from Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge at the Buffalo News,
So I thought I had struck paydirt. How wrong I was. Went into the vestible and the 20 or so doors leading to the parking lot were not padlocked but they were all locked. OK, so I turned around to go back into the concourse and see if there were any other open doors. Uh-oh. Here’s where the problem began.
The doors back into the concourse locked behind me. The doors to the parking lot were locked. I was stuck in the vestibule. Picture an area roughly the width of the gate area inside the HSBC Arena pavilion. So I started banging on the doors leading back inside and yelling. No one around. Not a soul. There’s a stairway leading downstairs by a couple restaurants and the MSG studio. No one around. Not a soul.
My flight from JFK was in the 10 p.m. range so that wasn’t an issue—unless I spent hours inside. And how was I getting out? I had no choice. I dialed 911. Nassau County 911 was a little confused.
“There’s nothing going on at the Coliseum.” Um, there was a hockey game.
