Christmas Break

by Anne

I'm not going to go on an official hiatus but something about blogging on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day seems weird, especially when there's no hockey going on. Therefore, until we meet again:

1. Please stop whining about the Crosby goal or not a goal or whatever. It's over, its been decided. Bitching about it further will not take away the goal and will not give the Sabres and Pens another chance to play out OT. Besides, the Pens were just shutout by the Lightning. Yick. Give them the win, they'll need it to keep them warm over Christmas. The NHL is not "out to get" the Buffalo Sabres. For like 2 years the NHL loved us, remember the lovefest that was 2006-2007? Danny Briere was going to cure cancer and Ryan Miller was the second coming, things change, but the NHL is not out to get the Sabres because Sidney Crosby scored a goal. If this had been Tyler Kennedy or Max Talbot, would we still be having this debate? No.

2. Christmas is Thursday!!!!!

3. Jeff Carter has taken the goal scoring lead. I can guarantee you Thomas Vanek does not care. I'm sure he cares that he hasn't been scoring, but I'm sure he doesn't care that he's #2.

4. The Bandits season starts on the 3rd!! Which, unfortunately is also when the International Bowl is. Fortunately they occur at different times of the day.

5. I've already gotten some sweeeet hockey related Christmas gifts, one of which I plan to dedicate an entire post to, post-Christmas day. Let's just say that I can't wait til May.

6. Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Let's just say that I can't wait til May.

    I'm intrigued...

    Merry Christmas, Anne!

  2. The Bandits season starts on the 3rd!

    I wish they televised Lacrosse games sometimes live. I would watch them if it didn't interfere with the Sabres games. Blegh, the sporting world needs to be broadened more on the television so that I can watch all these other cool sports out there.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Merry Christmas Anne!!!!!! And S(h)ara, too!

  4. Merry Christmas Anne and S(h)ara!

  5. Merry Christmas, Anne and S(h)ara!

  6. Merry Christmas, ladies! And I can't wait to read that after Christmas post, Anne. :D
