Autumn is coming...

I can feel it in the air, though not quite literally because it is 92 degrees out today. But I just have that change of season feeling going on. School starts for Annabelle in one week, fall clothes are out on all the racks at the stores, and I've been humming Christmas songs. But the thing that is really exciting me is hockey season is right around the corner.

I've seen the local skating rink's parking lot filled up with big, expensive SUV's in the middle of the day, which is the signal that the Sabres are back in town and starting informal practices on their own. Soon it will be training camp and pre-season games. It's just one thing that makes me love living in Buffalo. We are a town of eternal optimists, even when our teams (suck it Bills) are going down. You see Bills and Sabres t-shirts and jerseys worn tear round but when September hits, the air is electric with hope and positivity. This will be the year we go all the way.

That is until we hit a snag, or Ryan Miller goes down with an injury, or Vanek and Pominville and Roy suck it up like last season. But right now I'm just pumped to go watch a few practices. I'll hide in the back hoping I won't be perceived as a puck bunny and just wait as patiently as I can for Friday October 8, the first game of the season.


  1. I so feel it too!
    I dont want it to be fall yet. I am not ready for the summer fun to be over with. I hate the winter cold.

    We are watching our first game this weekend.
