Wow, Firefox is being stupid on me and making me type backwards so now I have to do this on IE. If anyone can help me figure out this problem, I'd be grateful.
Anyways, I think the dream I had last night with Thomas was his way of saying he was sorry for the minus game he had last night.
...Well, Mr. Vanek. I forgive you.
So, the game yesterday. My stepdad and I left my house at around 5 so we could get to the arena early. We got there a little after 6, but even then, the boys hadn't even began warm-ups yet. There was an old Sabres/Penguins game being played (I think the Sabres won 8-4, or something). We got some popcorn and water really fast before we sat down in our seats (section 113), and just chilled until the Sabres came out to practice. I immediately whipped out my camera to get some shots (my pictures are on Facebook!), and I noticed my batteries were dying. I had an extra pair of Energizer batteries in my little camera bag, so I pulled them out and placed them into the camera. Of course, my camera decides to not work so I begin to flip out. My stepdad took the camera and tried to work it, but nothing. By the time I had put the old batteries in and saw that they had a little juice left, the Jumbotron was already getting shots of Teppo and I was very sad. I try and get pictures of Thomas during warmups at every game, and of course my camera had to decide to be stupid.
I took a video of the starting lineup, and maybe I'll get that up on Facebook, too. Went through the anthems and then got ready to watch the game. Halfway through the first period, my mom calls my stepdad's cell because she wanted to talk to me. I picked it up and she asked me to call my friend's phone because they had gotten lost on the way to the arena. This was her first game to go to, by the way. I couldn't hear a thing in the arena, and I had dialed the wrong number at first, so I ran up into the hallway to talk to her. By the time I did that they had already gotten to the arena, haha. So I had to run back down again.
I think the standing ovation to UB was neat. They were up in my section too. I hope I can catch the International Bowl next Saturday because that's when I get back from Florida.
I think the best thing that happened last night (outside of the hockey aspect), was that on my little trip to the women's bathroom, there was an interesting incident. There was a girl in there talking on her cellphone in a powdered blue Sidney Crosby hat. She was about to go into the one stall when she goes 'I have to pay so much for these minutes here, you have no idea!' She went into the stall, and sounds like she's about to cry: "Well, Pittsburgh's losing 1-0 to Buffalo, and...*sighs* I really hope Crosby scores because I got soooooo many pictures with him and everything." This woman a few spots in front of me turned to look at the rest of us and was like 'Oh my God...' It was so funny, haha. And then the girl in the bathroom was like 'I'll talk to you when I get back to Canada!'
...Well duh lady, you didn't know you'd be roaming over here with your phone? Jeez.
After the game, we went to the Sabres store to get the new team photo. If you haven't gotten it yet, do it. You won't be disappointed.
By the way...anyone else having problems with Sabres TV today? The interviews aren't playing any sound, and I'm very disappointed. I don't know about you guys, but I'd like to know Thomas' plans for the holidays so I can squee and 'awww' over how much of a good person and daddy he is, even if what he says doesn't pertain to that.
