Game On! Slug Whacking, and Buffalo Sabres BINGO!
Yes, I know, I said that in the title already – but it’s worth typing twice, especially on such a big day.
Today is the Sabres first preseason game (against the hated Hurricanes). If you have tickets, meet me somewhere around the corridors near the 312 section and buy me a beer. If you don’t have tickets, well you can still buy me a beer using the “tips jar” on the side bar over there.
Remember it’s also “Slug Appreciation Day” (otherwise known as “Slug Whacking Day” in my house).
Sorry for the poor quality on that video, but you get the point. My hockey stick is polished, and as soon as I hit the publish button, I’m going outside for some mid-September slug hunting. Oh yeah, there’s also that Sabres Store discount thing going on:
Fans are encouraged to wear their old Sabres merchandise featuring the ‘Slug’ logo to Monday’s game to receive a 41% discount – to honor the team’s 41st season – on a matching item featuring the Sabres’ current logo.
Doors to the Sabres Store will open at 10 a.m. and will remain open until the conclusion of Monday night’s game. Fans are cautioned, however, that they will need a ticket to enter the building after 7 p.m. The sale is not a ‘trade-in’ sale, fans will be keeping the old ‘Slug’ items. This is a one-day sale and cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts. Previous sales are excluded and products are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Rain checks will be issued for sold out items.
Fans wearing their ‘Slug’ attire will also be eligible for several contests running throughout the night. For a chance to win current Sabres jerseys, fans can follow the team on Facebook (www.facebook.com/bufsabres) and Twitter (@SabresDotCom).
This is going to be an outstanding night.
