Here are five takeaways from the nine-and-a-half minute video: (Note: We can't share the video here for obvious reasons, but it's on Barstool's Twitter page if you're interested. It definitely qualifies as "not safe for work.") 1. If the Bills are serious about wanting t…

The Sabres will head from Pegulaville to Pegula Ice Arena for a preseason game against the Penguins on Sept. 19, squaring off against the defending Stanley Cup champions at the Penn State arena named for the Sabres' owner. The Sabres will be the home team in State College, Pa., leaving three games in Buffalo on the six-game preseason slate, which was announced Monday. …

Rob Ray never backed down from a fight on the ice, but that doesn't mean he hated his fellow combatants. That level of disgust was saved for other players, like new Sabres coach Phil Housley. "I detest Phil Housley," Ray told the News in a 2003 piece that chronicled his fight card and listed five players for whom Ray harbored "special feelings." "I still hate him.…

Former Bills coaches Rex and Rob Ryan have been enjoying the scene in Nashville during the Stanley Cup Final. But things got a little heated Sunday night. Videos posted on Twitter showed the Ryan twins getting involved in a scuffle with patrons at a Nashville bar.

Patriots tight end and Amherst native Rob Gronkowski is the star of a new music video released Wednesday by electronic dance music producer and DJ 3LAU that is par for the Gronkowski course. The good news first: All proceeds from streams and sales of the song, "On My Mind" featuring Yeah Boy, will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, 3LAU wrote in the …

Tre Boston and the Bills seemed like a good fit. The Bills need safety depth; Boston plays safety. The Bills need players who know coach Sean McDermott's defense; Boston spent the last three years with McDermott's Panthers. The Bills brought Boston in for a free agent visit earlier this month, but he ended up signing with the Los Angeles Chargers. Why didn't it work…

The way Brandon Beane sees it, he's 3 for 3 on personnel moves in the last week. The Bills general manager on Wednesday announced the hiring of Malik Boyd as the team's director of pro personnel, hiring him away from the Arizona Cardinals, where he had worked for the last 12 years. "He was my number one choice," Beane said in a statement. “The first guy I targeted…

Bills fans let out a collective sigh in March when Patriots owner Robert Kraft mentioned that all-world quarterback Tom Brady wants to play another 6 or 7 years. Brady turns 40 in August but follows a strict diet and remains in good health (and at the top of his game), which lends credence to the idea that he could play another several seasons. But Brady's wife, mode…

Sabres star Jack Eichel remains in action with Team USA at the IIHF World Championships, and his one-timer remains as fierce as ever. Eichel caught Slovakia's Julius Hudacek in the head with a one-timer from the top of the circle Sunday, and the shot was so hard that it broke Hudacek's helmet and knocked the mask off his head. Hudacek went down after taking the hi…

Blackhawks star and South Buffalo native Patrick Kane voluntarily traded seats with a soldier on a flight this week to allow the soldier to sit in first class, according to the flight attendant who said she coordinated the switch.

Chad Kelly had to sweat it out, but the St. Joe's grad and Ole Miss quarterback became a Denver Bronco Saturday when general manager John Elway selected him with the final pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Kelly spoke with the News' Tim Graham shortly after being named Mr. Irrelevant. They discussed the highs and lows of nearly being passed over, his grandfather leaving the d…
