Post Game Journal: Saints Trounce Bills

  • Posted on September 27, 2009 at 8:33 pm

In week one we went with a live blog. Last week we decided to roll with a post-game live chat. Both were fun (for us) and pretty successful, but in an effort to keep changing things up-this week we decided to go with a running game journal.

I wish I hadn’t. There went three hours of my life I’ll never get back. The Buffalo Bills looked awful and anemic, especially offensively in their 27-7 lay-down to the Saints.

Am I surprised the Bills came out on the losing end ? Not at all. The Saints are a very good football team. I didn’t expect the Bills to win.

Sabres To Close Out Preseason… Spots Up For Grabs

  • Posted on September 27, 2009 at 12:50 pm
The Buffalo Sabres close out the preseason tonight when they travel to Air Canada Centre to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7pm. This is the second meeting with the Leafs this preseason. The Sabres won, 3-2 on September 23 at the HSBC Arena.While the game may be meaningless in the standings, don’t tell that to players on the bubble of making the team. For a handful of players, tonight is their last opportunity to showcase why they belong on the opening night roster.

The Sabres currently have 27 players on the roster (16 forwards, 9 defensemen and two goaltenders). That means four players on the roster today won’t be when the regular season opens October 3 against Montreal. In all likelihood two forwards and two defensemen will be sent to Portland or released in the coming days.

The Unemployed Chef: Fried Pork Chops & Red Potato Mash

  • Posted on September 27, 2009 at 11:25 am

While you were smashing your Buffalo grilled wings last Sunday, I was watching the Bills smash the Bucs.

I’ll be watching the Bills take on the Saints this Sunday over some fried pork chops, mashed red potatoes, and ice cold beer. Hopefully we can zero in on Brees, and pray that Bush never touches the ball.. It’s gonna be an intense game.

I don’t want you to waste your time slaving over the stove or grill. And you won’t. The chops cook pretty quickly, and the potatoes can be done days in advance, so you don’t have to spend your tailgating time being a Kitchen Bitch.
