Turning Garbage Into Gold

Val and I joined about 80-100 other rabid Buffalo Sabres' fans at the Lindy Ruff Fine Party at Casa Di Pizza Monday night. With Ruff's $10,000 fine by the National Hockey League for his response to the cheap head hit on Sabres' forward/co-captain Chris Drury by Ottawa Senator Chris Neil paid by the team, donations at the event went to the Food Bank of Western New York.
There were people there of all ages and backgrounds, with the common denominator the amazing amount of Buffalo Sabres clothing, hats and coats worn by attendees, including Val and I. People were in great moods and talking with other Sabres fans they had just met, while the Rick Jeanneret DVD played on a television. People munched on pizza, chicken wings, pasta and rolls.
It may have been frigid outside, but things were nice, warm and friendly inside.
