Actually, this is not the tweet of the day. This is here for comparison purposes, and also for educational purposes. Since you now have loads of time on your hands (lots and lots of sad, lonely time) not watching hockey, go ahead and look up “Godwin’s Law.” It’s an awesomely fulfilling way to kill a stupid online argument (of which there are about a billion a day). Also, you will know what it means when I cite it when you are having a stupid online argument with me.
I am not a self-appointed expert. I am a self-appointed Internet argument MEDIATOR Mike, get it right.
In the end, Mike and I had a nice chat about trolling (likely after he saw my follower count was higher than 200), about responding to profane tweets without playing the role of the Twitter bully (i.e. acting with professional leadership), and about how social medias can get everyone all antsy in the pantsy.
Godwin’s Law was never cited.
Where the hell was I going with this post?
Oh yea – how about that SIM account pic? That’s my first avi that I used on Twitter. Warm fuzzy memories. I was new to the Twit-game then, and shy, having to hide my emotion behind gigantic glasses. So, which Avi wins? Original Avi, or the current Windswept-Pre-NHL-Lockouts-Me?
Whatever. All of the above are tweets of the day. Everyone wins the lockout tweet of the day thingy.
I need to get the hell out of this ridiculous lockout post now.

The MSM (mainstream media) is going to be inundating you with updates from the NHLPA on how much money the NHL is costing the players, and with updates from the NHL with how much the NHLPA is costing teams. Greedy bastards.
Still, “greed works,” (so long as we don’t mind the occasional recession/depression/lockout, and the lockout WILL end, eventually. Eventuaaaaaaly). But hockey is happenin’! Just today the Sabres themselves tweeted that they are currently installing the fan bricks at the FNC:
Amazing how hokey-jokey-hockey-related goodtimes are still happening amongst the Sabres Twitterati.
Still, if you haven’t bought a (golden? They’re pretty damn pricey) brick to help build the FNC while the sport locks you out, you still can think about Amerks tix at the FNC or a new Steve Ott jersey – or you can put your wallet back in your pocket, and then pull that wallet out again to purchase nothing more than that backyard rink you’ve always dreamed of.
Lockout/KHL/Euro leagues say those boards need to extend to the fences, guys. Also, nice freakin’ Zamboni. Love the leaf/ice collector attachment.
We’re on the verge of regular season games being cancelled.
The season is currently in jeopardy.
This has happened before, and recently – 3 lockouts and a strike since ’92. But who’s counting? Those are absurd stats. Those are abusive stats. And yet we (the fans) come back for more (and buy FNC bricks)?
I’ll see the real hockey fans at Lowe’s this season – perhaps the greatest NHL season (since 2005) of all – The Season of the Backyard Rink.
What to do with all that $ fans are saving due to the #NHL#Lockout? This might just be The Year of the Backyard Rink. pic.twitter.com/mLsjKqBp
In the end, the outcome of the lockout is not up to fans. Fans, however, will choose where their hockey money goes. Would you rather hold onto your dollars for Sabres tix-n-merch-n-such, or put your money aside for a glorious, awesome, possibly once-in-a-lifetime backyard rink?
