All of us have our favorites and they were/are our favorites and no one should ever criticize them. I’ve decided to do a list of my favorite memories about sports and mostly in particular about Buffalo sports. Feel free to criticize me or tell your own. This will tell you a little bit more about me.
Favorite Bill of all-time: Thurman, people who grew up in my era are most likely going to pick Thurman, Bruce, Andre or Jimbo. For me, that’s my order.
Favorite current Bill: Regardless of how it played out last year, Stevie Johnson is the guy I want to love.
Favorite Sabre of all-time: Dave Andreychuk, I know a little weird, but the man scored power play goals and I loved him.
Favorite current Sabre: Thomas Vanek, same style, more skill and under contract for a while.
Favorite Bills games I’ve been to: 51-3 AFC Championship game, enough said.
Favorite Bills game: Comeback, even though I had to have Van Miller tell it to me.
Favorite Sabres game I’ve been to: Game 5 against the NY Rangers with Drury’s game tying goal and Max’s OT game winner (Game 5 Eastern Conference Finals against Toronto is very close second)
Favorite Sabres game: 3-way tie Game 1 Sabres vs. Senators 7-6 OT game. One of the best games to ever watch. Dave Hannan game where Hasek and Brodeur played out of their minds. May-Day.
Top 5 non-Buffalo Sports moments in no particular order that I’ve witnessed
– 1996 Women’s gymnastics team
– Jim Valvano’s ESPY Speech
– Hasek’s run through the Olympic’s in 1998 (probably wouldn’t have cared as much if it wasn’t Hasek in net).
– Women’s world cup
– 1999 Ryder Cup
Moment I most wished I had witnessed: Miracle on Ice
I just realized those are mostly Olympic/national events. Interesting, or boring depending on your opinion.
Favorite Teams: Sabres, Bills, Syracuse Basketball, New York Mets, outside of that I just enjoy watching all and every sport and the Olympics are the sweetest thing ever. Period (well outside the Bills and Sabres).
