|Hockey Night in Buffalo!
Big game tonight for the Sabres. They are only five points back of the Sens and are finally even in games. The Sabres played a great game Thursday againts Philly. The crowd should be in the game tonight. Miller has been playing amazing it the last few games, and really since he came back from injury. It is a real shame he is not on the olmpic team, because he is the best US goalie. Maybe I am jumping ahead of myself, but I think he is one of the best in the NHL right now. Hasek, never heard of him.
I am watching the end of the Stars vs. Blues on NBC. Man, those are bad uniforms the stars have for third jerseys. And why is St.Louis wearing white at home anyway?
So how about those Toronto Maple Leafs. One win in what eleven games? Break out the golf clubs.
Oh, now we got the Pens vs. Islanders, because the Blues won in OT. You know NBC had to put the Pens on so they could get Crosby on.
Non hockey stuff. I have been having a lot of dreams that I remember the last week or so. Most of the dreams involve Jess. Most of them involve something wrong with her where she is dying. So I guess they are nightmares, more then dreams if there is a difference. I don't know, I do miss her.
Go Sabres! Current Mood: calm

What a fucking idiot. I don't want to say too much, but I swear some people are really really stupid. It is scary when the really really stupid people are also really big assholes. It can be a deadly combination. Oh well, I am just glad that part of my life is over. When you look back on it, it seemed good but it really was not. Thankfully I have met much better people to be friends with. But I can't believe this assholes latest stunt. This takes the cake. Current Mood: calm

This weekend it is off to Rochester for the Bandits vs Chickenhawks. I really hate that team. The Bandits are off to a 2-0 start after beating the Rock twice. I really can't wait for the game. My dad, Adam and Tommy are going too, so it should be a blast.
Wow, I am feeling a hell of a lot better. I have had this cold for like a month. I usually don't like to take anything, but I broke down and bought some to take and I feel better. Hopefully I can feel better quick.
It seems like it has been forever since the Sabres played at home. I have to wait till a week from Thursday for the next home game. But Toronto has been losing, so everything is great.
Now it is time to bitch. I am so sick of this chick I work with bitching about everyone. She finds the smallest problem with a person and turns it into something that is bigger then it should be. She was complaining when she got lunch for everyone that this one guy gave her only $5.75 instead of $6 even if his meal only cost five something. It is no big deal, he paid for his meal, but she thought he should only give her dollars. She just made it sound like he shot someone. And she hates everyone in her department. Oh well, I don't want to go on forever. Current Mood: cold

Friday's Bandits game in Toronto kicked ass. It is so much easier walking out of a building when you are rooting for the road team when they win. The game was back and forth all game long, but Buffalo took a three goal lead late and held on to a one goal lead till Steenhuis got an empty netter. 13-11 win for the Bandits. So I am still perfect in the ACC. I have been there three times and the Bandits won three times. This Saturday is the home opener, and then another roadtrip to Rochester for the 28th. Granted I don't really consider Rochester a roadtrip, but it a blast because of all the Bandit fans that make the trip. But I can't say the Bandits have the same luck at the BCA as they do at the ACC.
Sabres won 10-1 Saturday. I don't even know what to say about it, other then the Kings had a really bad day and the Sabres had a really good day.
I am freezing right now. There is something wrong with the heat in the house, so I am wrapped in the Cleveland Indians blanket that Jess and her family got me.
I bought a Dale Jr toque (for those of you who don't speak Canadian, it is a knit hat) today. It is reversible, but there is a tag on the inside. Now it was not hard to remove the tag, but why put a tag there when that could be on the outside. Current Mood: cold

The other day I drove Jessie's little brother home from the UB basketball game. He might only be twelve but the kid is one of the smartst people I know. He maybe half my age but I can learn a lot from the kid. He just explans the world to me. He can explan things to me in a coulpe seconds which I have been trying to figure out for months. I think he just has a feel for people but he knows what makes people tick, or atleast a certain person. And after this week, I have more respect for that certain person then anyone else in the world. While I hear stories from the people of how they take advantage of people, she only wanted attention and love. Current Mood: calm

I am so freaking bored right now. But it is back to work tomorrow after having a week and a half off. It will be nice in a way, and it sucks in a way. No more getting up at 10, it is back to 6 am when the alarm goes off.
The Sabres game was fun yesterday with Sharon and Kevin, but the Sabres lost. How can they keep losing to Florida I don't understand. I do wish Jessie could have gone too, but she had to pick up Tommy from hockey, so that was impossible.
I want to take Jessie to a hockey game around her birthday, but the NHL is on olympic break then. The closest game is the 11th, but she might already have tickets for that game. The Bandits play closer to her b-day, but I think she would rather go to hockey. Maybe I should wait til March to take her. Current Mood: bored

There is less then seven hours left in 2005. I can't say it was great, I can't say it was bad. I had some bad moment, I had the best time in my life for a while in the summer. The year started off kinda shitty. I heard Aurora was pregnent. I was still taking to her at the point even if we had broken up months ealier. But at that point I figured it was a good time to end anytype of relationship with her. And I must admitt that was the right thing to do for me. She has really screwed up her life and god only knows where she is now.
Things were pretty uneventful until April. You see when Aurora broke up with me, I was a very bitter person. I did not want to have anything go do with women. Kevin at the baseball games would point out certain girls, and I would look, but it meant nothing. But I meet the one beer vendors daughter and I kinda liked her. She worked at the ballpark and would come up on her brakes. But she was only 17 and going into her senior year in high school at that point in 2004. So I did think much of it. When this baseball season started we got to know each other more and started flirting with each other. The one game Jess was not working but came to Kerri also came too. After about ten minutes of Jess sitting with us Kerri leans over and says "I think Jess likes you" but I said "no" even thought I knew she did. And then me and Jess started calling each other and all that stuff. I felt a heck of a lot better when Tim (Jess' dad) came up the one day and asked "can you keep the phone calls to my daughter under and hour" in his joking kinda way. I had no idea how he was going to react that a guy six hears older was dating his daughter. I had a blast when me and Jess were dating. We went to Scranton for a baseball game for my birthday. And it broke my heart when she broke up with me. But I still am friends with her. And her family still treat me great. I went to Cleveland with them in September and still hang out with them. They have became like family to me. Heck I am heading over in a few hours to spend time with them. The only thing that hurts is Jess has a new boyfriend. She still talks to me and treats me well, but I do wish it worked out between us. And I still have a small little hope that someday we will get back together. Some times her parents complain about her because she can be moody, and she is not like the boys. But she is a great girl, and I would do anything for her and I truely still love her.
And that is about it for 2005. The Sabres are playing great, and I hope that contuines in 2006. You never know what is going to happen. If you would have told me at the start of 2005 I was going to fall in love with Jess and have her family treat me so well I would have thought you were nuts. So it's on to 2006 and hopefully some good times. Current Mood: anxious

I have way too many power cords. I got power cords for my lap top, I have two power cords for my new cell phone (car and regular) and I got a power cord for my hands free devise for my cell phone. It is just a mess, power cords everywhere. Plus I got the cord for my digital camera around here too. You know, there is way too much technology in the world. The only thing I don't have is an MP3 player. I still have records, the way music should be listened too. I do have CDs, but have never upgraded after that.
So I am at the Sabres game tonight and this guy sitting a couple of seats away from me asks the chick he was with "Sabretooth's a lion right". I wanted to ask him when was the last time he saw a lion with tiger strips and two large teeth? But I was nice and only leaned over to Erica and told her about it. What a game it was too. The Sabres trailed 3-1 after the first period, and then 3-2 after the second but came back to win 6-3. And it is always fun when Erica comes to the games. She goes to Hamilton College so she only gets to come around holidays. But it is fun because she knows more about hockey then about anyone I know. She played defense for the womens team at the college for a while, so she knows a lot about the game. Not that you had to play to know the game, because Jessie and Kerri know hockey well from reading solitare's journal she seems to too. But I dated a certain girl who I will not mention that thought she knew everything about hockey and she knew nothing.
HAPPY BOXING DAY! Current Mood: content

Wow, at the hockey game Saturday Sue (Jess's mom) and Brian (Jess's 12 year old brother) moved down to sit next to me seeing theri seats were in the 300 level. So at the game Sue said I could go to Brian's hockey party if I wanted to, it was for family but I am like family anyway. That made me feel good. Then Brian told me he did a report on me, someone he admires. You know when you hear stuff like that you really feel good. I do wish things had worked about better with Jess. I still like her and would do anything for her, but I can't force her to date me again. I think back on the time we were together and I had a great time. Where else am I ever going to find a girl that for my birthday takes me to Scranton for a Bisons game. But hey, we are still friends, so that is cool. And her family treats me great.
I can't wait for Christmas to be over. I got so much stuff piled in my room right now. I just want to get it out to the people it is going to. Christmas is really not that fun anymore. I don't mind getting people gifts, but the whole wrapping them, thinking of what to get people, and all of that is a pain in the ass. Plus going into stores is not my idea of fun when there is fifty million people in them. Current Mood: content

Well hockey season is in full swing and been going okay. The Sabres started off well but have not played too good in the past few weeks. They did beat Toronto, and that is all that really matters. If they went 8-74, I would be happy as long as all eight wins were againts the Leafs. The worst part about the Sabres season is Jess brings her new boyfriend to the games. It is kinda hard seeing a girl you like dating someone else, but what am I to do about it. He seems like an okay guy and all. And me and Jessie are still friends so I guess I just want to be a good friend to her.
Work is really pissing me off. I can't stand any of them anymore. How did I get suck working with three women, who all care about everyone elses business. I just wish they would mind there own business. And quit trying to hook me up with somebody. I don't want a gf unless Jess were to want to go out with me and I don't see that. I am happy single, but they don't seem to get that.
You can tell the NHL is back, I am finding myself saying "eh" an "aboot" and other Canadian terms again. Current Mood: cranky

Ontario has banned Pit Bulls because they are deemed dangerous. Okay, do you think Pit Bulls are any more dangerous then any other dog if raised to be dangerous. If you raise Pit Bulls right they will be the same as your Golden Retriever that nobody deems dangerous. I hope the next time someone other type of dog bites someone that they are banned in Ontario. I don't get it, Canada is a country that has talked about making weed legal, yet they ban certain breeds of dogs. What a screwed up country. Current Mood: annoyed

I am getting sick, which sucks. Anyway on Friday I learned that my grandmother had passed away, so Monday my father, Debby, and I made the four hour ride down to New Milford PA for the fureral. I it was the first funeral I have ever been do. It was very akward because I have never been to a funeral and it was the first time in my life I have ever seen my dad cry. He was not balling or anything, but his eyes were read, which I don't blame him because it was his mother. I really did not know grandma Shirley too well because she was in PA and me in Buffalo. She was a small lady, I don't think she was even 5 foot ball. I think that thing that I will remember the most is even when she was 80, she still had her mind and had all the wise cracks. Some people when they get old can not remember anything, she she still had her witts. She was in a wheel chair if she went anywhere, but she still had the one liners. It will be really weird next time I go to PA and she won't be there. I don't think it sunk in for me this time because there was so much family, but next time it will be a bit odd. Current Mood: blah

Saturday there was an article in the Buffalo news about Kerry Supports/Bush haters and how they are dealing with the election results. It said some are moving to Canada, which I say "cool, more room for me, just don't forget to give up your US citizenship when you leave". Then at the end of the article it has some woman quoted saying that Bush supporters should not be saying leave the country but asking how we can make the democrats/Bush hatters happy? Why, why should the people ask the minority what they what. They lost the election, more people voted for W, so your ideas are not what the people want, so why should we care what you think. If you don't like it, go to Canada or France.
Another thing, there were war protesters passing out fliers at Buff State today. Okay, if people want to protest that is fine, that is there right, but go stand out on a corner, not in a college campus. When people are trying to get to their car they should not have to walk by morons protest the war in Iraq. Current Mood: content
I am so fucking tired right now. Current Mood: tired

|Proud to be an American
Well the American people have spoken and reelected George W. Bush and Democrats/Bush haters are going nuts. On the range there is a politics section and they are all going nuts. "How are we going to live the next four years" and just some off the wall shit they are coming up with. They are already blaming Kerry for Bush being reelected. While he was a shitty candidate maybe they will realize some day that Bush is doing the right thing with the war in Iraq and the war on terror in general.Then my aunt called pissed off saying "I hope you and Kevin (my cousin, her son) are happy when you are drafted". When will people realize there is going to be NO draft. The Democrats were just trying to scare people into voting for them. The best thing is that Robert Redford, Sharon Stone and Larry Flint are all leaving the country. Maybe they can dig up Michael Moore from whatever rock he is under and take his fat ass with them. Kinda weird we have not heard from him since the election. Also please take Al Frankin with you, he was never funny to begin with. Johnny Depp is probably banging his head off the Eiffel Tower as we speak, because he split along time ago. Current Mood: optimistic

|"Can I get me a huntin license?"
Well that was a shitty weekend. The Bills lost, Notre Dame lost, Rusty fell from second to tenth with a couple laps to go, Jr hit everything in sight, and the Red Sox are halfway home to breaking The Curse.
But what made the weekend really mad was a piece of news I got Saturday night. I am not going to repeat what was told to me out of respect for a certain person, but I am still mad when I think of it. Mad is not a strong enough word, but no word is. There is an individual who I hated, but now this person went from asshole to scum of the earth.I don't even know how a person could do this, or how anyone could forgive this person. Anyway, no more on that, I am getting too worked up.
BTW, on a totally different topic, John Kerry is an idiot. Did anyone hear him when he went for a hunting license in Ohio. "Can I get me a huntin license?". What the fuck, can I get me? So the guy thinks all hunters can't speak the English language and he thinks he has to be on the peoples level. And he claims he goes hunting, yet he borrowed the hunting jacked and gun and would not carry the duck "he" shot. Kerry said he was too tired from watching the Red Sox game the night before. Well, if he is elected President, we better make sure he goes to bed early. First he said he voted for funding the troops in Iraq, but he voted againts it. When asked why he said he did, he said he was tired from being up late the night before. Now he can't carry a dead duck because he was up late. How can a man run for President if he can not function if he is up late the night before. What happens if there is a terrorist attack, like Sept 11, and he was up late then night before, is he going to do anything or is he going to have a problem? I am not going to take about Edwards, who is going to make people in wheel chairs walk. Please vote Bush. Current Mood: annoyed

I had a great time with Aurora in Toronto on Friday. I am not going to give a play by play of all that happened, but it was all good. The only bad thing is that I wish I could spend more time with her, a lot more time with her. I would say she had fun too. And the Jays won the game, but the Yankees played a bunch of minor leaguers, who I saw playing for Columbus againts the Bisons. No A-Rod, no Jeter, no Bernie Williams, Matsui only had one at bat. But I wanted to see the Jays win anyway because I hate the Yankees, so it is all good.
Speaking of baseball, Go Angels, beat the BoSox
And go Twinkies, beat the Yanks. Current Mood: nostalgic
