Ugh

I was standing in line for ice-cream and a Coke. A very long, painfully slow moving line. Daniel F. Briere had just tied the game and then put the Flyers up (Kate's fault - she actually said OUT LOUD, "As long as it's not Briere") and I could see Bucky Gleason up in the press box giggling in delight so I was already cranky. And then the period started and I was STILL standing in the line that was NOT MOVING AT ALL when a puck blooped into the net to put the Flyers up 5-3. The escalator was right there. I told myself I could just leave, no problem. I could text Kate and tell her I couldn't take any more and surely she would understand. I could stop at Anderson's on the way home and get ice-cream and a Coke. The escalator was RIGHT THERE.

But I didn't leave. In fact, I stayed until the very bitter end. Because I'm sick. Very, very sick.

If you had left me there I would NOT have forgiven you. Ever. :P

And like I said at the game, if a team can't survive the very mild jinx of me saying, "As long as it's not Briere," well, they deserve the loss they get. I need to be able to SPEAK OUT LOUD at a hockey game without worrying about jinxing our fragile little band of underachievers into oblivion. The Briere thing is on them.

After 2 of those lucky goals I had thought that the Sabres had found their collective horseshoe again. Someone must have sold it for scrap.

I'm joining you in the very, very sick boat. I watched the game on the DVR,even though I knew they lost.

Yes I share in your frustration. I was there and said the same comments, "As long as it isn't Effin Briere! If he scores, I am so leaving!" Two goals later, I was still there. Kaleta should have bumped him out when the little pip-squeak tried to start something in the wee minutes of the game starting.

You're right. I'm just making fun :P And I wouldn't have actually left. Despite how awful parts of the game were, I still had a blast. I'm working on a post about that right now actually.

Oh, Amy. That is very sick indeed.
