I hope your summer is going as jazzy as mine.
Now that the UFA frenzy is officially behind us, we have all the time in the world to propose Sabres line combinations (well, Lindy will change those up 18 times a game, so that’s pointless), head over to Capgeek.com’s Cap Calculator to see which players we would put to the axe (but that’s already getting out of hand), check out the Sabres section of HF Boards to see what the hottest topic is (to insult each other’s mothers over), discuss the Bills…
…OK, forget the Bills for now.
So what to do? The choice is clear! It’s time to celebrate a triumphant return to BSN’s “Summer Awards.”
I know you’re sweatin’, so let’s jump right in the fun pool. Today’s award is called “The BizNasty,” named for everyone’s favorite NHL Twitterer, Paul Bisonnette. If you like pictures of PT Cruisers, emphatic and random homeless person updates, and the occasional insight into “chicks,” then follow him at @BizNasty2point0. He’s quite the sensation, and so was the Twitter for Sabres fans last season.
Sabres Game Chat was a revelation for a lot of folks last season, and there were some Twit-related events that really took this fan base to a higher level. I am not sure exactly what that level is, but it is somewhere between “stronger union” and “angry mob” (depending on whether the Sabres win or lose, but more on that later).
The award goes to the Twitter event that entertained us the most. The winner receives a free Groupon for some hair salon or whatever, so please, take your vote seriously – we don’t give away free coupons for nothing.
Without further ado, here are our candidates:
1. Sabres’ “Fan Tunes” backfires, fans tortured via very non-elaborate Twitter hoax: we’ll tell the brunt of this story in pictures:
