- I my niece turned one today, and I got to go to her birthday party before the game.
I got to watch the game with my sister, which was great. She had fun.
I sat 4th row! Oh the advantages of procrastinating. Had I bought the tickets in, say, October, rather than the beginning of December then I'd probably have sat in the 300s. This leads to my next point.
I got some great pictures. (at least I like them)
Paul Gaustad had some great hits and was fun to watch.
Now for the bad:
- The Sabres didn't feel like showing up with one exception (see above)
Derek Roy decided to take a penalty in the first minute. Come on!
The power play still sucks. I've been away from hockey for most of the season (due to circumstances beyond my control), and I had hoped that the power play would improve. Instead I saw lazier skating than at even strength.
Even the Caps looked a bit bored. Instead of seeing one lazy team I had to watch 2. It sucked seeing my lazy team beaten by another lazy team.
This is the only game I'll get to see in person this season. I feel very let down. Buffalo Sabres players, you owe me an apology, except for The Goose.
I'll post some pictures in a bit.
