Simply Awesome

Well, in the worlds of my good friend Charlie - there you go!

What a long and winding road it has been to get to this point. From the Celsius designs that had us all dreaming of how great a return to blue and gold could be, to the unfathomable disappointment we all felt when the slug leaked its way onto the internet. From the lies and empty promises of Larry Quinn regarding how we got to that point, to the revelations of Reebok using the Sabres as their unfortunate guinea pig in their ill-conceived (and ill-received) EDGE uniforms.

And here we are, staring at what the Sabres should have gone with from the beginning.

I for one could not be more pleased with what they've come up with here. I look forward to purchasing mine, and I hope everyone out there reading this does as well.

The 40th Anniversary of the Sabres is right around the corner. Personally, nothing would make me happier than the Sabres announcing these new jerseys as the team's ONLY home jerseys, with a road white to match, and the slug being salted once and for all. We can dream.

It's not that far-fetched. The first steps have already been taken.

Go Sabres.
