ESPN's SportsCenter visits Buffalo to talk to Sabres fans about rooting against their team

During ESPN's SportsCenter late Monday night, just after the Buffalo Sabres won in Arizona to come within four points of what for many fans is coveted last-pace spot, the program ran a segment from Buffalo featuring Sabres fans.

Reese Waters, who describes himself as a comedian and "SportsCenter Fan Correspondent" on his Twitter account, visited Buffalo to find out why -- as was the case last Thursday at First Niagara Center --  some Sabres fans have been rooting against their team.

Video of the segment, which was not available this morning, is now here.

The segment that aired Monday night opened with Waters talking in front of the Sabres logo painted on the wall of the Anchor Bar, and included a short clip of fans reacting positively to a Coyotes goal. Waters and his crew also visited Pearl Street Grill & Brewery.

Here's a wrapup via tweets from myself, Waters and even one of the fans featured in the segment.
