NHL / Buffalo Sabres / Sabre Noise fans, I cannot believe it is already the first of December.
It seems like, just a few days ago, it was Thankisgiving and . . . wait a minute. It WAS just a few days ago that we had Thanksgiving. Huh. We really don’t get anywhere near enough time to enjoy that holiday before the Christmas season is upon us; in fact, the Christmas season pretty much makes Thanksgiving a tiny blip on the radar. Nevertheless, it’s December, so I hope you are ready for snow, sleet, cold wind . . . and today’s links!

Happy December first, all!
