Happy Pegula Day!

It’s a happy day, Sabres fans!  Today, at long last, our new owner/leader/chief/BFF ascends to the throne.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

All of the balloons we released in mid-July last year said, “Get here soon, billionaire-we’ve-not-yet-heard-of!  Get here soon!”  Our balloon-release/organized-wish-making WORKED, Sabres fans!  He got our messages, and now he’s HERE!

We’ve had a lot of fun with the approaching press conference on Twitter the last few days.  Only a crazy person would believe all of the hype about Pegula, but I’ve definitely enjoyed the sense of celebration among Buffalonians.  Who knows what the future actually holds, but this is one of those rare opportunities when dreaming big is totally warranted. I think Paul said it best last night when he said,

Don’t try and put Pegula in perspective now. Plenty of time for that in a few years. Just have fun with it now.

I’ll be celebrating Pegula Day in Canada, looking at reasonably priced furniture at IKEA, as the Hockey Gods intended for the people to celebrate Pegula Day.  But you can rest assured, I’ll catch up as fast as I can this afternoon.

A new era begins today.  WOOOOOOO!

Happy Pegula Day!

    “I wanna run the team to win the Stanley Cup. If I want to make some money I’ll go build a gas well.”

    Nuff said.

    Happier indeed than we could have hoped for.

    You can’t get reasonably priced IKEA furniture or a reasonable facsimile in Buffalo?

    Happy Pegula Day!

    IKEA is a totally appropriate place to celebrate anything Sabres-related. They have the right color scheme and everything!

    Happy Pegula Day everyone!!!

    Pegula and Black said all the right things to make me very happy. I haven’t been this happy since the Sabres reached the Stanley Cup Finals. FU Hull!

    Woohoo! Very awesome press conference. Liked everything about it, and am impressed by the people he has hired to assist him with the team so far. Two thumbs up so far.
