Mercy Rule Weekend in Buffalo (& a #Bills Blackout Tweet of the Day!)

0

The Bills have applied the Mercy Rule for fans this week.

Let’s put a tourniquet-twist on one of the good ol’ days in Buffalo sport, and start the chant for this weekend here and now:

Thank you, Sabres!

Thank you, Bills!

This year is a special kind of nightmare for Buffalo sports fans. No hockey and humiliating football have combined to form the perfect ragestorm on the Twitter, radio, blog and print conversation – every week – for months now. I know I’ve had enough, and frankly, a blacked out game is kinda welcome news.

Family time in the B-lo. Use it to catch up on your holiday shopping, or visit one of those cultural thingys we talk so much about here. I hear the zoo is wonderful this time of year. Ooo – or you can go check out the view graffiti and giant friggin’ spiders at the top of City Hall.

“Hey look at the urban sprawl on THIS side! OMG THERE’S SPIDERS EVERYWHERE.” Yes. And these are just the babies.

Seriously though, I do love  my Buffalo. Hell, I settled here after trying out life on three separate continents. So, I’m going to take advantage of #blackoutlockoutmageddon and do what Buffalonians do in times of crisis like this: go to those art galleries buy a six pack and scan NFL mock drafts, maybe cry a little.

Maybe scan the other channels on TV.

Maybe not.

This weekend is going to suck. Again though – thank you Bills for gutting us all throughout the season. It helps us all survive this blackout gutpunch, especially after all your supreme efforts at disemboweling the art of modern era playcalling and execution.

Maybe I’ll catch up on my reading.

If you have any things-to-do suggestions, lemme know in the comments section below. Even though none of you will. Jerks.

On to the blackout Tweet of the Day. Barrister, get us the hell out of this post!

TARP! Aweomse. Wordplay wins the day.

Go Bills/Sabres.

#NHL #Lockout Tweet of the Day

Gary Bettman: everyone’s hostess with the mostest.

Nooooot.

“You want a table? NO TABLE FOR YOU! NO NEGOTIATING TABLES FOR ANYONE!”

OK, 90’s jokes mercifully aside, let’s get on with further stupidity:

This gem was RT’d 628 freakin’ times (as of the writing of this post). Something tells me fans really care deeply about this NHL lockout Twinkie thing right now.

Of course, in a move that can only be described as a labor negotiation punch-in-the-face-line, NHL fans got this news:

The judge overseeing Hostess Brands Inc., while declining to approve the company’s liquidation, asked management and the bakers’ union to enter mediation today to resolve the strike that the maker of Twinkies and Wonder bread said forced it to shut.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain said yesterday at a hearing in White Plains, New York, that there are “serious questions as to the logic behind the decision to strike.” Hostess and the bakers’ union agreed to Drain’s request to enter confidential mediation under his supervision.

Well Bettman, it seems the free market values Twinkies more than your lockout right now. Mission: ACCOMPLISHED! By the time this thing is over, Bettman’s going to be that sad girl on stage covered in buckets of hemoglobin. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU, GARY. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU.

This post is getting creepy.

So… NHL lockout, Twinkies, bad movie analogies…

Did somebody say “first world problems?”

Sigh.

Play us the hell outta’ here, Meshuggah!

No Football Sunday: Things to do!

0

OK, it’s just one thing to do.

But it’s glorious. Or not, depending on your cartoon generation. I’m pretty sure this is for the generation that happened just before Generation X, which pretty much started the whole “let’s name ALL the generations” bullcrap and such.

Whatever. Hit the link.

he man 01 No Football Sunday: Things to do!

He tries so hard for the institution.

LONG LIVE THE LOCKOUT BECAUSE CRAP LIKE THIS IS SOOOO MUCH FUN!

Or we can watch the Concussed Ron Mexico Eagles vs. the Racist-skins. OR, curling on CBC (from the Wayne freaking Gretzky Sports Centre in Brantford, Ontariooooo)! So we do have more than one thing.

And yes, I do think the racist Redskins name is embarrassingly/smallpox blankets racist. Don’t agree? Punch my face in the comments section. Or not, because no one seems to ever care about this topic.

This post started out so light.

Good God, help us.

And help Chan use Spiller inside the 20.

Hey – maybe we can use this time to heal:

 

 

Yea, never gonna’ happen. Enjoy your Sunday… family time!

 

Go Sabres/Bills.

This is getting old.

What else is getting old? Analyzing this trade:

Not sure who is now currently winning that trade. I guess I’ll take broken bones over sticks and stones on my hockey team (whenever that hockey team exists again), so we’ll say the Sabres are still in the trade analysis lead.

We’re 60 days into this nightmare.

Even one of these guys could get the negotiations done in 60 days.

Also: banana!

On to day 61.

Go Sabres.
