The Barrister of Dear God, Why Us? Sports
@TimothyMcGuire Just chiming in... Did Bill Hoppe even ask a question? Maybe. He had an infenstimal impact on the event. And Hamilton was an idiot at the presser, too, and can't spell or use appropriate grammar. Ever. So his well-intentioned work is typically moot.

@JeremyDanielWortman yes. Why? If you're going to troll it, I would be delighted.
@JeremyDanielWortman Yes! Play harder because, goddammit, we derive so much of our self worth from the success of our sports teams and they are making us look like chumps!!
And, yes! The Sabres poor play is totally based on a failure to attack, rather than giving up goals when our defensemen pinch and leave Miller out to dry! Totally right. NAILED IT.
@TrendingBuffalo well then, I can appreciate the self-reflective tone. I'm probably at 4. But slowly gaining ground on Stage 5. I can almost taste it.

The irony of this following Brad Riter's "you can all go to hell" piece is stunning. Even if I do agree to a point.
@shooter mcdavid that is where the butthurtiest of butthurt sabres fans chill out. It's a weird place sometimes.

your/you're... well, my comment deserves to get ignored for that one. dammit. I'm the worst.
God, give a town a ha;f dozen championships in a decade and suddenly they're throwing stones at butthurt fans. (no clue if that's even accurate. don't care).
Selling that picture is bullshit, though. Maybe Sabres fans would love a picture of Kaleta doing stupid shit, too, but doesn't make it right. It's classless either way. And, lately, your fan base has enough classlessness to go around, so glass houses and what not. Which isn't to say you're not right. Just a hypocrite like the rest of us.
Oh, and the Pacioretty hit still ranks as one of the worst I've seen. Tell me Chara didn't mean to do exactly what he did when you're spouting off on how great of a player he is. You're right. He's great. Great enough to know exactly what he was doing and like it.
Your welcome for the page hits. You can repay me with a nice handy if you're up for it.
@NicholasMendola I disagree, is all. I think Kevin farily points out that both Grigs and Hecht could fit on team. I think Lindy is not under fire at all except amongst sportswriters itching for a story and fans, both of whom the team can casually ignore on Ruff's status. I think Sully's piece is basically one giant hedge that allows Sully to seem right no matter what.

Jerry Sullivan is the King of Mailing It In. He fits the mold of sportswriter that inspired FJM, and deserves being taken out to the woodshed every time he thinks his writing talents can carry him through all the lazy research, cliches and generalizations.

My favorite highlight of the game was Pinzone getting trolled by the 60 year old woman at the end of the bar. She was ready to drop Mario Williams' fridge on your ass for wearing that Yankees hat at the "unofficial Mets pregame bar." And I would've let her.

Sad to think that the genius that is the passing offense which makes Fitz look palatable will probably be the thing that sinks them in the end. Well, that and all that wacky organized crime in the parking lot.
@mechaphil Frankenjerseys are horrendous. Especially when representing a union of teams that have no business being united -- teams that despise each other, for instance. Possible exceptions include Mama Miller with her Ryan/Drew mashup, but they are rare.
