Rock the FNC

Tonight the Sabres play the Penguins in the last game of the season. Here are 3 reasons why the crowd should be as loud as ever.

We won at losing! At the beginning of the year we all knew what the goal was: Finish last. It took 81 games, but we did it! We are now guaranteed either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel! We finally found something we do better than anybody else. Let’s celebrate!

Remember 2005? The Bills needed a win against Pittsburgh’s B-team to sneak into the playoffs. Against all odds, we lost. Now, about 10 years later, the Pittsburgh Penguins needs to beat a B-team in Buffalo to clinch a playoff spot. It’s time to get revenge!

It’s been an odd year. It was right to root against the Sabres for these past 81 games, but it often felt wrong. And it wasn’t really fair to the players. It’s a new day. Game 82. We’re fans again. We have a whole season’s worth of cheering to catch up on. We can ‘root root root for the home team’ for a change!

Let’s make it a memorable night Buffalo!
