Good morning, Buffalo Sabres fans!
I’m coming to you LIVE, from the Holiday Inn Express and Suites by the airport, as we’re in town for the Pepsi Tournament!
It’s the end of the season for my son’s Mite hockey team, and we’re going out in style here in Buffalo with two games scheduled for today and one more tomorrow. If you are in the mood for some youth hockey, come out to the Holiday Twin Rinks today and check out hockey being played by kids who just love hockey.
Now: the links!
