I hope everybody had a chance to download or listen to CrapTastiCast episode #2 today. But if you need more Sabres talk, look no futher (actually you probably will want to look a lot further), because The Scizz is here for your gameday and comedy needs! A few things that need to be discussed:
First, it looks as if Jordan Leopold will be playing tonight. Great news, since Montador has been playing like garbage and Morrisonn (why do you need an extra N, Shaone??) has not been much better. Hopefully the Big #3 can provide a spark and some leadership to these youngster defensemen. Also, Pronger is out again!!!!!!!! and Boucher will start in net because Bobrovsky apparently does not even have his own locker in the LOCKER-room today. Ouch.
Second, please go right over to twitter and look at the hash-tag #untruebrierefacts. High comedy at its best. Here are some of the highlights:
-"Danny Briere actually DID start the fire."
-"Danny Briere loves that Raffi Torres is trending on Twitter."
-"Danny Briere gave Jay McKee a staph infection"
-"Danny Briere's favorite Star Wars movie is "The Phantom Menace"
-"Danny Briere was sent from the future to kill Sarah Conner."
Third, how handsome is Ryan Miller? I mean look at that photo. I feel like at any moment a Bald Eagle is going to soar down and land on his should while lighting strikes the background and "I'm proud to be an American" starts blaring across the country. As mentioned above, if you do not cheer for Miller tonight then there is a 97% chance you are in Al-Qaeda.
Finally, since this is maybe the worst gameday preview in the history of sports blogs (wait nevermind, Colin Cowherd is still alive), you should go check out Zachary's preview of game three over Die by the Blade, and also Scotty's post on Brad Boyes over at Buffalo74. Both are fantastic reads. And starting at 3pm, Terry Pegula will be on WGR, followed by Rob Ray at 4pm and Jerry Sullivan at 5pm, although by the time Razor finishes up I'll be on my way for some pre-game cocktails with The Barrister.
In honor of The Yachtsman tweet from earlier, here is some De La Soul for your ears. Have a great night everybody and as always, SABRES ON THE WARPATH!!!!
