Funny and so typical

For your humor today I thought I would share what the man of our house bought me as a gift for my birthday yesterday.  Mind you we have been together since 1997 and have 2 beautiful children.  Over the years, I have learned to adjust to the Mothers day card that says Happy Birthday crossed out as it was a grab and go mistake, or the size XL bought online for a Christmas gift but in a childs XL not adult, and even the wonderful gift of a cluster ring bought on a late night TV jewelry show as he thought it was pretty and it would be if I was in my 90’s.  But yesterdays gift really took the cake.

First off, I do love a good hand lotion and have used the hand lotion above in the past.  And while I work like a man most of the time on our farm, I am not a man so the Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap and Lotion really don’t interest me.

Ah well there’s always next year 🙂

What’s a Sabres fan to do??

That is the question in our house right now.  I will spare you “non” hockey fans all the details, but if you are a NHL follower, you know our horrible predicament this year.  While we mourn the end of our season, as horrible as it was, there’s confusion.  WHO DO WE ROUTE FOR NOW??? 

Normally during a hockey season you may lose one or two players.  For us, we’ve lost more than I can keep track of.  We lost some of our favorite players over the past few years and then we lost our favorite coach, goalie, center, wing, and today we lost some assistant coaches.  While you can deal with loss, this has been overwhelming.  The only saving grace for me (and my son) is we saw Zemgus Girgenson’s first game and we were hooked before most fans even knew his name.  We have enjoyed watching this kid and his crazy moves all season (hence his nickname, Crazy Eyes.  We nickname all our favorites).  We may be a farm family but we love our hockey and we will NOT (can not in this City) be a fair weather fan!

So back to our dilemma…who do we route for?  We loved Ryan Miller and Steve Ott so it could be the Blues, but we also miss Pominville so maybe the Wild.  But what about our beloved Lindy Ruff….how can we NOT route for Dallas??  But wait….what about the man we have watched for years and have more of his jersey’s than anyone, VANEK.  So now we have to like a big rival team as we can’t let Vanek down. 

I am hoping the sports God will shine down on us and let at least one of our guys win the cup!!  They may be gone but they are still a Buffalo Sabre in our hearts!! 

Hope you enjoy some of our Sabres pictures through the years!!
