  1. The Sabres season, in terms of points per game can be summed up as: mediocre, the streak, sub-mediocre. That's not going to change this season.

    The even randomer thread

    As someone who started a GDT this year, I'm offended. 🙂

    Playoffs! Do you think we make it?

    The 10-game records help too: 6-3-1, 5-1-3. That's a lot more wins than losses.

    Taxes aren't done yet, but that's what's looking like. I must be in the goldilocks zone where the new standard deduction isn't as much as what I was deducting before but my marginal rate is the same. Note that I'm not doing any crazy tax gymnastics or anything, mortgage interest, child credit, some charity donations, that's it.

    The tax cut. I don't mind paying my taxes. It's the price we pay to create a society. I *do* mind my taxes going up as a result of a tax cut for people with more money than they know what to do with. Note, I'm not talking about refund, either. (2018 federal withholding + tax payment) = (2017 federal withholding + tax payment + 1.5% gross salary). Yeah, I just took a 1.5% tax hike.

    Playoffs! Do you think we make it?

    I forgot about the last win, I think when I looked it was 90.something. That 1.308 pace is 107 points over a season. It seems unlikely the Sabres are going to be one of the top teams in hockey over the next two months.

    No. I haven't pasted my math in awhile, but they're below the pace to even get to 94. Expecting them to suddenly get significantly better for the next 2 month is luderous. There's a reason I switched to sad Keanu. I wish it wasn't true.

    How much better would we be with ROR and Kane?

    Glad I'm not the only one that sees the pattern. 🙂

    Don't underestimate this, it helps ROR that he lives in a state where Tim Horton's doesn't have legal standing (presumably, I've never seen on that's not in NY in the US).

    Audio — MSG vs. WGR

    Can't tell if this is sincere or subtly hilarious.

    CJ Smith Called Up

    Girgensens. He came up from Rochester and then played pretty well for a season under Nolan.
  12. It's an unholy alliance of Lucky Charms, Frankenberry, and Rich's Creamer flowing under the city.

    That cannot be spelled correctly given the context.

    The Leafs

    I'm not sure there's a definitive answer to this, but that's the gist.
