So as excited as I was to be going to yet another Sabres game, I was kind of dreading it at the same time. See, I'm going with this guy I used to work with, his friend, and his friend's girlfriend. So it kinda feels like a date, since I sometimes get the feeling, and Kim sometimes thinks, that said guy likes me, so it's bound to be awkward. I thought, "At least Kim will be at the game, so I can steal a seat near her if things get really weird."
THEN I SAW THAT THE SABRES CALLED MARK MANCARI AT 5 PM YESTERDAY (while he was cleaning his apartment) AND TOLD HIM TO JUMP A PLANE TO BUFFALO.
Needless to say, I'm super excited, because if you go back a few days, I believe you'll recall my long post arguing why Marky Mark should don the blue and gold.
So now I don't really care if my group for the game appears to be a double date, or that they jersey for my friend will be in on Wednesday but I still have to wait for Princess D's jersey for an undetermined amount of time, BECAUSE I GET TO SEE MY AHL BOYFRIEND. SOOOOOO HAPPY.
And, on another note, LINDY IS BEGINNING TO ACT LIKE A TRUE COACH, benching people who don't deserve ice time currently.
Okay, back to Mark... I have to tell you, Kim and I are extremely devoted to him. Last November, the Amerks had a go-karting outing thing, where they were at an indoor track in Greece, NY, and you had to pay to race them, and the money went to charity... Well, Kim and I drove out there just to see him, and it was absolutely fabulous.
He's really tall, too, and I'm kinda on the short side, so my head was like, at his chin. So that was cool. But he smelled amazing, so it was all good.
ONE OF THE BEST EVENINGS OF OUR LIVES, BECAUSE WE WERE RIGHT UP AGAINST HIM. AHhhhhhhhHHHhhh Mark...
We actually first noticed him because he looked like David Fumero, who plays Christian Vega on One Life to Live, if any of you watch that trashy soap opera. Those are really the best, though, aren't they? And I think it's hilarious that hockey players watch soap operas... But that's a whole 'nother story.
I'll post more about the game later, after I get home... That is, if I'm not too disgusted. And I'm crossing my fingers that I won't be.
