Ahhh It Must Be Almost October

by Anne

Soooo it really must be that time of year again, time for the seasons to start changing, leaves are turning gold, apples are ripening in the orchards, spiced cider is a brewin' on the stove top, and injury reports are dominating the headlines on espn.com.

From the Buffalo end of things, Roscoe Parrish will be out 4 to 6 weeks with a thumb injury. He needs to have surgery to repair a nagging problem that flared up during the fourth quarter of the game against Oakland.

Booooooo. Roscoe is our top return guy so this isn't good. On the plus side, our bye week falls during those 4 to 6 weeks so he'll probably only miss like 4 games, but on the obvious downside, we've lost our top return man. This will be a good test for Leodis McKelvin and James Hardy to show they've earned their jobs in the NFL but stepping up and filling in the role vacated by Roscoe.


Where is this pool and is this an open invitation?!?!

On the hockey front:

Sergei Gonchar of the Pttsburgh Penguins is out "indefinitely" with a separated shoulder he suffered during a pre-season game. Grrrrrrrreat. The Pens defense is getting thinner by the minute.



NOW who is Geno going to pop his collar with and lean awkwardly to the left?

Erik Jonhson, the Blues #1 overall pick in 2006 will miss the entire season because he tore his MCL and ACL. How, you might ask? Hard check? rough collision? Awkward slide into the board? Accidentally getting his foot stuck between the brake and accelerator on a golf cart? Ding ding ding ding!!


Is anyone surprised he's blonde?


Last night during the Montreal/ Detroit pre-season game, Hab Mathieu Carle was knocked unconscious and had to leave the ice on a stretcher. No word yet on his prognosis but anytime you lose consciousness, thats, er um, BAD. Am I right, Timmy?! Timmy?! Aw, come on, Timmy! I was just kidding! Come back! I like this new reckless "smiling" behavior. You're living life on the edge and I LOVE it.


Poor Mathieu.
At least he's cute.
CALL ME DURING YOUR CONVALESENCE, MATHIEU!

And on the Sabres front, Tim Connolly is fine. I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!


Awww Timmers ILU.

  1. And on the Sabres front, Tim Connolly is fine. I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!

    I wouldn't be too sure about that... He was the only regular Sabre missing from practice today. Unless, that is, he was only there for the first half hour, which I missed...

    go to the Sabres website and under "Stats" it says 2008-2009 Media Guide. Its pretty entertaining reading material... for the hockey obsessed that is.
