Preseason?  Says who??  I was flipped off twice on my ride in to work today while driving my truck with the Sabres decal on the back window.  Welcome back NHL hockey!

First hockey game for my five year old daughter tonight... it's a toss up between her and her dad as to who is more excited.

Let's Go Buffalo!

The question is, which of you is going to torch more cars? How are her baby eating teeth?

Wonder if this game will magically be on Fox Sports South.  I would assume I won't get lucky enough to find it on gamecenter again.

I may have to reign it in and let this be a training session for the kids and let them observe the carnage tonight only to one day let them spread their wings and fly...

Seriously though I expect this to be a relatively low key affair. I got my tickets earlier this week through my Canes contact who texted me and said they had a "###### ton" of extra seats for this game.  I know a lot of friends who are bringing their kids to the game tonight.

I only wish that I could get out of work early and do a little tailgating before the game, it's supposed to be beautiful in the mid 70's today.

Are they Canes fans?

If so, sounds like you have a baby eating buffet tonight.......

Some are......  My son is on the fence, of course all of his friends at school are Canes fans so he is conflicted, but he says he will root for Buffalo tonight.  In a few years when it's not cool to like what dad likes it will be Canes all the way for him.

Ward in net for the Canes tonight.  I'm assuming Miller for us?

I would hope that most fans, yes even Sabres fans, know to tone down the language and other stuff around children.  If they don't then they're no Sabres brother / sister of mine.

I hate it when the Sabres get scored upon, an F-bomb escapes my lips, and I see a five year old three seats away.  It does happen, unfortunately.

Guilty as charged.  I think we've all probably done this before, the difference is that once we screw up that first time it's usually enough to get us to alter our behavior for the remainder of the game.  There are a very small minority of fans who simply don't care and I don't think it's dictated by the colors you root for, those people are just tools in all facets of life.

Sabres fans in Buffalo are really polite to sleeping babies in the arena.  It's really the best All America City out there.

I do dial it back when kids are around, and I hate it.  I'm far from a consistently vulgar fan (at Sabres games anyway; Bills games on the other hand...), but it does kind of diminish the experience to have to constantly think about what you say rather than just riding the emotions.

Don't group Stafford with those two though.  At least Porter and Flynn wring every last ounce out of the talent they were given, as limited as it might be.  I get physically ill watching Stafford continue to put on a Sabres sweater.

There's a time and place for everything. Outside of strip clubs, adult entertainment has become an endangered species nowadays. There are early games, weekend games and games dedicated to kids. I can't go places at night any more without having to be distracted by kids, or asked to behave differently because I'm in the presence of children. It's up to the parents to teach kids about proper behavior and how not to act, it shouldn't be up to everybody else to worry about how they act in front of them. I'm not implying that when I go to a game that I am going to turn into an obnoxious drunk and every other word out of my mouth is a swear word, but I shouldn't have to think twice because you decide to bring your kid to a game instead of going to the movies. There is a law in Oregon that gives restaurant owners the right to ask families with children to leave after a certain time if they feel they've become a distraction. More states should implement some kind of regulation.

Sorry if this angers anybody, I'm just stating my opinion. To me, this is part of the reason arena atmospheres have dwindled to nothing over the years. I just needed to rant, this gets on my nerves every time I see it brought up. By all means bring your kids to the game. I know I went to games as a child where fans got drunk, swore, smoked, and made complete fools of themselves. I don't think it realy had any impact on us, with the exception of missing that atmosphere more and more as the years go by. ;)

I don't feel like I'm this closed-in when it comes to finding places to let out my inner adult; I know that I can easily go elsewhere to be a loud drunk and disorderly that just barely escapes public urination tickets.  That could be a contributing reason why when I'm the presence of children I'm generally polite and considerate.

Plus I know that if I'm cool, that kid sitting next to me will have a good time, and the parent will be encouraged to keep bringing the kid back to games, we'll have made another Sabres fan for life, and we can get drunk and stupid when that kid turns 21.

I don't shoot button bucks.

I teach for a living, so if I'm at a sporting event or at a sports bar, when children are present, I naturally watch what I say/do. It's more of a subconscious thing really. When children are present, I without thinking act as I would in the classroom. Sounds crazy, but when you get in the routine of things it's easy to stay w/ it. As for what's being said in my head when the opposing team scores is a whole different story.

I could not agree more. NFL games are not for children. Fans of each team are dispersed throughout a stadium and often times do not treat each other w/ proper respect. Profanity is thrown left and right and occasionally things escalate to things much worse. My daughter is about to turn 6 and my son is 4, but I have no desire to take them to a Bills game in the near future. Grownups need to grow up.

I kinda agree and also think you should go F2#$32 yourself... :P .   Seriously, I often have to watch games alone in a separate room because of the above facts.  I used to watch games with my Mom, who the only time she cussed was watching Bills games and I was the only one allowed in the room with her.

But it is rough when someone is an idiot around kids.  I agree there should be designated idiot sections at games.  I have been known to embarrass my wife with my shouting... and she is a NYC girl.  Ah, what to do...? :sick:
