    Oh, the walk was yesterday?  Darn, I missed it. Oh well. maybe I'll donate next year. 

     

    Drum Roll Please!

     

    The total raised for the 2021 MS Walk was $ 906.50!

     

    It was a very successful year as always.

    We took no pictures just to piss off Jack. :nana:

     

    We will be doing another virtual walk in Connecticut in a few weeks to see "Babyrock" and family. We may post some pictures then!

     

    Thank you to my TBD sponsors:

    Be happy, healthy, and safe. Maybe I will see you at the Bills home opener at Hammers Lot!

    It's time for my annual request of my friends at Two Bills Drive to sponsor me in a fund raiser to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

    I do not post a lot anymore, but I have been lurking since day one of this web site. Hopefully we will meet for a Garbage Plate for the Home Opener again this year.

     

    Many of you know I was diagnosed with MS way back in 1994, but thanks to advances in treatment that get better each year, I can live a relatively normal life. There was a time when a diagnosis of MS meant getting measured for a wheelchair, but things have greatly advanced sine then

     

    Because of COVID-19 precautions, we will not be walking in large groups again this year. On May 15, 2021 we will be walking in a variety of ways to raise funds to help find the cure for Multiple Sclerosis. Since 2003 we have raised nearly $24,000 thanks to YOU! I would estimate that TBD has been responsible for close to 75% of the funds raised in the past.

    Any amount helps! 

    100% of your donation goes to the MS Society.

    God Bless and Thank you all!

     

    MS Walk will be starting soon. It's not too late too sponsor me if you want. Thank you to those who contributed. 

     

    TSW Rocks!

                     It has been a tough year.  I believe Rockpile has made his goal in all or most of the years he has participated in this. Lets keep this streak going.

    So take the funds for that one Bills or Sabre seat, one beer and one piece of pizza and throw it his way. 

     

    Thank You!

     

    We have a goal of $1500, and (with checks being processed) we are up to $827.

     

    The MS Walk is three days away. 

     

  5. I will be there with my daughter and two others. I am concerned about vaccination requirements. 

     

    Will our friend Eric be allowed to amend his policy for Hammer's Lot? It seems our Governor and Cuomo disagree on the criteria.

     

    Also, with talk of one section for vaccinated and one for non-vaccinated fans, what happens to my four seats? 😐

    I have a dilemma today. My son has a 315 hockey game. We won't be home until nearly six. Watch the game on my phone as i keep time in the box and listen on Sat radio on the way home or try to go off the grid and watch it all when I get home?

     

    Option 2 - family first.

     

    This is just my opinion, and it works for me.

     

    I have been saying "Wait until next year since 1967! :beer:

    Forget these stats, and name a team where you would rather the Bills play in their stadium.

     

    I will take the Chiefs in Buffalo instead of their house any day! Personal mojo opinion!  :thumbsup:

    Minnesota has a really cool stadium, with the glass roof. I don't like indoor football as much, but that one, with the end doors open, is almost like an outdoor venue

     

     

     

    We lost a SB in Minneapolis. :huh:

    If I'm not working on household projects, I'll likely be playing my guitars, as I've been a player for five decades.

    I generally don't watch TV, unless there is a Bills game being broadcast.

    What music do you play? I strum chords but cannot really call myself a guitarist! 🙄 I just like to play.

    Sal with the way back machine and similar weather coming to WNY. Check out the punt game. I’m pretty sure just putting the ball on the ground and farting in it’s general direction would’ve been more effective. 

     

    I was at that game in the lower end zone and the wind was blowing right at us! Weather went from rain to sleet to snow with brutal winds. It was still a fun game because I dressed warm and stayed dry. One of the punts went up in a nice arc and the wind just "slapped" it back to the punter!

    exactly!!!!   Embrace the suck, its us against everyone. It isnt fair, but we are still going to go out there and get the job done.  Preach that ***** all damn day Coach, this type of situation is where the coaches earn their money.  im confident our coach will have these guys more than ready to go with a plan that will be successful

     

    Isn't that the Bills fans unofficial motto? I have been waiting until next year since 1967. :huh:

     

    I do not wish the virus on anyone,  but I REALLY do not want any Bills getting the virus because of economics!

    It does add something, though I have found the games really weird.

     

    There is nothing more boring than watching a sporting contest in front of a small crowd, or empty arena! 

     

    Picture a game in Miami with the usual half empty stadium of "Dolphins fans" vs. a game in KC with the place packed and everyone going nuts for the Chiefs.


    If you are a neutral fan anyway, the crowd adds a lot of drama and atmosphere.

     

    As I have said elsewhere, we are lucky to have NFL football at all, and I really did NOT think we would.

     

    So we will see what it's all like.


    We get our first taste tonight.

     

     

     

    from Yahoo sports:

     

    "The wide availability of Thursday’s Chiefs home opener against the Houston Texans has been an eyebrow-raiser across the ticket market. Not only because the Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl win after the 2019 season and feature league centerpiece Patrick Mahomes, but also because Thursday’s prime-time game represents the kickoff to the 2020 NFL season and Kansas City was planning to limit the crowd to 16,000 fans."
