I downloaded the OneBuffalo APP on fan appreciation night to take a shot at the giveaways and in doing so I inadvertently signed up for the One Buffalo newsletter, which I received earlier this week.
Reading through the letter left me with a growing sense of anger with this franchise. It reads like it was written by a teenage girl whose vocabulary barely eclipses 500 words (which might be a bit generous).
I am shocked that this is a product being put out by an organization representing NHL & NFL teams. Is this the work of Russ Brandon's friend's daughter who undeservedly stumbled into an internship with the Pegulas? I know it's a small thing to nit-pick, but seeing trash like this being published by PSE hammers home that something is fundamentally wrong at the core of how these franchises are run.
Text of the newsletter below for those of you who haven't seen it, bolded emphasis on the parts that made my eyes burn. Syntax, slang, the apparent ignorance of the existence of a thesaurus...
Playoff season is in full swing and we are digging it. The Rochester Americans are killin’ it and are Calder Cup bound. They will wrap up their regular season this weekend and then head to Round 1 of the playoffs on 4/25. We highly recommend grabbing tickets for that game ASAP!
The Beauts totally crushed it this season and made another Isobel Cup Final appearance. The ladies in blue finished their season 12-4.
And of course you can’t forget the Bandits. They have been totally tearing it up in the NLL East Division and are hanging strong in the playoff race. The Bandits head west to Calgary on April 14th to take on the Roughnecks. They will then head back to Banditland on April 21st to take on The Six’s very own Rock. The Bandits will then finish up their regular season on April 28th at KeyBank Center when they take on the Rochester Knighthawks. And did we mention that is Fan Appreciation night? Oh yeah.
No Days Off
Did you really think we were going to sign this newsletter off with H.A.G.S? No way! The NFL Draft is so soon which means football season is right around the corner. Our Street Team will be at the 2018 Buffalo Bills Draft Party presented by Bud Light at the ADPRO Sports Training Center. As always, they’ll be hooking My One Buffalo users up with some sweet swag. If you are attending, make sure you scope them out so you can take home some rad My One Buffalo items.
The Sabres wrapped up their home game schedule last Wednesday and Sabres Fan Appreciation Night was in full swing. Discounted concessions and in-seat giveaways were all up in the arena. Oh, and of course every fan in attendance was hooked up with a sweet Fan’s Choice Dominik Hasek bobblehead courtesy of KeyBank. Since this bobblehead is so sick, we want to give y'all another chance to take one home! Maybe you’re from out of town or maybe you went to the game but still want another. Whatever it may be, tap here for your chance to take home a Hasek bobblehead!
