Good luck with this one. There seems to be competition. No Animal Kingdom nor Mine That Bird line up. Some of these horses can run. That's exciting and bodes well for a fun summer. Who wins the Derby will be... Continue reading

The fans jammed into the Ninth Ward, all 110 (150 capacity) of them, and surprised the venue staff but not the band. Singing old, new and in full force, Sunny Side Up delivered a sometimes raucous, always entertaining 90-minute show. Just returning from colleges across the east, they were working...

Sunny Side Up reconvenes after the first semester of freshman year and performs their Winter Break Concert Thursday Dec 22 at the Ninth Ward at Babeville, doors open at seven. $5 Continue reading

The Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts held their graduation ceremonies today in the almost brand new auditorium of the $46 million building dedicated to the visual and performing arts. The Class of 2011 pulled in nearly $2M worth of music, dance, fine arts and theatre scholarships to extraordinary... Continue reading

The Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts (Arts Academy) Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of David DeWitt, played the Rochester Jazz Festival - http://www.rochesterjazz.com - for the second year in a row, and five Sunny Side Up members contributed significantly. Wynton (drums), John (stand up bass), KC (guitar) made... Continue reading

Today's the final day of recording for the untitled, sophomore Sunny Side Up CD. At 6pm, Executive Producer Ken Rutkowski will wrap it up, and in the days following, create the master disc. This gets handed over to the replicators, along with the artwork, and the shrink wrapped CD is... Continue reading

Sunny Side Up's 9 members all have enviable, natural musical talents. Wynton, on drums, has already won some competitions - listen to "Evolve" when it comes out this summer, and you'll understand the level of his talent quickly. Johnathan is proficient in electric bass, standup bass, key boards and vocals,... Continue reading

Sunny Side Up is not your father's band, nor your brother's. KC on guitar with Alejandro singing started in a Little Italy coffeeshop 2 years ago and folded in not one, not two, but seven more musicians to form Sunny Side Up in Buffalo, New York. Since then: a vibrant... Continue reading

Usually, nothing untoward ever happens in the Preakness. One of the lower price favorites wins the race. Poor performers in the Derby generally perform poorly here. But then again, the Derby usually is not won by a turf horse coming... Continue reading

Nothing has changed. The Flyers can score a lot of goals, but they are suspect on defense starting with their lack of a goalie and star defenseman, Pronger. The Sabres have Miller and a young defense that can, at times,... Continue reading

In the final home game of the season, the Sabres played a Flyers team looking for a point, as were the Sabres. We beat them, in overtime. Will the playoffs be a different match up? No. That was the match... Continue reading

I don't think there is much new with the Sabres. We had such a dismal experience with the trade deadline pick up last year, what's his name, that I can't even begin to fathom any impact from Boyes in the... Continue reading

It feels right. Not just the "money's not an object" statement, because that doesn't guarantee anything. He brings a little soul to the club about which many of us have a great passion. In the winter, life sucks in Buffalo.... Continue reading

Gerbe, Ennis, McCormick, Adam, Weber, the Portland contingent has arrived. Even Enroth the goalie has demonstrated he belongs. Let them play. The others, Connolly, Pominville, Stafford, can all sit. They have lost their nerve to go to the net. Even... Continue reading

There was something wrong with the thinking in the last post. For one, it ignored the ugly, 10-point reality of the first 20% of the season. Secondly, it jumped to conclusions (my current means of getting exercise) that would stretch... Continue reading

I get it now. I listened to Jim Kelley, journalist, former Buffalo News sports writer, covering the NHL now for ESPN, I think. He gets it, and now I do. Mediocrity: this defines the Sabres and the Sabres System is... Continue reading

Eventually, I start feeling bad after lambasting the Sabres in a post (see most recent Critical Flaw), not too distant a feeling from that of a parent after a particularly harsh disciplinary measure. After all, they are my team, they... Continue reading

I still can't get over how the team could not show up for the home opener. Not a Tuesday night game against Atlanta in February, but the first home game of the much anticipated season - lots of Stanley Cup... Continue reading

I had never thought of it, but no Sabre since Drury left has ever won the Stanley Cup. That's a gaping hole. This year, we have 75-year old Niedermeyer, but at least he's won a Cup. It seems to have... Continue reading

I feels like forever since we stunk out the houses of TD and HSBC. Over a long, slow and hot summer not much has changed...a few less, a few new, no one outstanding going in either direction, although I would... Continue reading

That we would go after a significant acquisition in free agency was just a pipedream. We never have and with the current administration, we never will. Despite considerable justifiability that a cup run sooner than later is in order, given... Continue reading

When Donna Brothers, commenting on NBC from her pony on the track behind the starting gate for the Preakness, said that Super Saver looked a little thin and drawn (or something to that effect), I was thankful I hadn't bet... Continue reading

Finally, Boston is starting to play like Boston. Losing three straight to the wounded and wild Flyers is an accomplishment. It just emphasizes how poorly Buffalo played against them in the first series. And irritates me to no end. Montreal... Continue reading

In everything I have read by all of the horseracing experts of the time, nothing has been mentioned about what I think is very significant in Super Saver's past performances: He had only two preps before the Derby. The last... Continue reading
