Candid Camera

October 23, 2009

H/T to Sabres.com for posting the game night intro video on Sabres.com. I’m going to wade into the shallow end of the pool for a moment.

gooseandganderLook at their matching injuries – Stafford’s lip scrape and Gaustad’s beak scrape. It’s pre-season and these guys are already beat up.

– The #KyleWellwoodIsSoFat meme that broke out on Twitter was cracking me up for most of the afternoon. Could you imagine some of the ones that could be done for the Sabres?

  1. Derek Roy is so fashionable that…
  2. Tim Connolly is so injured that…
  3. Ryan Miller is so skinny that…
  4. Paul Gaustad is so environmentally conscious that…
  5. Jason Pominville is so adorable that…

I promise some actual hockey content tomorrow as I recap the Battle of the Crunchies live from my very own sofa. (On a somewhat related note, it’s pretty hilarious that Tampa has pronunciation guides on their player roster for names as simple as Drew Miller. How the heck would you mispronounce that?)

  1. That video is totally trying to sell everyone on the notion that these aren’t the same cute cuddly Sabres we’re all used to. These are the new brawling, bruising, bad-ass Sabres, you guys. They even got Jason Pominville to grow a little scruff in order to look like the most threatening labradoodle that ever was. Nothing in the video is scarier than Ryan Miller’s tiny, dead-eyed head nod (a la Chucky Cheeze puppets.) That part kind of made me want to hide under the table.

    No doubt it’ll be (re)edited soon enough, but as of now, here are his stats on his Wiki page:

    Height 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m)
    Weight 18,100 lb (8,210 kg; 1,292 st 12 lb)


    BTW, Lightning fans apparently need help pronouncing SMIHTH, MIGHK.
