Happy First Day Of Sabres Camp

September 14, 2017By Patrick Moran

Happy first day of Buffalo Sabres training camp, everyone.  What’s not to love about Jack Eichel?  As evidenced by his quote pictured above, Eichel’s a leader who just gets it. We’ll have plenty to discuss with the Sabres over the coming days and weeks as the team gets ready for the 2017-18 season—its first with head … Read More

Buffalo Bills Power Rankings – Week Two

September 13, 2017By Patrick Moran

Each Wednesday during the NFL season I’m compiling power rankings of the best Buffalo Bills players for 2017.  The rankings are cumulative, which considering Sunday was their opener means nothing for now. Here’s my rankings after Week one, a 21-12 victory over the New York Jets. 1.  Lesean McCoy: Simply put, there’s no doubt Shady … Read More

(Belated) Random Thoughts On The Buffalo Bills Opener

September 12, 2017By Patrick Moran

Sorry I’m late to the party with my takes on the Buffalo Bills opener. I live in Bradenton, Florida and have been dealing with Hurricane Irma issues over the past several days.  I got to watch the game live on Sunday, most of it anyway and again via All-22 this morning, which considering I have … Read More

Bills Name Five Captains. Also, Having Five “Captains” Is Dumb

September 6, 2017By Patrick Moran

Last season, former Buffalo Bills head coach/fancy pants Rex Ryan rotated his team captains weekly because I’m assuming he thought it would motivate different guys and perhaps get into opponents’ heads (it didn’t). This year current head coach Sean McDermott isn’t playing any games.  He named his five captains today—and it’s worth noting that having … Read More

Hot Taekery: Bills Fans Tossing Taylor Under Bus

September 5, 2017By Patrick Moran

I like Tyrod Taylor, I really do. I don’t particularly think he’s the quarterback that can lead the Buffalo Bills out of their 17-year (who we kidding—let’s go ahead and call it 18 now) playoff drought, but I like him nonetheless. I won’t recite his statistics and record as the Buffalo starter because it really … Read More

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#2) Toto – Africa

August 17, 2017By Patrick Moran

“There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.”Also, there’s also nothing that 98 other songs on this countdown could ever do to prevent Toto’s Africa from being my second-favorite song of the 1980s. Africa is the most delightfully catchy and polished tune of the decade I can think of, and trust me … Read More

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#3) Prince – When Doves Cry

August 16, 2017By Patrick Moran

What takes a good or even great song and transcends it into an all-time favorite usually entails encompassing a personal connection—a vivid memory forever linked in your mind.  I was born in 1971 and grew up in a home where my Motown/Oldies-loving father pretty much detested any music from the 80s. That wasn’t limited to … Read More

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#4) Lionel Richie – Hello

August 15, 2017By Patrick Moran

As a youth Lionel Richie was tremendously timid. A blurb from Songfacts.com explains a young Richie.  “When he was young, Richie watched beautiful women walk past but was too shy to talk to them. He thought to himself, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for.” Man, I don’t know about all that. Richie may have … Read More
