I Hate The Sabres

Tonight I'm going to put the same amount of effort into my blog entry that the Sabres put into the Leafs game. Whoops, I think I've overdone it.

I can't even talk about this game right now but I will say this: At one point in the game I would've traded the entire team - including Hank and Lindy - for Mats Sundin. And you know what? Even John Ferguson, Jr. would've said, "I ain't that stupid."

The only good thing about this game was that Mats Sundin always makes me think of one of my all-time favorite commercials (second only to Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine in "Chicks Dig the Longball"), the French-Canadian Goalie Cab Driver.

Here, watch 'em. They're way more entertaining than anything you saw from the Sabres tonight, I promise.

Well, it's been fun. I think I'm going to start up an American Idol blog or something because hockey? Totally blows.

Yes, but did you watch the commercials? ;-)

At least your post made me smile. Because that game? Totally blew. Sort of like the grammar in this comment.

I LOVE those commercials. I remember when they were on all the time. There are several of them, the one about Mats, (another with a goalie and a lawnmower taking out all the maple leafs) then a couple about Jeremy Roenick, Rod Brind'Amour and my personal favorite "Mr. Blond Haired Russian Freak Boy" Sergei Fedorov-

"Die, maple leafs, die!"

Sam (I'm so glad you've de-lurked, btw!), I think my other favorite is the goalie bank robber. I don't think it's as funny overall but I love 1) the guy running down the street in full goalie gear INCLUDING his skates and 2) "His name was on the back of his jersey."

Karen, glad I could get you to crack a smile atleast. Geez! Frakkin' Sabres!

Yeah that one is good. "Let ME wear the mask."

Nike skates weren't all that amazing but man the commercials were grand. DId you see the playoff ones with the flyers goalie harassing Fedorov? They were really short- in one, he creeps up behind a Jeep with something like "FEDS" on the plate and sticks a bananna in the tailpipe, another where he puts shaving cream in the skate, one where he defaces a billboard of Feds, and then a couple of prank calls. A few of them are on YouTube, but sadly I haven't been able to find the whole set. (and yes, I've looked)

Speaking of great commercials, have you seen the Hockey Falls ones? There are quite a few and they are very amusing as well.

At least we can laugh about something.

And maybe by tomorrow the Sabres will have gotten their collective heads out of their asses and decide to PLAY hockey.. yeesh.
