Queen City Bee

[Loyal readers may wish to return next week when regular posts on The Dizzies resumes. Until then, Arlo is here with some updates from Buffalo. Apologies...]

While Dizzymaster Ed has gone into hiding (possibly in Chester, NY; more likely in Manitoba), Dizzyhead Arlo is enjoying some Stanley Cup playoff action, which can be difficult without cable television... but AM radio isn't so bad when there's Rick Jeanerette (now in his 34th season of Sabres play-by-play).

I know we are all counting on a Sabres win tonight for a comfortable 3-0 lead in the series. Hopefully things won't get ugly again (like in Monday's 8-2 rout when Philly earned over 60 minutes in penalties) and the Flyers can show some restraint.

The officiating so far in the series has been stellar, with few bad calls and penalties assessed even during both OTs in Game 1. To guide you as you watch tonight's game, pay a visit to the NHL Officials page on hand signals. I particularly like Boarding, which would be a pretty dull signal if it weren't for that moustache. If you flip through all of them fast enough (perhaps while listening to some LCD Soundsystem?), looks like it could be the next big dance craze.

Game 1 was a stellar show of athleticism. That hit by Campbell was astounding.

I dream, as always, of a championship parade down to City Hall. Sigh.

Poor Umberger never saw that one coming...

Let's hope for a parade this year. Only 14 more wins needed; we've had streaks nearly that long!
