What a great weekend I had! Was fortunate enough to be invited to the Sabre's game against Atlanta on Saturday night. It's been a couple of years since I attended a game and I had forgotten how much fun it is! Sat up in the Press Box with my old friend John Murphy. It was so good to see so many old friends. Went into the broadcast booth and visited with Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale. Stood in the 200 level and caught up with Mike Robitaille, as "The Dominator" was being interviewed. What a great standing ovation from the crowd when Dominik dropped the puck for the face off. To top it all off, Buffalo won 8-2! If only I had gone the next night when Nashville came to town. Maybe i could have brought the team a little more luck!
Then on Sunday it was the big St. Patrick's Day Parade down Delaware Avenue. For a change, the weather was actually pretty good. Was so nice walking the parade route and meeting so many great people. Although I think there may be a few of them who don't remember even being there! No shortage of "Green Beer", as is always the case on St. Paddy's Day!
