  1. Bills confirm new uniform for 2011

    I got an email from the Bills saying "the new uniforms will incorporate the teams storied history while maintaining the signature charging buffalo logo." They will unveil them at a fan event later in the offseason.
  2. Potato Chips

    Like many others have said Lays Salt & Vinegar is my favorite. The only other kind I buy are Cool Ranch Doritos.
  3. "Stuff White People Like"

    I have only played "Ultimate" in PE class in High School but I play Disc Golf at least three times a week in summer.
  4. Biggest sporting events you have attended

    NHL: Game 4 1999 SCF, Sabres won or Game 7 1997 1st Round vs Ottawa, Derek Plante OT Goal sends Sabres into second round NFL: Nothing of note except a few great games that meant nothing because the Bills have been terrible. MLB: Ripken's last game in Toronto. It was my first ever MLB game and I loved every second of it. NCAAF: UB/UCONN International Bowl, UB's first and only bowl game NCAAB: Mizzou/Clemson and Morgan St/WVU first round NCAA games last season
  5. Etem, a Ducks prospect, was born in raised here in SoCal. He even skates funny because he primarily played roller hockey until he was 13 or 14. I think his views of Buffalo or even Medicine Hat would be similar to mine (same generation, same basic upbringing) and I have no real problem with his statement. Obviously Buffalo residents dont like that being said, but who outside of Buffalo hasn't said that. And plenty of athletes have. I think the "hardcore booing" is definitely a little much. Be miffed at him or be creative with a sign or something, but yea he's only 18 and he's a SoCal kid in Buffalo in the dead of winter. Give him a break. He's wearing the red/white/blue and representing the USA, support him for what he's doing. Plus, its probably best that it's a "ghost town" to him so he's not out getting in trouble. I'd hope this wouldn't carry on in any more games. The booing died down a lot tonight. I only heard it during the starting roster introductions, and I was there. Plenty of Non-Buffalonians have said that but a player on the "hometown team" has never said that to my knowledge outside of Willis McGahee and he was booed out of Buffalo as well. Most Sabres and Bills have positive views of the city and do decide to stay here after retiring (Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Scotty Bowman, etc). He can think whatever he wants but don't go out on Twitter and say that. Also, what do you expect a 18 year old to do while in a foreign city? He can't go to bars unless he wants to go to a club, which Buffalo has plenty of. It obviously isn't as glamorous as Long Beach, but he is there to win a Gold for the United States of America, not to go out and party.
  6. I don't think it deserved a suspension but I can understand the IIHF's decision. Also, did anybody else hear the booing (by USA fans) of USA forward Emerson Etem because of his tweet "much needed day off, buffalo is a ghost town!! the worst city ever, it makes medicine hat look like paradise, never thought ide say that". What are your reactions to that. I think the hardcore booing, even after he scored a goal for the US, is understandable but he is only 18. I don't think they should boo in any other games.
  7. I'd like to point out how crazy Canadian hockey fans are. The arena seats 18,690, and I swear there were 18,500 Canadian fans at that game. I was an usher for that game and was awed by their enthusiasm for a round robin game in another country; albeit 2 miles from the border. It was the loudest I ever remember HSBC Arena being and I've been to probably 30-40 games there in the past 14 years. However, they were so much more ridiculously drunk than any other fans. One person puked in the aisle in my section, people were harassing each other over stupid crap, typical drunk stuff, but the other games were good natured. As for the games, I love Canada's style, hit everything that moves. They had at least 10 amazing hits. I didn't expect a big hitting game coming in but wow, i was amazed. Both the US and Canada started out slow but got the W, which is all that matters. I just want a rematch with Canada in the Gold Medal Game, I can't imagine the atmosphere there.
  8. Play/Moment/Story of the Year for 2010?

    Play: DeSean Jackson's punt return TD or the Jaguars hail mary Game: Eagles/Giants last week or Gold Medal Game of the Olympics Moment: Landon Donovan sending the USA to the group stages Story: Vick's comeback or the Saints winning the Super Bowl
  9. Favorite Player

    Albert Pujols by far
  10. Your Least Favorite Team

    New York Jets
  11. VIDEO: Metrodome collapse

    Carrier Dome. Western New York got much more snow over the last two weeks than Minneapolis. It's still up. The Carrier Dome also replaced the entire roof in 1999, and I believe has smaller panels, making it a bit stronger. If I remember right the night of the Metrodome collapse, they pulled all their workers who normally work to clear snow off of the roof due to winds, and the Metrodome has never replaced its entire roof. I'm not sure if it has smaller panels. I was watching the Syracuse news and they were talking to the head of the Carrier Dome and he said that they had the exact same roof as the Metrodome and they had extra panels they were shipping to Minnesota to help with the repair there. It could be just part of the whole thing, but he made it seem as they were the exact same thing. And Syracuse did receive around 2-3 feet of snow over the past few weeks but plenty of that has melted from some rain we also got last weekend. Syracuse has gotten a bunch more than that though and the dome has survived.
  12. Current Temperature Where You Are

    -5º F. With a -20º windchill. With a bit over 2 feet of snow on the ground. This is the coldest I have remembered it being in a long time. At least I am not at home in Buffalo where there are places that have gotten almost 5 feet of snow the past week.
  13. 2010 NFL Season

    This statistic I can't believe. The Buffalo Bills have not lost a game to the Bengals since before I was born (1990). The Bills have won 10 straight versus them. The last time the Bengals beat the Bills was January 8th, 1989; the AFC Championship game.
  14. What Floats your Boat?

    That's funny, because I feel like Cortland won three out of the four years I was at IC. And they've won both games i've been at Cortland, not good for either of us during our times there.
  15. What Floats your Boat?

    Cortaca, best weekend of the year, now if only Cortland could beat Ithaca for once. If you don't know what Cortaca is, it is a huge rivalry football game between SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College. It is a huge party weekend at both schools and there is excitement over both cities all weekend, i can't wait.
