Anniversary with the Sabres

romantic night

A romantic night wouldn’t be complete without Canadian beer

On Jan­u­ary 23, Pres­ley and I marked our 7th anniver­sary, and I couldn’t think of a bet­ter way to spend it than at the Sabres-Bru­ins hock­ey game. Am I right?

Just so you don’t think I’m weird, our first “date” was a Sabres game (in Buf­fa­lo) in Decem­ber of 1996. So, it was a nice reminder for us, and it was cool. Thanks to Craigslist, we got first-row, on-the-glass seats. Amaz­ing.

In a horrifyingly dorky move, I was wearing a Satan #81 Jersey… I was.

  • If you don’t mind my ask­ing, rough­ly how much dough did you shell out for the tick­ets? My wife, friends and I often get to some hock­ey and NBA games, but we only rarely get a decent deal.

  • Col­in,

    Well, we used to have sea­son tick­ets in Buf­fa­lo, which is rel­a­tive­ly cheap… but, Boston is far more expen­sive. Because these were sea­son tick­et seats, their face val­ue was $99, and the guy gave them to me for $100 each. If I tried to buy seats like that from the box office, they would be much more.

    The guy was nice. Also, the Bru­ins don’t sell out every game, espe­cial­ly against a last-place team like Buf­fa­lo. He prob­a­bly fig­ured face-val­ue was bet­ter than noth­ing.
