I pretty much pride myself on not being duped too easily.
Alright, maybe I have in the past when it comes to sports. But for the most part, I don't really listen to experts or fans when it comes to telling me what is right or what is wrong with a team. Sure, you can argue with me and I'll respect your opinion, but for the most part I think you are probably full of shit...and you may feel the same way about me.
I think I have a good head on my shoulders and try not to listen to white noise all that much. It all started when I decided to not do major designer drugs as a kid because my best friends did it and culminated with me not going on a crime spree of stealing lava lamps at Spencers. I'm just not the type to jump off a bridge if my best friend told me to. Oh, this is about sports...Back to that.
Maybe it's my cynical viewpoint of the world or how I believe everyone has an ulterior motive for building up or destroying a story. I just want to decide for myself without being influenced by outside sources.
I just constantly hear how this is or isn't going to work out when we haven't seen the product on the ice or at least attempted to Google a stat or two. It is fluff in most cases for which I've adopted kind of a wait and see approach. Most of it is propaganda to get fans excited or pissed off. It could also be that I think I'm a know-it-all. Maybe it has to do with being disappointed with preseason expectations in years past.
In case you haven't heard, "the Sabres are tougher to play against."no comments
