I apologize to you all

It's because Buffalo never won.  We'd be a much better place if there was something to crow about.  It's like dealing with a guy that never got laid.  What are we going on?  Like 50+ year old virgins?  Yeah, we get screwed... But not a way to be proud about.  LoL...

 

The heroic interlopers will never understand.  Not that I am against them, they should be very much welcome here.  Yet, the sanctimonious vibe is a bit grating.

 

I never got the sanctimonious part. Maybe it’s just me? I’m not overly sensitive about it. The people up there were great, IMO.

Do NOT trust this! I have long suspected that he is a Nigerian Prince! This only goes to support my suspicions!

So are you guys Yankee fans out there or Met fans? Who's everyone's baseball team. 

I like your posts.  Thanks for coming.  Now a short lesson in New York State geography:

 

Why do you assume people from Buffalo would be Yankees or Mets fans?  We are closer to Toronto, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit than New York City.  In fact, in many cases, we despise New York City.  New York is a big, beautiful state.    We are far more that the "Big Apple".

Yeah... I was more talking about fans of other teams when they come here a sharing their "peace love and happiness."

Because it's New York State. NYC teams, especially Yankees are winners.

 

In my eyes, the rise of Toronto killed Buffalo.  It's in a foreign country too.

 

Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit... Different states.

Personally I think New York City is a more foreign land than Toronto.

I'm partial to the late 80's Brew Crew. Moliter, Yount, Sheffield, and of course Rob Deer. Deer would have been the world's greatest softball player.

 

92/93 Paul Molitor was a machine 

 

SF giants for me Bonds and peak Tim Lincecum was the best.

Huh?

 

The two biggest cities on Lakes were Buffalo and Chicago until 1960.  The rise of Toronto was in direct correlation to the demise of Buffalo.  And... You need a passport the last 15+ years to get there.

 

Toronto only 90 miles away... But totally foreign.

Interesting take, I’ve never heard Toronto blamed for the decline of Buffalo, and honestly I believe its extremely low on the list of reasons.

Go Mets.  Rooting for the Yankees is a cheap way for Bills/Sabres fans to pretend they have a winning team.  

I always felt that way too. Is it evil that I’m enjoying their poor start? I thinks mainly due to their fans being insufferable pricks. Also, reading angry Yankees twitter after each loss is kind of funny, “fire Boone, Fire Cashman, & DFA Greg Bird.” Is the common trend I see on there. 

 

Anyways LGM, taking 3 out of 4 from the Bravos would be awesome.

I notice the people who are critical of other posters are often people with low post counts.  The people who have been around awhile are generally more open minded and willing to get off topic just for fun.

 

Perhaps you should try Off The Wall. Not too many mean spirited posts over there. 

 

And please don’t let the occasional insensitive post get you down, and feel free to post as often as you want.

 

disclaimer... I have a few friends and coworkers who are Packers fans, so a little inside scoop on Packers gossip is fine with me.

Some of the bbmb transplants seem to have an issue with you for some reason.   

 

I'm a "transplant" and I remember Ice from the BBMB too (he posted as GBFan2000 or something like that.) I had no problem with him there and I have no problem with him here.

If I irritated  or annoy any of you guys or caused bad feelings. I'll try not to hang around as much. Once again I apologize and hope you guys have a good season and get to the playoffs.

Don’t let the haters and losers, of which there are many, bring you down bud!

 

Post as often as you like. If someone gets bothered and posts mean stuff, just block them and keep on going with your day.

Will somebody explain to @Ice bowl 67 the meaning of being called an idiot by me?

 

Ice, when DC Tom calls you an idiot, it's the equivalent of Weird Al Yankovic spoofing one of your songs. It means you've made it in the world - you've hit the big time. 🙂

They mostly visit OTW.  I think it was her forray onto TSW that caused great angst among the diehards

I will take you over the jet fan idiots that periodically come here any day!

 

Frankly.....the packers and their fans feel like a brother from another mother

They need to realize that IceBowl has been around longer than they have.

Ice....we have a great game tonight on ESPN (deGrom is throwing). Here in B-low..it hurts me too say the Yankees are top dog but the Mets have a solid base here as well.I would say it's 60% Yankees,40% Mets.However, we do have some Blue Jays fans mixed in because of the triple A connection and close location.And,just maybe,you'll find a few fanatics of the Indians.

P.S.-Your Brewers are no joke,I really think they could represent the NL in the WS.I

Peace..and don't take message boards so seriously.

Please don't use the report button like some of the adult girls like to do...how pathetic that would be.

Whiskey Golf Alpha Foxtrot.  

 

@Ice bowl 67 WhoTom put it succinctly.  Being called an idiot is the way DC Tom accepts you...except those posters who are actually idiots, but that isn't what was meant here.  And the Whiskey Golf Alpha Foxtrot is, well, just let the negative posts roll off; don't sweat it.  Aaron Rodgers is still a diva.
