Let me start today by saying that the Sabre Noise podcast has been submitted to, and accepted by, the iTunes store, so my goal of global dominance for the Sabre Noise website is closer to being accomplished!!!!  Mu ha ha ha!

Also: I really like doing the point system for our fan chatter threads (and no, it has nothing to do with the fact that CC and I tied for the lead last night!), but will have to actually pay attention the next time I attempt to tally the final scores!  I believe I am going to hand out a Fansided t-shirt to the lucky reader who wins the most of these fan chatter competitions, so if you have not joined the fun yet, do so this Sunday when the Sabres play the Capitals!

Okay: enough about me.  Onto the links!

    Puck Bunnies!

    Z cannot do what Scott does. Raw intimidation. He will stand up for his team mates, but in the pugilistic field, hes ‘ entertaining ‘ but not necessarily ‘ winning ‘.
