Thrashers vs Sabres....SERIES SWEEP!!

It's commonly known, not only in Atlanta but in all of the league, that Buffalo fans are the worst visiting fans. At the last game beer was dumped on kids, fights broke out, and they were just generally miserable human beings. Fortunately, we beat them. That USUALLY shuts them up. The guy behind me was such a miserable bastard I swore I'd never go to another game when they came to Phillips.

Well, I can't abandon my guys like that so of COURSE I came to the next game.

And of course the fans were there. Kerry Outen luckily was quick enough to snap a picture of these assclowns. Thanks for letting me use the pic!

Sign FAIL!

OMG what is that guy doing to that buffalo??

At first we thought this sign said "You can take the girls out of Buffalo but you can't take the Sabers out of the girls." It was a lot funnier when I thought it said that. The chick on the left and I would meet again later.

After being in Nashville, Jersey and Philly...I was homesick! It was good to be back in my home arena and see all the fans that I know and am used to seeing.

I'm a goalie dork and one of the things I was most excited about was seeing our ginourmous (6'5'') Chicago Wolves back up goalie, Dan Turple. We usually only see him at prospect camps. I love his last name. It rhymes with Purple and it reminds me of a Pokemon. "Turple" sounds like a cute little Pokemon. I usually refer to him as Turple Turple.

Welcome back to Atlanta Turple Turple!

Turple: Hey man! I'm Dan Turple
Turple: I'm so excited to be here. This is great, isn't it?
Turple: Okay, catch you later.

"Wow, I thought this was a home game for the Thrashers. What's that guy doing to that buffalo?"

Moose had no time for winks and smiles, he's all business. With Kari down due to an injury, Moose has been our starter and he's been fantastic.

Moose took a shot to the head, you can see the ding in his paint job in the front.

Extreme Moose-up

Toby skating up to take a shot

Samela waiting for his turn.

It's coming right for ya, Moose!

Oysters winding up for a shot at the net.

Kaptain Kovalchuk.

Moose doing his "Moose Cruise." He does this bent over cruise around the ice a lot.

Stuart and Hainsey.

Baby Bogo has become a beast! His quote from the AJC:
"You’ve got to play nasty and put guys on their back. If he doesn’t like that style, I don’t know, too bad for him.”
Bogo manhandled one of the Sabres down to the ice and just stood over him glaring. AWESOME!

Boultsie: God Buffalo fans suck.
Hainsey: Yeah, at least there aren't as many Buffalo fans as there were Wings fans.
Boultsie: True dat. Did you see what that guy was doing to that buffalo??
Hainsey: What, where?

Rich Peverley. We talked to a few fans while we were in Nashville and found out they were super upset about losing Pevs. Good for us!

On to the game!

We set in Section 119, Row E. 5 seats from the glass, NICE! Fun for watching, too many posts for good picture taking.

Behind us were the most obnoxious fans on the face of the earth. They showed up completely and ridiculously intoxicated. They sounded like rednecks straight from the trailer park, but were wearing Buffalo shirts. The drunker of the two said it was his first hockey game. The other guy had the loudest voice I'd ever heard. I didn't think it was humanly possible to be that loud. He seemed to have a basic understanding of what was going on and about the only thing he could yell over and over was "CLEAR IT" and "MILLER." The drunker of the two kept standing up in the middle of the game and we were yelling "sit down, puck in play." AWFUL!

I was on the end where the Thrashers attack twice so that means I got lots of shots of everyone's favorite emo-looking photography loving goalie, Ryan Miller. I like Miller, too bad he's on the Sabres. I love his commercial.

Yes Ryan, your hair looks fine.

Getting his mask on

Boultsie giving Butler a little face wash.

Butler didn't appreciate it much so they have a conversation.

Face off

I know Ryan, it does suck you have to have such awful fans.

2nd period! That means I have Moose on my side.

Johan is a thirsty little Moose and I took about 292,841 pics of him drinking. Instead of trying to choose my favorites, I decided to just use them all and make a montage.

Moose tracking the puck.

More Moose action shots.

Good job Moose, get that nasty puck out of there.

Our newest Thrasher, Anssi Samela went down. Fortunately he was back on the ice later, but has missed two games now due to the dreaded "upper body injury."

Moose working hard.

During stopages of play, Moose skates intenselyback and forth on the blue line.

No time for ice girls today! He's in the zone.

Moose stopping the action.

For the ladies!

In addition to being thirsty, goalies get HOT! They are on the ice the whole game, working hard and wearing all that equipment. Sometimes they have cool themselves off.

Again, I couldn't pick a favorite, so I made a montage. I find it helps the spirit of the montage to have this playing in the background when you watch:

3rd period! Ryan Miller is back. What did you say about my momma??

Toby and Jochen Hecht waiting for the face off.

Face off.

Thrashers win 3-2 in overtime! With this win the Thrashers won all 5 games of the series this year. We have a 12-3-3 home record against them, not to shabby. Bring on Philly! We are gonna beat that streak next season, I can feel it.

We win, no road trip that means...GUEST! I think Boultsie just likes stopping buy to get out of the house. He's been there as a guest twice and just hanging out once.

Now that the Thrashers are winning, the post game show is crowded. It used to be me and the same 10-15 dedicated fans there, even on a weekend. Now it's the middle of the week and place is slammed pack. Welcome to the season assholes. ANYWAY. We come in and the front is pretty full so we snag a table in the back. I can go up to the front to take pics. Shauna and Paula go out to smoke and me and Serge wait. Two girls ask if they can share the table, sure. The post game show has several Buffalo fans there, know how hard it is to get rid of roaches. One guy comes in waiving a flag yelling about how Buffalo has the greatest fans in the world. I yell to go back to his burned out shit hole. He yells then leaves.

Remember our friend with the Buffalo sign? She can be seen here looking at Hainsey's ass and looking obscene.

She comes in Taco Mac waiving her sign and yelling about how awesome the Sabres are. My new friend Brittney that asked to sit at my table yells "Buffalo Sucks!" Trashy fan leans over me and proceeds to yell:

Trashy Fan: How many times have you been in the play offs? How many times have you been to the play offs?
Brittney: "How many times are you going this year?"
Trashy Fan: "Do you want to take this outside?"
Brittney: "Sure."
Trashy's friend drags her off but not before she starts yelling "have another doughnut. Why don't you eat another doughnut, fat ass" at Brittney. I yelled "Stay classy, Buffalo."

So fortunately no blood was spilled and we got to see Boulton.

Boultsie talking to Darren Elliot. I've had requests for more Darren pics. I'm MORE than happy to oblige.

Boultsie getting his headset ready.

Boultsie looking like he is thinking "Flash that shit in my eyes ONE MORE TIME."

Funniest thing about Buffalo fans...what big assholes they become when trying to defend themselves when you tell them they are assholes.
My husband's favorite Buffalo joke:
What is Buffalo's biggest export?
Answer: Assholes!

Oh, GOD - those 2 dingbats were sitting down in front of us in club that game - they were probably soused when they got to Taco Mac.

Honestly, I read that sign the same way that you did. It's amazing how some people can be so arrogant about their team even AFTER being swept in a season series. I love my Blues, but I'd never yell at a Thrashers fan in Philips - that's moronic and pretty damned rude. So many comebacks you could have had for them in Taco Mac... like "Can't take the Sabres fan out of the girl? Looks like you haven't had one in you for a while." Etc.

I'm bad, I know.

She was SUCH a piece of trash.

Sunshine36616 April 5, 2009 at 5:59 PM  

Was that section 102? That's usually where we sit if I have club tickets. Thank god I wasn't over there this time.
I will be there for the Washington game. Will you be there?

Candace April 5, 2009 at 7:07 PM  

Oh, holy hell....I don't know when I've laughed this hard in a while :-) Um, yeah....Buffalo, you're doing a lot to influence me to come to your city to watch a game....NOT!!! Loved the pics, girl....and yeah, we always need MORE Darren!!! :-)

Ms. Conduct April 6, 2009 at 5:18 AM  

Ha! Good stuff. I just found your blog. The Turple stuff is hilarious.

mean mom productions April 6, 2009 at 7:01 AM  

i have to agree that most buffalo fans are jerks but I know one. The family is divided between coyotes, red wings, and sabers. I remember when we put the "shut" up win over the sabers. It was so sweet!!!

Shiona April 6, 2009 at 6:44 PM  

I just wanna say that Buffalo is the closest team to me and I won't be darkening their doorsteps any time soon. Funny stuff!
