The Primaries are under way. 

And here's someone who is taking the whole process with all of the seriousness it deserves.

I've always liked Dave Barry. Even though he's a Dolphins fan. Hey, nobody's perfect.

The answer! 

Harv, over at Bad Money has the answer. But I'm not entirely sure I understand the question.

It's cold outside. 

Wow, a forcast high of 10 deg. F. You'd think it was January or something. Oh, wait... it is. It is so surprising to hear people complain about how cold it is. All of a sudden they just found out that they live in the North. Admitedly, these temperatures are below the average for Buffalo, NY, but sometimes we get above average temps too. That's why it's weather and not climate control. Besides, if this was somewhere in the plains states, like Buffalo, SD,we would be talking about this as a warm spell.

Hey, at least we missed almost all of the lake effect snow off of Erie so far this year.

Sabres win? 

Well, they won. But it was a little close there at the end. The get an empty net goal and then give up a goal when the Bruins pulled their goalie again.

The only problem that I have is that the Sabres always seem to have just enough good games to keep you watching. But not enough to actually go anywhere.

Boy, those Sabres are lousy. 

Just listened to the pregame show of the Sabres/Bruins game. And I can't help but feel what a waste this season has been. The Sabres need to win practically every game to the end of the season just to make the playoffs. If they haven't been able to win much so far, what's to make them all of a sudden the hottest thing on ice?

And since I'm on a rant, what's the problem with finding a singer who knows the national anthem for a hockey game? At the last two games in Boston, the singer they had made me want to cringe. He had a variable tempo which the organist couldn't keep, kept changing keys whenever it was too high or low, and didn't know the whole tune. And I'm not talking about an "artistic interpretation." This was just bad. Don't they care, or are all the good singers on the East coast on Broadway?

Usually, the Sabres are able to find decent singers for they're home games. Although not all of them know the Canadian anthem. Most every hockey fan in Buffalo knows the words though. I wouldn't be suprised if some of them thought that the American anthem begins with the words "Oh, Canada. Our home and native land..."

Wow, the Sabres just scored. So they're winning... for now.

I hope that I'm wrong, but I don't see the Sabres playoff bound this year.
