Some Links and Tweets

by Ryan

I’ve had a list of things to talk about that keeps getting longer and longer, so it’s about time I put another links post together.

– Word on the street is that most NHL media guides will be in PDF form this year. I know Washington has theirs ready if you’re interested, and it’s only a matter of time until the Sabres get their act together and release theirs. They’re missing out on my ten bucks by not selling print editions (Damn you, Paul Gaustad!), but a PDF will do, I suppose. Right now they have a button for it on their website, but I get this when I click it.

Get on that, Kevin Snow.

– Now that it’s okay to love Terrell Owens again, I think we should all take a closer look at the products he endorses. You’ll see something on this later in the week, trust me.

– Last week the big Sabres news was the signing of Tyler Ennis, known to most Sabres fans as “not tall Tyler.” Despite his relative anonymity at this point in his career as a Sabre, he sure does have big fans in juniors. Check this little bit of artwork out:

Why yes, that’s him on the cover of NHL10.

– Speaking of prospects, Sabres Prospects has a nice post about the toughness that’s developing with some of the new players in the pipeline for the Sabres. I’ve got to admit, it’s nice to have Sabres links to talk about again. Won’t you agree?

– I’m not sure what’s more unbelievable, the fact that the Buffalo News paid someone to collect Bills-related Tweets and Facebook wall posts, or the fact that I didn’t make the cut. Yeah, I think I’m going with the first one. Jebus.

– Andrew Peters scored a goal yesterday. No really, that happened. He’s been playing with the Devils the last few weeks in the hopes that he won’t have to live in a van down by the Niagara River this winter. Seriously, best of luck Andrew. We’re hoping he makes the team.

– I know I’ve already linked to Twitter four times in this post, but if you’re on Twitter you simply have to follow Thurman Thomas. Hilarious.

– Also, if you’re having trouble catching Bills games and need to take a second look, NFL.com finally has you covered. It’s a bit pricey, but if you’re that into watching film of the other teams, this is your best bet.

– Special note to Hamburg: calm the hell down. You’re making the rest of us look bad

    There’s one more link you have to click to get to the media guide. On the page you linked to above, scroll down to where it says “click here to download the full media guide”. That tripped me up at first too.

    Or even better, here’s a direct link to the media guide:

  2. That Buffalo News thing really blew my mind when I read it. Why can’t old people get that there’s a happy medium with this newfangled technology?

  3. Seriously, people are being unnecessarily mean to the Bills lately.
