Tweet Of The Day: Ryan Nagelhout

Posted on December 10, 2012 by BSD Staff

As a (hopefully) neat little new feature at Buffalo Sports Daily, each day I’ll highlight one Tweet I’ve seen over the past 24 hours that for whatever reason caught my eye.

The inaugural winner is Ryan Nagelhout from The Goose’s Roost—who comically summed up how everyone feels about Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller at this point.

The Saturday Morning Hangover

Posted on January 15, 2011 by Patrick Moran

The Saturday Morning HangoverI’m scheduling this entry Friday afternoon to be posted the following morning because odds are I’ll have a hangover after this long week.

So sticking with the hangover theme, here’s a small list of things that are contributing to my head pounding this wintery Saturday morning.

♦ Cody McCormick has as many goals (six) for the Buffalo Sabres this season as Tim Connolly.  That’s completely inexcusable and I don’t care if two-thirds of the Hansen brothers were Connolly’s line mates.  Terry Pegula can’t come soon enough— this team is in dire need of a quality house cleaning.

A Guide To WNY Winter Fishing

Posted on January 13, 2011 by Jeff Abbott

Wilson HarborThe majority of WNY fisherman really only spend the warm months on the great waters in our area fishing. For most, it is because their boat is stored and sealed for the cold months, others only have one species of fish they pursue and that is only done during the summer months. I would like to invite all fishermen to broaden their fishing experience or start a new one by bundling up and heading to the ice covered waters for some continued fun following the holiday season.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation reports that the sale of fishing licenses totaled 21.6 million dollars this past season. It is a shame to me that most people only get half of their money’s worth out of the amount they paid for their licenses.

The average Joe probably purchases his license in the spring or summer when the weather warms or when taking the kids camping, or possibly when someone invites them on their boat for Labor Day Weekend, but there is the time from January to March and, quite possibly April, where the waters still have a bounty to spill under a frozen mask.

The Dream Lives On

Posted on January 12, 2011 by Rick Stanley

Terry Pegula Forbes PhotoThis is a story about two generations and two visions of Buffalo sports. It’s about a father and a son who ache for just one day of greatness for this once-bustling city on the lake.

They have the same dream but they feel they are powerless to make it a reality.

The history of major-league Buffalo sports is wrapped in frustration — there aren’t many Western New York natives who would dispute that assertion. We’ve seen it all: From Ronnie Harmon and the Drop to Wide Right to No Goal to the Music City Miracle.

As a longtime, now-jaded Buffalo sports booster, I am still clinging to hope that one day I will see either a National Football League or National Hockey League world-championship pennant flying over the steps of Buffalo City Hall.

Ozark to be honored by Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame

Posted on June 14, 2010 by Raymond Rolak

OzarkThe National Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame will celebrate the richness of Polish Culture and Sports at their June 24, induction in Troy, Michigan.  The NPASHF induction ceremony will honor former Philadelphia Phillies Manager, Danny Ozark.  The Buffalo native played in the Brooklyn Dodger’s system for many years.

As a Major League Manager, Ozark led the Phillies to National League-East titles in 76, 77 and 78.  He was also a longtime coach for the L. A. Dodgers.

Past Philadelphia Phillies slugger Greg Luzinski will present for the deceased Ozark.  Ozark passed in Vero Beach, Florida in 2009 and is survived by his wife Ginny and two children, Dwain and Darlene.  Luzinski was inducted into the NPASHF in 1989.

Nolan’s Sullen Act is Getting Tiresome

Posted on June 10, 2010 by Dave Davis

Ted NolanIn his first year he took a lousy hockey team and made it entertaining.  In his second year he made it a division champion.  But for someone so good at making others better than they really are, since getting the boot from Buffalo, Ted Nolan has failed to do the same for himself.

Once considered a rising star in the NHL coaching ranks and a beloved figure for his great work and fiery persona in his short time in Buffalo, Nolan has been responsible for much of his own career demise since he and John Muckler were both losers in a 1997 power struggle.

And as the 15-year anniversary of his hiring as head coach of the Sabres approaches, Nolan apparently hasn’t used up all of the cards in the racism deck just yet.

Travis Henry: The Worst Quarterback Ever

Posted on June 9, 2010 by BSD Staff Reports

Did You Know Logo(This is our new daily feature called “Did You Know”— providing a little nugget of Buffalo sports information you may… or may not have known)

For a three-year period of time, young Buffalo Bills running back Travis Henry was one of the most feared ball carriers in the National Football League.  After 729 yards in his 2001 rookie season, Henry would go on to run for 1,438 and 1,356 yards in his second and third seasons, respectively.

But did you know that for all of Henry’s positive numbers in the running game, he’ll go down as having the worst quarterback rating in franchise history.

A Tribute To My Dear, Fallen Friend

Posted on June 9, 2010 by Patrick Moran

Renee Greco PhotoLet’s begin with a disclaimer—This post has absolutely nothing to do with sports. If you’re looking to get your daily Buffalo sports fix on, this isn’t the column to do it and you may be better served clicking another link or coming back again tomorrow.   Having said that, I respectfully ask you to carry on reading.

They say writing is therapeutic and since I’ve allowed myself a forum to do so, I need to as for today, I’m once again brokenhearted.

Exactly one year ago on this day, my dear friend Renee Greco was cruelly murdered by two young men she cared for while working as a youth counselor at a Lockport group home for troubled teens.

Countless lives, including mine were forever changed.

Bob Chandler was pass catching machine?

Posted on June 8, 2010 by BSD Staff Reports

Did You Know Logo(Just to do a little something different, we’re going to start a regular feature called “The Daily Did You Know”— a nugget of information about a Buffalo sports team or player that you may not have known—or maybe you did.)

When people think of great pass catchers in Buffalo Bills history, Bob Chandler is not a name that typically jumps to mind.  But did you know that in a four-year span ranging from 1975-78, Chandler led the entire NFL with 220 receptions?

Chandler finished a nine-year Buffalo career with 295 receptions for 3,999 yards and 34 touchdowns—not bad for a former seventh-round draft choice.

Daily Did You Know: O.J. and Jim Kelly Linked

Posted on June 7, 2010 by BSD Staff Reports

Did You Know Logo(Just to do a little something different, we’re going to start a regular feature called “The Daily Did You Know”— a nugget of information about a Buffalo sports team or player that you may not have known—or maybe you did.)

Did you know that indirectly, the Bills trading O.J. Simpson to San Francisco in 1978 led to the team acquiring Jim Kelly five years later?

When the Bills traded Simpson they received four picks from the 49ers; a second and third round draft choice in 1978 and a first and fourth rounder the following year.  With that first round pick in 1979 the Bills drafted Tom Cousineau (first overall as well).

Though he never played a game with Buffalo, electing to sign with the CFL instead, Buffalo managed to trade his rights to the Cleveland Browns in 1982 for a first round (14th overall) pick in the ’83 draft.

Buffalo then used that pick on Jim Kelly.  A lot of people know the Cousineau pick turned out to be Kelly.   Not everyone however, realize  it was dealing Simpson to San Francisco that would set up the future Cleveland trade.

Come Out To Support FC Buffalo’s Soccer Debut Saturday

Posted on May 28, 2010 by Patrick Moran

FC Buffalo LogoOne of the things Western New York has lacked for quite some time is a soccer team to root for.  That changes when Memorial Day weekend rolls around.

The National Premier Soccer League now has a franchise in Buffalo.  FC Buffalo opens their inaugural season Saturday afternoon at Robert E. Rich All-High Stadium with a match against Erie.

Game time is 3:00pm.  Tickets are just $5 at the door and as a Memorial Day weekend special, all veterans and military personnel that show ID will get in for free.

Co-owner Nick Mendola, also an on-air personality at local radio station WECK, has long been infatuated with soccer. He cites the organization’s mission statement as the reason behind bringing the sport back to Buffalo.

Western New York WWE star suffers serious knee injury

Posted on May 17, 2010 by Patrick Moran

Beth Phoenix Buffalo NYBuffalo, NY native and WWE Diva Superstar Beth Phoenix has badly injured her knee.  The multi-time women’s champion tore her ACL and sprained her MCL.  The injury is expected to sideline her from being in a ring for several months and possible up to a full year.

Phoenix, whose real name is Elizabeth Kocanski Carolan is actually from Elmira, New York even though she is billed on television as from Buffalo.  The 29-year old has been wrestling professionally since 2001.

Phoenix injured the knee in a taped “Superstars’ match against Rosa Mendes two weeks ago.  She tried to work around the injury before learning how serious she was injured.  Ironically, her last match for the foreseeable future was in her hometown of Buffalo during a “Smackdown” TV taping at the HSBC Arena on May 11.

Buffalo fighter to be featured on ESPN Boxing

Posted on April 19, 2010 by BSD Staff Report

Guillermo Lopez ESPN In a press release by ESPN, it was announced that 21-year old Buffalo featherweight Guillermo Sanchez will fight against Dominic Salcido (17-2, 9 knockouts) in a televised edition of “Friday Night Fights” on May 14 at Buffalo Bill’s Star Arena in Primm, Nevada.

The eight-round fight will be the first on the ESPN telecast, which begins at 10p.m.

Sanchez is currently on a medical suspension following an accidental head butt suffered against Carlos Laudio on March 26 that left a cut near his left eye.  Since the referee determined the head butt was accidental the fight was called a draw because it was stopped before the end of the fifth round.

Sanchez, 21- years old (11-0-1) was born in Puerto Rico but moved to Buffalo around seven years ago. This will be his first fight near the Las Vegas area.

Salcido will be far and away the toughest opponent Sanchez has faced.

Luke Adam impresses in first pro game

Luke-AdamFor about two weeks after the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles were eliminated from the QMJHL playoffs in late March, Buffalo Sabres prospect Luke Adam was hangin’ loose away from the ice. Before he could get too comfortable though, the Sabres and Portland Pirates came calling. Adam now finds himself thrust into the 2010 Calder Cup Playoffs for his first taste of professional hockey.

“For sure (the two weeks off) gave me a good rest period,” said Adam after the Pirates’ 3-1 loss to the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday night in Game Two of the Atlantic Division Semifinals. “Once I got here I’ve been on the ice, doing steady conditioning and weight training, and (tonight) I felt good out there.”

“I was a little nervous going into the game, but the guys who have been here all season made it a lot easier on me. They’ve shown a lot of support the whole week helping me out.”

Maybe T.O. should ditch Twitter

Posted on April 16, 2010 by Patrick Moran

Terell Owens TwitterAfter trading Santonio Holmes this past week on the heels of getting fed up with multiple off field issues, the Pittsburgh Steelers very likely are looking to fill a hole at the wide receiver position.  Given that he’s currently unemployed, Terrell Owens seemed to be a potential match after the NFL draft next week if the Steelers fail to land an adequate player to replace Holmes.

That’s pretty much out the window now.

Rarely one to mince his feelings, Owens took to his twitter Friday morning to publicly question the Steelers organization, namely comparing Holmes to recently embattled quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

NFL player agents a roadblock for rookie wage scale?

Posted on April 13, 2010 by Jeff Nixon

Matthew StaffordOnce upon a time, paying rookies high salaries and bonuses was a necessary part of doing business in the NFL. That was back in the days when the NFL actually had to compete for football players.

When the AFL came into existence and started offering rookies higher salaries to play in their League, they were able to steal some marquee players away from the NFL. As the AFL grew in strength and started putting a competitive product on the field, the NFL Owners were forced to do one of two things: Pay higher salaries, or do what many big corporations in America do; buy out your competitor and merge the companies. We know how that story ended.

The USFL and the World Football League, in their brief tenures, were able to attract some rookies – with NFL talent – and pay them enough money to play for their league, but by that time it was too late, the NFL had already grown too powerful – due in large part to the anti-trust exemption they received from Congress. We all know how the USFL and WFL ended.
