There’s no crying in fantasy hockey

In one weekend in Fantasy Hockey I dropped 66 points. I went from second place to last place. That’s in a league of 20 teams. I freaked out, and was THIS close to crying. My nephew was laughing at me. My friend who got me in the league tired to calm me down. It didn’t work, this is no one’s fault but my own. I tend to obsess and I take this as a personal failing.

Sabres are in last place, or they were, in their last game they got 2 points so there is one team below them. The team they played last night. They were the only two teams who hadn’t won any games yet, the game ended with a tie and the win was in a shoot-out, so Buffalo only got 2 points. Currently Buffalo has two points and the Bruins have 2 points. In the game currently being played, Boston is tied with Detroit, with 7:10 to go.

My case of the stupids has extended to ticket buying. I was on a ticket resale site that I had a coupon for and didn’t pay attention to where the game was, I am used to buying tickets for baseball games, with baseball games the location is indicated by the time listed last. I wasn’t paying attention. I ended up with a ticket to First Niagara Center instead of Madison Square Garden. You know what that means. ROAD TRIP!! It also means that until March 2015, I have to save every penny. Sometimes I suck at life.

On the plus side, I have made arrangements to get tickets to two Devils vs Sabres games in New Jersey. A Path train ride away. I only have to put up with the “You Suck” chant.


Season Opener

Today is the first day of hockey for the 2014-2015 season. The Sabres didn’t start tonight but my other team the Bruins did and they won. For those of you who say, I can’t root for two teams I say, Yes I can. In fact I have it on good authority that only team you can’t be a fan of along with the Bruins is the Canadiens. And I’m not a Canadiens fan.

This is just a quick post before I check the line-ups for my fantasy teams. Since the Bruins won, I’m a little looped right now since I drink Fireball whiskey for each goal and then one for the win.

Now I am listening to Vancouver vs. Calgary. I got this cool app for listening, that is it would be cool if all the team feeds worked. Maybe they will get all sorted out as the season goes along. I have also noticed, that the more I watch hockey, the more I can follow the play on the radio. All this means is, I need to watch more hockey.
