Pre-season Hockey! The Buffalo Sabres met Ovechkin and his merry bunch of bruisers at HSBC Arena tonight, and Honorable Son number three and I were there to witness it. Lindy played the kids, and there were definitely a lot of mistakes, but a few players caught my eye. The Sabres lost to the Caps in overtime, 4-3, but hey, its pre-season.
I also participated this afternoon in a small part of the planning for the 40th anniversary of the Sabres, which will be next season (the club joined the league in 1970). I am sworn to secrecy (I have to be careful - they're checking this blog!) but needless to say, it will be a year of celebration. Unreal - forty years.
