The Bandettes at the Bandits-Stealth game

After a strong start to the season, the Bandits have fallen behind in the race for the lead in the NLL East with a 11-10 OT loss to the Washington Stealth in the First Niagara Center last night.

After making it to the First Niagara Center, it was only a short wait before the NLL's top dance team, the Buffalo Bandettes, came out to pose for photos and sign autographs for the fans coming into the game. First, I spent some time visiting with Kirsten's line, including reigning Bandette of The Week Lauren K. While I was visiting, Bandettes alumnus Jessica H (2008-11) came by for a visit on her way into the game.

After some photos with them and talking with a few of the girls, I made my way over to the other side of the 100 level escalators and spent some time with Lauren B's line. I got to spend a little bit of time talking with Melissa, a rookie on the squad this year who, before trying out for the Bandettes, tried out for the Jills last spring. She's pretty happy the way things turned out making the Bandettes.

After they headed in to get ready for the game (show up before 7 to meet the Bandettes), I made my way to my seat and was there when the Bandettes came out for pregame and to get some photos.

For pregame, the Bandits actually turned the lighting down and it made for a pretty cool effect on the Bandettes and their bright orange tops, making them practically glow in the dark.

Next up for the Bandettes, while the Bandits are off for a few weeks as a team after next week's matchup in Philly, the Bandettes will be in action at the NLL All-Star game on February 25th at First Niagara Center. Keep in mind the game starts at 7 instead of 7:30 so plan accordingly
