Shhhh! If you listen closely, you can hear every Friendly's waitress within a seven mile radius.
Do you hear that Buffalo fans? No? That's because the Buffalo blogosphere is absolutely silent this morning (Aps post notwithstanding
). I assume by the time this post goes up, many other blogs and websites will have chimed in with their opinions and breakdowns of game three, but as of late morning, I saw almost nothing. Last night was a heartbreaker and this whole series has taken a lot out of all of us. I know personally, I didn't have have it in me to write about my post-game thoughts. So I figured, what the hell? Let's have some fun on DGWU today. That means I will NOT being talking about how Chris Butler has made me look like an idiot the past two games
. I will NOT being talking about how Ryan Miller needs to be incredible tomorrow night. And I will definitely NOT being talking about the crowd noise, or lack-there-of in HSBC arena last night. (OK, maybe one thing. If you are a defender of the crowd last night, fine, but I don't think anyone with an inkling of intelligence believes that the dead-crowd cost them the game. That would be ignorant. It's just frustrating for fans who do not not have access, nor never will have access to seats like those in the lower sections, to have to watch those people sit on their hands during crunch time last night. I wanted to stab them with their own silver spoon. Yes, I am bitter I could never afford those seats.)Nothing but fun and games from the Scizz this afternoon. I have collected several videos/links/pictures/comments for your viewing and listening pleasure to help get you through the day. Consider me your personal Jester today. Enjoy!
Wrong Jester, but I'm still going to run with it.
Remember my post last week about how important Buffalo and WNY are to us? Below is some evidence I wanted to include in that piece that I never had a chance to. McFadden's in NYC after a Bills win. These types of videos always put a smile on my face and make me proud to be from WNY.
I am going to stop beating you over the head with our podcast. If you haven't listened yet, please do, you can find it on this site. However, what I am going to do is promote another podcast. Specifically, Sklarbro Country over at earwolf.com
(for free). This is the sports/comedy podcast that inspired to me to get the band back together and record our own. I highly recommend either Patton Oswalt episode.
: "As the Sabres-Flyers NHL Playoff series shifts to Buffalo for games three and four, today Mayor Byron Brown declared the lobby of City Hall a “No Orange (Flyers) Zone”. To emphasize the point, the Mayor has hung a banner with those words in the lobby of City Hall."
Below is the picture Mayor Brown took to promote his "zone". Brilliant.
Before I present the next vid, here is an actual text from the Yachtsman this morning after discussing how awful today was starting off: "I just wanna stay home and 'amuse myself' to Charmed re-runs". You can follow him on twitter @Y_vo, folks.
This next video is a little longer and older, but holy jeebus it is hilarious. My girlfriend has actually brought up the idea that DGWU should do a drunken Buffalo sports history. Thoughts? Volunteers? Apologist, I'm thinking your roommate.
I normally like to keep politics off of this site, but you have to check this out
. Weiner was discussed last night amongst the DGWU crew. Politics aside, he is friggin' histarical AND an avid hockey fan. He referenced Pesach and Jonathan Quick in the same tweet last night....that is all-star status.
Another suggestion to get you through the day/evening is enjoy some other sad and disappointing sports franchises. I for one am attending the Mets game tonight, but also the Knicks will probably get blown out in Game two in Boston (and yes, we are all Knicks fans here at DGWU).
Finally, is anyone else as excited as I am about watching the full video for "Fight For Your Right-Revisited" when it drops on May 3rd. I have seen this trailer about 72 times now and I keep noticing more celebrities upon every viewing. I was just told that is Buscemi at 0:14. Hope all of this crap helped! STAY POSITIVE!!!
Quick addition: Stay tuned to the site later today, as a new feature will be unleashed upon the masses. It is called post-game reflections with the Yachtsman. It is an audio feature and it is definitely NSFW, so listen at home and enjoy....unless you were completely against my thoughts on the crowd last night, theeeeeeen you may want to skip it altogether.
