Don't give a damn what anyone thinks or knows. Same could be said for soccer. Like I said in this thread a few weeks ago, I'm not Chandu. I'm not here to try to talk anyone into liking or following hockey or impress with numbers. I enjoy it, and that's all that matters and it is a way of life here in Buffalo, along with Detroit, Minneapolis and others. If it's not your thing that's cool. Soccer numbers don't impress me. Just because there's good numbers doesn't mean the sport is any good. NASCAR numbers improve every year, and that has turned into crap. The sport was better when next to know one followed it. 33 Days until the first Sabres Preseason game, 47 days until the season opener.
