The 2022 National Lacrosse League season is underway and this year, the Buffalo Bandits have been able to do something that no other team can say they've done.

Buffalo sports fans have seemingly been cursed.  For years now, plenty of people have screamed that they want to see a Buffalo team win "just one before I die."  What many of them don't realize is that we already have.

Bandits fans will be sure to remind you that they've won 4 championships throughout their time in the National Lacrosse League (NLL) and even more division championships.

They're trending in the right direction this year too!  They've already done what no other team in the league has been able to do.  They've remained undefeated through 6 games.  It's the first time they've been able to do it since 1996.

A lot of it has to do with their goalie Matt Vinc who leads the league in wins with six, is third in save percentage at .811, and fourth in goals-against average at 9.63.

Want to go see them and support them throughout the rest of the season?  Their next game is Saturday night against the Toronto Rock.  The rest of the schedule looks like this:
