Hot dog hot dog hot diggity dog!
Ah, nuts – sorry about that, Sabre Noise fans! I’ve got that ridiculous Mickey Mouse Clubhouse song stuck in my head this morning because it was playing on the Disney Jr. channel before I left for work. It’s hard to tell which gets more screen time in my household: Buffalo Sabres games, or Disney shows and movies. What with the catchy theme music to MSG’s coverage of Sabres games, and all the peppy songs I hear in my kids’ TV shows, it’s a party in my head!
But no, you’re not invited.
You are invited to enjoy today’s NHL – related links, however! So I have that much for ya, at least.
Twenty-two teams battled last night. Four escaped with overtime or shootout wins. Get your scores and game recaps here. [NHL.com] I’ve abandoned TSN as my source for scores, since I don’t find their site to be set up very well.
I have not abandoned TSN entirely, though – I need my weekly dose of “C’Mon, Ref!” [TSN]
