Faceoffs... OR To boo or not to boo.... OR.. Vanek's ice time... OR Miller swearing... OR Puck possession forwards... OR Some ******* in Colorado we should trade for that I've never heard of... OR Grigomania sitting in the press box.... OR Elite defenseman vs. elite goalie... OR How the Sabres are the biggest joke this side of the Hockey Heaven Purgatory. Bingo. I think I'll go with that one. The Buffalo Sabres are so pathetic that for a guy who thrives on arguing and putting people in their place about silly hot takes, I am a beaten man today. I can't muster the energy anymore to argue about insignificant things like the "Hot takes" I just mentioned. WHY? Because we've done this before. We've done the booing/Cheering argument, pro and con.  I've done the elite goalie vs. elite defenseman argument. I've done the effort argument. I've done the Lindy/Darcy or chicken/egg argument. We've done the Vanek ******* pieces. I've done the glass half full or half empty discussion. I got Matthew blogging about chocolate factories while I'm putting together a piece about the legacy of Fake Darcy and his childhood. Yes, we have all lost our ****** mind because the team has done this to us. The have become the ultimate writer's block for people who aren't looking for traffic scores. Maybe I can write a hot take about 5 ways the Sabres can turn their season around. Hooray for milquetoast writing! Maybe it is because I remember a lot more arguments or blanked statements made by us as a fan base, is the reason why I can't recycle old material. There aren't any more new hot takes involving the Sabres. We have become a fanbase that reaches into the overused hot topics for talk radio on a boring Tuesday in June when nothing is going on.  "Goalie/Elite defenseman" argument is nothing more than "your least favorite player in Buffalo history" hot take. We don't even get to the point of talking about the games anymore. Instead, we just reach into old recycle topics about loving Vanek or hating Stafford. Hell, go into our search engine to the right of this piece and just start searching. It is a bible filled with useful takes that are being argued today. Hell, all I have to do is just rearrange a few word, add a new metaphor or two, and throw in some swear words. Presto! Hot take be coming! I don't blame us anymore for wanting to rip each others' heads off. I use to just pick a side and go with it for fun or for the sense of amusement. I'd just kill your take and say you are filled with hot air or an apologist. Now, I just pity us. What is the point in all of this? These are just a bunch of arguments to distract us from the boring blueball life known as the Buffalo Sabres. I've reached for so many of Terry Pegula or Lindy Ruff's imaginary brass rings, that it has become exactly that..Just imaginary. And since they are imaginary, we have nothing better to do than argue ourselves into oblivion. I'm done with this team for the year. Someone needs to get a machine gun and reenact the police station massacre in Terminator. Kill everyone. For our sake, change needs to happen because this just isn't fun anymore. The arguments, the discussions, this ****** piece of diatribe crap... needs to stop. Stop worrying about the runs to 8th, people. The run we have to worry about is how this franchise has been run into the ground. This is our hockey team..The Buffalo Sabres..the team we are going to hockey hell for...
