What an Experience!

This is totally non-stamping related. Just wanted to share with you a couple of pictures from Buffalo's Winter Classic. It was AMAZING. Buffalo was an great host city. Everybody was so friendly. We were surrounded by Buffalo fans, but they were so nice. One guy even high-fived me when Pittsburgh won in the shoot out!

It was actually pretty hard to watch the game because of the distance and the snow. But it was so exciting. The atmosphere was amazing. I'm so glad that I was there.

Wow! Look at all those people! Very exciting, I'm sure! Looks gosh darn cold, too.

Great game--except for the shoot out (not a fan of those!)! You are brave to withstand all that cold. I love to go to hockey games (seen a team with the Stanley Cup, another win the NCAA hockey championship), but not sure I'd want to be outdoors for one.

Watched the game at home in Pittsburgh...with a fire in the fireplace. I just love to watch Sidney play. I am not a fan of the shoot-out but it was so exciting to see that puck fly right between the goalie's skates. I thought Conklin did a great job too. We'll be at the game tonight and Saturday afternoon. Go Pens!

Sounds like you had a good time! I'm glad my fellow NYers were good sports and had some decent manners!

Looks like you had a great time! I'm not one for staying out in the cold anymore, but I do miss that! :)

How exciting for you. This was an awesome game and we had wished we were there - not to freeze our butts off - but just to soak in all of the excitement! How long did it take you to warm up after the game?

Great pictures.

Oh My Gosh! I stumbled onto your blog today and found this shot of the Winter Classic! I am a huge, huge Sabres fan and tried so hard to get tickets for the family but couldn't. You are so lucky! It was so exciting just to see it on tv I can't imagine what it was like in person! Sabres fans truly are some of the nicest people. I am glad that it was true for you guys!!
