Ladies, gents and advanced toddlers, The in-season for sports writers is back and I’ll be here a little bit but I want to let you know where to find me. I’ll be covering the Bills and Sabres for the Associated Press this season under my boss John Wawrow (mostly game coverage) as well as doing… Continue Reading

If you’re going to compare James to Jordan…

Good (??) news… I haven’t died. Just laying low for a good period of time. Will see you soon quite regularly but I need to get my current events writing in shape. So let’s start with a topic I don’t particularly enjoy: defending LeBron James. In a lot of ways, opinion writing becoming a daily… Continue Reading

Glorious & Laborious Journey Home

Thanks in advance for indulging me. This is the map of the route my family will be taking home to Buffalo from Louisiana after four months of hanging out with LSU sports, Zapata’s Mexican Restaurant and a bunch of trips to New Orleans. We want to make sure we don’t miss anything cool along the… Continue Reading

Earning Scholarships at LSU with (maybe) Zach Mettenberger

This evening was a beautiful one in Baton Rouge and on the way home from dinner my wife decided she wanted to pick up some supplies for her final week of teaching down South.

NFL Draft: AAAAAAH! Real Drafters?!?

So the NFL Draft is upon us and we’re officially reading the most overthought draft posts of the year, whether they be fake drafts or dudes who’ve watched a lot of Youtube clips. Yet there are some extremely pertinent questions about not just the Buffalo Bills but the league in general heading into Thursday night’s… Continue Reading

Ott in the Slot

Ott in the Slot

Forget for a moment your position on fan booing. Frankly, the amount of talk on the subject recently makes me want to scissor kick a snowplow, so it’s good that we do a different dance when it comes to whether customers should be allowed to audibly hate a product. I’m a huge fan of Steve… Continue Reading

Sabres Game in a Stanza: Buffalo 3, Montreal 2 (OT)
