More Attempts to Love Craig Rivet - This Attempt More Successful

by Anne

Here's a video yanked from Slightly Saucy featuring Mr. Rivet.

My favorite part is that they wear their gear from the hotel to the practice facility... it looks more than a little bit odd.


  1. I loved that clip. I like that he is comfortable calling the guys idiots, if they deserve it. I think he was a good choice for the Sabres.

  2. That clip was amazing! Why do the Sabres not have fun clips like this?

    I think his fun-but-tough attitude is what we need in our locker-room this season. Did I mention I love him already? =D

  3. Ha! I love this clip and I love shark byte! I really wish all teams had something like it because it's amazing.

    Rivet's a good guy, I really liked him and I was sad to see him go.

    If you want more of Rivet being mic'd up check out episode 4's Bonus Bytes and if I remember correctly Big Bear is pretty prominent in one of them (and Steve was in that clip, near the end, when all the guys where huddled around in the hallway)

  4. Please love Rivet, if for nothing else than his ability to do hilarious interview-type-things like this! Big Bear certainly schools him in the looks department, but Rivet can be pretty bad ass and funny too...

    Yeah, and as Soph said, definitely check out Shark Byte for a giggle! There's no feature on Steve really, but the camera loves him (obviously!), and he often pops up in the background!
