For Bills, Marrone, anything can happen


I've watched the last two Bills games from a bar. For the first of them, the Thursday night game in Miami, the place was very busy. A friend of mine is a bartender there, and at halftime, with the Bills leading 6-3, he had a minute to chat.

"What do you think so far?", he asked me.

"I think whatever we're going to care about from this game hasn't happened

Enemkpali no doubt a risk, but what's the reward?


When Kiko Alonso got hurt and was lost for the 2014 season, most Bills fans moaned. All the spoken and tweeted words can be summed up with just two: Why us? Alonso, both an integral player on the 2013 Bills' Top 10 defense and a super-popular one with fans, would be no help to a team with a growing number of defensive stars in the primes of their careers, not to mention one on a then-14 year

"Not in Order", the 2014 NFL highlight-show titles


Let's see how NFL teams did naming their 2014 NFL Films-produced highlight shows. Some titles were blunt and obvious, others read like the maker thought he was Stanley Kubrick, and overall, the NFL did its thing misleading fans into thinking all 32 teams are either good or about to be good.

I'll tell you up front, some great names weren't chosen. "Member

Jack Eichel's Sabres uniform-number options, ranked


In three nights the Sabres will draft Jack Eichel. Then, presumably, they will fly him to Buffalo and sign him, formally ending his Boston University career. I might suggest that next would come a celebratory beer, but because Eichel is only 18 it will only be everyone else in Buffalo that's drinking.

It is the 2015 draft, so you might see Eichel himself, right after being chosen, holding

Hawks shaking off embarrassment, apparently


So it's June 2015, and the Chicago Blackhawks Monday night won their third Stanley Cup in six years. They are the National Hockey League franchise all others aspire to be: iconic, full of tradition, great.

They stand atop the league's 30 clubs. At the bottom, by performance anyway, are the Buffalo Sabres.

You all read and heard it the last few months just like I did: despite the

Is Buffalo's secret getting out?


As I write to you today the sun is shining on my back. Outside to my right, some fruit trees. To my left, the Upper Niagara River. It's a pleasant 56 degrees, climbing toward a predicted 70. A woman behind me leaving the bank this morning complained that it wasn't warmer out. "It's summer!", she exclaimed.

"Almost," I replied.

"Yes it is summer!",

NHL playoffs a yawn-a-thon




The playoffs have been....well.....unexciting
 

Sabres shouldn't give lottery a second thought


If cigars didn't turn my stomach I'd be up for one. It's time to light a smoke, squint, and sit with what the Sabres have accomplished.

Despite the incessant ink-stained protestations that have hassled them for months, the Sabres greet this day in prime position for a rise to power. It wasn't easy, and it wasn't popular, but they did exactly what they should have: take it

If Sabres don't win lottery, here's who should


Hello, how are enjoying your day?

Here, skies are bright and it's just not the weather. Not everything in life is hockey, no, but for the last couple of months I've felt like it is. I stepped, willingly, into the cauldron that was the controversial 2014-15 Sabres season, and when the race for last place tightened in recent weeks, because of my job I had no way out. I lost sleep. I was

Last-place buzz about to get louder


Wasn't it fun being on ESPN last week? Who knew they still had our address?

Last Thursday's overtime Sabres loss to Arizona provided good fodder for national sports talk, with fans openly rooting for the opponent. Kornheiser and Wilbon discussed our emotions on "PTI", and Van Pelt and Russillo did the same on their ESPN Radio show. So did Mike Greenberg on his, which
Now that EJ Manuel is starting Saturday, do you think he can win the job?
  Yes. Its truly wide open going into this game.
  No. I think he's clearly the number 3 man in the competition.
