Game Preview #81 - Out Of [Blanks] To Give

New, comments

Yep.

Blue Jackets at Sabres - 7:00 PM
Game Faceoff

First and foremost, sorry this is late. But, I'm just about out of F's to G. My GAF is nearing zero. Who am I kidding? It's been at zero for awhile. But that's no excuse. You deserve better.

But I will not give you "better". I will, instead, look back at the Game #81 preview from two seasons ago. You know, the game right after that team clinched its playoff spot. That will be fun. Here's the money quote:

It's going to be kinda cool, actually. Both teams with something to play for, but not so desperate as to cause liver damage in their fan-bases... I can get on board for that. Meaningful regular season hockey that doesn't carry the weight or agony of missing the playoffs. I could get used to this!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
