Thanks, that was fun

To paraphrase that noted hockey fan Charles Schultz, “Rats!”

To put it in perspective, the US Men’s Hockey Team wasn’t supposed to be in the medals, but a few epic games lead to a classic today. Congrats by all means to Canada. I was a little worried when our All-World goaltender was going to spend two weeks in the hands of the braintrust of the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the rest of the world found out we know, just how good he is. I’ve missed Sabres hockey, but it has been a hoot to see people jump on the bandwagon and I’m sure HSBC Arena will erupt when he takes the ice and you know he will.

The whole team looked like they wanted to kill themselves during the medals ceremony and you’d have to have a heart of stone to not be moved by the images of Miller alone with his thoughts right after the goal or of Miller and Sabres coach Lindy Ruff meeting at centre ice (spelled in honor of the winners). On the bright side, none of our guys got hurt during the tourney and perhaps this will make Ryan mad for the March run.

Left with just one question, why did it have to be Crosby?!?!
