Anniversary with the Sabres

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.




Oh, and I also had roses delivered to her workplace…

  • 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.
