Let’s talk about the photo that Andy Gray of Sports Illustrated posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
Gray is definitely worth a follow if you’re on Twitter. If you’re not or if you missed anything from Wednesday, I put together a Storify page that has all the photos he shared. Definitely check that out. Okay, now to the photo above.
I have so many questions.
The basic story, I’m guessing, is that SI wanted to point out the transition between the old blue and gold color scheme to the red and black the Sabres sported when Marine Midland Arena first opened. What I can’t possibly explain is the following:
1) Numbered silk bathrobes
2) Dominik Hasek’s face
3) The disco ball at top right
I really hope Pegula kept that disco ball in place when locker room renovations were made last year. I don’t think any photo will ever match this beauty in terms of awkwardness, but it’s pretty close. Then again neither Hasek or Satan ever rocked the Pamela Anderson barbed wire tat.
