Sabres, Buffalo Bills, PUSH Buffalo

Hi Everyone,

Quick Update:

A reminder that the Sabres season is on the line tonight. I think this list is split 50/50 versus Sabres fanatics and Isles/Rangers/Devils fans who either hate them or are rooting for them as a last resort.

The team has played very poorly in this series but after watching them this season score countless times in the final minute and stage monster 3 and 4 goal comebacks in the final period I REFUSE to count them out. If there is any team capable of pulling this off, it’s our Sabres. I read a great article this morning comparing this series to the Oilers game. At this point, we’re down 35-3 but we’ve got the ball and if we score here, we get an onside kick at home on Saturday afternoon. Say you were watching when it happened!!

The puck drops tonight at 7pm on Versus. The Blue Moon (75th and 1st) and Kinsales (3rd Ave between 93rd and 94th) will be rocking.

The Bills conducted their three day rookie minicamp last week as well as announced that the great Steve Tasker will be inducted to the Wall of Fame in the upcoming season. Get all the details at Bills Daily:

PUSH Buffalo Fundraiser
Finally, a number of members have alerted us to a great organization back home called PUSH Buffalo. PUSH is a grassroots, non-profit community organization working to rebuild the West Side of Buffalo. PUSH organizes residents to confront institutions that perpetuate poverty on the West Side and to create and implement an action plan for improving the neighborhood. They are having a fundraiser in NYC and it sounds like a great time. The details are below and you can get more info on their website:

On Saturday, June 9th, PUSH Buffalo will host a celebration of Buffalo culture in midtown Manhattan. The party is open to all those who know that Buffalo is the greatest city on earth. It will feature Buffalo cuisine, Buffalo interior decor and a Buffalo-themed silent auction. Four musical acts–all with Buffalo roots–will perform: DJ Kevlar, DJ Caps, Rabbi Darkside and Hylofi.

Thanks to SEIU 1199, the party will be held in a penthouse space with beautiful views at 330 W. 42nd Street, 33rd floor. It begins at 8 PM. The $20 admission will assist PUSH in the renovation of a vacant building at 129 Chenango Street on Buffalo’s West Side. PUSH, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, redevelops abandoned buildings, transitions low-income folks from renting to owning and advocates for Buffalo’s struggling neighborhoods.

Let’s Go Buffalo!!
