Hello, my name is Fushetti, and I'm a Sabres fan.
I'm closing in on 40...i'm coming to grips that my hometown teams, Sabres & Bills will never win in my lifetime.
So this year, post 10 game streak, I've really been having a hard time with my first love, The Sabres. Last year was without a doubt (and i'm sure for many of you) the least enjoyable Sabres season for me. The lottery win kept me hanging on. Then the streak... i started to feel that feeling i hadn't felt in so long. Excitement, hope, optimism, OMG PLAYOFFS? (Jim Mora where are you?) Then the effing freefall since. I'm back to square one. I am back to not really caring.
I'm really having a hard time justifying any sort of time/attention/money toward this team any longer. The Tim Murray era on has killed my passion for this team. I cried the day that the Pegulas brought back old the old player on alumni night in 2011. I drove in from Albany for playoff games and screamed my head off to the point to lightheadedness when Drury scored against NYR. I went to Carolina and Ottawa in the ECF's. I still have season tickets living 300 miles away.
Just wondering if anyone else feels like me out there. It never seems to get better as a Buffalo fan. I've been in Albany since 2003. I adopted the Red Sox as a baseball team and they've won 4 championships but its not the same as if my teams from WNY won. (Save it Yanks Fans)
I'm sure i'll post this, forget i posted it and never see a reply like i always do. This site really needs a notification system.
