Anthony plane, but we believe that it's a Ronald Blue Jays would not become wards of Major League baseball when it comes out having any home games. But for those who don't know about your stadium where they're going to play What can this state and really do, even though it's a minor league field, but a major league team's about to play on it. Well, guys, thanks for having me on and it's Ah, it's a thrilled to be hosting the Blue Jays. That's assailant field, and you know everybody in Buffalo kind of nose and in the minor league baseball circuit that Our ballpark in is the biggest and minor league baseball seating capacity wise. Back 1988. It was built to become a major league ballpark and You know, thanks to a kind of that ability, you know, we we've got the space and the infrastructure to do the best we can, and probably best that any minor league team to be ready for a major team coming in to take care of them. What kind of changes to the specs of that yard have to be made, if any, to be able to host a major league baseball game. Yeah. I mean, there's there's certainly Ah, few things overcome here in a short period of time, But you know, we're confident we can do it. But you know, some of the things lighting has been has been talked about. As ah, major obstacle, but we feel we're going to be able to do that with some plans. We're gonna have some portable lights brought in and ever bulbs changed out. As well to sew. The TV games will be have no problem saying in the game and you know, a little bit of the clubhouse is well, it's you've seen, you know, with the social distancing Fenway model. Everybody's kind of calling it. And having teams in the suites were considering that looking at all the different avenues in the ballpark where weaken socially distance players and him a good home. Keep him safe, but also give him a nice place. To be inside of ballpark alone will be certainly a little unique. But you know, it's a majorly style ballpark. It's our facilities. Fantastic, the actual game on the field. I won't miss a beat will be ready. Anthony spread that you know, the Buffalo Bison's Their home field is going to be the home for the Toronto Bluejays in Major league baseball. This 2020 joining Freddie Coleman and if it's Simmons on Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN radio. I'm glad you mentioned exactly that. It's a pretty neat thing to have this.

For the city of Buffalo having it's around a Blue Jays, calling that city their home for 2020 I mean, it's it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. I think for all of us so we can come forward on this and host Ah Major league team here. I mean, we're the support we're getting from our local politicians. Byron Brown has been fantastic. Governor Cuomo has been a huge help in this old saying, Mark pulling cars are your county executive has Has really helped us. They've come and said Look any help you guys need We're here. We're helpful. Every one of our partners through this Even before we knew that they were coming. Everyone is excited about this. How can we help you help? What can we dio? You know, Buffalo, the city of good neighbors, and it is truly going toe. We're gonna show that everybody everyone's gonna pitch in.

We're going to be ready and it's going to be really put Buffalo on the national map on the international map, too, because you know the J's are Canadians, the country's team. And I think everybody not just in buffalo, but in New York state is goingto see what What? Buffalo Khun D'oh. Anthony, What has this been like for you personally, You haven't been the GM there very long. You've been in the organisation for. I think close to two decades if I'm not mistaken, but you haven't been a GM very long. What is this? Hold? This is the last 4.5 months been like for you personally. You know, you have been with the bisons for a long time. Um, but yeah, only was ah named G. M a few days before everything shut down. Due to the pandemic, so I probably you know, in a few years, I'll realize how crazy this was. But it's just been one crazy step after another that every change everyday every week has felt like a year in a time capsule pretty much that I can't even really read my head around. What's what's been going on. And, um, you know, I've had so many different moving targets from you know, the starting our season to the PBA agreement was Major League baseball, Tio. Mark seasons canceled and the Jays they're gonna come. They're not going to come. They're going to play in Toronto. There, not going. I mean, they had so many twists and turns that it's hard to keep track of, Um And I probably don't realize how crazy it really has been until I go through a normal season GM but it has been AH, It's really been a whirlwind of emotions. And you know, I'm kind of left now with just Ah, whole lot of excitement that that we're going to get those that Toronto bluejays. Anthony sprayed the June that Buffalo Bison's

Blue Jays to play majority of 2020 home games in NY
"Joining us now on the West, her hotline, bluejays broadcaster and former Bisons broadcaster Ben Wagner. Been great to talk to you again. How's life? Life feels pretty weird in the last five or six hours when it all finally came crashing down with the decision. You thought your outing Yeah. Yeah, He's one of my buddies. One of my buddies. Actually, that worked in the internationally texted me right away. And he said, you know, the greatest joke would have been if this would have happened your first year. The blue case broadcaster. Yeah. Yeah, but I mean, this happened, They had to have a spot. You need to have a spot to put your home games. You can't be nomadic. I think that Not only less than ideal, that's irresponsible in many different ways to so it's it's good that the dust is going to finally settle on this thing. Yeah, We certainly can appreciate them them trying to kill the club trying to find a major league home. You know, there's a certain level of comfort and just facilities out of necessity. That guys are used to. So look, I get that, do you? Do you have any idea at this point, Ben, if if players will be like begrudgingly The downtrodden about having to play in Buffalo are or do you think it'll be that they'll be happy to actually have a home? I think they're going to be happy to have a home first and foremost and a big concern from a player perspective early in conversations and I'm going back to April about launching into a season was time spent away from friends and family and that support network. Same thing came up with the Blue Jays when they had their three week approval here in Toronto to have summer camp. They were really concerned about extending, and in fact that the border wasn't open. There was a lot of concern that they would go three months without seeing Wives and girlfriends and kids and what have you outside the travel, So there is a definite comfort? Uh, everybody that I have talked to within the organization in the last A day or two, said they're trying to adjust every bit of persons negativity to positivity because listen This is going to be a season unlike any other and if you're not on board with this, your life is going to be miserable, let alone just trying to survive through a pandemic could get through sports season and look at the roster like These guys know where to grab their coffee. They know the hot spots. Late at night after a ball game where they can grab a bite to eat when they're staying in downtown Buffalo, because the overwhelming majority of this roster has already come through buffalo in a large capacity, so There's gonna be a lot of comforts just operated normal day, let alone the comforts of going to a ball park in things of the routine that you expect, and, you know, I think this is not getting played up enough when we're talking about Major League baseball. And a Blue Day specifically using sailing field. Major League baseball as we know it right now is not major league baseball that the players I have known it. Every bit of this facility. Whether you're in Boston or Atlanta or DAO in Buffalo has changed. You can't get into normal clubhouses. The The training rooms are not set up as normal because of the protocols of social distancing. So to use that as the main excuse, I think isn't trying very hard. You're just looking for negativity. When you talk to the players of the people, you know, they say Buffalo isn't good enough because all right, well, that means every major league facility isn't good enough right now, because they've all been forced to do things that are not in the ordinary.

Canada said no to the Blue Jays, playing in Toronto too much it took the the federal government actually write, write, write too much cross border travel. You know, like, and maybe this is a question for Michael. Does it seem duplicitous that the NHL is in Toronto, but that Blue Jays can't be. I think I get it, though. Maybe I'm missing an obvious point. But in terms of hockey, they're all there and they're not going anywhere. Right, and the Blue Jays would be coming back and forth across the border all the time and so with their opponents So now what? And the Toronto Star had an article about I think at one point they might have said that Buffalo was going to happen. And then it was couched some Dunedin. I know I saw one headline that it was like they're going to Buffalo. But, yeah, they're not at least not officially and all. It seems like everything I've read since then. Oh, Saturday afternoon is that the Bisons facility is just not good enough. For this now. It'll come down to what there are. Other options are And maybe we'll end up having to be good enough. Lighting in the clubhouse and everything, but it seems that at least of at least right now, and we'll talk to Mike. Maybe this will change today, but it's up in the air.

"buffalo" Discussed on 31 Thoughts: The Podcast
"Chris Taylor. On an extension for him. because. They were really happy with the job he did there. They were working. Like I think that there's other coaches there who have either some. I don't know if they're extensions or options. There are working on those like an agent told me that they were working on contracts for some of their H. L. Guys, even some of their NHL guys because they have time then this morning, all of a sudden. They're like it's over like until this morning Jason. Botterill was going at about like he had the job so I would say the. The answer, your question is probably yes. Jeff but I don't know that sure. How would you characterize the last three years? The Buffalo sabres under the bottle I mean I don't I. Don't know that three years really is enough to evaluate a general manager to be honest, but that's all we have. How are you going to look back at what we just saw in these last three years from bottle? I think the answer is incomplete. Again like I said some of the things that they did. Was! Directed at them from ownership, but other things you've got to take the heat for, and honestly we're probably not gonNA. Know for another three years. If bottle did a good job or not, I mean look the. And when you win in this business, that's what happens. But to be honest, I don't look at it and say I really feel we have a full. Fare picture of what he did, do you? Know. I think. I made this point a couple of different times on the podcast this season. This is a team that I would characterize as in reflection. They're trying to figure out what they have in Casey Mental Stat. Can he be a number to center behind Jackal? I? Don't know They're trying to figure out what they have in taste, Thomson, can he be an NHL? Player part of the Rhino. Rally trade we. We don't know we know about Jack Michael. He was there of course previous Jason, botterill but we know that Rosina's. Darlene is going to be an excellent defense for a long time. in the NHL. We suspect think Yoko Harju for new land. Deal could turn out to be really good for them. I think it already has no I. Think we set it at the minute was done. This looks like a win. For the for the Buffalo Sabres but I'll I'll look at Buffalo, and you made this point earlier on this season, and maybe even last season on the podcast as well. What's the first thing that Joel Quenneville always asks before he takes a new head coaching job. WHO's a goalie? and. That's the one thing that buffalo never had. I liked Carter Hutton a lot. I liked Carter. Hutton I like Lena's ullmark. I'm GonNa really like Logan who goaltender of the future there, but they don't have the goalie, and when you're a team that's in reflection. When you're a building team man, a good goaltender can erase a lot of mistakes and extend people's careers to me. This is going to be once again. The lesson of shore up your goal tending I before anything else. Well you know Carter Hutton. It's interesting. He didn't landless Hausky. Did an article recently were hot and talked about I guess some semi surgery had done You know I hope it works out for them because I, like it. I liked Carter Hutton a lot too great story. Great Story, but. I. Don't know it so weird to me because I thought I thought it was going to be another year for him and it just. Like I, want the Sabers Duale because I think their fans deserve it, you're you should be rewarded for being that. Good a fan base once in a while right and if you're sabres fans, you're sitting here today and you're going. Why are we so invested in this and it's not good. What do you think happens with the roster now? Again this is a rookie general manager. We don't know much about how atoms is going to work in this capacity other than it's going to be in conjunction with the pagodas you've talked plenty about managing upwards. more than were, and how important that is for general manager today's NHL. If you're a member of the Buffalo Sabres a player, I mean how you feeling right now. You're thinking you're going again. Now the one thing is I like I think the players like Gruber. I think they do. Jack certainly does Jack Legal certainly does Krueger said today? I'm the coach I think he was wondering. If you know we were all GonNa, 'cause we've talked about how the word was. His influence was growing. And he said. Signed on here as the head coach of the Buffalo Sabres and I'm very proud to continue. There's a lot of emotions attached with the decisions that were made today, but all that matters now is the actions that we take moving forward, and my actions will continue to be as the head coach. Kevin already mentioned it. Our relationship developed extremely organically. But I have to think his opinions going to matter here, so the players probably look at that and say okay, but I think that there's gotta be a certain amount of this again. This again, the story continues. There is no savior coming right now. no one on the horizon that's going to turn the buffalo sabres fortunes around which is why it'll be fascinating to watch the off season whenever that happens to see what Kevin Adams new general manager. The Buffalo Sabres does Taro. Suture Modo. Where are you now for joining us on another edition of thirty one thoughts the podcast?.

"Asap Pay Villa Laino pay. Christian Air Hof pay whomever. The Buffalo. SABRES are open for business I. Think you've gotTA wonder about it. Right again. They were asked as the drive. This is me you don't believe in the draft anymore and teargas own a. we still believe in the draft. That is the cornerstone of the growth of many sports franchise is. Draft well. And develop your young players, and we're still one hundred percent on that track which you have to, but got a lot of CAPRA vailable. They do have a lot of our as but they've got a lot of cap room available. We'll see. All the. They're not gonNA play. For nine months while nine months since they last played, but they're not gonNA play probably until January now they've got time, but whatever the pitch was, they didn't like it. They did not like it and I think it was also. Nation of the pitch and I think you know whatever changes organizationally. They were kind of told to make Kevin Adams. He went on a road trip late. In the regular season. He travel with the team that raised eyebrows. I mean this person has sent me. That quote couldn't have been the only guy aside. People saw the writing on the wall and I think we're just surprised that it came this quickly. Pretty sure that was the DADS trip as well I think so, that Adams remember getting attacks. At that time, saying an interesting development, the reason I. Ask about you know. Is this the buffalo sabres looking to load up in free agency like they did in the early Gula years was Kim Populus quote today, which is, we don't think this is a rebuild. So on the one hand they're tearing things down. You Know Rochester. Bom New General Manager, scouting staff. There's a lot of tearing down, but in their mind. Here's Kimba. Gula, saying, we're not rebuilding here. It sounds to me like this is going to be restock and the restocking now. With general manager, that doesn't have any NHL experience as you pointed out early on. He is very much, and has been in the orbit of the is for ten years or so so he is well known to the team have terrible Gula, saying not only we had too many differences of opinion with Jason Botterill but also saying we felt we weren't being heard this very much sounds to me like. This is going to be pagodas with a couple of hands on the steering wheel here. They will be making the decisions from now on. Thank you very much. Would that be fair? Well, I! Think they always have I think yes, but I think they always have like I remember when Darcy regear took over, or or they took over under Darcy regeer. One of the things that I know revere felt was that there was a lot more interference from ownership then he used to. When he was hired, the sabers were like a model organization, and they said the general manager runs the team, and we trust you to run the team. And sometimes it worked sometimes didn't like most organizations do, but I know. He felt that the pagodas were incredibly involved more so than he was used to, and I think that's different now like back then what? We're organizations worth not what they're worth like now and you better expect interference. Your owner is going to be involved, but I definitely think the pool is are going to have a big say, but the other thing I'm sitting here. I was talking about this today with someone. You've got to add. Like even if you WANNA go to video scouting which they might WanNa. Do you have to have people and you have to have? Just some smart people people that might not want the spotlight like someone said to me today, the two guys that would make a lot of sense for buffalo right now who liked to work and have ties to the organization and don't need attention. Our Guys Lake Rick deadly. And Scott loose now. Both of those guys working for other organizations Dudley works for Carolina and loose works for Vegas. But you know daily, obviously as a huge tie into Buffalo, and Scott Loses Dad obviously is a big tide of buffalo and he's got a tie. They're like these guys that you probably want to bring in because they love to find players, and they do a good job of finding players. In that's what you have to do especially. Draft. Eligible players and I think that you're going to have to add whether you like it or not. You're going to have to add some bodies there because I think asking Ralph Krueger as a coach and Kevin Adams as a GM to do all of this. It's way too much, so you've got to add somebody and I and I hope they're smart about it or else. They're not gonNA. It's not gonNA. GET BETTER! I can understand people wanting to thin down the heard a little bit, but you've got to be reasonable. You know I mean you have to spend money on finding players, especially those hidden gems and I think it's a big mistake. If they just say you know what it hasn't worked, so we're getting it I. Don't get that you know I wonder considering there's a thing called the planes now and we'll see if we get our fingers crossed, the NHL can pull this off and get the game back on ice, but Buffalo Sabres have take two els and turn them into WS. Are we having this exact same conversation? Does this organization go through all of this? If, they're in the plans in the twenty four team universe. It's a great question I mean like like I'll tell you like someone told me that..

"Pushed against them I think that some of those decisions may have been the ones we saw today changes in some of their coaching and scouting staff and their assistant general managers I think he pushed against them, but also I believe that whatever bottles plan wise in terms of pushing forward with the team in the budget. They didn't agree with it either, and that's kind of where we are, and you know the one thing I will say this laudable saying that the goals are losing a fortune, and they're making the changes because they're running out of money or whatever. Look if you look at their stock price, they're getting hammered. There's no question about it. But what someone said to me is everywhere in sports is about to make these changes that owners are getting hammered just like every business owner out there is getting hammered by the Corona Virus says contracts or abode to change an hockey and every sport. There's going to be less term. There's going to be pandemic wording in these contracts and in the states. You'll know more what this is in Canada. You're going to become an at will employee, which is going to make it easier for them to terminate you and also maybe for you to get out of a contract to. The getting hammered for their finances here, this person said to me and this is a different person when I was. referencing earlier more NHL teams that he wouldn't be surprised that New Jersey which is about to do, some hiring also looks at it this way to a leaner staff with more favourable contract, wording the ownership. Okay you started that answer off talking about something happening in the three weeks since Kim Gula said. Bottles are guy were coming back with with Jason Botterill Can I. Put forward suggestion. Sure that something was jackal. And that's something was a quote by Jaco on his exit, saying he's frustrated. And if you read between the lines, you can tell, but he's an elite level player He's watching Connor Magee peer-group same draft Gordon. The playoffs collect individual trophies, etc, and he's going back. Home in the spring was Jack. The something that happened in the three weeks. You know I think it's impossible not to hear what he's saying, but again I think that people have heard Eichel say this before. It's not like it's a secret, you know. The one thing is remember year ago when Edmonds and had another change. You know people said to me Connor mcdavid. Is he ever going to ask for trade? And you know I, said Radio Edmonds and last year that I thought the oilers had two years to sort this out. And, then they had to worry that maybe mcdavid would get fed up. I don't know how much time buffalo has. They're like now year later. Connor mcdavid feels completely different the oilers. Look like a much better team and I'm sure that he's much happier now. Because that's all he wants to do is win. I really think that the sabers do have to be looking at this and wondering. I don't know that I. Don't I'm not saying jackals gone to them and said I wanna be traded, but you have to be worried about the possibility of it. and. The one thing here, too, and you cannot blame a roll like the contract is going to turn out to be a great deal for the Sabers I. Think the skinner one. That's a much bigger question. I don't think Jason. Wanted to give Jack Eichel that contract and ownership said we're doing it and I don't think that Jason. botterill wanted to give jeff skinner. That deal I think what bottle wanted to do was offer big money for a low term Jason from what I heard is not a term guy. He says, too. Many teams get burned by those mistakes and I. Think he was overruled but I think what they're looking at right here is. There's a finite amount of time here before I says I've had enough, and I do think that is on the mind of the sabers organization. So then do we see the Buffalo? Sabres behave as if this is the first few weeks of Terry Pergola buying the Buffalo sabres which is go by me free agents. We need to audition for Jack here we need to. To Show Jack Eichel There were serious and committed to making the playoffs..

"Welcome one the PODCAST, just a quick shift edition hear the news of the day while it began early, and it was the dismissal of Jason Botterill. As general manager of the Buffalo Sabres, Kevin. Adams takes over, but then Elliott. After the press conference with Kim, Gula Terry Pergola and the new general manager, more dominoes fell as we record this podcast six, zero, three eastern on a Tuesday night. What is the very latest well? The very latest is that in addition to what you mentioned they did were Jason Botterill was? Let go and Assistance Randy. Sexton Steve Greeley the let go of Chris Taylor who was the head coach of their. Their American hockey, League team in Rochester team done really well the past couple of years and his staff and also let go was Ryan Jankowski, the director of Amateur Scouting, and what I'm told a good chunk of their scouting department, so I think we're still trying to figure out. Where is all going to land? But this is a massive massive bloodletting of the Buffalo Sabres. Give us some context here for maybe perhaps new hockey fans that haven't seen something like this. This is not just the NHL team. This goes deeper and this goes into different departments How many times if ever have you seen it? Go this deep. The the last one I can really remember where it went like. This was Toronto when they fired Dave known as they took out a chunk of his scouting staff to. That was a big one. There were major changes and eventually it led to. Lula. Morello Kyle Dubious Anderson and Mike Babcock by I. Mean this one today in terms of seismic is it is maybe it's because there's just nothing much going on, but it seems worse. We're going to get to the timing here in a couple of seconds, but this is one at a at a lot of different levels for the Buffalo Sabres. What does this indicate to you given that and we'll get? Get there I swear because it still the news of the day given that they've gone with an inexperienced general manager, and this is Kevin Adams first job. Last year we saw out of the box higher with Ralph Krueger behind the bench What do we expect now we've seen departments gutted ranging cow's head of scouting gone. You mentioned Chris Taylor his staff as well in Rochester. What do we expect now? Boy, that's A. that's a great question I. Don't know if I really know the answer luck, let's go back to the beginning. Let's try to see where we are here, so don't when the pandemic came in buffalo made. They were really ripped for the way they handled the portfolios the way they handled the changes laying people off, and even some people came out of the woodwork Larry Quinn who was the former president. He was very critical of the changes that were made some of them the Knox family that founded. The organization one of the children of the parents, the Seymour northern that founded the team was critical like it was a big deal and Tim Graham from the athletic, didn't interview with Kim Gula, and wrote a story about it, and someone sent me a quote from one of the stories, and it's from Kimbe Dula, and it said we fully admit we put trust and some of the wrong people and made decisions based on information that was given to us by them. It's our fault. We put too much faith in certain people. We allowed them more leeway than clearly they deserved. And someone said to me you watch that quote. They are going to make changes in hockey now. One of the things about the gulags is. They've let go of people with term Tim. Murray was fired a year after getting an extension, and he's on the payroll to the end of June. Rex Ryan on the football side was a guy was fired with term left, and when Jason Botterill got a vote of confidence from Cuba Gula herself to the Associated Press three weeks ago now he had two years left on his deal I thought in most other people thought he'd get another year, but someone again warn me. ME. As the person who sent me that growth that said his leash short. They feel that quote unquote. Keep people have let them down and they are gonNA go outside of typical hockey. People they are eases. You Mark my words. They're going to do it. And Kevin Adams hiring to the business side of the organization was seen as that, and now you look at it. The four top hockey people are Kim and Teri Gula there Ralph Krueger, who certainly is A. A hockey pedigree, but not much in terms of the NHL and Kevin, Adams, who's worked for the family for ten years, although obviously, he was a player and a former first round draft. Pick and Stanley Cup champion and this person texted me this afternoon, and they said Look I. I know you're busy. I'm not going to call you, but this is what this is about that. They feel that the hockey people they've been told about haven't worked and they are going the. The exact opposite direction. Yes, these people may have some pedigree in the sport, but they're not NHL people, and that's what this is a boat from the pagodas he said would I be off base than if I suggested that this is a move that indicates further to the comment that they feel duped by people in and around the NHL, and now they are retreating inside a Gula bubble I think that's very fair like they said today, there was no search. We had Kevin in mind very recently only because we know him over nine years. he has handled very admirably. Any job with given him loyal communicative, and we just feel that it's it's a better place for us to be. With? His GM. Actually just to add to that thing, terry touchdown earlier that the other gems that we. Had hired are was here before. We. We interviewed them. You call around but until you get to the day to day, and sometimes it takes years right to understand a where their ad in in what common ground that you guys that you find together with an you know it's. It's been a long process not I. Mean yes, not in the GM role, but certainly as a person and I think this is why we think that you know this is a little bit different This is change from maybe how we normally are lot of other crops normally higher. GM's this was somebody that has been part of our organizations in multiple roles. And that we've you know we've. Come to to know and respect. I think that that makes a difference this time around. The made their surge? They got their coach last year and they've known Kevin Adams for a long time, and these are the people that are GonNa make their decisions They feel that they know them and they trust them now. The one thing that is unusual here is it's very clear. Something happened in the last three weeks because Kim. Gula when asked about quote, said it was our intent key role, but there were too many differences of opinion and Terry. Padilla said we felt that we were not being heard. Now I understand. There was a review an independent review of the organization Dine over the winter. And whatever those recommendations were I think Jason..

We we stood in some very Some very Homegrown bars I would say like this. Is Alice Living Room? When you're standing here with everybody else drinking a beer beer watching people. I have several videos on my phone. If people like dancing also doing it in the morning doing invisible jump rope like do you remember that they were there was like invisible jump? Broken people kept jumping in and they were like encouraging each other. He was a lot of control We were like we're not drug benefit. Yeah it's eleven in the morning We saw the parade.

Yeah and they just wrote their name on the front of the truck and then like people stood in the you know in the cavs Rock Candy Candy and they were throwing candy into the streets and it had been snowing slash freezing raining at us all day long so the gutters were wet but they were still throwing candy and it would land in the gutter and children would still ramble after it and rap handy and gutters and it was and we were like. That's not going to be done but there was a composer Chopin. There was chopin. There's a guy. Dresses Chopin his anthropomorphized peon. He had an anthropomorphic piano. And then there was the Polish clown who was horrifying. Remember the Polish clown. Don't I think a block them out? Locked it out picture on my phone. That comes up every so often like. Here's a memories from twenty and yeah it was just like a really terrible day at one point like the wind was blowing into our faces like shooting needles advice into our eyes. And you look to me and you went. What as we walked by a dead rat side. There's no other humans on the street. It was terrible but it was also superfund. Never go out of those memories. Yeah we'll always have those memories because we're never doing it again but yet ding ding us. Day is celebrated in Masset in New York Cleveland. Ohio South Bend Indiana and Pasadena California. Little pockets of Polish groups. Anyway dingus day basically. It's like it's always celebrated after Easter Sunday Easter Monday. They do like a processional thing. They'd like March around the church. Boys Dunk Girls in water to like bring about the the springtime or like have a good harvest like traditionally so it ends up being like people like scored. Each other was squirt. Guns basically is like a holy water thing and Pussy willows you beat each other with pussy willows and then the girls give the boys a fish. And that's all I know about Lauren. I explain this. I thought she was doing like a like a Improv Sketch Whitney. You thought I was jacking. You wasn't dragging. It's a real thing and you witnessed it yet. We bought some pussy willows. We did and then we gave away those pussy willows and we felt good about ourselves. We Got. We did everything we wanted to do. We ate a Perogie. We ate some critique we saw the parade and we bought some pussy willows and we went to a Polish bar. All that needed to be done are. Let's talk about the voice. Let's talk about the Buffalo Slang K. You have just some terminology. There's the north towns in the south towns. He's from the North towns. He's from Williamsville from south towns from Lackawanna. You know that kind of thing. A True Buffalo. Nghien will put an article in front of a highway. So what highway would you take to get to Work Julia? I guess I would take. I could take four ninety five. Oh see I would say the four. So it's the ninety the Kensington Expressway. This is how you can tell the born and breads from the transplants also. Buffalo Indians are the only ones who can pronounce Kadjic Woulda the skipjack would expressway that runs along the shore of Niger. River the chip strip. Which is the church. The Chippewa runs west to east between Delaware elmwood. And that's where all the bars are and bars in. Buffalo historically are open till four. Am So Witching hour the witching hour yes also as I mentioned before us or US guys. That's a buffalo thing for sure western New York thing saying US instead of Y'all or all of you use US guys. Also Jenny or Jennie. Screamers Jenny screamers genesee cream Ale And they're called Genie screamers because of their laxative. It's laxative property. I didn't know that I thought it was just like a play on words of cream but now they're called Genie screamers. Also carbonated beverages in Buffalo are called pop not soda. The most the way to tell that someone is from buffalo is by letting them say this phrase. Are you ready Franken? Joanne ran down transit from Amherst to Lancaster. Can you hear it? I'm GonNa do especially after a hard see. Yeah is when you found the most. Yeah Buffalo's best known for the flat a sound and the dental which is like disc there so the accident lightly Chicago and depending on whether you're Italian or Polish tends to shift a little so for example a buffalo Polish person might say something like this. Gordy you do but you have to hook up the fire hose before you open the hydrant dare. She's covering her face and Italian. You're ready for this. Jesus Antonin Novus put frigate anchovies on this pizza fondue holes there's an acronym Holy Mackerel also. So you'll hear my dance ate a lot. I was telling Steve About this and he was just doing an impression of your father. I was like no. You think it's dead but it's not. It's all of Buffalo. So by is dismissive noise. Like a like get outta here so it's usually accompanied by a hand wave like you're pushing someone out of the way you don't know nothing so this accident technically called. Buffalo English so she wanted to call. Yeah and it's widely known by linguists. As the northern lakes accent and variations are heard as far west as Chicago and only as far east to Syracuse. So it's called Northern Lakes. It is probably the least attractive. American accent you can possibly get you know like no French person is like all island to. Here's Buffalo English accent is so beautiful like no one. No one wants this. So every Slovenia calendar is a word. That is your word. That's the trigger where calendar Anyway Anthony. I have a CO worker named Anthony. Who DOES NOT WANNA be called Tony which I can respect? But because he seems to me and he's not he's Irish but he seems to me like like a house you know like he's my so every time I see him like me and he hasn't.

And this was during the famed marv Levy Jim Kelly era people were like people still revere they talk about it like he's a saint mark. Saint Marv also a fun little tidbit during the run of X. FILES. There was a throwaway line from the smoking. Man Who has seemed to have orchestrated everything from the Rodney King. Trial to the miracle on Ice Hockey match to the Oscars. He says quote what I don't want to see is the bills winning the Super Bowl as long as I'm alive that doesn't happen. Which is Great? Like there's like a little kind of through line that he for some reason and is not explained that he hates the buffalo bills. The sabers established in one thousand nine hundred ninety played in the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium Until Nineteen ninety-six when Marine Midland arena. Now key bank center opened the team plays in the Atlantic Division of the NHL and the team has won one presidents trophy and three Prince of Wales Trophies which are conference championships said President's trophies the highest points in a season yeah so that was two thousand six two thousand seven during their like real peak-time. I remember that that was your however. Unlike the bills the sabers do not have a league championship having lost the nineteen seventy five Stanley Cup to the Philadelphia Flyers and the nineteen ninety nine Stanley Cup to the Dallas Stars. I remember the ninety nine. Oh I wasn't alive for the other one but we yeah. The first one that they that they lost in that was right when they had the French connection. So I think those were that was like seventy two to seventy nine That was center as Ewbal Perot and left winger Rick Mark Ten or Rick Martin or Rick Martin. Maybe if your friend she's Martin and then right wing was Rennie rubare. Yes so and the seventies were again the buffalo neans revere it there's like the seventies sabres was a big deal. Yeah that was also Tim. Horton played for the sabres around that time. It wasn't very good no no. He's made a lasting impression. He died tragically and started a line of shots drugs when he ran his car. One single car crash but you know people seem to like as his awfully a Tim. Hortons is big around here just as an FYI.

Investor in Buffalo's revitalization efforts and many buffalo neons including my father revere Pohjola as the only person keeping both franchises in Buffalo. Because every year when this when the season ends and the sabers did terribly or the bills did terribly or failed to win something or whatever. There's always a rumor that goes around. That's like that's it. They're moving the bills to Canada. That's what's happening. There's more money up there. They're going to do it or they're moving day on them. I don't know I don't know if Canada wants them. I mean there's plenty of bills fans in Canada. I mean they'd drive over the border all the time two games so I don't know I don't know how realistic it is. But there was a lot of times you hear people in bars. That are like yeah. They're leaving the next five years. There's no way to keep the bills here. It's a shame.

That was in ninety. Two Ninety three ninety six and two thousand eight. My uncle went to abandon its Championship game when they won.

I have a terrible story from my mother about the H H. Richardson Alex so I actually called her. They're on their way to Florida and I called her. I was like can I tell the story on the podcast? She was like yes. If you get the the mess it up to get the story straight so when my mother was working in at three east at the hospital she had a patient who was going in for pre up and the patient said to my mom. Now it's in my chart and everything that I cannot be alone okay. You cannot leave me alone. I needed to have someone with me when I come out of the the operation.

Don't worry I'll we'll make sure that someone is with you no matter what if it's not me it's going to be somebody else but can I ask you what's what's wrong. Why do you need that? So apparently about five or six years prior to that. This woman was working on a project for radon testing at the H H. Richardson Complex. And this was when it was abandoned. It wasn't around so she was working with another guy her partner and they were doing radon testing in the basement and he was like all right. I'm going to get going. Do you mind and she was like. Oh Yeah I'm coming to. I'm right behind you. I just need to get whatever this thing. So he goes up the stairs to the top. And apparently there's like a little hang tag thing over the door that says like someone's in here. He forgot to put the hang tag up because he thought she was like literally right behind him. He leaves goes away. The hang tag thing has gone the security guards who were like there to like lock up and everything didn't see the hang tag locker in there and shut off the lights and this is a Friday so she on horses on a Friday so she she said it was so dark. She couldn't see your hand in front of her face. She was in like the full gear. Yeah the protective gear suit. And she said that they used to keep like the especially bad psych patients in the basement they would keep them chained to the wall and they would put on the floor and she said while she was in there she she would just curled up near the door and like banged on the door and screamed and yelled made as much noise as she possibly could. But there's no one around that complex. She was there all weekend. Oh she said she heard the chain scraping along the floor. She heard hey moving. She said she was never the same again. She didn't have no cell. Cell Service was like two thousand five. She didn't have any family. She lives alone. She had no family in the area and she was there all weekend and she said there's something that she was like. I was never somebody who believed in ghosts or anything like that. But after that she was like it changed my life forever so she was locked. It a line abandoned sake word in the basement in the basement for seventy two hours for seventy two hours with no food. No no lights. Nothing is that not the most horrifying thing you've ever heard so I'm telling you the story because I had heard it before. Yeah years ago but I wanted to get the story straight. I'm listening to them on the phone. Almost like she was like that has stayed with me my whole life. It is like that's such a terrible story. Pause my dad goes I believe I don't believe it. That's all I was like. Of course you don't know about you. I'm telling a story on the PODCAST. So now that the H H Richardson Complex is now Hotel Hotel. In which you can voluntarily stay for seventy two hours. You couldn't pay me enough. You couldn't pay anyb- I guarantee like locals.

Urban Renewal from the fifty s and seventy s gave way to the construction of the brutal style Buffalo City Court building and one Seneca Tower which is formerly the HSBC center. The city's tallest building my work in that when he was a banker. Your Dad was a banker. Oh my dad was a banker in the late seventies banker before he was a firefighter.

Just way all right. Let's talk about the snow. Let's I mean time about the snow. Yeah if okay flu people that deliver New York State. I didn't live in New York for many years and then when I moved to Rochester for my job. I didn't know anything about Rochester other than its nose a lot and I was right. Yup and I remember reading about the Golden Stonewall a word Yep Golden Snowball Award and so basically like my whole impression of of Buffalo Rochester. Syracuse was just. It's knows a lot. Yeah so you're not wrong. Buffalo has a reputation. For being the snowy right but Rochester's consistently the snow your city in the US from winter to winter with Syracuse. Not far behind. It's really obnoxious. I didn't know that stat. Oh yeah well I'll tell you why in a second so however when the circumstances are right which happens every so often. Buffalo gets absolutely so yeah socked in a major way and it's called Lake effect which is a phrase that strikes fear in the hearts of western New Yorkers all over the country effect so what happens is lake effect just as an. Fyi Cold Air comes down from Canada and it rushes across the lakes and what happens is if the lake is not frozen the cold air picks up all of this moisture from the lake and then dumps it boom right as close to wherever it is possible once it gets like full of moisture so if the circumstances are right where the air is dry enough and the way the lake is warm enough it will pick up a lot of moisture dump it boom immediately right on the shore which is Buffalo. There was It was probably about three or four years ago right before Thanksgiving That like people you know could tweet about it and stuff. They were taking pictures from skyscrapers in Buffalo of the impending snow up like that was called November. Yeah and I have a whole out. I didn't mean to jump at no. No please. We'll talk about it. So the reason why Rochester and Syracuse. Get more snow than buffalo is because different. Lake different lakes so the air comes across. Lake Erie is at the West and Lake Ontario the north so they're like the New York state that that like L. Part of New York state is like between those two lakes so when the cold air rushes across it picks up not only from Lake Erie but also Lake Ontario and it dumps it at the meeting point of that which tends to be Rochester Syracuse. It's it's like when they founded this place they must have came in May. Oh yeah they were like. This is a beautiful Liz. It's beautiful never leaving and then I don't know what happened later. But Yep exactly so. That is what happens most often. But you will hear. This is a phrase that you will only here in.

He was shot twice in the belly. An anarchist Leon jogos at the Temple of Music on September sixth. The president died eight days later on September fourteenth from gangrene caused by the bullet wounds a rough way to go. What's even worse is the newly developed x Ray Machine was displayed at the fair but doctors were reluctant to use it on McKinley to search for the bullets because they did not know what side effects it might have on him. Also the operating room. The exposition's emergency hospital did not have any electric lighting. Even though the exteriors of many of the buildings were covered with thousands of light bulbs. And if that's not a metaphor for the city I don't know what it is and also like the best doctor in the city wasn't there like Niagara Falls or something. Yeah exactly. Doctors used a pan to reflect sunlight onto the operating table as they treated mckinlay's wounds. That's how the whole thing like you're like a Roman. Yeah like like.

Its manufacturing base and major companies such as republic steel in Lackawanna Steel employed tens of thousands of Buffalo neons however. The city's importance declined in the later. Half the twentieth century for several reasons perhaps the most devastating being the opening of the Saint Lawrence seaway in nineteen fifty seven goods which had previously passed through buffalo could now bypass it using a series of canals and locks reaching the ocean via the Saint Lawrence River and another major toll was suburban migration which was a national trend at the time. People are moving out of the city into the suburbs Race riots rocked the city in nineteen sixty seven and the city which boasted over half a million people at its peak had seen its population declined by some fifty percent as industries.
