Birthday BitsOctober 24, 2008
– Add me to the list of people who thought that Miller scoring on his own net was probably one of the funniest moments of this young season (second funniest: Spacek saying the word “pigeon”). I think what made it so great was the fact that Miller was laughing about it and shaking his head before the puck dropped. It was like he realized that there was nothing he could do about it and decided to just roll with it.
And you know that not only is he probably getting shit from his teammates and coaches about it (including a threat by Lindy that the next time Miller scores means he buys the entire team dinner), but with being in Colorado tonight, he’s probably going to be getting shit in person from his BFF Jon-Michael Liles.
And on the plus side, the mouse potatoes of the world took Miller’s brain fart incredibly well. No one threw him too far under the bus.
– And “Birthday Claus” brought me the best birthday presents today. In addition to last night’s Sabres win, which was an early present in my eyes, I got tickets to the December 10th game against Tampa and a Gaustad t-shirt. Its a 3rd logo t-shirt with the retro letter and numbering on the back. Its very cool looking.
