Periodically the Sabres will announce a "no fees day" or some other BS. HOW MUCH DOES IT FRIGGIN COST FOR ME TO GET INTO THE BUILDING AND GO TO MY SEAT?

That IS the cost of the ticket!

Stubhub has gotten worse as well. Rant over.





The Sabres are off to another good start this year. I know they were good in the early going last year but had a bad second half of the season. Maybe this year they can keep going to the end. They do look good right now.

Two bad losses in a row. And now they play two games against Tampa Bay in Sweden. Could come back on 4 game skid. I'm going to a game when they come back. Stubhub still around half of face value.

Damn tough loss for the number 1 seed riverhounds. Up 1-0. Made a great play to get around goalie and was shooting into empty net but he didnt blast it into the net but instead tapped it. Defense came flying out of nowhere and saved it. Went down to the other end and less than a minute later tied it. Went to over time and RH lost in final 2 minutes.

I know the Steelers have been bad, but you are resorting to watching soccer? Chuck Knoll will come back and kick your ass.

https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/courts/woman-accused-of-crashing-rv-into-casino-claimed-she-was-owed-money-1881850/

Someone here said that the woman doesn't look psycho.

As a business owner, I've learned that you can't judge someone by their appearance. We had 2 managers go crazy. The only red flags were that we noticed unusual prior insenstivity. A manager asked to replay over and over surveilance of 2 girls making out at work next to other employees. Another manager told the new employee that he is going to take her on a date. She laughed telling us his reaction.

I had a friend who was scammed by a warehouse builder. He said that the man was well dressed. A well dressed salesman tried to scam us with his credit processing. He showed me papers that our loactions had different rates. None matched the rate with Mercury. He kept coming back and requesting to be friends on Linkedin. We got scammed by an electricity salesman. He has lost most of his customers and is in financial trouble. When he was at his peak, he bought a new house and divorced his wife for a younger one. New salemen would tell his story to us.

People apply for work and we discover serious background check issues.

LMAO. yeah I am not a huge soccer fan but our 7 year old is really into it. It was a playoff game so I figured why not. The game was actually ok. Maybe it was because it was a playoff game but it was a little rough.

I will say though that I wish all sports had their food prices, Small beers were $1, nachos $3, pepsi $3

You should head down and catch a game in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz stadium. I went to the Peach Bowl last year and was amazed at the concession prices. Hot dogs were $2 (I see they reduced them to $1.50 this year!) and soft drinks are $2, and they are self-serve with free refills. They still get you with the beer prices, though.

Self-serve sodas (actually I think all sodas are "Cokes" in Atlanta, like "pop" is in the midwest) is such a brilliant idea. Based on personal experience, 80% of the time I spend in the concession lines at games is waiting for the concessionaires to fill the drink cups. Hot dogs, pretzels, nachos, etc. are all right there, they just grab them and throw them on the counter. But it takes ~30 seconds to fill each cup. Plus, each machine is shared by 2 lines, so if you both want a Sprite, one has to wait on the other.

If they didn't suck so hard, this would make me consider becoming a Falcons fan! I hear Alt United does fairly well, though.

BTW, did anyone catch Kevin Harland's call of the black cat on MNF? Pretty funny; he even squeezes in a sponsor plug.
