BUFFALO, N.Y. - There's a new name wearing Sabres colors this season. His name is Tyler Ryan Colson. The reason is simple. His dad, Jeff's favorite player is Tyler Myers, Mom Lisa's favorite is Ryan Miller. Yes, this is truly a Sabre-crazy family, fanaticism that has been passed from generation to generation.
Wednesday the Colson family met Tyler Ryan's namesakes thanks to the Kalieda Buffalo Baby-Buffalo Sabres Facebook photo contest. Parents of children born at Women and Children's Hospital over the past 5 years were encouraged to send in a picture.
So Lisa sent in this photo collage and went to work. "I kept sharing and sharing and sharing it and it just worked,!"
And because of that The Colson family won this visit from Ryan Miller and Tyler Myers, along with some autographed Sabre memorabilia.
