The Plight of a Buffalo Sabres Fan

As if it’s not bad enough that we’re stuck in a division with three Canadian teams, now we’re going to have to hear the Bruins introduced as “The Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins” for at least the next 10 months and Tim Thomas introduced as “2011 Vezina and Conn Smythe Trophy Winner Tim Thomas.” Ugh. I think I’d rather see Mike Modano* in a Sabres jersey than have to deal with that bullshit.

High-res 2010fifaworldcup:

The photo says it all. Congratulation Spain for your first World Cup victory.

I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person among us who is rooting for Spain, and I’m completely OK with that.  The World Cup isn’t about making friends, it’s about putting your hatred of marine creatures aside and celebrating when the spider-of-the-sea selects your third-favorite team to win the tournament.

Yessssssss! The Dempsey goal is a thing of beauty, what with the spin move and the blown save and oh man it’s perfect!

I love to hate:

  • MLB - Yankees, Braves
  • NFL - Cowboys, Patriots
  • NBA - ALL
  • NHL - Senators, Stars
  • PGA - Lee Westwood, Darren Clarke
  • NASCAR - Any driver that only turns left in all but two races a year
  • PBA - That one chubby dude that resembles his ball. No not that one, the other one.
  • NCAAF - Miami, Virginia
  • NCAAB - KU, KSU
  • ATP - The manlier Williams sister.
  • WORLD CUP - France, Brazil
  • FOOD - Rachael Ray, The Gorton’s Fisherman

Chad Pennington, the NFL’s all-time leader in completion percentage, could explode a chipmunk from 1-15 yards out. However, he couldn’t nail a brontosaurus on a deep post.

Brad Evans - Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Guru

There are countless reasons why I love Fantasty Football so much, but one of my favorites is reading the consistently hilarious blog posts served up daily by the Yahoo! Sports crew.  Brad Evans in particular has a knack for creating gut-busting mental images and assigning Berman-esque nicknames, all while dispensing worthy and helpful fantasy data and advice.

George Carlin - Sports (From Playing With Your Head)

My favorite 9 minutes of comedy.  It’s a relentless barrage of hilarity.  This man was so good, and his delivery was always absolutely perfect.

There are so many amazing one-liners that I constantly use:

"You know how you speed up baseball? Everybody gets one swing.  That’s it, one swing, fuck you, you’re out. Sit down."

"Hockey is not a sport - hockey is three activities going on at the same time: ice skating, playing with a puck, and beating the shit out of somebody."

"What is a puck? I’ve never even heard of a puck outside of hockey. Have you ever heard of a puck? The only other place you find a puck is in the urinal to control the smell in the bathroom."

"Swimming isn’t a sport. Swimming is a way to keep from drowning!"

"Riding a bus isn’t a sport… whyyy the fuck should SAILING be a sport?"

"Lacrosse? Lacrosse is not a sport; lacrosse is a faggot college activity. That’s right: anytime you’re standing in a field with a stick with a net on the end of it, you’re engaged in a faggot college activity."

"Gymnastics is not a sport because Romanians are good at it."

"I don’t know about you, but that’s what I’m looking for in auto racing: a nice crash and a car fire.  I don’t care who wins these races - it’s the same five rednecks who win all the time anyway - who gives a shit about these people? I gotta be honest with you, driving 500 miles in a circle does not impress me."

"In fact all raquet games are derrivatives of ping pong - even volleyball is raquetless-team-ping-pong-played-with-an-inflated-ball-and-a-raised-net-while-standing-on-the-table."

"Did you ever watch golf on TV? It’s like watching flies fuck."
