Wait, there's no game tonight? Why didn't someone tell me?! What am I supposed to watch while I eat all this pizza?
I keep meaning to complain about this and now seems as good a time as any. What is up with the schedule this year? Were the schedule makers drunk or what? The Sabres played what felt like once every two weeks for the first couple months of the season and now I've gotten so used to them playing every other night that I'm sitting here in front of my television waiting for the game to start. I know a lot of teams are in the same boat so I'm in no way using this an excuse for the Sabres' struggles but it's puzzling. And I'm so excited about all the divisional games we're ending the season with. Why spread those out across 82 games when we can do them 10 at a time, you know?
A couple of non-hockey notes:
First, I am now walking. I repeat, I AM NOW WALKING! Okay, I'm actually hobbling like an 85-year-old man who's about to chase kids out of his yard but I managed to successfully carry a glass of water from the kitchen to the living room by myself. I am AMAZING. (Don't tell Mark. I plan on taking advantage of the "But I can't do it!" situation as long as I can. In fact, I typed this whole paragraph in a secret font that won't show up on his computer screen.)
Secondly, I decided that I might as well make use of this time off to visit the family at the old Henderson homestead. Since the Henderson homestead is in Sweet Home Alabama (Where the Skies are So Blue), I'll be far, far way from the Sabres and professional hockey in general. I'm sure I'll cue up WGR on the ol' laptop here and there and force the family to listen to some Rick Jeanneret and I'm sure I'll be poking in on other blogs to see how things are going. But since I won't actually be seeing the games myself, I probably won't have much to say here while I'm gone. Let's face it though... I've posted almost every day since I got home from the hospital in late December. You folks could probably stand a ten day or so break from me.
I'll be here after tomorrow's game though so don't start the party yet :P
