Favorite Sabre Moment(s)/Memories:

The Good:

1. Having beers with Rick Martin at a tiki bar down here in Florida.....He told me he'd be back the next day, it was my local hangout and I brought in a DVD player with old Sabres Highlights, many of them of him, and we had drinks for over an hour.....awesome time. I was wearing a Sabres Tee, and some guy asks me, with Martin next to me, if I thought I was part of the French Connection, I said: "I'm not but he is..." Awesome, awesome moment, especially if you ever met Martin. He had a genuine smile and interest the entire time.....RIP.

The Bad:

2. About 10 years ago, playoff series against Philly, Hasek let in a goal that he was miffed at how it got past him. After further review, the puck went through the side of the net.....AND COUNTED! The way Hasek looked down at his pads, and around, you could tell he knew something was up. Goal counted then. During intermission, the camera was on Darcy in the review booth with an official, standing on a chair, pointing to a tv, could tell he was screaming f-bombs, goal still counted, and the Buffalo curse lived on. Loved Darcy since.

The Ugly:

No Goal...I was there.

Jerseys: 4.

Hate: NYR and Philly

Bands: way too many to list...Van Halen, with David Lee Roth is all time fav. Stones, Offspring, Elvis, Hip, Headstones, Doors, lots of rock bands of today...
