There was a game?

by Anne

I could not have been more distracted tonight. A 3 ton elephant could've run across the ice and I probably would not have noticed. Ugh. THINGS.

The PA guy was SCREAMING at the beginning of the night. It was not the usual dude. The nice quiet pre-game old game was finished playing, there was a lull and then all of a sudden "THIS ARENA HAS ENHANCED THE MEASURES...." I almost dropped my tray.

Tara Minogue or whatever her name is, is trying to kill us all. Tonight's anthems were slightly faster than last time's but seriously, at the Toronto game I had basically packed up by the time she got to "in all thy sons command."

Anyway, tonight I saw Kate and Heather. Also saw some of my usual regulars including a dude that gets a big kick out of the fact that I always remember what he orders. Its not that complicated but he seems to appreciate it.

Tonight I counted the number of people who asked me for beer: 5

Next game - chewing tobacco chewers.

Although, I have to say, I correctly remembered that that goal was not Pat Kaleta's first of the season. Listen, this girl has an incredible memory. I don't remember EVERYTHING but I do remember when Sabres score goals. Especially because I have been in HSBC Arena for every goal Pat Kaleta has scored on home ice. No exaggeration.

Yo the Blue Jackets beat the Sharks... in OT, so they have 53 points now. WTF? That's insane.

Ok, I need to chill the eff out. I know none of you know (except S(h)ara) what I'm talking about, but just agree with 2 things: 1. I need to calm the hell down and 2. Is there really any thing in the world that isn't automatically made better by looking at this picture?:


What a good-time gang
(I don't remember where I found this picture)


It'll be ok, right Goose?

It sure will, Annie B.

  1. I don't know what's going on, but I encourage you to chill out. It WILL all be okay.

    And THANK you for saying that about the anthem singer. I do NOT want to listen to someone sing the anthems for forty-five minutes. Singing too slowly is the CARDINAL sin of anthem singing in my opinion.

  3. I have been waiting for the day when a ridiculous picture of Ryan Miller would surface, and it has made my last day of finals so much better. Thank you, Anne, for making my day. =]

    Kim and I are going to the game on Monday, so we'll come find you.

  5. I sent that pic to MJ like 3 or 4 months ago and she wouldnt post it... LMAO! I wasn't going to do it! I thought maybe she would... I can't get over the beer... I am assuming college time. Because how many millions is he making and drinking piss in a can? Hubby and I had this discussion ions ago... LOL... because he looks really young.

  6. Ryan Miller drinks beer? I thought he only drank spring water, lovingly purified by water nymphs and fortified with awesome.

    Thanks, in the clear light of morning I'm still feeling the residuals from being worked up but mostly I'm all "Yo, what is your deal?"

    It makes me mad because I know there are MUCH better singers available. Both S(h)ara and I can sing and sing well and we're both like "dude, I'LL do it."

    No problem. Its been hanging out on my computer for a few months and I could not find a reason to post it, then I forgot about it, haha.

    Kim and I are going to the game on Monday, so we'll come find you.

    Sweet!

    I honestly can't believe no one's seen it before. Usually when I post pictures I assume they've been viewed many times but not a. that Teppo picture or b. this one of the Miller Family reunion or whatevs.

    Whoops, if MJ won't post it, maybe that's a bad sign... meh, unless someone emails me and asks me to take it down, up it stays. Who cares? No one of import reads this blog... I don't think... Hahahaha. I have no idea when its from, but I think its more recent than college, but I really have no idea.

    When no one was look he dumped that vile "beer" into the lake and filled his can with his specially blended glacier/vitamin complex/immune boosting elixir mixed by a shaman specially for him.

  14. I knew right away that the PA announcer wasn't the usual guy. It upset me because he said Drew's name wrong after he scored. He didn't say it like 'DREEEEEEEEEW'.
