So its official, Eric Moulds is now a Houston Texan. The Bills received a 5th round pick in this month’s draft in exchange for Moulds, which we hoped for a 4th rounder but is better than nothing and frees up $5 million in cap room. I’ll miss Moulds, he was a solid player who was never given a solid QB to work with for a long period.
In case you haven’t heard, Ralph Wilson met with Gov. Pataki this week and voiced his worries that the Bills could leave Buffalo. That was the low of my week. Then the high of my week came hours later when Tom Golisano (Sabres’ owner) stated that he may have interest in buying the team to keep it in Buffalo. This is the first small light at the end of the tunnel that Bills fans have seen in regards to our Bills staying put. Who knows if it’ll happen, but at least it gives us SOME hope!
The NFL schedule was released and it looks like McFadden’s and Calico Jack’s will be the place to be in NYC the first 2 weeks as the Bills head to New England and Miami. They then return to Buffalo for the opener which just so happens to be the Jets game! Kevin Smith, our tailgate guru, was licking his chops yesterday knowing the potential of throwing a great outing for this game, which is also Kenny “Pinto’s” 200th straight game!
Oh yeah, they’re ALL 1pm games! However, new NFL rules allow for the later games to be changed to 8pm if there are playoff implications. Here’s the schedule:
April 29th, all day drink/wing specials, expecting a HUGE Buffalo crowd, awesome times!
SABRES ARE PLAYOFF BOUND!!!
GO BUFFALO!!! GO SABRES!!!
