Sabres Knock Off Red Wings

Wait a minute, is this about to be a Buffalo Sabres game recap? What is this, the Buckey Channel? Wisconsin TV? (inside joke, sorry). But yeah, I guess this is a quick blurb about the Sabres game on Tuesday night, which hopefully many of you watched after I reminded you to.

I, however, was not one of those people. This would have been the first night I could watch my newly beloved Sabres in action, as they were on Versus for the first of about eight times this season. Instead, I watched baby bro in his high school soccer playoff game, and good news, they won. I actually had plans to watch the Sabres last weekend, but apparently we don't get NHL Center Ice on my cable provider, which doesn't really make sense, but whatever.

I've been trying to follow hockey the best I can after I declared that I was going to follow it this season, but it is always hard trying to immerse yourself in a new sport (but hey, if I can do it for wrestling, then I can do it for hockey). I'm in a fantasy hockey league, but I've been half-assing it so far mainly because I've been short on time, but for real mainly because I have a hard time getting into fantasy leagues that aren't for money.

I'll have to get into it more though, because there are few better ways to get into a sport than to follow it in fantasy. I mean, no way in hell I know who a guy like Fabricio Oberto was two years ago if I didn't play fantasy basketball. Still, I think the best way to league this league as quickly as possible would be to buy NHL 10 for our PlayStation3, which I have every intention of doing this weekend.

Until I get more immersed in the league, I'll just follow box scores and maybe pop on a Sabres blog here and there as I try to get to know my team. About the only guy who I really did know, Thomas Vanek, scored two big goals in the Sabres 6-2 win over Detroit on Tuesday, but he suffered an upper body injury and is going to miss a few weeks.

Don't worry, you won't see Sabres posts after every game, but I do plan to check in once a week to let you know how my following hockey endeavor is progressing. Just one of the many things I'll try to do in an effort to continually make this site better. Could one of those things be weekly reviews about WWE's Monday Night Raw coming in the near future? (Don't worry, I'm only kidding. Or am I?)
