Big Wheels Keep On Turning...

I have to admit, I'm feeling pretty okay about tonight's loss to Montreal. Maybe it's the Christmas spirit. Maybe it's being done with work for two weeks. Maybe it's being focused on getting ready for vacation. (If by "focused" you mean sitting around and thinking about packing for 24 more hours and then finally doing so two hours before we leave for the airport.) Maybe it's sitting here in the dark looking at the softly lit Christmas tree and the glittery snow outside the window. Maybe it was learning that Jason Pominville types with two fingers or seeing Toni Lydman in a Santa hat. Maybe it's the fact that, when all was said and done, it was a pretty entertaining game. Whatever the reason, for one night hockey was fun and a loss didn't make me want to put a fist through my laptop screen.

I'm leaving town at an ungodly hour Monday morning so this will probably be it for me for a few days. If I don't check in again, I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas or whatever it is you celebrate.

Let's go Buff-a-l0!

Merry Christmas from Toni Lydman, Buffalo Sabres Defensman

I love Tony's S(abres)anta hat!

That picture of Toni will never fail to make me smile. I always picture him as this hard-rocker, so seeing him like that with those kids was too great for words.

If you don't get this before, have a safe trip and a very Merry Christmas!
