Beyond the stats: @Nickelcitybills Runs a NFL Conditioning Test

When the news about Marcell Dareus failing his conditioning test this past Saturday, I was immediately curious about what an NFL conditioning test is like. I run a fair amount (about 35-40 miles per week currently), and I had a track workout scheduled for my Monday run. Why not try an NFL conditioning test and […]


Second Take with @BradleyGelber – An Average EJ Won’t Cut It

A lot was thrown at us Bills fans over the last week as the team reported to Training Camp 2014. Whether it was Kiko’s injury, how the team plans to split time between all of their RB’s and if the secondary can really replace Jairus Byrd. Despite all that my focus, like many other fans’, […]


My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #1

Who will start at left guard? Can we just say whoever wins this job is probably going to be the crappiest starter on this team? After the disastrous Collin Brown experiment, you’d think the Bills would have a better contingency plan since losing Andy Levitre. Instead, its between Chris Williams (A former 1st round bust) […]


My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #2

Who will replace Kiko Alonso? Ugh. Still kind of sucks, don’t it?  Right now it seems like the fight for the gig is between Nigel Bradham and Preston Brown. Keith Rivers seems to have the weakside LB spot in trenched, so, its down to these guys.


My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #3

Who will start at RT? This has to be a slam dunk, right? Unless Cyrus Kouandjio comes in 50lbs overweight and is reeking of the weed Marcell Dareus smokes, he’s your starting RT. You don’t draft a tackle in the 2nd round to have them sit during their first year. Of course, that’s a bit […]


@2ITB_Buffalo: Breaking down the rumored sites for the Bills next home

It’s the elephant in the room when it comes to discussing the future of the Bills in Buffalo. Finding a solution to where the Bills will be playing their games for the foreseeable future has presented a myriad of questions, proposals and debates throughout Western New York and it doesn’t appear we’re collectively closer to […]

New York Yankees v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Derek Jeter to a Non-Yankees fan

With this being the final All-Star game in Derek Jeter’s legendary career, I wanted to take a moment to remember the player from the perspective of a non-Yankees fan. I am an Atlanta Braves fan, have been since I found TBS (Adelphia Ch. 23) in the early 1990’s. 


My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #4

Don’t let the title fool you. I’m not happy about blogging about training camp as I have a known disdain for the fake pageantry that leads into the regular season. Yet, even with my dislike for the preseason hype, I still feel a bit lethargic in regards to blogging. Nothing is resonating with me. This […]

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Fans (Over)Reaction

You may or may not have heard that some guy by the name of “Lebron James” made some big decision to go back to Cleveland on Friday. Upon doing so, some genius in Miami defaced a mural (which included Lebron, D-Wade, Chris Bosh & head coach Erik Spoelstra) that took an artist over 2 years […]


@2ITB_Buffalo: Q&A about Brendan Lemieux with @VeryBarrieColts

Buffalo’s selection of Sam Reinhart brought the expected media crush upon the club. Buffalo hadn’t picked as high as second overall since they drafted Pierre Turgeon first overall in 1987. However, it was Tim Murray’s first selection on day two of the draft that has been garnering quite a bit of attention.

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Donte Whitner… Professional Twitter Troll

Over the weekend while most of us were enjoying some BBQ’ing and pool time with family and friends, former Buffalo Bills’ & current Cleveland Browns’ Safety Donte Whitner was on Twitter trolling Bills fans about moving to Toronto. Seriously, it’s a holiday weekend and the guy is sitting on his computer and, or phone going […]

Second Take With @BradleyGelber – Soccer: A Closed Minded Bigots Worst Nightmare

Back on Thursday the United States managed to advance to the World Cup’s round of 16 for the second consecutive year, marking the first time the USA had ever done that. While most of the country was embracing “soccer fever,” some close-minded people, and one extremely close-minded woman in particular, have been trying to squash […]
