    They should've used the Sabres' jersey designs that the French Connection actually wore, but otherwise they look really cool. Might have to pick up a case.

    I remember when (Pepsi?) a number of years ago did cans of the various Team Canada Jerseys for the Olympics-it was pretty cool-sounds very similar :)

    Mod note - discussion of quality/taste of beer is more appropriate in the Lounge than BOH.

    In all of my trips to/through Buffalo I've noticed how Labatt is pretty aggressive with advertising in Western NY, no this type of stunt makes sense.

    Labatt USA is based in Buffalo. It's one of the most popular beers there. It holds a Top 5 market share in WNY.

    Those look very cool. Better than my RC Cola Penguins can from last year :laugh:

    That's awesome. I would absolutely buy these if they were available locally.
