It's a tough time to be a Buffalo sports fan. The day after the beloved Bills sold out (figuratively, anyway) by playing in Toronto a report has surfaced to suggest that the Sabers may be up for sale and that Jim Balsillie is front and centre to buy the team.
The key word there being centre, if you follow.
Half the Sabres' season-ticket base lives in Niagara anyway, right? Niagara Falls is 79 miles from the ACC in case you were wondering.
If you are really stuck on Hamilton (which would be appropriate since downtown Hamilton looks pretty much the same as downtown Buffalo), it's easier to pay off one team than two.
