[Football Friday] Stranger Things Have Happened…

The big news this Football Friday is that the Buffalo Bills game in Orchard Park this Sunday versus the Cincinnati Bengals… will be on TV! There were over 7,000 tickets left at the start of this week, and with the current state of panic and fear—and the ever-present dread, hopelessness, […]


[Football Friday] Wait… What Day Is It? 1

Today is actually Thursday, but since the Buffalo Bills play their weekend game tonight, my Football Friday post—a preview of the next game—will publish on a Thursday! It’s very confusing… Hopefully the BILLS will not be as confused! Though, as I heard pointed out this week, the Thursday Night Games […]


[Football Friday] Mounting Injuries, Mounting Losses? 1

NFL football is rough. (That’s probably obvious.) And somehow, it’s always rougher to the Buffalo Bills! I remember just a few years ago when there were seventeen (or more?) players on the season-ending Injured Reserve (IR) list! That’s a third of an NFL roster! Yikes! This year is starting off […]


[Football Friday] On The Road

It’s Friday, and that means another weekend of football is here! A week ago, Alex and I attended a high school football game here in our town. First time ever, actually! It was fun… except for the constant rain, on a cold night, and the college-ready, MJD-bodied running back on […]


Winning Is All That Matters! 2

A Visit to the 2013 Buffalo Bills Training Camp

For a decade now, in what is certainly an annual tradition for the Campbell family, we welcome each new Buffalo Bills season by attending the first (and several more) training camp practices. The practices are held at St. John Fisher College (our old stomping grounds … Ian was practically born […]


All Quiet on the Western (NY) Front 1

The ice has been silent for a couple months now. The offseason football personnel moves have been made, and practices have come and gone. The end of June brings near complete silence in the two worlds of professional sports in Buffalo, NY. In the 24/7/365 sports world that America seems […]


Are Buffalo Sports Eternally Doomed?

The Buffalo Sabres got their first win in five tries last night. It came by way of a(nother) great performance by goalie Ryan Miller. They have seven wins in this lockout-shortened season. Strangely, they are currently the worst team in the Eastern Conference, and yet they are only four points […]
