As in, the future is bright, man. I watched a good portion of the Traverse City Tournament championship game that the Sabres prospects played in last night, which they won 5-2. The most amazing thing to me, despite the Rangers-centric broadcast, is how much praise the Sabres were getting. Our boys were being treated like the class of the tournament, the team the others were benchmarking themselves by. It might even be right to do that, as they won several games in fairly resounding fashion (6-3, 6-3, 5-2). There was one loss sandwiched in there but overall they were the class of the tourney. Fun to watch.
The other fun story from yesterday was the Season Ticket delivery. Buffalo invited several of my fellow bloggers along for the ride, and you can read about Kate and Heather’s takes on it at their sites. I need to ensure my email address ends up in Ted Black’s hands. I want in next time! I have very cute kids who could accompany me! Seriously though, what an amazing adventure they had, and it’s great publicity for the Sabres to boot. Good job, guys!
