Fine 4444orm!

Yesterday, the Sabres slaughtered the Thrashers of Atlanta 10-1!! Click here for the wrap up of the game and a photo of a smiling #9, Derek Roy. He had three goals last night just like Drew Stafford. Roy was #5 in team scoring last season and is up to #2 this year, trailing only Jason Pominville, who was a notch ahead of him last year too at #4.

Unfortunately tonight, the Sabres came back down to earth - losing 4-2 in Toronto - but I don't really want to advertise that fact.

Yours truly is now advertising his business as a walking (skating?) billboard...Sometimes we just need to think outside the (penalty) box...

I had my company name put on two hockey jerseys and even put #9 on one. It is not for the Sabres' Derek Roy but the St. Louis Blues' Paul Kariya, as it is a Blues jersey I have owned for several years. It is Paul's first year on the Blues and he is leading the way by example!

One year ago today, the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Sabres. Our opener on MSG-TV could be considered a bit of a blooper as we promoted all-star Roberto Luongo - but he got a rare night off. Danny Sabourin played well for Luongo that night - and TONIGHT again. Sabourin shutout Montreal 2-0 as he was between the pipes for Pittsburgh. So look for Sabourin to be playing again on January 19, 2009...Some things are just meant to be...

This includes the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. February 12 - 28 are the dates. The Canadian Olympic Hockey team should be led by Roberto Luongo in net and I'm crossing my fingers for Vancouver-born Paul Kariya to get a shot too...
