We climbed our very own summit today. The Staten Island Dump.
If you're on this site in June, I don't have to explain the Sabres Summit to you. The roster had some of our favorite and least favorite people (VAGUE FACELESS INTERNET INSULT ALERT // IS HE KIDDING OR ISN'T HE?? WE WILL NEVER KNOW) **sidenote: an ant just crawled out of my keyboard...wtf** In true moronic fashion, the DGWU Crew finished our horrifically long work days and headed straight to a bar to form our own NYC Sabre Summit, complete with rounds of applause for each individual's entrance. We even had a special guest appearance: Joe, of Buffalo Wins Fame...who should probably stop hanging out with us because we are a bad influence on good blogging. We drank pints, bummed weird Indian cigarettes (just because American Spirits take 90 minutes to smoke doesn't make them healthy, chief) and opined about our love for Sabres Hockey.
Down to business. Here is an unwanted and insignificant recap of our unnecessary New York City Sabre Summit of 2011 (any opinions are gospel truth and should be regarded as such and if not, a gilded bag of cocks to you kind traveler):
1.) The Apologist and I are basically communists, whereas everyone else aside from The Barrister (I think he may be a socialist) exists within political gray area of rational thought. How did this come up? Young teachers are getting rogered on all sides by Unions, the BOCES dropouts in the NYS Assembly/Senate, and old people. Seriously, it is the position of DGWU Sports that the Education system in this country is fucked beyond belief.
2.) Of each Borough of the Five, the greatest rappers from each are as follows: 1.) Brooklyn: Biggie 2.) Staten Island: GZA 3.) Queens: Nas 4.) The Bronx: (3 way tie) Inspectah Deck/Big Pun/KRS-One 5.) Manhattan: Big L **judges reversal - Guru & Premier just recorded in Staten Island sometimes, but as they were raised in Boston & Houston, respectively, they don't qualify upon further review, Scizz. My bad.**
3.) Wu-Tang Clan is indeed nothing to fuck with.
4.) The Sabres need a center almost as bad as they need a Stanley Cup. Half the crew (Barrister, Aps) think they are a few years away, and the other half thinks they are a splashy Centerman + a solid defenseman away from contending (Scizz, Yachtsman). I'm pretty sure I have those divisions right.
5.) We need some more Sabres Road Crew love here in New York City. Not saying that we're going to get it, but we're going to need some.
6.) Look for some interweb streaming CrapTastiPreGames for key Sabres & Bills games from us this upcoming season.
Finally, here's a quick StreetCast
we did in front of Drop Off Service on Avenue A tonight, replete with hammered rambling and cat poop. Thank you for your continued sympathy, which enables us to act like morons with impunity.
This post was heavily influenced by uncontrollable insomnia and the musical stylings of the Wu-Tang Clan.
