Our producer Matt you calendar and a great job today have a little funny little new school I'm old school. This new school social media set up on Twitter. South sports is the Twitter feed also go to the FaceBook page become a fan and you can hear all about my takes on buffalo sports and other. Sports is what that I did following use -- don't disappoint me now I am a follower of yours on Twitter I -- quite often. Okay we'll tell everybody where they can value at Matthew collar ME TT HE WC OLO Leo that's. You can also follow Donte -- we just talk about him he always says some interesting things I'll leave. Any day. Little orphan Annie. Decoder ring to decipher some of the stuff that he tweets about -- area 51 and it's a major technology. The try to figure it out. I'm not a people's. -- always -- today and bash -- I'm being realistic. If you're gonna save your leader. In your talk much believe you are. That show leadership. Don't talk about. Leading the team and laughing at your own employer for drafting guys player position she'll look at voluntary workouts be a leader that's what leaders view. That's all that's -- -- embraces buffalo -- Stevie Johnson. Want to be a part of the city was it part of what's going on here. Not like Willis McGahee. Not like Marshawn Lynch. What guys wanna be here be -- part of the community that's what buffalo is all about that's what this city. Is areas all about when it comes to sports. -- -- In other parts of the country. It's different. That the bills the sabres. These teams are such a maverick to our. Well being in our society it's unbelievable. And you may say that set other people may say that's that. But it's so much of our identification of who we are. When you live in another city you're listening online -- -- the -- your pocket dot com. You live in another city you allow your bills Jersey -- paraphernalia. Your hat whenever people snicker at buffalo in Canada. Now. Never ever have sunshine and buffalo yes. Got to deal with that stuff. I know what it's like out there for people from other cities who don't know about what it's like here we love our sports the part of what we do but that's helping identify us when they see us. -- here talking about it. Now. Speaking of the bill's. Speaking of being front and center. There's somebody is going on around out there. That the bills could possibly. Be one of the teams. That HBO's hard knocks. Could pitcher. 8030550. Is the number by the way at 8030 by fifty. Or 1888550. To -- it. Already. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons have said no thank you to HBO's hard knocks. I gotta give. A lot of credit. The Bucs coach Rodney -- is for saying now. That is not something. That the Bucs -- They -- young team. They're gonna Havel lot of expectations. Compared to last year no thought to be very good at the youngest team in the league last year they won more games there on the cusp of making the playoffs they didn't. So -- got a lot of people looking at them with -- expectations this year. Plus they have. A draft pick they drafted that's going to have some question marks about him daequan bowers. Plus they have a guy that just got indicted for shooting at Texas Aqib Talib. That's a great decision by Iraqi Morse don't let those cameras in there you don't need that distraction. And it's all that Atlanta they have been able to handle little. But not the bills I do not want the -- on hard knocks. I'm just you know what I like when they're on prime time you get to watch -- and all that stuff. I understand all that. I don't people wanna see the bills on prime time. I know that I know that people wanna see that national pundits talk about the bills I get that. But I do not wanna see the bills on hard knocks they do not need that distraction. They have. A team they're trying to build. They have a team that has new parts new pieces. They don't need cameras in their -- point 47. So as much as you wanna see the bills profile in featured in all over the place not always a good idea. Let's focus on football that's what we need in buffalo. Jordan Rochester. Want to talk about Donte Whitner which I Jordan. -- sell it well it. That they Laettner but it all you bring up a good point and are not likely that -- under percent there. Bill couldn't handle it -- neither could Tampa in the furthermore public displayed the bill I'd I'd say well they're training camp picked up for Sonia. The Rochester training camp this plate club met and I I think it's a big distraction -- they -- -- -- -- -- -- -- there's going to be a much better shape it's my opinion and. That's what if they were too may be and when the Toronto. Thing expires what do they went the other way in the eighty played a game at Syracuse is carrier -- in stat. I regret I think the public to expand the base. Yeah I've been a season pickle for want to have my cycle for that -- just. Yet that they would result in all. I'll I'll play I watch this guy number one I was against. Drip feed him so high when they draft they don't but I'll try out west you're watching very closely. This guy played good football. Well it's Cincinnati game with the bills overcame that 21 point deficit won by seventeen I would -- big -- Cincinnati and watched him carefully on some critical -- late -- game. -- -- Put had in note that it's sent some of these receivers. Key third down play. He'd take capable letter of epic game with a physical play and I saw indications that other parts of the the -- two I think that guy. Make a commitment to little and and that they should've done -- that -- drafting Aaron Williams. They could've picked up this -- -- my -- out of UCLA big linebacker but. Well Jordan I had I would have no problem with Donte -- returning to the bills as long as he doesn't make top five safety money that's the only issue app I think he can be a good. Player for this team going forward he can be a part of what they're doing. But I do not think he's worth that much money that would be better invested in other parts and that's what he wants you wanna -- that. I well -- people look at what for seven million or something so yeah yeah I I. I'd go to a compromise maybe go I think -- stateside for 66 to six point two light and I think that's reasonable for a -- I think he's a good player I think. He's sure last year in. I and I and I think he's a decent leader I I agree with -- -- your points eight united camp right now -- and. What goes beyond that I just think he needs to tone it down and -- just show more leadership on his. Twitter feed and things like that instead of talking about not wanting to be here or mocking his employer I don't think that's leadership at all Jordan. While tiger out you know thing that bothers me about the the bill by and I leveled. There. At that they're biggest samples. Is the way they've. That signed players guys like Pat Williams who they. Let go based upon a billion dollars over four years. You know London Fletcher. They thought they hit it. -- over the hill move and still played football any. That's why would either eliminate it looks like what there's going to be gone off the team because -- -- -- for a 67 billion or six point two whatever turns out the. All right we gotta run here they are now called Jordan thank you very much I appreciate it 8030550. 88 -- 525. That the all right now Matt. If the bills overs while I know you wanna see the northern paradox but let's throw it out there when asked. A question to the Twitter audience here. Okay we're gonna do this have a little fun with this the first wanna ask you this isn't the question of the Twitter audience and -- you personally. Who would you like to see what team would you like to see -- hard knocks while I just thought I don't think the bills -- shot in its first life I think it's going to be as much sexier team I don't think they're gonna give at the buffalo. They love having teams like the jets on there. What I'd like to see I don't know what team is the most drama what's it mean they're not a third of the ravens right right about drama drama drama about drama right for me it's the opposite. I love watching and learning from those who are better. I wanna see the Pittsburgh Steelers. Let's see what goes into how every year you can be that competitive and that kind of a first class organizations scenes Roethlisberger situation. But they are always competitive there always first class what is in that secret sauce I wanna now. It's in James Harrison's needles that he has. Wow Matt he would not go there I don't like it's. Neither do I look to see them I I always like watching and learning from those better than me it's like when you're younger you know recently street hockey and my brother and his friends. And its failure to literally -- -- 34 years younger than I was like 78 years Obama do with. I wanna challenge I want to show I wanna show you reckon I wanna know and be a part of -- -- you're better than me. -- what people are better than me I like watching. Those that are better to see what makes you don't find. Beating up on a twelve year old candidate in history I regret I tried I would like to see Carolina I want I I wanna see not they -- -- at a clinic only goes against resign. I wanna see Cam Newton and behind the scenes of his growth that's -- I think that's a great that's a great reason to watch that would be actually captivating TV and as it. Quarterbacks coach by trade myself I would like to see that in what goes into that but. Matthew if the Buffalo Bills. War on hard knocks. I wanna know from the Twitter audience -- sell sports. At the Buffalo Bills -- on hard -- give me a sub title. Of what the show would be call. Give me yes title of what the show what would be cult so for example we say.

I like it as a good one absolutely. 8030551888552550. The NHL Stanley Cup finals are about to begin at last night I was traveling in the air to get here. In the I did not seek game seven was delayed at the airport and it just so happen like it took off rate during the start of the second period I was on the tarmac for awhile. Didn't see it mandated opened up my phone one nothing Bruins win they go to the cup. First time since 1990. And. This has got to be very disconcerting. For you -- York buffalo sports man. Who grew up here. Because if you're like me. And you grew up here. You cannot stand anything about the city of Boston sports. I know -- some Red Sox fans out there we have a team in buffalo growing up in Major League Baseball so all of us adopted team from it was the Yankees for you -- and the Indians -- the pirates because of the vices were with them. Some of the blue jays whatever. Persona might be a Red Sox. But the Bruins were always public enemy number one. In the early eighties -- park game seven against Bob Sony still one of my haunting memories advocate 1983. The Bruins were always a thorn in the side then the patriots got good. Later they were they pretty much -- in the eighties. And we watch them win titles. But the bottom line is if you are from buffalo -- buffalo sports -- the worst thing in the world that use the less things to be running for. It's for the Boston Bruins to win the Stanley Cup let me tell you why. Because. As -- hissed as crazy as a noise and Boston sports fans are. Can you imagine if they win another -- get this mr. -- my producer. If the Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup. The city of Boston the metro area of New England. Will that happen I believe I can do my research on this and know for sure I believe it will be the first city. To win all four professional sports titles in the same decade or within ten year period. The Celtics. Have won it. Over the past ten years obviously. The Red Sox a couple of times over the past ten years the patriots to three times over the past ten years depending on when you wanna go back to 2001. The Bruins could make it four for four. City -- champions. Now we don't want that. We already hate you enough you're already annoying enough. Where RD jealous enough that's what comes out. I want to happen don't root for the Bruins. I will give you. -- -- on the Stanley Cup. But first we're gonna go to -- What's going on -- you're a Sports Radio WGR 550. It's a couple comments -- You're you're absolutely right Bob Austin but I will argue that stop the Austin event ever let them bot took a lot like the buffalo fans but it would be -- have come. I'll play golf for a look -- record and integrate back. I take my call the common I want to -- -- not exceed exports should be at these -- it. You know what you have the first culprit this year comedy -- -- -- -- on I well it technical merit occur throughout Turkey doesn't shall. It's a lot producers Eric you know about those other guys at all and then -- we are you still. Year ago -- some open looks they're well lot of remember -- Uncle Sam YouTube I'll Altman the two dollar they came over through. Turn around -- played in both Obama or -- -- that -- the state democratic shell expects economic. Thank you very much that's awesome he got to see that that's like the Google dials my brother my Brothers appears older than me. Growing up buffalo he should tell me no line. I'm going down to Blind Melon I guess unemployment still there and I'm like mountain watching this group called Google house at bat. To name is that yet shows how much I -- look at these guys are well. I love. Talk about a cup finals. This gonna come down to. Basically specialties. If being. Boston Bruins can play five on five hockey. They win this thing. If there's a lot of penalties I remembered -- game seven against given no penalties -- -- the edge. For Boston. There's a lot of penalties. Either way Vancouver has an extreme -- get this. Out of the sixteen teams that made the playoffs. Vancouver third. In the NHL playoffs. On the power play Boston fourteenth. Vancouver eight and the penalty kill Boston ninth and the -- there are about even about midway. But there's a huge advantage for Vancouver on the power play. Just like there was for Tampa and -- and a -- partly goals in game six to help them went. But if you. Wanna find a winner in this game it's gonna come down to who can be more discipline and the bottom line the fact is in it pains me say it is Boston is more built. To win a cup they are they are really the kind of team that is built for a blueprint to win a Stanley Cup. Good goaltending. With excellent supporting cast. Some clutch scoring just like last night game seven of the third period. I think Boston can when it but I think. Those refs are gonna let these guys play at least I'm hoping and I'm gonna take the Vancouver Canucks in seven games Matthew. I'm taken Vancouver -- and maybe because I don't wanna hear how great. That team -- -- that is they want another title. I'm not really good -- predictions I'm always wrong so maybe -- predict Boston in three and a half at a -- Be wrong maybe three gonna have a -- and every game they get to empty net goals that's leopard at the heiress that your Bruins fan. Will and then to. Bruins into. That's out there. Horrible I can't stand now I don't know why Bruins don't bother me as much as say you know the Celtics spanned Wagner's -- the the Red Sox guys you know. My intern as the Red Sox and you don't know who Mike Green well -- -- at a hold them. I don't like -- Mexico to high school baseball down in my area while yet to meet a few times and hasn't conversations with a he has restored Mike Green will still. Really upset that Jose Canseco 188 MVP I was gonna bring out -- he believes he was you know he deserves he thinks he should get it right now I think Canseco apologized to him and said that he would give it to him if he could. My Greenlaw has some kids -- were terrific baseball players vote green well as a quarterback anyway at the university Miami to play baseball so good -- It coach Mike Green Cape Town from -- what's going I'm Amanda what do you like in the cup. Vancouver I'm what you sell I -- that's. The and the -- they're my least favorite. How can you know what that buffalo enjoy anything when Boston wins ever. I still -- -- But I -- you know I just don't think I think right now and -- rolling they have too much talent into deep. And I think and 1005 or six games. -- that -- win this -- I mean this is it that but this is a remembered how they beat Lecavalier and Saint Louis and those guys. And -- coast and they can beat this team. Oh absolutely and ankle targeting mobile for Beckett can be huge for them. It's sounds like he's gonna play. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Started off to play out shaky but the last three -- scary considering group. Maybe eat they handle candles eighteen that's as deep as anybody and in general this year -- in the NHL was much better. On the teams are much deeper that much faster. And and Vancouver is -- small -- by any means I think they papers in cyberspace and I just. Again as well as much as I Mikey I do now on -- the only. -- in sports team -- can stomach at all Celtics. Threatened -- can all go away. As far as I'm concerned in and take over fans with them. IndyCar well bandwagon. Boston's -- few years ago I was sitting at the stadium. I'll -- game and are some -- -- -- -- thirty or so over the patriots or patriot fans behind me talking about the best patriots receiver vault and that -- operating loss. And I mentioned the -- Stanley Morgan there was probably is and there are only one of them. That is that that is the definition of the Atlantic in your right. Absolutely. And the guy I kind of felt bad for the guy and we want we want to see you could just how he was embarrassed by -- the rest of the people there. As soon as you can tell that he was simply wouldn't answer. 3040 years like you -- I would the bills. And they -- just stop. Tom let's be honest it really comes down to the fact that world -- we are jealous of them winning championships. So that's what comes out to so we -- a lot of respect for Abbas and battling and we hate you we hate you not think to the phone -- Tom from NTR. I got a great trivia question for you mister -- let's see how did you -- this right Wilt Chamberlain. You're right ding ding ding anytime anywhere NASA trivia question has to say always. -- This is great -- this tonight at a bar somewhere all either going up Memorial Day weekend having a good time I. Use at a bar somewhere. There are two cities two metropolitan areas. That have played each other in the Stanley Cup the World Series. The Super Bowl. In the NBA finals in these two cities that actually matched up and all four at some point in time for example. Buffalo and Dallas and actually played into the latest in the company at each others were stars and it latest durable -- published twice. What two cities have played each other. It all for. Union many beginning. It's tough now it's an incredible feat when yet about it right it is I can't think of who that would be right okay what latte on the TV hit. Your favorite baseball team this Day-Lewis that's right the team we just talked about -- his Boston there you go. Saint Louis and Boston get this you wouldn't think -- the great trick question years and I thought about this because I was researching some of Boston's done -- championship mr. -- my brain works and look up one thing -- public and others. The Bruins play the blues in the 1970 cup finals. The patriots played the St. Louis Rams in the 01 suitable January -- The Red Sox played the cardinals. In 19461967. And 2004. And the Celtics played the Saint Louis hawks. Three times back in the late seventies late fifties early sixties and doesn't count it's the NBA finals. By the way you think Vancouver does that pressure on him they're playing for all of Canada. They're playing for all of Canada you know they hosted the Olympics which was great. Did a great job with that although it was horrible -- -- drug score Ryan -- -- that. The last Canadian team -- the Stanley Cup was 1990 with the Edmonton Oilers. Over the boss amber 44 Canadian teams -- actually made it since ninety vehicle overnight before. And we had a string of three straight cops could ever there was no seasonal five. 04 Calgary 06 Edmonton 07 Ottawa they all lost. So for all of Canada for the love of Canada we don't need Vancouver went to put those Boston fans their place we on the mic over to win. I hope it happens. We have one segment left on the program there's one big thing we haven't touched on yet. And of course that is the NBA finals but Dallas Mavericks taking on the Miami Heat. And Thomas Bennett to a little bit about buffalo. Because if there is one team there's one team I should say the bills fans can identify -- In the series doesn't mean reform but there is one -- the bills they can identify Saint Louis hawks. That would be -- in the fifties and sixties I'll tell you about that argument pick. The NBA finals when we return at the other side of the break your listening. To south of watch your producer -- you collar. -- WGR Sports Radio fight it. All right before -- do anything before you anything. You are all correct. My bad -- to admit when I was wrong when I'm wrong 1993. The Montreal Canadians they have a -- Beat the kings' Wayne Gretzky in the Stanley Cup finals. Remember that series well just totally drew -- blank and skip over what I was. Making sure before set so thank you all of you. Who texted. My producer -- you -- tell him how dumb the new guy is on the radio. I appreciate that thank you to do couple of people like Dan. And Brett let me know on Twitter. I did omit the -- Canadians but it's an eighteen years. Since a Canadian team won. The Stanley Cup I'd love to see. -- for more reasons than one as you just heard in the last segment I don't want Austin what I'm tired of. Great point made. Tweeting me at sell sports by the way I read the Smithsonian Ingrid Smith. He says. -- It's really sad to think basically. That the city of Boston in the area will actually could possibly have all sports titles. Before the bills even beat the patriots again. That is in -- That's actually true. Every one of them could have been one and -- then they'll be patriots would 03. I think the patriots won in 04 I think that's horrible after that idiot they want one after that Celtics once and sent. Red Sox once and then it could do it they can actually hold all four major sports team titles. In the same time period. Since even before the last time the -- beat the patriots on the field which is ridiculous. Access when you think it is sat. So again thank you all very much for texting and I was wrong. Omitted that. Peace the Canadians did win the cup in 1993 they beat the LA kings I'm told it's five games I think that's right. So thanks a lot and I appreciate you correcting me on that you are. Correct a Mundo. Who's gonna win this Dallas Miami series. To be honest -- I'm not a LeBron hater -- hate LeBron because of the decision. I like LeBron is great I love watching greatness he's terrific. He's answered the question about -- he's closer he's been closing all playoffs long Dwyane Wade hasn't really done that. Wait a great player. LeBron hater -- LeBron lover. I watch them. I think it's terrific what he can do what he did the fourth quarter the other night was incredible. Was about three minutes left to put. Chicago and he -- -- you know what actually enjoyed watching the heat with all the haters it's funny because. Sometimes Matthew I pick up my rooting interest is based on. Who I liked it if if there's people to get more mad actually wanna see them be met because I've suffered so much. Angering humility in my life as a buffalo sports fan I kind of one of the people to go through that. You wanna see the people of Miami happy like -- not already happy. Like ol' boy they really need a championship because they can't just go to the beach in -- ninety degrees right now I wanna see LeBron haters. I wanna see them -- but I'll be honest with I struggle with this 'cause I really like Dirk adjacent. So this this NBA finals comes down to me. It's not a hate it -- usually there's one team I just don't want -- -- -- like the Bruins and static. Neither one of these teams don't hate enough. But there's one team that I identify. In that is the Dallas Mavericks. Why is that Matthew because Israel have the answer they have two of the greatest NBA players to never win a title. Dirk Nowitzki and Jason -- I wrote downloadable list of the greatest NBA players that I can think of that haven't won -- there's many more obviously. Guys like Reggie Miller Charles Barkley. The number one I thinking at the time together Karl Malone and John Stockton. Patrick Ewing Patrick chewing -- Steve Nash. Allen Iverson had a great score. I think ever since then -- even -- Arabic to a more college player really what it was it was an NBA star. Dirt with Nowitzki know which keep Nowitzki you say tomato I say tomorrow. And Jason -- are absolutely in this group. And as much as I don't really don't care what people -- I -- I will is his career is over didn't win a title. I don't feel sorry for all that because look at. We went through that it Jim Kelly -- when my third at times that when when Darryl Talley Andre -- is without and when what I don't necessarily feel sorry but I do identify with the mavericks. And I do. I would like to see. Dirk Nowitzki winning a title I would like to see Jason -- when a title I think they deserved it they've been to the greatest stars of my generation. In the NBA. They don't have that -- And I really believe -- that. A -- gonna get. It is not this year he will get one eventually I'm not so sure about Dirk NG secure especially -- -- this Libya. Jason -- is. Meeting to me he's like the smartest basketball playing overseas and I saw -- play but. When he blocked. I don't remember who shot it was that he was to rent he blocks a shot with less -- a second left he calls timeout just like that it was crazier in most guys just chuck the ball down without even thinking. It's like he's thinking all the time I've never seen a player like that. I I would be happy I've been a fan of his. He's one of the first guys I ever bought a Jersey of when I was little as a huge basketball fan I had the old mavericks five Jason Kidd. I remember when he was ecology callous when I was in college at Syracuse that's solely as you can came out and he was a superstar high school level. They went to cal -- and -- -- they're in mind the MBA obviously so for the maps armor for the maps. I want the mavs who we elect. So I don't know I think is a big hit series I don't. I I think they're gonna get rash I just think that their way to all the way to slow LeBron and -- is gonna run -- dongle government can be -- and well. I hope. That doesn't happen because I think LeBron will win more as his career goes on. Jeffrey -- tweets everyone hates LeBron that he didn't use their city. I think part that's true but it's mostly because the way each weekly on his way out -- for a national television audience and I hated that I don't hate and I think he's just. It's really really bad decisions and people giving him advice on how to go about things hey we gotta get out here Matt.
