2005 Buffalo Bandits Season
The Buffalo Bandits are a lacrosse team based in Buffalo playing in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The 2005 season was the 14th in franchise history.
The Bandits finished second in the east after stellar seasons from veterans John Tavares and Steve Dietrich, who was named Goaltender of the Year. They hosted the Rochester Knighthawks in the division semi-final game, but the Knighthawks defeated the Bandits 19-14, winning the right to face the eventual champion Toronto Rock in the division finals.

“As I started with her out of the city warmly enveloped in buffalo furs, I could not but think how nice it would be to drive on and on, so that nobody should ever catch us.”
—Anthony Trollope (18151882)
“The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
“Let us have a good many maples and hickories and scarlet oaks, then, I say. Blaze away! Shall that dirty roll of bunting in the gun-house be all the colors a village can display? A village is not complete, unless it have these trees to mark the season in it. They are important, like the town clock. A village that has them not will not be found to work well. It has a screw loose, an essential part is wanting.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
