Happy Hallow(cough cough cough sneeze, sniffle)ween

by Anne

If you couldn't tell from my masterfully crafted title, I'm sick. I've been sneezing my face off all day. Seriously though, if anyone sees my face lying around the streets of Buffalo or on the Buffalo State College campus, gimmie a holler and I'll re attach it.

So I stayed home, handed out some candy, took a lengthy scalding hot shower and listened to the Pirates game. It was pretty entertaining. Sounded like an exciting game, especially the 2nd period in which the Pirates scored 3 goals. Kennedy, Schutz and HerbeGerbe scored and some dude named Slattengren, playing in his 2nd AHL game, scored in the 3rd. Jhonas Enroth got himself a shutout, stopping 29 shots. Hooray! 5-1-1 for the Pirates! WOOOO!!!!

I keep forgetting to mention this dude's name. I was listening to the Pirates play the Hartford Wolf Pack the other night and I had to investigate this player's name because I frankly didn't believe that the announcer was saying it correctly. It's Didiomete (dee-dee-oh-mee-tee) what a totally rad name.

The 'Hawks beat the Stars 5-2, Sharpie did not appear on the score sheet but Kaner had a goal and 2 assists. Yayyyyy!!!

OH AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL THINGS:

BIG BEAR SCORED TWO GOALS IN LAST NIGHT'S SHOOTOUT WIN OVER THE DUCKS!!!! YAYYYYY!!! BIG BEAR!!!!


YYYYAYYYYY!!!


FEEL THE AWESOME LOVE OF BIG BEAR

Oh yeah and the shootout went to THIRTEEN rounds. At that point AV's gotta be considering taking a chance with the backup goalie and the equipment manager. Once again, I'm sure this 7-6 game was an exercise in defensive hockey.

There are about 90 kabillion other things I'd rather do than work tonight. One of them includes sleep, another would be shooting myself in the foot.

I HATE BEING SICK. :( :(

  1. Yaaaaay, Pirates! (: I'm glad to see that Enroth got a shutout since I heard he wasn't doing too well in the goals against department.

    I'm sorry you're sick, Anne. Feel better soon!

  2. Nice to see Enroth get the shutout AND to see Gerbe, Mancari, and Kennedy basically owning the AHL. I am loving it.

    And YAY for Bernier! I was SO MAD at Darcy for trading him in that time period between when he was traded away and we had yet to get Rivet... Very endearing guy hahahaha.

    Feel better soon! No fun to be sick at work.
