A Buffalo Sabres Christmas

This little top six here seems to need a good home.  We'll decorate it and it'll be just right for our team.  Besides, I think they need me.

Boy, are you stupid, Darcy.  Look at that thing.  It'll keel right over from the pressure.  You're hopeless, Darcy, completely hopeless.  You've been dumb before, but this time you really did it.  What a top six!

No, no, no.  It'll be perfectly - oh, crap.  

Well, we got one goal out of it before it completely collapsed.  That's totally cool, right?  :::siiiiiigh:::  I guess you were right, Lindy. I shouldn't have picked this top six. Everything I do turns into a disaster. I guess I really don't know what hockey is all about.  Isn't there anyone who knows what hockey is all about?

 Sure, Darcy.  I can tell you what hockey is all about.  It's about learning to win and to lose.  It's about good times with friends and family.  It's about community and feeling a part of something even for a few moments.  It's about believing in something in a day and age when sometimes it's hard to believe.  It's about putting aside practicality and logic and daring to dream.  And that's what hockey is all about, Darcy.

 Wow, that was really beautiful, buddy.  It made me remember why I fell in love with hockey in the first place.  I wish all the fans out there could have heard that.  I wonder what their reaction would be.

At first I was scared you were really attempting to make us like hockey again. I mean, I love Linus and all, but I'm not buying it. :P

Goodness, no! Even I have my limits.

Every time the Sabres string together some games where they look like actual NHLers only to lose pathetically again, I feel like Charlie Brown getting the football ripped away from him by that sadistic hussy, Lucy.

(Oh, and I second what Katebits said. You had me a bit worried for a minute there...)

That was ADORABLE, Heather! (Okay, not the point. But... Charlie Brown!)

And playing the part of The System? Linus's blanket.
