    I have issues counting.

    I need to update the Lost points, but this stretch of 0-4-2 has almost wiped out the lead they had on the playoff bubble. They now need to play at a 94-point pace for the rest of the season to get to 94 points, and *maybe* make the playoffs. That's something they were not doing before the streak, and it remains to be seen if they can now.

    Practice Report: Monday, 12-10-2018

    Welcome! You're completely right, other than the scoring part; I'm not sure I'd expect that from that line no matter how long they're together. There's a great post recently by Randall Flagg discussing how good that 4th line defensively, but it keeps getting broken up for some doghouse player. The end of the post comes down to: keep Skinner - Eichel - Pominville together, keep 28, 22, 81 together, and cycle in healthy scratches and guys in the middle two lines until something clicks.

    Buffalo Bills 2018-2019

    It'd be interesting to find out if part of that is the (presumably) good drive starts teams are getting against the Bills' sub-mediocre offense. Your D can be good in yards per game if the opposing team only has to go 40-50 yards each possession to score. 🙂

    That third line looks terrible.

    Lost Neckace at Sabres game

    Hey, a friend of mine lost her neckalce at the Sabres game (section 112) or Labatt Brew house the other night. It contains her dad's ashes so understandably she's hoping to find it. If anyone happened to find a necklace with Dad 1943-2013 inscribed on it, let me know.

    I'm loving the KC Chiefs -> KFC Chefs joke.

    Maybe this belongs in Music, but: I'm listening to At Folsom Prison (the 1999? version with a lot of chatter between songs). Twice, someone comes on and announces names that have to be somewhere (One inmate is "Batshelter", awesome name). How much would it suck to be in prison, listening to Johnny Cash live, and have to leave?
  11. I don't disagree entirely, but there are a sizeable set of STHs that view their seats as an investment. They'd be foolish to pass up their greatest profits of the season.
  12. Carolina wouldn't sell tickets to non-NC-ish zipcodes for a few days when they made the playoffs in 2006; luckily there were still plenty of good seats available when that ban expired. That's about the best you'd see, but then some enterprising Buffalo residents will capitalize on that and re-re-sell them. It's just one of those things, I think. Leafs fans are passionate and with the high prices in Toronto (the GS), there's going to be high demand for Leafs games in Buffalo.

    We should name this idea something snappy, like Cognitive Bias. 🙂

    My guess is it's the lowest note in the melody combined with an odd word to sing. The other times the melody hits that note are "say" (O-oh SAY can you see) and two "ing"s (gleaming and streaming). The Star-spangled banner is difficult song to sing as it covers 1.5 octaves, were an average to good singer only really has one solid octave of range. For instance, in the common keys of B-flat or C a Soprano woman those low notes are outside what's considered their range, or for an Alto the high notes are a little outside their normal range. Many female singers (as in ones that have dreams of pop stardom) are Sopranos.

    Philly is a pretty cool town, really. It's not entirely unlike Buffalo, just in there are 3 good sushi places in Buffalo there are 30 in Philly. It has a much more neighborhood feel to it than NYC or DC. Tons more great beer, even taking into account Buffalo's recent rash of new breweries. PM me (or we can talk here) if you want to be more specific about what's up. IIRC, you're in Software so there's a (small) chance I may know of the company. I'm not at all in tune with the market as I've been at the same job for a decade. 🙂 No worries, Philly has (somewhat deservedly) bad rep around here, but it's probably more like Buffalo than many cities I've been too.
