It’s been a few weeks now since the Buffalo Bills played their final snap in a 42-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. Since then, it’s been an all too predictable start to the AFC East “offseason.” The New England Patriots are headed back to another Super Bowl, and the New York Jets are, well, still...

Nickell Robey-Coleman on Sunday reminded me of Trey Teague. Not because I was in a game of "name a former Bill" that lasted for hours until Teague was mentioned, although I wouldn't be surprised (or insulted) if you thought that. Instead, it's a Bills play from 2004 -- a play that technically didn'...

When I was a kid and had a few bucks in my pocket, my mom used to always tell me, “don't spend all your money all at once.” That wasn't easy, since I really wanted that new Easton baseball bat or brand-new Walkman (look it up, kids).

The Buffalo Sabres beat the Calgary Flames last night 4-3 in overtime. Jack Eichel scored the winner. What follows is a running commentary from around the time I got home last night. I hope you like it. The game will not start until after 9:30 p.m. That is late for me. I mean, I don’t go to bed...

Calgary, AB (WGR 550) - In the first intermission when I was on with Brian Koziol I talked about Jack Eichel hitting the post on a clear breakaway and missing over the net when Sam Reinhart set him up alone in front. I talked about how your superstar player has to come through for you on those...
