Shuffle off to Buffalo!

Hello all 642 Bills fans!

Well, the 2004-05 schedule is out and preparations for an NYCBBB trip to the Holy Land have begun! In speaking with various Bills staff members, Matt and I have decided that we will make the trip to Orchard Park for the November 7th Bills/Jets game. This game would be much easier to get bulk seats to, and we could also drag any Jets fan friends to Western New York for a game and use them to pump some money into the local economy. I’m still ironing out details, including flight plans, but a tour of the facilities and a player meet n’ greet are at the top of the list for any of you that join us.

Please email me if you have any interest so I can start building a list and contact you with details when I get them.

Many of you have bought tickets to the Buffalo Philharmonic’s performance at Carnegie Hall on June 6th. For those of you that haven’t, ticket prices range from $20-57 with a discount for our members. Tickets can be ordered through CarnegieCharge at (212) 247-7800. Don’t forget to mention Code (BPOP) to receive your discount. Great seats are still available, but don’t wait too long!

Come on out and support one of Buffalo’s great cultural icons!!!

Tim Russert’s Book
My VP just gave me a copy of Tim Russert’s new book, which is about his life growing up in Buffalo with his father. Included are some pictures, one of which is Al Gore showing “satellite images” of why the homerun throwback in Tennessee was a fair play. I think we all know that it WAS NOT. I’ll let you know what I thought after I read it.
