Friday I said goodbye to one of my co-workers who is returning home to B.C.. I was sad to see him leave. We always got along well and I enjoyed working with him. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
That afternoon we closed work early and played splat ball. It was a lot of fun. It was suppose to be staff only but one co-worker brought a friend… who ended up complaining every game about something and even telling off the referee who told him he was the first person in 18 years to ever complain. Ho-hum. It was intense… everyone should play it at least once. It is better with people that are of equal skill.
Saturday we drove up to B.’s sister’s cottage. The weather was decent most of Friday and various chores around the cottage were completed.
The Sabres great year came to an anti-climatic ending vs. the Sens who won their second OT game. The series was close. Two OT games and, 2 games decided by 1 goal. I’m not sure if Sabres’ fans will consider this a great year for the team or not. The one team, one goal was obviously the Cup, but the way the team played in the playoffs I wonder if they forgot what the goal was after finishing first overall. Personally I’m disappointed. Not just because the Sabres lost, but because the effort to win wasn’t what I was expecting by all the players. Outside of the goaltender few players played with the consistent tenacity necessary to win the Cup. It is sad. How many chances do these players expect to make it to the conference finals and get a chance to play for the Cup? Isn’t that their highest goal as a player? It didn’t seem like it. I don’t know what next year will bring… There will inevitably be a ton of action during the Sabres’ post season. Who will stay in Buffalo. The question has been raised since the start of the year. Goodbye Drury? Briere? Vanek? Zubrus? Everyone will have to wait as see. I’m hoping the team gets a little more grit. I hope they get rid of Spacek. What an overpaid dud he turned out to be. Better luck next year? Originally I figured I’d go for whomever won in the Eastern Conference in the next round. But the thought of garbage like Neil, Corvo or Spezza raising the Cup is pretty repugnant. GO DUCKS? Meh. Go Toronto F.C.!
