Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN/WGR) - Before the season gets underway, The Buffalo Sabres are delivering for their fans. Literally.
Buffalo Sabres players and brass are spending their Saturday delivering season tickets to some of their faithful fans. Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller and others are surprising the fans by showing up at their homes to hand deliver their season tickets. In porevious season the program was held on weekdays, but the Saturday delivery insures more fans will be around for the surprise.
During his weekly radio program "The Hobby" on WGR SportsRadio 550, host Mike Schopp was paid a visit by #26 Thomas Vanek. Vanek showed up at the WGR studios with Schopp's tickets in-hand and joined him for some 'card talk'.
The Sabres open their preseason in Montreal Sunday.
