#NHL #Lockout Tweet of the Day: #SabreSIM2012!

I clearly need more hashtags in my titles.

Workin’ on it.

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.

It happens.

On with the show:

If you don’t know what the hell this is all about, head on over to Trending Buffalo and check out their efforts with #SabreSIM2012: a PS3 based simulation of the Sabres regular season, including media/blog coverage, game recaps, and everything else to make this silly sad situation silly and actually… fun.

There’s me again!

Of course, not everyone can get “IN THE GAME.

I’m finally sold: Mike Harrington is a real dick sometimes. Also juvenile: when Harrington engages fans and/or bloggers in heated debates over who has more followers.

Not nice, Mike.

I called him out on this whole “not nice” thing, and this is what I got in return:

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.

Go Sabres.
