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 […]
A few years back, I was on the subway in NYC with my younger cousin who was visiting me on spring break. Without question, he’s my favorite cousin. He is the younger brother I always wanted. I’m not exactly sure what we were talking about, but my cousin used a certain description three times. I […]
I don’t know if you guys have noticed or not, but it’s not the happiest of times to be a Buffalo sports fan. Over the past year or so, not only have the teams been bad, the conversation around the teams has been completely miserable. People lost patience with Terry Pegula, Lindy Ruff was fired, […]
Mike McKenzie While a huge long-shot, would Melo to Miami be good or bad for the NBA?
Dan Parker: Do you think mike Williams will be a key contributor to the offense this season?
It’s that time of year again folks. The time where we fill out our brackets and hope by some miraculous touch of divine intervention that we actually have a shot at picking some of the NCAA tournament games correctly. I am not a college basketball enthusiast. At all. I’ll watch the occasional game here, […]
Frankjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj started doing the mailbag back in November, but he gave up and was/is probably drunk, so, I'm here to pick up the pieces. For this edition I tackle hard-hitting questions from Rocky taking steroids to the Bills offseason needs to the odds of Ryan Miller getting traded. Enjoy and tell a friend. Jim Barg […]
I am just going to come right out and say it… I do not care for the Olympics. Winter or summer, doesn’t matter to me. The one minor exception is hockey because it’s basically the NHL on speed, with more ice to play on and fewer restrictions. Other than that though, the Olympics could honestly […]
(Logo above courtesy of The Buffalo Sports Museum) In nearly three weeks the Sabres will officially grace the world with their new third jerseys. Yes, the gold and blue, painfully leaked and over-designed uniform will finally hit the ice on November 24. This is approximately the 350th different jersey the Sabres have donned in their […]
There’s a diamond in the rough in the WNY sports scene that has the potential to become one of the preeminent pieces of the athletic community in the region. It’s a team simultaneously fighting for the attention of WNY sports fans and a larger identity crisis. As the years have ticked by, UB has battled […]
As most of you know, I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan. After I watched the first two seasons, I needed to keep my fetish going by hitting the Fire and Ice series. After reading the books, I was even more captivated by the stories and their amazing attention to detail. My expectations for the […]
I had a nightmare just over 20 months ago to the date. At least I thought it was. After giving a long, blank stare at my 40-inch Samsung I came to the realization that what just happened was reality — and what a harsh one it was. On Sept. 28, 2011, I, along with baseball […]
This piece has zero to do with sports so if you are looking for hot takes on prospects and OTAs, get lost…But come back here on Monday! I’ve always viewed certain dates as checkpoints more than celebrations. Maybe I’m just someone who looks back at things more than looking forward to what is on the […]
I have a Sunday morning routine. I roll out of bed, go to the bathroom, and brew a cup of coffee while watering my plants. Once coffee is in-hand and the plants are properly fed, I head straight to my computer. It is a pretty mundane beginning to my day. Once I open up my […]
