Here is a video of a parachutist’s full descent as the game ball is delivered to Ralph Wilson Stadium prior to the Bills vs. Dolphins game this past Sunday.

Technology brings the AWESOME.

Bill Murray is Just Plain Cool

I have no idea why Bill Murray has taken up crashing parties and other events, but it is just plain cool.

The video is taken in Charleston, SC where Murray has a home and was featured in a TIME piece. He gets down to “Turn Down For What” at a party.

It makes me want to invite him to a party here in Buffalo.

VIDEO: I live in Buffalo

44400_nickel_lg

There are people, even locally, who passionately hate on Buffalo. They love to see failure and want things to fail. You know the crowd. You see them troll social media and local media comment sections with gusto to poop on Buffalo’s parade.

Then there are the locals whose crazy love for Buffalo is crazy. You know this crowd too. They defend Buffalo to the bitter end and have meltdowns when anything negative is said or written about the city.

Then there are the people in the middle. The people who love Buffalo, but understand its challenges and problems. The people who don’t put on rose colored glasses, but expect better. These are the people who make Buffalo great.

The video captures that feeling of us in the middle.

PS: Brad Riter needs a regular radio gig in this town. That’s his voice on the video. You can hear him over at Trending Buffalo—> www.trendingbuffalo.com/author/brad-riter/

Last week Wednesday I posted the above photo on Twitter of the Buffalo General Mills plant.

Here’s the tweet:

This morning the Cheerios Twitter account replied with the offer of a free Cheerios t-shirt. Bonus.

Who says this whole social media thing doesn’t pay?!?!
