The American Hockey Fan "Buy Me a Beer Challenge!"

OK- here's how it works, people.

Myself, Ben from Unleashed , and Jack from Kukoda.com are attending the Devils/Sabres game this Tuesday December 12th at the Meadowlands. Ben is a Devils fan, Jack is a Sabres fan, and I'm a fan of great hockey and frosty beer.

Seeing as the Devils have just won five straight, ( including a 5-1 manhandling of the Boston Bruins this weekend ,) and the Sabres are one of the top three teams in the NHL this year, it looks like I'll be guaranteed at least one of those things.

It's up to you, dear reader, to provide the other.

You heard me.

If you're a fan of what I do on this blog, well, it's the holiday season, and this is your chance to give back. Remember, I write this blog for free, and present it to you commercial free, intentionally forgoing the literally tens of dollars a year I could be pulling in from Google Ads. Therefore, if you enjoy this blog, and are either attending the Devils-Sabres game or know someone who will be who is willing to act as your representative, read on:

The first fan of this blog (or their representative) to bring a cold draft beer to me, Ritch Duncan, at Section 206, row 11, seats 3-6, (I will be wearing a black Boston Bruins sweatshirt) at any time during the Devils Sabres game on December 12th, 2006 will win the following (optional) prizes:

1) At least one (1) picture with me (that will be published on this blog) .

2) At least one (1) paragraph (published on this blog) of effusive, genuine praise, saluting you (or your business or project) for your courage, good taste and strength of character.

3) The thanks of a grateful nation.

The second fan of this blog (or their representative) who brings a cold draft beer to me at Section 206, row 11, seats 3-6, will win the following prizes:

1) At least one (1) picture with me (that will be published on this blog) .

2) At least one (1) paragraph (published on this blog) of effusive, genuine praise, saluting you (or your business or project) for your courage, good taste and strength of character.

3) The thanks of a grateful nation.

The third fan of this blog (or their representative) who brings a cold draft beer to me at Section 206, row 11, seats 3-6, will win the following prizes:

1) At least one (1) picture with me (that will be published on this blog) .

2) At least one (1) paragraph (published on this blog) of effusive, genuine praise, saluting you (or your business or project) for your courage, good taste and strength of character.

3) The thanks of a grateful nation.

Lather, rinse and repeat, folks.

I'll be there all night.

NOTE: If you are not attending Tuesday's Devils game and do not know anyone who is, the American Hockey Fan "Buy me a Beer Challenge" will be repeated December 23rd at 7:00 PM at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston. Seat location will be given out closer to gametime, provided that this potentially wonderful scam bear fruit.

And by fruit, I mean, of course, free beer.

Stop by!

It'll be fun to see you.

This is the best scam... I mean contest I have ever heard of. If it works, you are a genius, if it doesn't then your just some guy who can type which puts you slightly above some sort of primate.

I can't believe you're one of those guys that wears clothing from a team that isn't even playing to a game...do you wear a Metallica shirt to a G n R concert too? I've lost a little respect for you..but still love the blog :)

What am I supposed to wear, a Devils jersey? I have one, but that might make me a little harder to spot. I haven't made up my American Hockey Fan Hoodies yet, so I went with the Bruins one.

Still, if you show up at my seat with a beer for me tonight, I will write a paragraph of effusive praise in favor of your opinion.

Living in Ottawa it might be a little hard to get there in time sorry.

Does that mean I need to fly to Germany so I can wear my Landshut Cannibals jersey? No fair!

I'll buy you a beer (and it would be the first one I've ever bought in an arena, and the last...I don't like beer), but you'll have to come to a Las Vegas Wranglers game to get it.

Buy a beer for a guy in a Boston jersey? Good Lord, they would kick me out of Buffalo. I'll just slip Kukoda a fin if he's ever in town.
