Right Field

The link on Linked In reminds me that I haven’t said anything here in a week. Heaven forbid I slack. It’s been an interesting, and exhausting time since.

Hillary Clinton came to UB this week and I kind of wanted to go to hear what she had to say. I’m an admirer of what she’s been accomplished and if she runs in 2016 I’d most likely vote her way, most likely. Predictably, some galoot yelled “Benghazi!” during the program. While it is important to understand what all was done wrong (and there seems to be enough fault for everybody), I can’t help but wonder where that jamoke’s righteous indignation was during Beirut in 83, Nairobi later on, and so on.

I don’t care about the Ipad air (sorry)

After working out in the elements, I watch game 3 of the World Series only to see it end on an umpire’s call of “obstruction.” I’m sure that has the folks in Red Sox nation in a bit of a tizzy this morning. One of the delights in not having a particular “horse” in this fight, was that I could enjoy my Guinness while watching a friend’s angst over such things.

Said friend reminded me of the Sabres’ score (another loss), to drink my beer, and shush my face.

Watching the Bills, as some effort is there.

It’s pretty easy to pick on the Sabres at the moment as they aren’t giving us much to love other than stellar play by the goaltenders, but when a Sabres/Bruins game doesn’t sell out as happened this week, you got to know there is a problem there. When the game itself has all the excitement of one too many stays at the Bubble Hockey table, it really doesn’t matter what the variety of offerings are in the concession stand.

If management is surprised, fix it. And while you are at it, note that Toronto is leading the division and with 69 games left, I don’t think we can catch them.
