We went to the Sabres game on 12/17 and were amazed at the # of Sabres fans. Seems like 1/4 to 1/3 of the crowd was Sabres fans. Then I thought about it and it hit me, the majority of those fans are Buffalo transplants that moved and currently live here.

I sold those tix to a Sabres fan... Nice lady, if a bit misguided.

Boston and Philly have the loudest visiting fans in PNC Arena, it seems.
I always say that that is because they ruint their home cities which aren't worth living in, and they cannot afford hockey games there, so they come here for QOL.

I'm a homer, "Root, Root, Root for the Home Team" sort of guy myself. Like ponying up for a North Carolina driver's license and plate, it's part of assimilating.
