Whatever you do, ladies and gentlemen, don't let a member of the Buffalo Bills, current or former, drive you home.
At 1:42 am Thursday night, in Virginia Beach, VA, future Hall of Famer Bruce Smith was pulled over by a special DUI enforcement unit for speeding. Smith was driving somewhere between 55 (the legal limit) and 75 mph. If he had been going over 75, he would've also been charged with reckless driving.
According to police spokesman Jimmy Barnes (JIMMY Barnes ... I love that), Smith had a positive demeanor, but refused a breathalyzer test and therefore was taken into custody. He was released on bond a few hours later.
Illustrious Buffalo News contrarian Jerry Sullivan has an interesting column up in this weekend's Sports Edition. He says it's about time Edwards picks up the slack. As many of you may or may not know, I am a huge Sullivan supporter (one of three in the entire Buffalo News readership). I think Sullivan is correct, but it's still amazing to me that it's Trent's third year, and it's make or break time for him already. I mean, weren't we just freaking out about picking up an undersized, weak-armed, injury prone QB out of a garbage school with our 3rd round pick?!? Where have the years gone?!? We at DGWUS think Trent will pull through, given the weapons and the increased stoutness up front. Throw us a comment if you agree or disagree (we would put a poll up but we're not that well versed in the HTMLing yet).
Also, on a serious note, and to echo Scizz's comments, I am deeply sorrowed by the loss of former Bills quarterback Jack Kemp. Although the K-Gun Bills were glorious and entertaining, Jack Kemp brought championships and validity to a burgeoning NFL franchise. He also gave back to WNY for 9 consecutive terms in Congress after his successful career with the Bills. My thoughts are with the Kemp family, and here's hoping the Bills can honor his memory this year by winning a championship and firing Dick Jauron.
It may be 12:38 AM, and I may have been drinking since 1:30 pm, but I had to put this post up now. I just heard that former Buffalo Bills QB Jack Kemp has passed away.
It is a sad time, as Mr. Kemp was a true gentleman who did so much for not only the Buffalo Bills, but for the NFL, and for our entire country.
God bless you, Jack. If only we could find more men like you.
