Things to do
The Buffalo Blizzard plays host to the Wichita Wings on Sunday at 7:05 p.m. in Marine Midland Arena.
With the Bills out of town and the Sabres off until facing the Devils in New Jersey on Monday, it's time to do something other than attending a sporting event. Mother Nature provided us more than enough snow to play in over the past several days. All of the alpine ski areas are ready for business, and public parks (at least those in the South Towns) are open for sledding and cross-country skiing.
Things to view
The Buffalo Bills need to avoid a stumble, such as they did last year, at Foxboro in a game against the New England Patriots on Sunday at 1 p.m. on Channel 4.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can wrap up a playoff berth when they face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4 p.m. on Channel 29. A loss today at 4 p.m. (Ch. 4) by the Detroit Lions against the Denver Broncos would put the Bucs on the verge of the NFC Central title. In other NFL games Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings visit the New York Giants at 1 p.m. on Channel 29 and the Washington Redskins play the crumbling 49ers in San Francisco at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
There are three college football games that serve as hors d'oeuvres for the bowl season that gets rolling with MAC champion Marshall vs. BYU in the Motor City Bowl on Monday at 1:30 p.m. on ESPN. Today's games are the Blue-Gray Classic at noon on Channel 7, the Aloha Bowl between Arizona State and Wake Forest at 3:30 p.m. on Channel 7 and the Oahu Bowl between Oregon State and Hawaii at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
The NBA gives us a couple of Christmas presents with the New York Knicks at the Indiana Pacers at 7 tonight followed by the San Antonio Spurs at the Los Angeles Lakes at 9:30 on Channel 2.
