  1. Don't know if this a big whoop or not but ... https://www.google.com/search?gs_ssp=eJzj4tLP1TfIMM5JTzY1YPTiy0otLs5MTlQoSE0vzUkEAHqvCR8&q=jessica+pegula&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS838US838&oq=jessica&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j46i131i433l3j46i433l2j0i131i433j46i131i433l2.3238j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 My boss mentioned this - I told him most Sabres fans would rather the Sabres make it to the SC playoffs. But, good for her.
  2. The first time your child (or grandchild) looks at you and smiles ...
  3. I'd rather this team improve it's MENTAL toughness. How many times did we see boneheaded plays at every position last year. Not knowing what your responsibility is on the ice, not communicating, basically skating out there totally clueless. Playing like world beaters one period and then playing like total crap the next. To me this has very little to do with physical toughness. These guys are professional hockey players. We complain about how bad a guy plays when he's in Buffalo but then we see him traded and he "improves" overnight? Obviously if he can do that with another team he's got it in him to do it here but for whatever reason we can't get that out of him. If Ralphie can get these guys to play with their head in the game, stick to the game plan and do what's necessary on every shift I think you'll see a much better team just due to them playing the game properly. And the improvements made to the team will only add to that. And that ultimately should cause the team to be perceived as "tougher" i.e. tougher to play against, tougher to keep up with, tougher to beat.
  4. I don't post much but this one was pretty funny so what the heck ... A few years ago I went with some friends to a Bills game. Can't remember who they played (GB maybe?) as I'm not a big Bills fan but anyways we were in the heated seats at the one end of the stadium. Behind us is a group of guys/gals all in their 20's. Everyone having a good time, no problems at all. As I'm sitting watching the game all of a sudden I have a young female sitting on my head. She had lost her balance and literally sat on top of my head. She then proceeded to slide further until she ended in my lap on her back, legs spread, knees over my shoulders and her crotch basically staring me in the face! She's all embarrassed but laughing, I'm laughing, her friends are laughing, my buddies are laughing. All I could picture was the scene in Animal House where the girl flies into the kid's room and lands on her bed and he looks up and says "Thank you God!!" The funniest thing was getting her lifted up and off of me without shoving her crotch into my face any more. If I smoked I'd have had a cigarette afterwards.
  5. Perhaps the issue was due to their computer point-of-sale system. Maybe they installed new software, upgraded or were having server issues. If 1 or 2 concession stands were backed up that could be a personnel issue but if numerous stands were slow it could be a system-wide thing. Might also answer why in-seat ordering was taking forever also. As to the quality, I can't speak to that. If I go to the arena I never buy anything other than MAYBE a coffee. I won't pay the ridiculous prices. I'll stop on the way home to calm my nerves after dealing with the traffic exiting the area AND the crazies on 190 and 90 - oops THE 190.
  6. Interesting i guess i thought msg would include the sabres stuff. I think they offer a free trial so its something that could be tested before you commit. If they now have the local Roc stations i may have to try them out once hockey starts.
  7. I've been considering DirecTV Now which is their streaming version of DirecTV. Not as many channels but much cheaper. According to their site they offer MSG as part of their package. They also have a cloud-based DVR if that's of interest. The last time I checked they didn't have local channels (I live in the Roc area too) but perhaps this would be an option and perhaps you could get rid of one of your other services. They're service can be picked up via Roku as far as I know.
  8. I don't use Roku with the Spectrum app all that much (I was looking into cutting the cord with Spectrum too so I bought a Roku but then got lazy and haven't pursued further) but what worked for me is to set the channels you want to access quicker as favorites and then you can simply go into the favorites list in the app and scroll to the channel you want. I think those other buttons may be used if you try to play games
  9. Excellent comment. I don't post very much here but this is what I was thinking about while watching last night. Sure Jack could be slacking now that he's got his $$$, maybe he's got a minor injury no one is talking about or perhaps a touch of the flu. He definitely didn't look like his normal self. but I was thinking that perhaps Housley (and maybe even JBott) has told him to tone it back. Jack certainly doesn't need to be 'evaluated' like others on the team and possibly the coaches don't want him out there taking over games - at least not now. It could also be the reason they ended up signing him rather than letting him go through the season trying to "prove his worth" which would've caused Jack to be much more selfish a player to pad his stats - perhaps at the expense of the team.
  10. 3 years ago I switched from Nationwide after many years with them. I checked many insurance companies including Geico but ended up going with Liberty Mutual. They're rates were competitive to Geico and I've been very happy with them. From what I can remember Geico was cheaper for a simple, basic coverage policy but at the time I had 3 cars with one being driven by my daughter going to college and as I added more and more coverage options onto the policy eventually I was able to do better with Liberty Mutual. Just a thought.
  11. Does this make the sky green? (this from a poster who doesn't post here much)
  12. One other comment on needing a license ... If your nephew is 9yo he doesn't need a license. BUT, if YOU assist him in ANY WAY in fishing then YOU need a license. Helping him could be attaching a lure or bait, helping him cast, removing the fish from the hook, etc. It can be touchy. And usually the DEC officers don't just come up to you. They watch for a period of time so when they do approach you they already know if you were helping.
  13. (younger) - walking everywhere (older) - riding my bike everywhere tv channels that shut down at midnight with the national anthem and started back up in the morning with the national anthem. You want to play a sport? Find some buddies, choose teams and play. None of these organized leagues (town, travel, etc). You want to play hockey? Wait 'till winter and the pond freezes over (or play in the street with chunks of snow marking the goals) As others have said, landing on the moon, party phone lines and "be home when the street lights go on" rotary phones No 911 - 232-2121 and 225-2525 (local fire and police) What was the word that made up the 1st couple digits of YOUR phone number. Mine was 'Northfield' - NO3-2517 JFK, RFK, MLK :( Having a cop visit the house to talk to me for some reason or another and getting slapped upside the head by mom or dad even before they heard what happened. A cop wants to talk to me about something - I MUST'VE been doing something wrong. Also, substitute 'teacher' for cop. Growing up on the shores of L. Ontario - want to go swimming? Go behind so-n-so's house and jump in. No pools. No need for parents. Just do it. board games returnable bottles - I know we have them now but back in the 60's how many kids would look for them to get the .02 or .03 back so they could load their pockets up with candy and gum? Yellow raincoats and galoshes
