You Are All Enablers

by Anne

My love for the Buffalo Sabres is completely obvious based on nothing other than the fact that this blog exists. However, a few of my most beloved boys to don the blue and gold in recent years are imports or loaners. Most of my favorites (Pie, Pommer, Millsy) are Buffalo (hockey) born and bred, so chances are if there has been a widely available adorable youthful picture of them made available during their career, I've seen it.

HOWEVER. Current reigning #2, Anthony Craigory Rivet, is CLEARLY not a Buffalo Sabres original, therefore his past is foreign to me.

Therefore, I rely HEAVILY on fans of his former teams to enable my sick fascination with childhood and not-hockey related photos.

Honestly, my love for Craigory has never truly waned, but he was out for a few games and no one heard much about him because we were winning. In that awkward time my sad love affair with our new captain had cooled slightly. I needed SOMETHING to bring me back around to the light:

SOPH COMES THROUGH IN THE CLUTCH WITH AN ENTIRE PHOTO SPREAD OF AMAZING CRAIG RIVET PHOTOS!!!!

WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN

There are so many GEMS but I'll only post the ones that made me giggle uproariously and swoon the most.


Heeeeeeeeeeeee!!
Awwwwwwwww


Scott has the right idea here, PANIC
but A+ on the newsboy cap, Cap'n



Only the greatest smirk/mullet combination of ALL TIME


Since our blog is a hotbed for shirtless photo searches, here's another phrase to up the total:
Craig Rivet shirtless
...with a fish
....and a goatee
.... and that adorable dimple


BEST
HALLOWEEN
COSTUME
EVER.

Ok, I was in kind of a funk and then just as I was checking my email, I got Soph's comment enabling my obsession and it TOTALLY brightened my day. IMMEDIATELY. Because its Friday afternoon and I had time to kill, I IMMEDIATELY had to share this GLORY with the world. Soph and I should not be the only ones able to witness this magical magical photo gallery.

WEEEEE!

I would be remiss not to include this photo that Alix sent me a while ago but have not been able to use:


Aahhahahhahahaha look at his pudgy little chipmunk face!
LOVE

Good stuff, good stuff.

Another WCB vists us tonight:

    The carrot is the best, especially the gnarly teeth his wife(?) is wearing.

  7. Anne, I'm glad I could brighten up your day. I love those "Through the Years" from the programs. Unfortunately Big Bear was never featured...Sigh.

    I must say that I died when I read your caption for the picture with him with the fish. You are one funny lady :)

    That's because the sudden rash of hysterical collapses would drive doctors round the globe into a frenzy.

    Haha, thanks. As soon as I saw that one, I was like, "Goin' in the blog. Gotta keep the shirtless photo fiends satisfied."
