Bonnie, will you be eating at the Festival? If not, Shelton Winery has a nice lunch at the Harvest Grill and Wolf's Lair in Dobson does as well. Have fun at the event, I hope your weather is good...we have sure been getting the rain for the last two weeks!

Bonnie, We went out to eat last Sat. night and there was a limo out front with Hurricanes flags on it.

Inside, there was a VIP room with several people with 'Canes jackets on.

I felt sorry for them later that night when I found out that was the only game in the series that they lost, and it appeared to be a big night out for 'Canes bigwigs.

They are a client of my husband's, but he has only to one game - enjoyed it immensely.

I'm sure you WON'T have to do this, but just in case, you could send peanut brittle, Duplin Wine Cellars wine, boiled peanuts, Moon Pie, pecan log, or maybe half a hog!

I'm seeing a lot more Canes flags and car magnets. And I know Bonnie will enjoy the sponge candy.

Bonnie, radio station 102.9 has the games. I know it's not tv, but maybe you could listen to the game on the way home from your trip.

Will be travelin' (we have to keep this travel related) to my family room on Saturday to watch the Sabres win! Have tickets to game 6 and something tells me it's gonna take the Sabres 6 or 7 games to win the series.. It should be a great series and whoever wins has home ice advantage for the Cup!

Hey Buffalo Girls---any of you interested in playing hockey? I played a few years ago and its a blast but I can't round up enuf women to play. I played on a mostly men's team and its a little too rough for me, especially when you have to get up and go to work the next day.

Go Sabres

Rachel, Sorry, I have never considered hockey, although I do like to play and watch sports. I'm too old at this point to take up something like hockey!

Do I look good in red or white? Bonnie, you should have been rooting for the NJ Devils....I can't help but think that you are one yourself!!!!

Sponge candy is so delectable. You can only get it here, so chances are you'll never experience the little piece of Heaven that it is.....but perhaps, in the true Buffalonian spirit of kindness, I'll send you some anyway

Special note to KathyK and kcapuani: BuffaloGirl to sponge candy is like a fly to cow poop....I've been known to eat it for breakfast! I think Watson's has THE best sponge candy. Really!!!


Rachel: Thanks, but no thanks. I like to ice skate, but play hockey? Not that my butt couldn't use the workout. I broke my leg six months ago and I'm still having a hard time with it. Sigh. I wish I could join you.

Bonnie, have a wonderful time wine tasting tomorrow.

GO SABRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy HURRICANES-BEAT-THE-SABRES Saturday to everyone in Buffalo-land!!!

I won't be going to the Wine Festival, as one of our little group that planned to go has gotten sick, unfortunately. So now I WILL be in front of my wide-screen, dressed all in red-and-white, and ready to rumble at 2:00 PM.

Watch out, Buffalo, there's a HURRICANE(S) coming!!!

GO HURRICANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, yes, BuffaloGirl, speaking of *moi* being devilish, in 2002 when the 'Canes beat Montreal in the semi-finals, I wrapped a gift with the Sports section from the Raleigh News & Observer, (which was, of course, plastered with big old shots of the 'Canes in their Red & White) and mailed it to a friend in Montreal who is a RABID Canadiens fan! (Yes, she did laugh, she really did ... )

Thank you, BuffaloGirl! Your rose, along with two Margaritas, a big glass of wine and a filet mignon really cheered me up ... (I am happy that you're happy ... but I have to admit that I hope you're not THIS happy Monday night! )

CAROLINA HURRICANES 4

BUFFALO SABRES 3



Now, now, now, BuffaloGirl! You are seeing things!!! (Actually, I thought the *bad* calls were pretty evenly split tonight ... but maybe we're all guilty of only seeing what the OTHER team does! )

For you ...

I thought both teams played pretty brilliantly, really. Buffalo is the best team we've played in ages; I will give them that! OMG, the hitting tonight! Can you imagine how black and blue they'll ALL be tomorrow???

GO 'CANES!

I can't wait for game 3 (I have tickets). I hope the officials bring their whistles out for some Carolina penalties. Somehow they missed quite a few tonight. Carolina played a good game, so congratulations to them. They are about to enter a very hostile environment. LETS GO BUFFALO!

Things are definitely heating up, Bonnie. They were all pretty aggressive last night. Of course, my husband and son were wrestling on the couch between periods, so they're probably black and blue, too. (Boys, big and small, just gotta horse around).

KathyK...hostile??? Sabres fans aren't hostile, just dedicated and spirited. Yeahhhh, that's it.
