Somewhere, some time ago, some intrepid soul was enjoying himself on the best day of the week, but he wasn’t fully satisfied. There was something missing in his life; some void that needed to be filled. ”How can I make the best day of the week even better?” he was saying to himself. And then it occurred to him: what if he could convince coffee shops all around the world to hand out a free donut to every customer one day a year? That would make any day just a little bit better, and when it just so happened that this donut day fell on a Friday . . . well, life just doesn’t get better than that.
So here I am, enjoying the free donut I got at Dunkin Donuts this morning on a Friday morning. Hope your day has started off as good as mine has! Let’s get to the links.
You know whose day is NOT starting off as good as mine? That would be the Los Angeles Kings, who lost a close one last night 3-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks. Bleacher report breaks down the game for those of you who missed it.
Speaking of donuts – wouldn’t it be shocking if the Pittsburgh Penguins put a donut up on the Eastern Conference Finals scoreboard by getting swept, 4-0, by the Boston Bruins? Boston seems to be poised to do just that – and more?
People who think that American football has the toughest players in the world have donuts for brains – check out this story to see how tough NHL hockey players REALLY are.
I’ve written an awful lot about the Buffalo Sabres building a culture of winning, and many people assume that in order to do that, you have to land top-tier talent. Well, yes . . . but as Stu Hackel points out, it takes more than just talent to win Lord Stanley’s Cup.
As always, I like to leave you with some Sabres-specific links. Here’s one from Garth over at Hockey Buzz, discussing the possibility of the Sabres’ making a play for the fifth slot in the draft . . .
. . . and my last link of the day is also from Garth, this one about an exciting young goaltender. Enjoy your Donut Day!
