I watched it with Jen, and she's taking to this whole "Sabres fan" thing like a fish to water, in that she was talking a lot of shit without really knowing what she was talking about.
More later on that, from both of us.
I will say that the best moment of the night, (for me at least)was Brad Boyes getting in the first fight of his NHL career, and with the crowd roaring, they cut away to a local commerical featuring a contest where you can win a trip to a "Friendly's" ice cream parlour with, wait for it- Brad Boyes!
It was pretty sweet.
When I was growing up, if I wanted somebody to punch me in the mouth and then take me out for ice cream, I'd have to accidentally break a dish in front of my dad.
You see, that's funny becuase I was an abused child.
Oh, and as a follow up to yesterday's hopefulness for hockey on ESPN News, I got the following in an email from my pal Eric, who's the big Ranger fan:
>>Took your advice last night and tuned in (To ESPN NEWS) at 10.
>>NBA All-Star Game Reserves
>>Non-Stories from the Super Bowl
>>Then it was 11 and I turned to the Daily Show....
Ahh well, can't say I'm really surprised...
