In the second part of my interview with Larry Pfohl, the real man behind pro wrestler Lex Luger, explores some of the darker parts of his life. In advance of Sunday's WrestleMania 33, Pfohl talks about the 2003 overdose death of Elizabeth Hulette at his Georgia townhouse and how he cowered in shame from the pro-wrestling community because Miss Elizabeth was so beloved, …

When The Buffalo News and Sports Radio 1270 The Fan offered a chance to have a show, my main objective was to have some fun. Perhaps we presented an unorthodox sports-talk topic Wednesday, but it was not boring. WrestleMania 33 happens Sunday in Orlando, so talk about pro wrestling we did. We were joined by Williamsville's Lex Luger and Canisius College alum Beth Pho…

Ritchie Campbell might be the greatest prep basketball player in Western New York history. I'm aware Christian Laettner, Cliff Robinson and Paul Harris also are from here, but Campbell held the WNY scoring record for 27 years. His 2,355 points for DeSales and Burgard were finally surpassed this winter by Dominick Welch, whose career at Cheektowaga began when he was in e…

In trying to answer the headline's question Wednesday on "The Tim Graham Show," we examined one of the biggest clues to what Donald Trump would look like as Buffalo Bills owner: his controversial USFL legacy. Trump owned the USFL's New Jersey Generals, but was the key figure behind the spring league's $1.7 billion antitrust lawsuit against the NFL. The lawsuit, propelle…

Donald Trump could have owned the Buffalo Bills. Imagine how much different the world would be. We did exactly that for two hours on "The Tim Graham Show" this week at Sports Radio 1270 The Fan. You can listen to the second part of the two-hour show, including interviews with Susan Milligan of U.S. News & World Report and local Trump compatriot Carl Paladino, …

What if Donald Trump bought the Buffalo Bills? He tried in 2014, long before anyone thought he would be in the Oval Office. Trump submitted one of the three nonbinding bids to buy the Bills after founder Ralph Wilson died. Terry and Kim Pegula's staggering $1.4 billion offer pulverized the field. Jon Bon Jovi's group, which included his Toronto backers, couldn't comp…

Eric Byrnes spent 11 years in the majors and is an analyst for MLB Network. He was a stellar outfielder, became only the 11th player to hit at least 20 home runs and steal at least 50 bases in a season, batted .409 against Greg Maddux and hit for the cycle. So he joined "The Tim Graham Show" on Wednesday to talk about the Buffalo Bills. Natch. Byrnes is the subjec…

The NFL isn't merely punishing Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly by excluding him from the NFL scouting combine. The league also is hurting the clubs who want to find out whether they should invest a draft pick in the talented-but-checkered St. Joe's alum. Kelly has had his problems along the way. Clemson dumped him. He was arrested downtown for getting into a barroom …

Chad Kelly's representatives are still seeking answers why the Ole Miss quarterback was not on the NFL's list of scouting combine participants Wednesday. Duray Oubre and Vance McAllister of JPS Sports Management joined "The Tim Graham Show" on Sports Radio 1270 The Fan to explain Kelly's combine status. McAllister claimed Kelly received from the NFL a combine invitat…

In his first interview since being denied, legendary receiver Terrell Owens told "The Tim Graham Show" on Wednesday he resents the voting process that so far has blocked him from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Owens ranks second all-time in receiving yards, eighth in receptions and third in receiving touchdowns. He has gained more yards than Eric Dickerson and scored mo…
