You and your cousin are thinking about doing a quick getaway for your 30 Plus Teams Tour .
You both aren’t sure where you want to go .
Your cousin is thinking of a quick weekend trip to somewhere nearby where you both can catch a basketball or hockey game .
You both live in Western Pennsylvania , not far from the New York and Canadian border .
Neither of you have a passport so Toronto is out of the question .
New York City might be an idea , but you cousin doesn’t want to go there .
She has another idea .
What about Buffalo ?
You think your cousin has lost her mind .
It’s early December and your cousin must think you’re doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour of Miami , Orlando , Jacksonville , or Fort Lauderdale .
Buffalo is the LAST place to be in early November or December .
cousin isn’t worried about the weather though .
She reminds you about the last 30 Plus Teams Tour that you all did.
You know the one in Chicago ?
The weather was horrible but you went to that Chicago Bulls basketball game anyway .
How bad could it be in Buffalo ?
Since the two of you live together , it’s a quick trip to your apartment to throw some clothes into a weekend bag .
You two are going to share the driving .
You’re on the road to the second largest city in New York .
As your cousin is beginning to start the car , you both realize that you haven’t a clue of where you’re going to stay , and if the hockey team in Buffalo , the Sabres , will even be in town .
This is something that no one should ever do on a 30 Plus Teams Tour , let alone a trip to anywhere else .
Never go to a city without a place to stay and always make sure that the team that you want to see is going to be playing at home when you get to that city .
Don’t wait until the very last second to book those sports tickets .
You were all lucky this time to get an inexpensive hotel and even luckier that the Sabres have two games while you’re in town , and they’re not sold out .
Remember the object of your 30 Plus Teams Tour is to see the sights of the city AND most of all to see that hockey , football , baseball , or basketball game .
You’re almost there and your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Buffalo has started off shaky .
But not only did you get the hotel , you all were able to get hockey tickets for Friday night and Saturday night as well .
You both are now thinking of Buffalo Chicken Wings when you get to your hotel .
