Sad Sabres Fan Unifies Region With Message of Hopelessness

0

First, the Bills lost to the then 2-12 Raiders, and were eliminated from playoff contention.

Later in the day, the hapless 2014-15 Sabres blew a 3-2 lead late in the 3rd, and lost in OT. Cameras found this poor guy in the stands of TD Garden after the final horn blew:

It must really be something else to have your own Buffalo sports gutting broadcast at the end of a day like that. But we feel your pain, Sad Sabres Fan. Today, we are all #SadSabresFan.

Video: The “Anglicisation” Of The French Connection

0

Ah, vintage Sabres videos are always a lot of fun.

In this case, we get to see some clips and quotes from a very young looking French Connection. Also, pay special attention to the pronunciation of the names – particularly “Richard Martin.”

 

 

Got to love the Looney Tunes soundtrack, too.

Go Sabres.

What Are We Rooting For, Really?

0

The Buffalo Sabres have won six out of their last seven and the fanbase has been whipped up into a frenzy.

There’s two sides in the frenzy, and they’ve dug their trenches. On one side of the battlefield are the “tankites” (not sure who minted that term, but it’s so cutesy that it is loathsome, which was probably the point). On the other side, we’ve got the contingent of fans that like to toss around novelty phrases such as “Real fans don’t choose to root against the team.”

Then, there’s a third group of fans kind of caught up in the middle. I count myself of one of these fans getting whipped up by the crossfire, because I am not cheering against the team, and I’m not rooting for a tank. What I want, and what I think all fans want, is long term sustainable success. I want, like all of you, for the team to play well.

Are wins fun? Heck yea. Is 6 wins in the last 7 games something to cheer about? Sure. It’s been fun. Is the team really playing well?

No.
