[BN] Blitz newsletter: Kim Pegula making her mark in NFL ownership circles

Kim Pegula wields unprecedented power as co-owner and president of both the Buffalo Bills and Sabres. She is one of only two women in the NFL with full control of the day-to-day management of a team and the only current female president in the NHL.

On top of that, Pegula serves on three NFL ownership committees — Super Bowl and Major Events Advisory, Business Ventures and NFL Foundation.

"Three committee memberships put Pegula at the high end among ownership," veteran Bills beat reporter Vic Carucci writes. "Her primary motivation to be so involved at this level was enhancing her ability to develop a stronger understanding of the NFL and the process of building relationships with other team owners.

More from Vic Carucci's exclusive interview with Kim Pegula: On Russ Brandon's departure ... On stepping in as team president ... On NFL's new anthem policy ... On the difficult road to a new stadium.

Brian Moorman's PUNT Foundation merges with Children's Hospital: The former Bills punter believes merging his foundation for children with cancer with the Children’s Hospital foundation will give it greater fundraising ability to help more families, News features reporter Tim O'Shei writes.

Children's Hospital visit put things in perspective for Sean McDermott: "The smiles that are on the children's faces in there," the Bills coach told Jay Skurski. "It's incredible. It brightens my day. It gives me energy. We talk a lot in this building about juice, you know, and those kids down there have juice, even though you understand why maybe they wouldn't. But they give me a lot of juice, and I love it.” Watch video of the visit here.
