So, after a little TiVo delay necessitated by dinner (once again we are undone by a 7:00 start time), we’re settling in to watch a battle between two of our erstwhile secondary teams. We know we announced at the start of this season that we were going to be following the Sabres and Capitals as ardently as Devils fans can, but the whole point of a secondary team is for it to be fun. With the Devils sucking, we really didn’t have a lot of room in our TV schedule for even more sucky teams; tonight we meet up with them a bit awkwardly, as strangers. As we fire up the TiVo, the following conversation takes place:
IPB: Stiffly “Sabres.”
Sabres: Nodding “IPB.”
IPB: Turning to the Caps “Capitals.”
Caps: Coolly “IPB.”
This should be fun.
