SABRES FAN STORIES
FAN PROFILE: TOM GEIGER
Tom Geiger from Mt. Brydges, Ont.

Name: Tom Geiger
Age: 21
Location: Mt. Brydges, Ont.

Tom Geiger is a massive Sabres fan who lives in Mt. Brydges, Ont., just west of London. He has been a fan ever since his first trip to HSBC Arena 11 years ago where he was consumed by the passion for the team. Tom is a huge supporter of Sabres owner Terry Pegula and team president Ted Black, and says he respects their commitment to winning and has faith in these individuals to steer the team in the right direction. Tom describes the struggles he has being a Sabres fan in Southern Ontario, especially since he is surrounded by Red Wings and Maple Leafs fans, and doesn’t always have people to analyze and discuss Sabres games with. Even on a student budget, Tom still finds a way to purchase the NHL Centre Ice package so that he never misses a game. It’s also not uncommon for Geiger and his friends to make the drive down the QEW a few times a year, and fuel up at a local watering hole before the games. His favorite Sabres moment of all-time was Jason Pominville’s overtime winner against the Senators in the 2006 Eastern Conference semifinals. The significance of that goal, combined with broadcaster Rick Jeanneret’s call made it an unforgettable experience for Tom. Other special Sabres moments include being in attendance last season for Mikhail Grigorenko’s first NHL goal, and attending a playoff game in 2011. Tom owns three Sabres jerseys and numerous t-shirts, ticket stubs and game programs he has saved throughout the years.
