In honor of tonight’s historic event, check out some of Jeter’s career highlights on this montage I found on Youtube, originally posted by Colin Fitzgerald.
It’s entirely possible Hall & Oates may be my favorite pop group of the 80s era, although Huey Lewis & The News may have something to say about that. A significant part of the pop music fabric, Hall and Oates’ music was many things to me growing up, and the simple word “fun” resides at … Read More
Good morning and happy Friday, WWE Universe. Let’s watch six-man tag team action as the Bushwackers and Tugboat take on The Nasty Boys with Earthquake in 1991. In this match the dastardly Tugboat turned heel on his partners. He’d go on to build a formidable team with Earthquake, managed by Jimmy Hart.
One of the worst kept secrets in recent Buffalo sports memory became official Thursday as the Buffalo Sabres announced the appointment of Jason Botterill as the team’s general manager. A press conference is scheduled for 4pm today. The announcement had to wait until the conclusion of the Pittsburgh Penguins/Washington Capitals playoff series. He takes over … Read More

It’s odd to see Heenan, one of the greatest managers of all-time bin the corner of Lombardi, the ultimate jobber. As an aside, does anyone remember Ronnie Garvin as … Read More

He’ll be introduced by the team at a news conference Friday morning. Beane, 40, had spent the past 19 years with the Carolina Panthers, including the past six with new … Read More
I love me a good power ballad, and “The Search Is Over” was easily one of my favs of the 80s era. More on the song in a minute, but first let’s talk about Survivor. People rarely mention them discussing great rock and roll groups of the 80s, and that’s a shame. Survivor was a … Read More
Good morning and happy Wednesday WWE Universe. Let’s watch Chris Jericho make his WWF debut on August 9, 1999 when he interrupted the Rock. It’s hard to believe Jericho has been performing at such an incredibly high level at WWE for (on and off) nearly 18 years. Far and away he became WWE’s most significant … Read More
