Uhh. Well, we haven't exactly gotten around to setting up our website yet. We've been a little high. We promise it's coming soon, though. Yeahhh ... soon! If you've stumbled upon us after seeing our T-shirt out and about and you'd like to order one, please send us an email... Continue reading

Reports coming out of Buffalo that Darcy Regier and Ron Rolston are OUT and Pat LaFontaine is being hired as President of Hockey Operations of the Buffalo Sabres. Oh for everything that is good and holy, please let this be true. Continue reading

Welcome to our T-Rev's Original Food Co. blog. We put all our resources into our products, not fancy websites to advertise them. Well, okay, that's only partially true. We do pride ourselves on our gourmet seasonings and sauces, made only with premium, all-natural ingredients and no preservatives, but we're also... Continue reading

Vanek*, Hodgson, Ott, Foligno. At this point, these are the only players I really care about being on the Sabres roster after this season. Thomas Vanek gets an asterisk because, given his current trade value, he could probably command a first round pick, a top prospect, and a roster player... Continue reading

SABRES FIRE LINDY RUFF! But before you get too excited, TSN just announced that James Patrick will serve as interim coach. Maybe this is because this was a spur of the moment decision, but nothing will change as long as they retain the SAME SYSTEM they've been under for years.... Continue reading

We tried to believe this year would be different. We really did. I can't argue that it was a bad idea for Darcy Regier to add grit to the Sabres lineup in the form of Steve Ott and John Scott. I mean, who wouldn't take Steve Ott? I wrote just... Continue reading

I've been meaning to plug my buddy Kevin's new blog for our reader for the past couple weeks. That wasn't a typo. I think we have one reader. Kevin used to host my favorite sports blog but now has a gig at Trending Buffalo, where he reports on the reporters... Continue reading

After starting the season 2-0, in large part due to finding themselves the beneficiary of some calls that usually tend to go against them, the Buffalo Sabres find themselves at 2-3 after five games. I'm digging a season where every game matters, by the way. By no means are the... Continue reading

Dear Jake, As you're heading back to school this year I can't help but think ahead another decade or so when you'll most likely start applying to colleges. As I like to say, I hope you get really good at throwing a ball over the next few years because I... Continue reading

Dear Jake, It's going to be a long time before you move out on your own, but I hope you read this letter before you contemplate buying your first mortgage house. There's plenty of debate between renting and buying a house and there are pros and cons to both options,... Continue reading

Dear Jake, One of the biggest challenges I face as a father is how to teach you and Rex to ignore the widespread myth that government police officers are here to keep the citizenry safe. Perhaps this was somewhat true 50 or even 30 years ago, but it is no... Continue reading

Ahhhh... 95 degree weather, shorts and flip flops. Yep, it's the perfect time to start talking hockey again on Swordplay. I guess we can officially call this "Day 1" of the new blog year. I must admit, Regier has been impressive: He's drafted (what appears to be) well; he's brought... Continue reading

Dear Jake, I thought about this storybook last night as I tried to get you to go to sleep. I actually came in to relieve Mommy at 10 p.m. once Rex woke up and started screaming for her, so this is for him too. In a country that loves its... Continue reading

Dear Jake, I can't believe how grown up you are. Or how quickly time flies, for that matter. Today we celebrated your very first school graduation! It seems like just yesterday that Mommy took this photo of you on your first day of school last September. All decked out with... Continue reading

Dear Jake, Today is Memorial Day. Textbooks, teachers, and television news anchors will refer to this holiday as a day to remember all the men and women who've died while serving in the United States military. To this end alone I've always found it a little perverse that people would... Continue reading

Dear Jake, I hope you had fun in Rehoboth Beach last weekend. This was the third time in two years you've come to Delaware with me for my chili festivities, and I think you really had a good time. (I was a little jealous of you, Rex, and Mommy; you... Continue reading

Dear Jake, This is you. You were only two weeks old when this photo was taken after you were born on Oct. 5, 2007. Well, this isn't the actual photo, of course; this is a drawing of the original photo that I made for you and Mommy -- a Thanksgiving... Continue reading

Sadly, the title above holds dual meaning. The Sabres are done and so are we -- at least for this season. After a weekend that saw Erik's computer shit the bed while the Sabres failed to earn even one point over two games versus backup goalies, our respectives seasons have... Continue reading

Well, we don't know how the standings will shake out a couple weeks from now but, for now, the Buffalo Sabres are officially in the playoffs. With five straight wins they're the hottest team in hockey. Lindy Ruff challenged them to win their final 10 so they're halfway there. It... Continue reading

My apologies to all respectable Caps fans. I've just wanted to be able to write that in a public forum since I was 12. It's rare to see a beatdown like the 5-1 treat Buffalo put on Washington last night, so that makes the loss of Christian Ehrhoff a little... Continue reading

I'm tempted to go to the Sabres/Caps game tomorrow night at the Verizon Center, but I honestly can't remember the last time I went to a Sabres game in person and they won. Oh wait, yes I can; it was the last one I went to. They came from behind... Continue reading

Well I suppose it should figure. The Sabres finally thump an opponent and can't move up in the standings. Going into last night's games Buffalo was only two points out of eighth behind the Caps, who were playing the otherwise reliable Red Wings. But as luck would have it, Washington... Continue reading

Tyler Myers was slapped with a three-game suspension by Brendan Shanahan for boarding Scott Gomez during Monday's night's game against the Canadiens. Forget the fact that there's no apparent attempt by Myers to injure on the hit, or that it should be acceptable to attempt to injure dickheads like Scott... Continue reading
