I really can't explain it. Why should a grown man care so much about the game by game travails of a bunch of young guys in uniforms playing a sport? I wish it wasn't that way - but I can't help it. In case anybody didn't know, I admit it - I'm a fan of the Buffalo Sabres. I've been a fan since they entered the NHL in 1970. They've provided some incredible thrills over the years and probably just as many disappointments. I wanted to punch something after their dismal game against the St. Louis Blues last Friday.
