Bills 2014 schedule: Path to perfection - OPINION

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

Maybe the best attribute of Buffalo.com over the last three years is our refusal to take ourselves seriously. We admit to not being as bright or connected as the News’ sports department, so we’ve taken an entirely different slant on sports coverage. (Get ready for a few humble-brags).

In an age of Twitter quarrels, brutal online comment sections and endless hours of sports-radio…

Immediate reactions: Islanders 4, Sabres 3 (F/SO)

blog by Ryan Nagelhout  •   •  

Sunday night’s season finale featured no alarms and no surprises for the Buffalo Sabres.

Buffalo lost, 4-3, to a slightly better hockey team in the New York Islanders at First Niagara Center in Buffalo. Of course, it took a shootout where they couldn’t manage to put the puck in the net to lose.

It was no surprise that the Sabres set an NHL record for the worst offense in league…

Buffalo Bandit John Tavares scores his 800th career goal.

The Buffalo Bandits came out firing in their National Lacrosse League battle with the Roughnecks from Calgary, however, in the end, it was Calgary that left town with the “W” and disappointed the 16,000 raucous Bandit fans in the First Niagara Center.

It seemed the Bandits stopped playing defense in the fourth quarter and gave up a three-goal lead to fall 16-13.

John Tavares,…

Immediate reactions: Blues 2, Sabres 1

blog by Ryan Nagelhout  •   •  

The St. Louis Blues didn’t need Ryan Miller to beat the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night. They didn’t need a whole lot, really.

The current state of the Buffalo Sabres is… trying. They had nine players scratched and lost a 10th to injury two minutes into the game.

They signed two draft picks earlier this week and one of them played his first NHL game on Thursday night.

Russ Brandon, at the Tailgate Vigil for Ralph Wilson; “. . . How can we honor him? One word. Win!”

The nine inches of Saturday night’s snow was cleared away, the temperature was warming and the sun broke through an overcast sky as more than 1000 of the Bills fans gathered on a California Road parking lot in Orchard Park to remember Ralph C. Wilson Jr. in a way befitting the truest of Bills fans; they had a tailgate party.

There was plenty of respectful revelry as the fans…

Immediate Reactions: Lightning 4, Sabres 3 (OT)

blog by Ryan Nagelhout  •   •  

Dominik Hasek was given a sword in front of 19,070 people on Saturday at First Niagara Center in Buffalo.

There were lots of cheers, a bunch of highlights and a few speeches. Then an announcer handed a goaltender a saber and everyone walked off the ice.

The podium was wheeled away, the officials and players took the ice and a hockey game was played.

They played the hockey…

Assessing the future of Big 4 basketball

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

Even without the advantage of hindsight, it’s easy to argue that the Big 4—the University at Buffalo, Canisius College, St. Bonaventure and Niagara—is exiting a golden age of college basketball.

I’m not trying to be aggressively Eeyore, but there’s a natural drop-off when two conference players of the year—Canisius’ Billy Baron (MAAC) and UB’s Javon McCrea (MAC)—graduate, and the…

Immediate reactions: Sabres 3, Oilers 1

blog by Ryan Nagelhout  •   •  

Buffalo Sabres fans should be afraid of the Edmonton Oilers.

The worst team in hockey wasn’t intimidated by the second-worst on Thursday night, as Buffalo continued its second major west coast road trip with a 3-1 win in Edmonton.

Few Oilers players, and certainly not the Oilers team itself, is worthy of genuine fear.

But the fact that Edmonton lacks an intimidating team in…

Friendly roll: Former Purple Eagle’s book a swish for fans - INTERVIEW

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

A largely basketball-indifferent area—with the exception of a rabid and outspoken gaggle of Syracuse fans—suddenly finds itself briefly at the center of American’s attention.

Hosting the NCAA Tournament’s second and third rounds provides Western New Yorkers with a broader understanding of college basketball, as the literature exposed to fans expected to jam-pack the First Niagara…

QCRG: Furies, Knockouts reign supreme - PHOTOS

Lake Effect Furies effectively block this Jam attempt by Kalamazoo Killamazoos in 198 to 195 Furies' win.

It was the most exciting ending to a Women’s Flat Track Derby Association bout we have ever covered.

The Queen City Roller Girls hosted a sanctioned WFTDA bout between our hometown Lake Effect Furies and the Kalamazoo Killamazoos, and the Furies, with seconds to go in the bout, trailed 195-184.

Resilient Lake Effect, however, scored on successive jams at the very end to roll…
