Buffalo - October 22, 2013 - As you may have heard, Lindy Ruff is coming back to Buffalo on Monday. His return is expected to be accompanied by a tribute from the team, which is nice.

Eric, from 3rd Man In, has came up with a little event to coincide with Ruff's returnon Monday. Eric, along with many additional members of the Basement Brigade will be calling for fans to break out their red and black Sabres gear as a way to honor the team's former uniforms on a night when their former coach - who coached plenty of teams in those colors - returns to Buffalo.

Head over to 3rd Man In to get more of the specific details, but it is really quite simple. Pull out your old red and black gear from the late 90s and early 00s and wear it to Monday's game. You may not have liked the red and black jerseys, but no one liked the Slug jerseys and plenty of lemmings went out and bought them, didn't they? This is a cool little idea that isn't a protest, complaint or anything else but a way to honor what may just be the most successful era in team history.

In the event you didn't hit the link to Eric's site the first two times, here it is again:Basement Brigade presents Black & Red Night on October 28
