He Really Wants to Be Here…Maybe…Kinda…Yeah-ish

July 31, 2008

It sounds like Craig Rivet is finally coming around to the idea of being a Buffalo Sabre.

I’m glad that while Soupy and Mike Grier were busy trashing the Sabres organization, they took a few minutes to praise both the City of Buffalo and the people of Buffalo. I’m more shocked that Doug Gilmour (!) praised the City of Buffalo. Dougie left Buffalo on some not so good terms, if I remember correctly.

I realize that professional athletes life a different lifestyle than us fans, but why does he need a 5,000 square foot house? That size house could cause a husband, a wife and three kids to never see each other during the course of a day, as everyone probably has their own wing.

And in other news, SOTC Manor is back online after a devastating power outage last night forced us to abandon the internet. However, it was nice to sit outside and talk with our neighbors. It wasn’t so nice when we discovered a bat in our attic. He’s still there, and members of my family are taking on a bat-hunting expedition this morning. Heaven help us all.
