I want to start this post with a big thanks to the guys over at the Red Scarf Union. What started as a pipe dream in the SensChirp comment section quickly became a reality and it could not have happened without their help.
Steve, Michael and Chris were all fantastic throughout the planning and organizing of this trip and really helped bring this thing together. And thanks to Mike from the Sens for supplying some awesome prizes along the way. Your karaoke performance (which is on tape by the way) will live in my memory for years to come.
A huge thanks to the fans on the bus. I know the planning of this trip was a little sketchy at times but you were all patient throughout and really helped this trip come together. Great spirit on the way down and just amazing at the game. I've heard we made quite the impression on the fans and media in Binghamton!
I'd like to close out this post by thanking the fans of the Binghamton Senators. I have been to a ton of hockey games in my day but this really will go down as one of my all-time favourite hockey memories. From the hockey talks with die hard Bingo fans in the beer line, to the healthy scratches (Brodeur, Cowick, Hale) waving to us during the game, to the owner of the team greeting us as we got off the bus, it really was a first class experience the whole way.
So thanks again to the RSU, to the SensChirp readers that came along and to the city of Binghamton.
Hope to see you all again in Round 3!
