It's hard to blame someone when they get upset about their team losing. We've all been there. It's part of sports, especially if you're a fan of certain teams. It's also hard to blame someone when they don't like Sean Avery. In fact, if you're one of those people, you could very well be in the majority. So, when Avery scored what would be the eventual game winner yesterday in Buffalo, Sabres fans in the stands were quick to react and did so in a fashion that is, I guess, pretty natural and expected given the circumstances.
You have to give them credit too, to react so quickly and in such large numbers is impressive. Imagine what it would be like if Brett Hull or Troy Aikman ever showed their face up there. They would be run out of town before their plane ever landed. Getting slightly off topic for a second, that's why it's probably not a smart move for the Bills to flirt with Toronto. I imagine Buffalonians would block the borders in at least the eastern half of the country to prove a point. I'm not slighting Buffalo either. It's one hell of a sports city and the NHL numbers on jersey sales, not to mention last year's playoff run, only help to drive home that point.
Gotta love the one person in the middle who decided to go with the classic "Loser's L" rather than flip the bird.on certain days.
