I'm going to make this quick. Mostly 'cause I'm back in Boston and I'm homesick already. Kim would be doing this if she weren't stranded in an airport, FYI. I almost didn't get to do it because I was stranded on the Masspike. Fuck the world n'at.
1.) The Sabres are still Islanders-caliber hockey. Their win was kind of flukey--they were on home ice and we weren't playing like we should have. But it's okay, because, unlike the NFL, we play an actual SEASON of our beloved sport. Sabres aren't making the playoffs. You heard it here first.
2.) Speaking of the NFL, the New England Patriots are hacks. Steelers were in Pats country tonight to take New England to task. Even if you're not a Steelers fan you can appreciate a Boston sports team getting totally fucked by something from Pittsburgh. It makes your heart swell with pride. It makes your eyes water. If you, like me, were trapped in a bottleneck in the middle of Connecticut listening to this game, you had mental visions of Pittsburgh sports bars full of happy drunks enjoying our city's superb night. I fucking hate football, especially NFL football, but 33-10 isn't fooling around. Thanks, Pittsburgh. Boston will always be inferior to you. You know it's bad when your own radio play-by-play announcers call the game "revolting."
3.) Our team is fucking incredible. They're not lying when they say Pittsburgh has the best offensive one-two punch in hockey. And even if they are, we still have a solid team offensively and defensively, good for fifth in the league and what might as well be third in the conference, if the Crapitals didn't play in a made-up division. No one is safe. Bring it.
4.) Food, family, and Pittsburgh. We were home for Thanksgiving. It was epic. Thanks for asking.
5.) Rangers got shut out by Florida Panthers tonight. Bet that's still gonna burn a little on Wednesday. Let's get another point or two out of MSG and put it in our December piggy bank.
We can't wait to see if they'll start Lundqvist.
Look forward to various ADD-like off-day features before Wednesday.
