For the first time in ages, I just shut off a Sabres game well before it was over. Well, not really, it was over shortly into the 3rd when the Habs scored their 4th goal, which is when I turned it off.
I'm tired of being an eternal optimist. I'm tired of caring. The Sabres could come back and win this game 13-4. I honestly don't care. The power play is awful. The defense is a complete and utter joke. There is no secondary scoring. And there are no consequences for any of it. Tyler Myers continues to cost this team dearly on a nightly basis. Lindy Ruff refuses to bench Myers. GM Darcy Regier refuses to fire Lindy. Ted Black refuses to fire GMDR. And I refuse to care anymore.
I'm embarrassed that I took the first game of the season as such a positive sign. Duped again.
I'll continue to watch when I can and if there's nothing better on TV, but unless something drastically changes, I'm not going to spend the energy on actually caring. I've got a list of other stuff to worry about that seems to grow larger by the day. Buffalo sports teams are no longer on that list until the teams themselves start caring again.
