The Obstinacy: Links From The Round

By Chris

Lets’ kick things off with some Sabres news. The hockey team’s in Philadelphia tonight and Luke Adam will be in the lineup. Luckily it’s not because anyone is hurt. It’s quite the opposite in fact; Rob Niedermayer stayed in Buffalo to be with his newborn daughter. So congrats there.

Adam seems like a nice enough guy, basing that only on a Facebook interview he agreed to do with us after he was drafted. He seems like a pretty good player, too based on what we’ve seen and what Kris Baker says.

Free Darko’s new book was released yesterday. Mine’s on its way via UPS so I’m sure we’ll be talking about it here in the near future. If you already have it, let us know how it is. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to get my hands on it.

Canisius hockey and WECK have teamed up to broadcast a handful of men’s hockey games this season. First game on the air is Friday and I’ll be involved in the broadcast in some way, shape or form so consider this a shameless plug.

Paul from Hockey Rhetoric has a new post up focusing on Twitter. I wouldn’t link to it if it wasn’t worth it and Paul always puts a lot of thought into his writing.

The World Series starts tomorrow night. You know we’d read a Joe Posnanski piece on how to mix paint, but Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News is also in San Fransisco for Game One. And if you haven’t read Mike’s great take on Joe Girardi, you can find that right here.

Also on tomorrow night is probably the best show on TV: FX’s “Terriers.” Ratings are super low and that may mean we won’t see a second season. The show has nothing to do with dogs, but rather two private eyes in Southern California who can’t catch a break. I know this post won’t save the show, but if you like quality programming, you’ll probably like it too.

Not a true link here, but ever since Bob Gaughan pointed out that Ryan Fitzpatrick has small hands on Brad Riter’s show last Friday, I can’t not think about it. I mean, seriously.
