Sorry folks, but this is going to be one of those "nothing to do with Buffalo" posts. I just had to throw this up because I think it is absolutely amazing.
For those of you who don't check out any sports websites/blogs on a daily basis, you may have missed highlights from the first episode of "Joe Buck Live" on HBO. Who the fuck could make you care about watching highlights from a live show from Captain Douchebag himself, Joe Buck, you ask?
Artie Lange. That's who.
No, this doesn't mean they're having a kegger at HSBC Arena. Well, maybe they are. Who knows what happens in there during the off-season...
...oh, right. There IS a team that lifts trophies in that building. Just not the one we wish it were.
But back to my main point. The Sabres will be holding a NHL Draft Party at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery on Friday, June 26th from 3pm to 10pm. The event is free and there will be food, drinks and players available for ridicule, I mean, signatures.

There isn't much going on these days at One Bills Drive, so here is a lovely Sabres update for everybody. Most of the news is from the last two weeks, so bare with me. If you have a problem with that, please contact our complaints department.

My apologies for no High Character Friday post last week. I was waiting on possible entries from several people, and... well... nobody sent me anything. But this week I make up for it with a very special guest! My better half, the Scizzette!
Everybody enjoy! Oh please, please enjoy!!! If you don't enjoy she will hurt me again...
I am so scared... soooo cold and scared.
JUST JOKING! She is a very lovely and beautiful young woman (who happens to beat me). Take it away, Scizzette!
The AP has reported that the Buffalo Bills have cut five players after the conclusion of their first mandatory minicamp.
Those included on the list were defensive linemen John Faletoese (would be cooler if it was fellatio) and Gerald Washington, defensive back Kyle Ward, offensive lineman Joel Bell, and most surprisingly, LB Blake Costanzo.
Costanzo played in all 16 games last year and was considered by many to be a special teams standout. He also spent most of 2007 on the practice squad, and appeared in three games.
When reached for comment, Costanzo said, "THESE PRETZELS....ARE MAKING ME THIRSTY!!!!"
You read that right, folks! Buffalo's 1st round draft pick, Eric Wood, will be in NYC this Saturday to meet you. And no, it is not DGWUS pal and Wood look-a-like Mike Ludders. It is actually E-Wood himself!
The New York City Bills Backers have organized this event through McFadden's on 42nd St and 2nd Ave in Manhattan. They will be throwing a Buffalo appreciation blast all day and night, starting at 11 am with drink specials! Mr. Wood will be there between 5-7 to hopefully pound shots of Jager and threaten Jets fans with us! You can read the whole announcement here.
Come join Eric Wood, DGWUS contributor The Scizz, and NYCBBB for some wild times! And dear Lord, I hope Ludders shows up for the ultimate arm-wrestling showdown...
Hey Buffalo fans! We are really sorry for the lack of posts over the past week.
No really, we are.
We had some technical issues with the site. Then over the past couple of days, all three of us have been extremely busy with our real world jobs. However, stayed tuned for an update a little later tonight, as well as some posts from yours truly tomorrow, and a BRAND NEW High Character Friday from the Scizzette.
