Good morning, Buffalo Sabres and NHL fans alike!
I know it was not a full week, but for the most part, we have survived our first week of the new year. How are those 2014 resolutions going for ya? I have two resolutions: to get back in immaculate shape, and to make the Sabre Noise podcast a top priority of mine. I plan on recording this first podcast of 2014 either late tonight or early tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that.
As for getting in shape, I plan to keep right on dancing in my bay window – that ought to do the trick!
Now that I’ve shared that much, on to the links.
