The “Hockey Heaven” Contest: Introducing Brendan2
We had a lot of great entries here, folks. Thanks to all who participated in our “What ‘Hockey Heaven’ Means to Me” contest. Our first winner is Brendan McIntyre, who is rooting for the Blue and Gold deep from within the United States Capitol. Take it away, Brendan!
Hockey Heaven is a life-long Sabres fan, raised on the French Connection-led Sabres of the old Memorial Auditorium, buying the team and preparing it for greatness.
Hockey Heaven is a jam-packed HSBC arena, boiling over with blue and gold Sabres fans, screaming at the top of their lungs the most amazing cheer in all of sports, “Let’s Go Buff-a-lo.”
Hockey Heaven is a horde of blue collar Sabres fans rallying out front of 1 Seymour H Knox III Plaza, watching playoff games on enormous big screens.
Hockey Heaven is turning down Versus and turning up the living legend, Rick Jeanneret.
Hockey Heaven will soon be a mob of humanity gathered from around the country to see the Sabres bring Lord Stanley’s Cup down Delaware Avenue.
Let’s Go Buff-a-lo!
Brendan also has an Ovechkin Sound Board on his blog. Goodtimes! I know, I should have typed “Ovechkin Sound Board” at the beginning of this post. Ovie is, after all, such an attention grabber: the “Can you give me some shots vodka please?” button on the sound board is a keeper. Hit it a few times in a row, and tell me you ain’t ready to dance.
Anyway, you may also find Brendan on Twitter at @BrendanMcIntyre.
We’ll announce our other winner shortly.
