Orlovsky goes rogue; Bills are coming due for Trump; Prime time for local butchers

Bills fans, as usual, found plenty of reasons to dislike the national broadcast of the team’s 41-7 “Monday Night Football” victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Analysts talked too much. ESPN continued to use a split screen showing a different game that Buffalo fans couldn’t care less about.

But the low point had to be a single comment made by analyst Dan Orlovsky during the garbage period when the game was so out of reach that major starters were resting.

Orlovsky’s crime: favoring the wrong dive.

When the conversation turned to chicken wings – as it often does at Bills games – the former quarterback-turned-analyst said, “I think blue cheese is disgusting. I love ranches.

That sound you heard was a collective gasp in bars and lounges across Western New York.

“How important is a victory for the Department of Justice?” Blitzer asked.

An event to be held Monday in the Albany area is a reminder that football is on the minds of many, but there are other sports competitions going on.

Texas Roadhouse butchers Ryan Flatley (Tonawanda) and Zac Townsend (Cheektowaga) are among the 15 people who will demonstrate their skills.

Hoping one of our local guys makes the cut.
