Sunday funday!

Truer words were never spoken, as today I will be celebrating the third birthday of my youngest son, Sean!  You know I’m in a celebratory mood, then, and nothing – not even the absolute joke of a name that the NHL slapped on the geographically-challenged Metropolitan division – can ruin my mood!  Let’s get festive!

The ultimate party in sports is set to place in Sochi, Russia in 2014: the Winter Olympics!  Everyone has an opinion on which players should play for Team USA – here’s one of them. [Puck Daddy]

And lest we neglect Team Canada, here’s that piece, too! [Puck Daddy]

I missed this the other day, but it’s still worth a read: the most overpaid players in hockey. [Bleacher Report] Yep – there’s a Buffalo Sabres player on there!  One guess who.

Congratulations go out to Drew Stafford and his new bride!  Relive one of his greatest moments in hockey here. [Hockey Buzz]

Will someone just sign Jaromir Jagr already, to get him out of the news?  Seems like New Jersey is close! [The Sporting News]

We here at Sabre Noise will be doing a month-by-month analysis of the Buffalo Sabres 2013-2014 schedule, but some people have more free time on their hands, so here’s a good starting point for you!  [Die By The Blade]

Party like it’s your birthday today, Sabres fans!  And hey – let me know if it is so I can give you a shout-out on Twitter!
