I got all excited this morning when I realized that we play St. Louis tomorrow, because that means one of my favorite Prodigal Sabres returns to Buffalooooo!!!
Jay McKee is my first REALLY big Sabres love. Before him, there were Hasek (I was 5; don't judge me) and Brian Holzinger, but that was before all the hormones kicked in, so I think those were truly just hockey loves. I mean, I did think Brian was absolutely adorable, which he is, but I didn't know anything about him, so it was purely because he was a Sabre. But Jay? Oh, I love Jay. I once saw he and Marty Biron with their now wives at an *NSync concert. You know, the one at the Ralph. Anyways, my friend Colleen approached them only after Nicole and Anne Marie left, probably flocking to the bathroom, but she got a picture of them. AND JAY WAS WEARING A VISOR THAT SAID PORN STAR. I actually wouldn't doubt it. I'm still madly in love with Robert Jay Alan McKee. <3
So you can imagine my excitement when I looked at the schedule. Now, normally I'd know what team we're up against next, but since these long breaks between games KILL ME, I try not to focus on the next game too, too much, because then I can't distract myself from my Sabres deprivation.. BUT, when I saw it was the Blues, I looked at my mom, and in some pathetic little voice, go, "awwww we play Jay!"
But then I found this.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY THAT YOU CAN HAVE ST. LOUIS PLAY IN BUFFALO AND RELEGATE JAY TO NATHAN PAETSCH STATUS!!!! Has Murray completely lost his mind? I think so. Because if I have to sit through another Jay-less St. Louis game, I'll cry. No, really, I will.
Now I'm all depressed. Talk about high to low in 60 seconds.
BUT THERE IS SILVER LINING, because that article also brought out that Paul Kariya might now play?? That's fine by me since he's "hot like a firecracker," as Rick might say.
But also the Men's Journal is out now, and once I get off of my butt I might go to the store and pick it up. And when I say I might, I will. Most definitely.
I don't care if I'm not supposed to like Chris Drury anymore, he's so gosh-darned handsome. So I don't care. I'm going to buy it, and I'm going to enjoy it. Besides, how could I not enjoy Henrik Lundqvist and (DUH!) Markus Naslund??!?? Enough said.
AND THERE IS NO INTERESTING HOCKEY NEWS.
Except for the fact that Mike Ryan got demoted to Albany. NOT FAIR. Of course he'd be in North Carolina while I was in Boston, and of course he wouldn't be in Albany when I drove through there, either. NOT FAIR AT ALL. But seriously, they couldn't have used a better picture of him? I mean, his eyebrows look fantastic, but his hair is a little bit foofy... Whatever, though. HE HAS A JOB, and that's all that matters, and now MJ is very, very, very close to him, so yay.
Alright. I'm going to go buy some new CD's, and I'm going to go buy Men's Journal, and enjoy the beauty of NHL players for a little while, in order to forget that the Sabres aren't playing tonight, at least for a little while.
