Sabres vs. Islanders: A Story in Pictures

January 16, 2011

There were some really good photos taken at last night’s Sabres/Isles game. Please click on the captioned link to go and see the photo in question on ESPN.com.

Won’t someone be Lalime’s friend and save him from the oompa-loompa-y looking lady standing next to him?

Oh F*$#! I just killed Miller. Now they’re going to send me back to Portland. I’ll never see the NHL again.

Instead of a teddy bear, Miller sleeps with a goal stick. I wonder if he was actually knocked out or was he just taking a moment to catch his breathe and re-orient himself again?

Please tell me someone else sees the humor behind a flight of stairs being labeled “No Exit.” Where else would a staircase lead you?

No Tyler, I don’t think holding your breath until the Sabres win is a viable strategy.

Sweet Jesus at the craft store, how difficult is it to spell Niedermayer correctly? This is the second game that the spell check has failed for Rob. If I were him, I’d be worried that this was a sign that I would be shipped out of town soon for a manatee that could play the third line.

Darcy Did Something!

July 7, 2010

The Sabres today announce that they’ve signed Rob Niedermayer to a one year deal. The Sabres sign Nieder, I create a blog post featuring an Animal House video. It’s a win-win situation, really. The Sabres get some grit, determination and a player with a Cup ring, and I get inspiration for a blog post.

Animal House is one of my favorite movies, in case you were wondering.

And to make the day a lot better, the Sabres announced that Patty Lalime has been signed to a one year deal. Was there much of a doubt as to whether this would happen? Enroth’s not ready for the big show quite yet, and Lalime keeps Miller loose and relaxed. Miller doesn’t need “keeping rookie backup goalie sane” added to the things that he carries on his shoulders. Now the task is just getting Lindy to do something completely insane and play his backup  goalie on a slightly more regular schedule. This only playing the backup on the second Tuesday of next week when the moon is in the 7th house won’t cut it anymore.

And since Niedermayer got a video, it’s only fair that Lalime get one. Lalime’s video is really more of a Ryan Miller video, but it contains Miller’s quite adorkable impression of his goalie partner.
