John: What's up?
Joe: I watched the Sabres game from three different locations!
John: What was the result?
Joe: We won! 4-1! WOOOO!
John: Sweet! What's the series score?
Joe: This was game 1. Great way to start.
Joe: We watched the 1st period from an outdoor screen next to the arena. It was so fucking cold.
John: Oh my God. That is crazy.
Joe: That's Buffalo.
I will say one thing for that outdoor viewing experience: it wasn't snowing. It's snowing now, as I type this (sigh), but it wasn't snowing last night as several dozen hardy Sabres fans parked themselves right outside the sold-out arena to watch the game on a giant TV screen. I swear to God, we will tailgate anything. My favorite part was the rope line that ran around the perimeter of the officially dsignated courtyard area, beyond which point you couldn't bring your own alcohol. But since you could still see the screen from the sidewalk, people just parked their coolers and had a time. Open container law? Yeah, that's a good one.
