The new Sabres season begins in a little over a week.  There is a lot of excitement from hockey fans, thanks to all the new additions.  But sports humorist Jeff Wozer has discovered that the Sabres marketing team, when looking for a new slogan for the season, did miss the net on a few ideas.

• Come watch millionaires dressed in padded shorts.

• More Swedes than an Ikea board meeting.

• If the game sucks you can always visit Shark Girl.

• We’re hotter than Rob Ryan at a July 4th picnic dressed in corduroy.

• Unlike the Bills, our head coach has hair.

• Our beer vendors don’t check IDs.

• S.A.B.R.E.S.: See A Billionaire’s Really Expensive Splurge.

• Our organist learned a new song.

• No Russ Brandon.

• KeyBank Center – colder than an Alaskan igloo’s toilet seat.
