to comment on hockey because I am such a new fan, but HOCKEY ROCKS. I grew up watching baseball, and Lord knows I love my Twins, but hockey is the best sport ever. Robin and I have all sorts of pie-in-the-sky ideas about getting season tickets for next year, that’s how much we love hockey.

The very best thing about cheering for the Sabres is that it has brought all of Buffalo together. I assure you, no matter how sports crazed you think your city is, Buffalo during the hockey playoffs, is more crazed. We are the best hockey fans. Period. (Even if we are a bunch of perennial losers.)

Incidentally, when I first started watching hockey (like three weeks ago), I found the players unattractive as a whole. This has changed. Quite a bit. Now, I understand that hockey players are EFFING HOT. Chris Drury in particular is…..compelling to watch.

Dang. That’s some seriously compelling hockey, right there. I love his playoff beard.

    Is it just me, or does he bear the slightest resemblance to Knut’s daddy? (ha, ha…”bear”)

    You would like Canada then….a lot of the men look like hockey players.

    I’m sorry about Buffalo. Very torn here. I’m originally form Hamilton, ON and we all hate (or used to hate) the TO Maple Leafs. (It’s a national pastime to diss Toronto ;)). So I grew up cheering for Buffalo.

    Unfortunately the DH is from Ottawa.
