  1. Sermons are easy. Comedy is hard. I don't think I could listen to that guy for 5 minutes.
  2. I'm right there with ya, brother. Can I get an Amen?
  3. Seriously close? Where did you get that idea? Certainly not from the article you linked
  4. Very possibly. But, Mayer Brothers Apple Juice claims to be from 100% New York State apples. No clue about the cider: https://mayerbrothers.com/what-we-offer/branded-products/fresh-pressed-apple-juice/
  5. And last year's draft double dip seems to be working out nicely as well. Dontcha think? What is it that you are saying? Huh? I'm thinking nobody predicted the D line would have transformed THIS MUCH over one offseason, with most of the same players. I wasn't one who said 2 rookies couldn't work, but you should be able to understand the thinking. No? Going forward, I'm pretty sure having the two rooks as starters isn't the ideal plan going forward. But it's nice to see the system, and the players, can hold up if/when necessary. BTW, how about the play of Dane Jackson so far this year? Fortunately the D line, the linebackers and the safety tandem are really firing on all cylinders.
  6. Completely agree. I was very impressed. Bigger tests are ahead, but the confidence they are getting can only help, IMO
  7. Or perhaps the sugar. Well known for causing hangovers. Not added sugar, just the natural sugar. Drink enough hard cider to get really drunk, and you've consumed a lot of sugar. Then again, as you weren't real drinkers, it might just be the booze. 😂 I bartended at a place that fresh squeezed oranges/grapefruits/lemons/limes/etc. One thing that I noticed is that drinking too many fresh squeezed juice cocktails (which I love and are the best) gets a lot of people sick. Stomach issues, headaches, etc. I took to warning people after they had a few, to be careful of the side effects.
  8. Fantastic. I feel almost like I was there. Thank you.
  9. I'm fine with most anyone's PERSONAL religious beliefs. However when they start to talk about it (evangelize), it turns me off completely. OTOH, I have little issue with people spreading the basic tenets of most every major religion: Peace. Love. Acceptance. Charity. Stuff like that. It's in the details of organized religion where things go off the rails, IMO. And shouldn't this thread be moved? Or closed?
  10. Seriously. I couldn't load most of the games all Sunday afternoon. Horrible. I didn't have this issue last year.
  11. That's the life, Simon! Thanks for sharing.
  12. I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm really at a loss for words now. So incredibly sad. You are a rock, Tre.
  13. They were great. And the 2-for-1 coupons were plentiful. Reallylimed Rooties. Another great long lost wing joint was the Tally Ho in Niagara Falls (no relation to the strip club of the same name).
  14. I'd consider the Glenn Park Tavern on Main St in Williamsville. https://glenparktavern.com/ Though not a sports bar. So perhaps not your best option. They will have the game, however
  15. While not what I call a "concert", I wandered into Wally's, right by the Berklee College of Music in Boston and saw a great set fronted by Francisco Mela: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_Mela No cover. Great stuff.
  16. I like Duffs way more than BarBill. But then again, I like traditional Buffalo wings (not garlic parm, honey mustard, etc) and I like them CRAZY HOT, while still having the traditional flavor profile. BarBills are fine, but not Duffs level, IMO.
  17. I was in WNY on Thursday and needed a place for a group of people to watch the game. Because of its location and size, we choose a place called Tully's on NF Blvd. For viewing and drinking purposes, it was just fine. It wasn't overcrowded and the service was great. However, they have the absolute worst wings I've ever tasted in WNY, and perhaps anywhere. A complete disgrace!
  18. The Frank's brand has passed through some parent companies. At one point it was owned by Durkee. My recollection is at one time they may have just labeled it Durkee, but eventually changed it to Durkee's "Frank's" Red Hot Sauce. I think it has remained the same recipe. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank's_RedHot
  19. Why would any Bills fan give one rats behind what Ramsey thinks?
  20. The Bills bar has been Riptides, which is actually in Ormond Beach, just north of Daytona. I stopped in for lunch a week or two ago and asked if it was still the Bills fans gathering spot. The bartender said she thought so, but she was new. You may want to check before going: https://www.riptidesrawbar.com/menu The year DTV first announced the Sunday Ticket, my friends The Senator, Charlie and I convinced the former owners of the North Star to plunk down the cash for DTV and the Ticket, and open by 10 am (they used to open at noon on Sunday). They only took about a minute to agree, but they demanded I bartend every Sunday during football season. I bartended the first season, then moved to LA. The Senator took the helm for a year, as did Charlie. Nearly 30 years and at least two ownership changes later, it's still going strong!
  21. Me too. I know the big parks have a lot of regulations and safety precautions and probably follow the rules. But I'm very suspicious of small fairs and carnivals. Have you gotten a look at the people tending the rides? Do they look like the types that check all the bolts (for example) every day? I wouldn't be surprised if they loosened them half a turn every day, just to see what happens. Probably be the most exciting day they have all summer, should their ferris wheel crash mid-ride. Plus they'd probably get the rest of the day off.
  22. Outstanding. Congrats!! I can't say I care for the host of that show, though.
