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/

When Tweeting Pays Off

(click on image for full view)

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?!?!

Hidden Backwards Masking Message in Bon Jovi Song Reveals his Intentions for Bills

1-Fullscreen capture 8132014 120631 AM

In 1986, Jon Bon Jovi was already contemplating moving the Buffalo Bills. The song “Livin’ on a Prayer” has a backwards masking sequence near the end where Bon Jovi reveals his intention to move the Bills. I have isolated the audio below. The reverse clips reveals the truth.

Section of “Livin’ on a Prayer” played normal.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Same section of “Livin’ on a Prayer” played in reverse.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

You can clearly hear him say he is going to move the Bills.

If evidence was lacking on what Jon Bon Jovi wants to do, it’s now clear to me that Jon Bon Jovi had his sights on ripping a whole through the heart of the Buffalo Bills faithful for almost thirty years. He is the pure definition of evil.

Sam Tageson and What the San Jose Sharks did to Rock His World

Sam Tageson

I saw the below video this morning. If it doesn’t bring a tear or two, there is something wrong with you.

What the San Jose Sharks and the Make-A-Wish Foundation did here was simply beautiful. The Sharks signed 17-year-old Sam Tageson to a one day contract. He participated in pregame warm-ups, he got his own jersey, he skated through the famous shark head at San Jose’s SAP Center as the team took to the ice for their game and he stood with the team on the ice for the national anthem.

The San Jose Mercury News has some great photos of it all, click here to view—>
