(WECK 1230) — I’m about to conclude an insane week of preparation for football season, so rather than conduct three blog posts, how about you let me long-dash my way through one? Pretty please?
1) “The Bills Rap” is back. Some of you hated it on WGR and a lot of you loved it. The requests for its return were many, and thanks to the producing talents of my cousin Pumice T it now includes a special auto-tune edition and the best-sounding mp3 the song has ever had. Listen to it here, and pass it to your friends. It always makes my weekend to hear it in the lots at One Bills Drive: LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD HERE (and if you missed the “Spiller” song we did early in camp, listen here).
2) Females Putting the ‘F’ in football – Do you have a friend, wife, mother or daughter who can talk football with the best of your guy friends? Whether she’s a woman in uniform or just happens to be related to a male sports fan who brings his daughter to the slaughter, enter to join our Sunday pregame show’s brand new competition to find the brightest female fan in Western New York. She just may have what it takes to be WECK’s first ever “Grid-Iron Maiden.”
It always bothers me to hear rhetoric that women don’t understand the game. Is it true in some cases? Absolutely. One of my sisters never really cared to get into the game, but my mom, grandmother and aunts were all-in for the most part.
Email email@example.com with your name, age (must be 21), picture (we need proof you males aren’t sabotaging the show) and a brief paragraph on what makes you qualified to compete to be WECK’s Gridiron Maiden. Two will be chosen each week to join me (Nick Mendola) for a segment of our pregame show at Hucklebuckets Family Grill and Sports Bar in Amherst’s Northtown Plaza, on the airwaves at WECK 1230 AM and streaming at www.weck1230.com. We’ll get you some food — which is half-priced during the show — and if you win we’ll turn to you often for opinions and more. We’ll figure out a proper prize somewhere down the line. Each week, Scott, the owner of Hucklebuckets, will choose a winner.
Any addition questions, email away. The pregame show is brought to you by Hucklebuckets, Caputi Liquors, Consumer’s Beverages, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County and Center-Ice Sports Cards.
3) A good reporter’s inkling — Don’t be surprised to see the Bills line up against Miami with some quarterback-less offensive sets. I’m not even talking about a Wildcat formation with Trent Edwards lined up as a wide-out. I’m talking a shotgun-esque formation with Marshawn Lynch, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson three across the backfield and the snap heading in any of their respective directions. My inkling would also say Lynch or Jackson will be more apt to throw the ball, while Spiller could be simplified to running. You didn’t hear it from me…
