The Least They Could Do

I don't who decided to sell tickets for the Ice Bowl Game online in blocks of 50 and thus screwed myself and many deserving Sabres fans out of face priced tickets to the game ($150 tickets for the nosebleeds? Fuck that! Those are Stanley Cup Final ticket prices!), but somebody did and I will hold a grudge against them in perpetuity. That doesn't mean that I won't enjoy the game however, and the Sabres have a great idea:

Fans will be able to watch the game (at the HSBC obviously) on the new HD
video scoreboard, while listening to the synched-up radio coverage of Sabres
broadcasters Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neale (fucking right!). The arena will
operate just like a regular home game, including game presentation elements and
Sabretooth. All arena concessions will be open throughout the game, as will the
Sabres Store. The unique game-day atmosphere will also include games for the
kids, and a Sabres Autographed Puck Surprise.

Tickets are $5, it's all for charity, and you get a Sabres alumi game for a warm-up. It's all bloody brilliant if you ask me.
