I would do that all day Adam Schechter. Tomorrow's the question today and show after reports the bills are signing Jeremy Butler. A wide receiver was reported earlier today to be in buffalo for a visit with two others. Butler has been on the ravens and chargers. So far in his two year career caught two passes. Last year for San Diego. 31 for Baltimore. Your before. South of botch your joining us on the AT&T hotline seller be impressed if you could can you tell us anything about Jeremy Boller that we didn't just say it. Now pretty much everything used to that he believed that in the league a couple of years I think yes he has a daughter named as well. He'll chat at least up until 10 o'clock. He has a daughter of by the name of Tyrod Taylor's wife I don't know what are famous. I would be something though when I saw his name come over earlier Roger Butler. I took a look at them and I realize and I did see he has. Look at all is execs too so it's not like an overly huge wide receiver but he bigger than the design. Couple days ago the Carolina Qaeda Philly brown suit room. Yes so you know I mean they're going a little younger here what the Russians are younger he has 25 but are going with. What I thought they would guys at the receiving corps which was. Pretty much Philly guys. Guys you think are ready to make the contribute in this league and then they'll probably add at least one early in the draft maybe another one later and then you still have. Call it list in the obviously there expecting to contribute this year we'll see where that close and will any of the other guys that were here we don't want Justin. Owner for example cell like. He boast someone who was added once the season got going he's available to other teams do you think it's likely that they like to bring him back we need. The big body and he caught some touchdowns. Guys like that are more guys that think the U wait till the dust settles on them because it feels like to me. They're looking for a little more than what you're willing to pay and I. I would say that as far as Zach brown you by the way and you know he's still unsigned at the Erie had that tells me out of the 32 teams. He's probably asking for a little more than what there was any given especially. You'll hear buffalo where these coaches have been really reviewing film on him probably where they value of its echoes for just an article by the way did visit the Pittsburgh's. Dealers that yesterday. I think this is a good question now. Wide receivers that are signing. Safety Yzerman has been movement safety of course fullback and running back if you want it. Have they done any thing in free agency cell that would. That would eliminate opposition from. The first round of the draft for them. You're on your domestic and I know I'm trying to think is that the most significant here is that they would not do something in the draft out even Tyrod. A gas solo Tyrod of course was here already. That court. That would be the only one I would say at all for the little I am even though it would still be possible there's a daddy really kubert loved right immediately possible but. I think it's less likely at safety but still it's a possibility. I think it's still a possibility at linebacker it's still very much a possibility wide receiver. So I don't think they've done anything here that if you went and chew. A month ago or cricket or breathe easier for the Tyrod contract predict that it's written that. Is there any spot you think they can go first round since then I think all of those spots are still in play. Dollars. Breathing Alexander back. Remove the likelihood. Of saved I don't know what's realistic here to the Alabama kid who got sent home from. Columbine fall to ten cut cut. Does resigning Alexander and of course having Bragman impressed and brown here. Take you out of the motor would that still be something you'd strongly consider. I think it's something you'd consider I would not. Think that it woods if it's different Foster sitting there at ten and your view really lake Norman Foster having the reds and Alexander. Is not going to preclude you from that and that's what you're saying but for what they've done would not at all. A tale I don't know if I don't all of their played as ruler that's allowed it to be three down guy I mean he's gonna play a lot of special teams. He's going to place it linebacker and he's got a rush the passer sometimes but I don't think other than the special teams that he's gonna be doing the other two. All whole heck of a lot that says these are not come off the field enough to justify plush you have Preston brown going into a contract year and he's been average as a linebacker last couple of years I think after he performed pretty well under Jim Schwartz a couple years ago few years ago. And you have Reggie wreck and shot off an ACL injury and then those two guys are still. Very similar in their skill sets so. I don't think so at all and I. You know I look at the number that the rent those making racket known all heck of a lot but still pro a nice a nice contract for him and I think a part that is because. Of what he breaks in the locker room with Sean McDermott obviously clearly values and is trying to you guys. Sell about show with us Mike show the Bulldog here on WGR my guest to this question would be hide. Who has some forgetting somebody who TU is the best. Player they've signed in free agency. Cutting arrow and there might be Tyrod Taylor. Well you can again and he wasn't technically a free agent. Check writes I would say Micah Hyde has relied Micah Hyde is clearly an Emmy if you guys go back in. I did an article on possible bills free agent targets. Outside I actually had a plan going in the article McClain was OK I really wanna see lake. Where they usually try to allocate dollars if you notice I didn't put Al shot Jaffray analyst at they're marketable outside ouster effort right you're right. So you looked at the wide receivers or guys and there are that I thought I mean. If that guy to get a lower salaried I think I highly it's rubbed prior that was even I think there's probably not likely. But my point my point is that the EPA's oldest this safeties. Or the only group the only one that I play actual names out there that I said they could go out and paid for because I thought that could happen I thought you'd Tony Jefferson. Or Micah Hyde could be the guy that's how it turned out it was Micah Hyde. And I. I think that that is a really good signing it is a good football player he that's what Sean McDermott wants to do and I would answer your question as Micah Hyde is it is. Not only the best player they'd sign I think it's so it's it's a good free agent signing around the league at ease some all world player but what you're getting in the player. For the value got a four I don't think it's all that bad at all. And to me like the the the money is like that significant for them I think I told I told you on Friday sell when we're together. That I did not go into this free agent period expecting them. To give up thirty million dollar contract really to any one. Think you know I mean recognizing that they had money to spend. But at the same time I just didn't I I guess I just didn't think debate gold fishing for something that big. Yeah I talked about at high hides specifically or yeah right yeah I I agree with you and again it can mean if you ask currently eighty some would say well he's really got that big. He's not he's not there vary of course he's. You know look I mean I would make the argument that Mike I'm healthy Micah Hyde is better than Aaron Williams coming back at his evidence if you give me a choice between. Mike hi that his particular health right now Darrent Williams going back I'll take it might hide all of this I've no idea what I'm getting from Aaron Williams and like I can do. Pretty much anything you're asking airwaves to do. You're just swapping out contracts for guys it's a year younger and much healthier. So. We have the press conference is now you've got players introducing themselves through the media here in the fullbacks both have done so the offensive lineman today or one of we've got a defense of men now here sell what Tom. Here's what I wanna ask you I'd just sort of stalling I guess there was a two week citing numbers from the NFL PA. That had the bills with fifteen million ish left in cap room is that your understanding of where do you think they want and up. Yes but that by the way is. I believe that number is not including lake that includes I mean taking off what you're gonna need for the rookies. So you should have that much available for matches that I think it's going in that you. Going into today. I believe it was about 21 overall you're gonna need about six for rookies so they kitchen at fifteenth. And I think they're gonna want to end up probably. Maybe 5000006. Million. On top of that because you're gonna have to budget for. West End up when I go to camp because you're gonna want a budget for. You may have to sign a guy for a vet minimum or so much caution on million dollars Beasley tenured guy here you know at a aptly dollars visa for five year guy. To bring into play because of injuries so. I would be surprised if he even below that but I think they're probably still willing to play with nine or ten billion here that if they can't doesn't mean they have to but it they care. What is the likelihood. My cup how good an idea maybe isn't as a better way to put it. I'll give an idea is Andre Smith so. Look I think I think almost any right tackle or now's a good idea and I say that because they just they have to start. Fighting somebody who can be consistent player that position and here's a guy that came in in this league. As a top draft pick pretty much you know he was strapped in the top ten. And he comes he goes he was disappointing early on his career they turn it on at Cincinnati obviously he's he's gone away from them since then. But I think if you wanna bring in a guy that at least might have the potential to done in this league. That could be you know you look at you costs here I don't think from talking to dale think he's gonna playwright tackles he's a guy our bodies will play tackle if they unity. Jordan or shall attain two million what does that say about where you value. Obviously doesn't mean I mean they do not value him. As an everyday consistent starting tackle that would give them on a better offer to make sure they got him back and not waited and data for two million dollars. So I think that almost anybody who's competently played that position in this league would be a good idea at this point. Maybe it's because on some subconscious level. I am trying to get back on your good side but I did making a culture related tweet today cell. I don't know what was it about not yours up my good side yet. Got so much as units I think and people were very good about it on lots of great feedback on Friday it would happen and in most people. Just said they don't really some greeted is some disagree with me sums and I think it's a great debate. Yes I feel exactly the same way thank you I'm not a tweet but just to cut I was talking in here about I guess you could it could fall under the category of culture. What I mean I'm not gonna guess at this specifically because who knows but. Gilmore was a good player vet at time is head. You questioning. What his commitment level was. And he goes to the patriots. I feel like he's a player. That if so inclined to be would say this would never happen Bulldog kind of counted there. If that Britain would never happen I said you'd wanna be careful when it beat blew it out for him and I'm curious would sell it say about McDermott could use Gilmore. As a motivational tool. For this team but this guy he was too good for us he took the money. We are right I thought this other at about other coaches as they arrive racks and and Malone. World loved were that were the team here bulldogs made a point earlier talks about is doing time. There there there could be guys the Kabila guys on this team were drafted here feel like. You know is this ever gonna work good players may be like Watkins who think about the day someday they can do with Gilmore just dead. Who knows. Howell. How likely is it. That a coach signaled Sean McDermott here would try to sell all that sort of a mentality to his team. I think it's very likely the general sense. I think it's unlikely he would use a specific example of stuff on them I I believe that he absolutely. Would make it known to. His team. And one of the very first meetings about what you're talking about and how this is not about money. This is about building a winner and being part of something special and a championship in those kinds of things. If you're in this game to simply go out chase money. Like some people obviously have had a chance to come back Caribbean part of what you're doing what we're trying to build them that's not the kind of person we want this locker room so I just gave in his speech. I the I think in general and and a general sense like you're saying. It is almost a necessity like I would I would expected as much of a cliche as it might be. Where I think the risk comes in and have been your hinting that it may be agree with me mentioning Gil more specifically. Could be a problem for guys that are friends with them for I referenced Ronald Darby is an example it. For Ronald Darby right now most of onto a more secure he's got for you mean to close Karen deeds so good there might be personally on that level for metallic Darby. There and our role like and we talked about you know I. Natalie that say this if I would go beyond that even the most coaches assistant coaches head coaches they're gonna tell guys to like look. If you if you do what every what you're supposed to do in Europe part of this and help us win will pay it to it will will pay you'll make your money here. Thank you don't have to worry about going to get it somewhere else have you demonstrate that you're the guy that we need here because we're gonna pay for the guys that they are talented. He wanted to be here at C are great for what we're trying to do here you know it so I think that's that's an Italian try to get I don't that you ever wanna get the message of hey you wanna go if you wanna go play for money go somewhere else you can take last year we definitely want to make sure that they understand. A look at it's just about the money it's not about being a part of something special and building out what you have here in and staying here and be rewarded here. Then and that's not what we're after here we like guys wanna be here be rewarded here financially as well. He got to have success to make that work well. And aren't in the bills obviously didn't and what I don't know what how much of that specifically used to fund awards fault you're home but it would be interesting if he. It needs to know how would have played out if they had built a playoff team at any point you're trying. His time here or even in this last year to it may be very inclined to meet his demands because what we're good. And you mattered. Let's look at it. This I don't blast me to say anything about it it's either a blast me or be comes off as. Sour grapes anytime you say anything bad about Bill Belichick or the patriots but I say this. They have made great value signings over the years they are very good at that because players go there that very reason that go there to win. Take less I got a I think they overpaid for Stephon Gilmore and I'd I I don't know why an acute figured out because he saw firsthand. That you know him getting beat by Chris Hogan down the sideline even though quite adamant his Alter whatever. He's seen that he's played against Tom Brady has torn up this defense that that I was a part of for over 400 yards several times in his career when he was here. And I've said all along I believe what the I think the bills approached us about was right in this case which is look your good player we'd like Q. We don't think you're one of the top I've actually they paid him like that in New England. I don't know into by the way it plays a different scheme and they're gonna have a matched up against top receiver sometimes it Malcolm Lee's especially gas. I don't know I just I I don't think that that is a signing. The Buffalo Bills should at. Should have made and I'm glad. An and I interest at a Y knowingly did it act I think that they overpaid for step or maybe just because they might do it I don't know. So his Gilmore gone more because he wanted to be gone and more because. The bills wanted him to be gone at this point considering. What the dollars about would be. Who who or who's more responsible for the fact that he's not on the team. I mean a player could get to free agency and be like talk to really want I'm Lehman and Italian and could just say we don't want you back. Yet I don't know I don't pay that because both sides so I Gilmore would have come back the buffalo the bills would have brought back. But he absolutely wanted fourteen million dollars a year whatever rate around he wanted to be paid as one of the Sowers in this league in the bills were not going to do that. So to me in the don't question the way I'm thinking of at the answer is. Dead Gilmore is the reason is that that because of the bills would have paid him. Well no I guess those are the reason hill doesn't offer him Ted and a half million dollars in August and he got any got more cash and I don't know that he ever went to the buildings this is the offer on the table or do wanna match that. He probably didn't do that sell out now from. My understanding is the basically wants. Once it got closer to free agency the bills had resigned themselves the fact that we're moving wait we we know what he wants we're not in that market. He he might get Eddie might not but we need to start making other plans. And they could have also given them a franchise tag Imus and they show for the could've gone rats in which case they're culpable for the fact that he's not on the team anymore I don't I don't. I don't buy this thing all about all this I don't really think that he needs to be on this team we've seen so many good players through the years coming go. And the bills in a certain more literal sense didn't need any of them. Because they weren't winning. But they they also wouldn't you know you might dispute this mean is is this right or wrong they have. They have a problem. In that what the losing has met are already a small market say what you want about the facilities of the stadium to whatever extent it matters or is even true. Howard might be less than. They have this added challenge when it comes to keeping guys in signing guys that you know certainly New England but many teams would not have. I think if it sometimes it over Patrick head over to make sure Mario Williams and leave the building I think that that happens. I don't get that sense with guys they have built like you guys I think I think there's a recruiting problem with guys in the outside. I generally think it hasn't been that bad guys that they have like Jerry Hughes like Marcel you know like I don't think Marshall Daria said. I really don't wanna be here unless you overpay it's just I know how good I am this is what I wanna be paid. Jerry Hughes the same thing that your users from Texas that's where his wife is from. You know he didn't have to stay but he agreed to a contract extension. I don't think they've ever really had that problem with their own got a big head OK I don't we really like will overpay courted. You know I mean they they put the franchise tag given he was very amicable to just working something out long term. So it seems to me the problem is simply getting them here and get him in the building getting him. You know it it as a site here's region's once they're here. Think they have to make as much of a sell job financially they just have to work out what the players value believes he has read. You guys in that they signed a couple of safeties already hide employer the kid from Cleveland there's big Knoll you don't talk automobile more here in his leaving. Right now all that's key bunt Seymour street. On the draft of course could change that what we've beaten and I think what we will but certainly could change that. Is that it's said to be a deep draft and corners and they could drafts upon Gilmore replacement. Mean round one if they wanted or maybe round two. So but this is it is it noticeable to you that they haven't gone out and brought in even depth corners must have missed something. But it is noticeable to me because but I think I always remind people this. You have to Egypt's Sinai the guys. And they're gonna sign guys they're gonna go in for the that in a moment they don't sign anywhere after you know a few weeks go by here and they realize what their market value is. And the reason why teams are waiting to get that that cap relief for the Batman don't like 4000 dollar savings so teams are like hey we await we're not gonna give you. One point three billion account at all we give you one million Italy count 600 grand of it. And I think that's what you're gonna start to see those steps I like it quarry weight last year like a sterling Moore last year. You know and then and then you know what watching and the team obviously. So I think that's what you're gonna see those guys I will say you guys asked me a little while ago if there's any position. That may not be on the table anymore I think about all the positions that are on the table that might not have been as quarterback. Through the first little while free agency I I didn't think capital is always a little bit possible they could go quarter in the first round. I think it's much more possible that single corner in the first round because. Since sounds like Durbin the the release a couple good options there'll Sidney Jones from Washington towards Chile is at the Prodi and he might have been a first round pick. Sell in just a few seconds have you heard EJ manuals name once since free agency started. Only from bills to ask you what's going out and I've no ideas no answers seem here agreement cone Dallas. Cleveland McCown. Mean I there's not. I've heard one rumor about Manuel. Now the other we'll see what happens goes it's on the be bored what about geno Smith. Have not heard there was something about him today what they write some of something that he doesn't have this somewhere I can remember exactly. Where that is I do like tubby why did I did. Put some feelers out about my jealously with his situation appears. Here here's a situation that the running back market is not strong teams are not just going out there and grabbing a much running backs and the ones that are visiting our guys who are not gonna cost to a fifth round pick as good as Mike maybe overall market available. On the guy because the bills did put that even though it was a little tender teams are really gonna rush out and get out get out the fifth round pick so I think. From what I understand that those are gonna slow play this. They believe they can get him back as long as they wait let you know they'll they'll weigh their options beat as one of getting off. I agree there are lots of running backs in the draft you've got a TV is Maria and Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson and I immediately see on the market did you name him. They're all taking visits and he's not from what we know what does that tell you meet a team is not willing to give up an asset for a opposition appears though there's a lot out there right now bulls in free agency in the draft. They shouldn't be I think that's probably right because it makes sense self thank you are welcome we do have a abet in here on EJ Manuel making it an opening day roster. He's got to make it through three cells make it through pre season beyond a team like you know the final cut come the first day of the season he's on the team. My prediction is no I said yes. That he'll be in camp and he'll play in the pre season and whatever team has in the breeze and be like yeah idling so. MLB and I don't know has there been another one of these bills quarterbacks and so first round pick by the way whose young. Has there been another one of these bills quarterbacks that just played for the bills just plea for one team in the was gone no. Military media work and Alex Van Pelt place somewhere else after he left. You. Look that up but you know Trent and loss loss and they got they got jobs they just stayed long but he stayed you know Rob Johnson if you wanna go all the way back to them. Fits of course. 8030550. Is our number the bills Gilmore culture. Eject some topics for you will be back after sports here on WGR. And he got just briefly cannon said talked about was expected from position and just the offensive scope in general and it reminds me good that are kind of stuff I didn't Atlanta. It's pretty somewhere in the scheme so we're going to be a lot of things are business effort that our that I won't come out security over to so hopefully our ultimate transition for the guys this New Year's runner for an offense of but this is from two years now so you have a bridge the gap and hopefully I can have some guys on the right. That is a new bills fullback. And I sure hope it's okay Colin that Patrick DiMarco. In a press conference. Got an email or funnel about. Right. Their minds just got an email from a BC it's important. The subject is in all. Capital letters. So should I yellow wallet users actually want to see that from your I could read that from here and what for people know I'm. Six feet away from your computer monitor like I can play in the field. I believe you're reading the headline of the body of the email that's what I'm reading the subject is also an all capital letter asked him tell that from here and in the next line down the slick I tested the DMV like I'm. We can't read and stuff out of that a bit big subject urgency. For them. You can read that headline a body in big bold black tighten the subject of the email is also in capital letters so. You wanna quit right that it says Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh Penguins visit Wayne Simmons and Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night rivalry. Then. It's the body of the email that says in bigger bolder black girl letters. Caps Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh Penguins visit Wayne Simmons and Philadelphia Flyers it was in a rivalry this is not a sentence. It is way too long it takes three lines of copy. Not sure that's blacker. Always black bigot none more black it's it's just spot on solar. We knew before you sent us that this would be the ones that I. It's about time initially got a rivalry there I mean this is actually the one thing I can say is that that's what motives wrong. Better play. And do. It'll be in capital letters and beatable play capital letters of the puzzle that much but the rivalry. And got that right the Bubba don't form at least boomlet that Levin the in my right to be annoyed by that. Own which I did too much I mean I get annoyed about the stupidest things you know what is here's why I would one argue with me. If rivalry night were the Oilers in the flames. Wouldn't watch it. I mean I would respect it. I would respect him a little respect rivalry Niger River their games are and I don't care whatever that whatever they are. I wouldn't have anything I would even think of criticizing it. If I felt like all the teams were in play. But about. Ten of the teams are in play attended twelve of the teams are in play right but maybe it's maybe it's more but they're definitely old US teams. So. You know like that's why I'm wannabes are you about it. But if it's if it's Edmonton and Calgary or something. Which is a great rivalry with great young players and both are playoff teams there's no reason why shouldn't be. I'm just taking the idea I think hoping to seriously. Because of course. It's a it's a bad these games. Right. And they know may want American cities and watch and yes. They think that that's gonna do okay for them. Which they must have you know some reason to think I guess it will do our our all the hockey fans in Oklahoma not watching Edmonton Calgary but are watching Pittsburgh Philly. Go all hockey fans and origins are now watch and under those released Wednesday night games that the NBC sports network the entire schedule. Is about getting the I really think this is what it's about it's about getting the I don't know 80000 fans in a local market that would normally watch the local broadcast to watch NBC sports. That's that's it but that that's what they are striving for. There's theories and all chasing after. The you know non hark nontraditional hockey markets more even traditional hockey markets that are represented on that night I I am I'm still think that's there for. That's I mean I'm sure there are people here that watched that game every week that don't have the satellite package. Like I do that so that they're not suited bored by a the game of the week on and on Wednesday on February oh good a game I'm gonna watch my hockey fan and I've alluded Buffalo Sabres employing cool. But that's not a pub a big enough number I think in any hockey market to have it be impact whatsoever. Pit bulls games I looked last year but I gave up last year was the first year that. To meet David Michael what do you do and. And be eligible to David on TV so we're looking at for their ratings. And they're there are teams last year on NBC sports network between Lexington Louis and Detroit for example. One game last year with the wall number if you worse. It's like 30000. Thousand people want you barely more than are in the bill. Should be like what are you. Look at that went. I mean they just can't do anything but just hope that people in the cities represented watching. That's that's an embarrassingly low doctors and ideas of going to run overnight call happens next years of bribery and have Pittsburgh right. Then one night a year but Pittsburgh Amazon. It is one you're probably comes of that almost not maybe the maybe not but you have to bribery night at Pittsburgh right. And then maybe get me David because let's spur job and they look twice but I did get you know Pittsburg. LA. I mean you could try for light superstar right. But you knew you could do that you don't you could hope for superstar and he. But again you know who who outside of of some pockets like buffalo or Reno I don't know where else I wanna say it's buffalo is always very high lead. Represented in the in the local in the TV in the national rankings when they play we watch will break top five in this about probably. Probably but outside of here what I just don't. He cares man. They they have given up entirely NBC as a partner with the league have I think have given up trying to market. Players that like comic David. No sorry. Matthews you don't exist right. You just don't do you America wait Cade I am one of the biggest North American cities and the NHL franchise arguably now. A terrorist target no interest to bed. Yeah. Yeah out like I mean I wouldn't watch the game anyway probably. I could I it will sometimes watch a weeknight an Angel game those are all the sabres but not often. I almost always do but it is you want more and what I won it last night. The goalie was out he came home and right around game time it's edited amongst Roloson. Man like this that's more insisting to me millions and Jason Carey Price and like all right you know get up to two goalies in new enterprise I don't watch David. Seemed like one of the few times I've sat down and watched him play where he didn't do anything really that great like he didn't stand out that was kind of odd. But still its presence brought it got me and move on to do this watch. Watch this is the game I choose to actually injured there were a couple of other games on the littler Canadian jerseys and one of them happens to be. Being worn by economies oh Edmonton when those warned ones which. You don't wanna. If so you want all the vendors and users and New Jersey for them orange. This. Savers in Columbus splitting games on the weekend the sabres play in San Jose tomorrow night 1030. Tomorrow night in third tonight for their first two of three California games. And 10 o'clock Friday. Columbus going playoffs. By. While I can I'd certainly consider myself critical the sabres for a what I think are good reasons I would not trade. The sabres roster for the Blue Jackets. I wouldn't excitement not even close. Columbus is having a a lucky year. That is almost entirely because of that incredible winning streak early in the season that was. Led by their power play which was insane. For Wada little baby amongst may do little more than a month. And they're going but their record I saw from Ryan Lambert today they have twelve regulation wins their last 31. There's no reason you would take columbus' team overarching the only. Only even cause that you saying that so matter of factly just means is that rents he looks beautiful back there rookie defenseman. Same drafted Michael and David. And Seth Jones and Alex and they've they've got two guys there like I mean I I'm I'm. And arm again give a body part for a guy like him and behind you know what guys are. But as you get older you might really good. Really wanna make an offer that might be I mean much longer to really does think before. To the pinky gets me secularist you're such Jones. Probably the call we will talk. But Dole's got a I Kazaa I have such a need there you know but you can do a pregame show for them Friday night. Not for Columbus but for that game like looking at their leading scorers and the other forwards it's you know sounds nice but he. Think they don't have like with what they don't they don't have a problem they've got guys that are producing and that's great Atkinson a thirty goal scorer. He was like a sort of an afterthought when he scored that winning goal it was so big for buffalo fans two seasons ago. But if he's not someone I'm super excited to have my team he's producing. You know and then it's full you know when Brandon sought again and no ice but. They don't have that got what they do those two DR. To deal. It's pointing and aren't all I want to amend that that I don't wanna say there's no reason you to Columbus may be a lot of people the Columbus but I wouldn't. That's what I listen I I think it's it's a one off year it's a fluke year Calgary have won a couple years ago Calgary is good now I think. That you have you have these years in hockey you want to be just one of these times maybe 2010. We look without really understanding it was our year to just like locked in a little bit. And that and that and in the first round and I think Columbus a season well. 8030550. Will get back to Stephon Gilmore and if you didn't hear. About it the day it's kind of a funny thing. Or you can take it really seriously be mad. And we've got the NCAA tournament and some big cool schools are common to buffalo this week. We will continue Mike show in the Bulldog WGR.

How crazy is it in their Thursday afternoon when games are going next door. Manic mayhem mad house it's gonna be not. In scene there I think I think it'll be WBZ and then the Notre Dame financial pilings there after their game or after the two. Relieved if you wait until both teams are over. Right there Notre Dame at 1215 and then and then West Virginia. 5 o'clock. A place it's already. Just totally jammed from people who take this day author of freer to watch the tournament. Gets that added to it. I mean if there's room may have. Rules on these aren't as ago the people who aren't yet and I predict we were there are wind UB played last year. We do our show we went on the air we carried the game and we went on the air right after that that was last year right. That was two years ago last year we're there to but the game was at night are okay all right so we've played Miami goodnight moon we were there two years ago. It was a man how oh yes that's what is going to be like. You will have some some of those fans go win. Now. That's right I its you know this is not my area but like on the restaurant and I know this is a huge day they also know that. What a few thousand people are gonna wanna come over they're gonna be down there for the night session. There wanna common in my restaurant. Between sessions without there have to go outside and it's going to be freezing out right there might even be staying in the hotel. Is there and remove. That could be very interest thing that is not my area and I apologize of bringing an auto without knowing the answer this is somewhat questionable and only Knoll just you can only do so much mean -- of the place packed the place. So use keep their keep don't unity you know there there are other places around there and holders more than ever thought a lot upstairs to. Yeah that's right there are places down there in the way of upstairs were the people. You know that a virus or where we're we're a long ways we it'll still be. I think we've done shows before 716 and harbor senator existed. We've done shows on this week and or you know that Thursday or Friday at pearl street. And that's a seen what you've got and it's still will be remains to be enough people downtown at that place will be packed even though it's a few blocks away. You've got now is a lot of options between the arena and there that simply did not exist the last time this thing was here. I mean that the stuff that's in those. It in the hotel. Next door there at the mean there's a pizza plan over their liberty pounds over there there's just off there's this off. Hopefully people that visit know all that. I think you'll get you'll get a pretty good I am I hope they've done a good job they they did in years past again would stop and more spread out. All of getting stuff in the hands of fans will be an old like at some idea were ridiculous. Through hotels you know. Here's here's the here's a Google street grid you know you're in here's here are your options. It's. Those are a lot of good options 716 is made for the term yes and you know a lot of place is not not a matter at all is implying that those you mentioned a lot of places just don't know what they're doing with the TVs. I was a broad Philadelphia on Friday morning and stopped. Usually I would just do would drive through stop like halfway driving alone but iced I pulled off near Scranton. And found a Mexican restaurant went right off the exit button and you know what I'm doing that I'm I'm I'm not in a rush I'm gonna go in there. And sit and have a Mexican restaurant meal by myself in Pennsylvania it near Scranton outside of Scranton Pennsylvania wow that like 1 o'clock on Friday that's what I did. And I went in. You wanna see some people where. Nobody. Like that that the servers are all sitting together at a table in like the black uniforms. The roles I want get a feel like I've barged in on something that I walked into the restaurant. But I am I'm gonna do it like Europa an ominous Sydney so I do they had. It wasn't a big place either they had a bar with like five TVs and it was Friday so there were conference tournament games they had all the TVs right. They had could play. Both the FBI and they had an NFL network channel for free agency news they might have debate the baseball network John and one other thing like all right you know why it. They are all sitting together probably talking about their kids but. One guy walks in. Unexpectedly. They've never seen me before to the TV set a desperate for you and they TVs are all ready to go. That's that's respect that young Everest I wish I knew the name of the place it was probably L something. Chances that what but it was good the food was good it was fine yeah yeah I just I looked him forever immediately because of that the TV thing like they put the effort and there you go to a place that's deadly that the TVs might not even be done right. Are there all on the same channel and shall reserve toward what the true but viewing it sure rule which to view they're both you know there is a chill would've built and knew that. None of these people what was watching you know do OK either they're just they just waiting for me. Nice job whoever you are nice job. Much over the bulldogs here which of these schools coming to buffalo. Having their parties you know fan parties the night before would be the most which were those parties will be the most fun to go to. Like the Notre Dame party. Or the Villanova party West Virginia Wisconsin. Is our chance Princeton is a good party. 8030550. Is the number tournament week. The tournament was back to buffalo this is WGR.
