For no particular rhyme or reason other than being fun for me to do and hopefully you to read, I’ve decided to occasionally recap old WWE Monday Night Raw shows (Smackdown will be a future project). At least for me, it’s cool to recreate many Monday nights I evidently didn’t recall as easily as I … Read More
Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” is perhaps the most played song on the radio I can remember. I swear, in 1984-85 I’m not sure I ever heard 45 minutes of radio without this coming on. That’s not a complaint. It was popular—as in Tina Turner is dominating the Grammy’s popular. This … Read More
There’s a million things about the 80s that elicit fond memories. At the forefront is the MTV era, and not just because of videos. Thanks to the music video generation, incorporating present-day popular music into movies became a regular thing. Among many, two movies in particular stand out to me…flicks I probably enjoyed more for … Read More
It’s safe to say Buffalo Sabres fans don’t reminiscence on Ville Leino’s time with team tenderly. It’s indisputable that one of the team’s all-time free agent busts considers the feeling mutual. On his Instagram today Leino published for sale a hooded sweatshirt called “Jail” that also contains the words greed, jail and idiot. Apparently Leino … Read More
Someday when I reflect on this countdown and deliberate which selections I want to kick myself over due to gross misplacement, this could very well lead the pack. There’s no way “Meet Me Halfway” by Sir Kenny Loggins should only be 67th. These are the kinds of decisions that get business executives fired. Sure the … Read More
If you polled a bunch of fans and asked for their favorite Bobby Brown song I’m confident “My Prerogative” or “Every Little Step I take” would top most lists. While I appreciate both tunes and particularly the latter, my choice would be neither. “Don’t Be Cruel” may not have been Browns’s biggest hit off his … Read More
Happy Derek Jeter Day, ya’ll. The New York Yankees retire Jeter’s No. 2 tonight before the Yanks take on Houston at the Stadium. The festivities will be televised on ESPN. 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
