If This Had Been An Actual Emergency....

The only thing that could have saved the Bills on Monday Night around 9:45pm EST was the President recognizing what was about to happen to our beloved Bills and invoke the Emergency Broadcast System, so we wouldn't have to watch what was about to unfold. Living in Buffalo has hardened most of us here. We can pretty much take anything after Wide Right, No Goal, Home Run Throwback, the White Bronco, Thurman's missing helmet, the Dallas MNF meltdown, the Blizzard of '77 and the October Storm. We barely flinch when bad things happen. Actually, we know it's going to happen and brace for the worse. The Space Gal texted me from Vegas with the following "We knew it was going to happen." After going up 11 points with 5 minutes left I tweeted this. After the debacle, some friends and relatives sent their condolensces as if someone in the family just passed. But we march on here in the B-Lo and stick together no matter what. You won't find nicer people anywhere else in the world. They call it the City of Good Neighbors for a reason. We will show up 73,000 strong on Sunday and cheer the heck out of them. But, dang, it sure would be great to catch a break one of these days.....

On the racing front, we have a new TBA advertiser, the Meadowlands Survival Challenge, who will be sponsoring our Filly & Mare Turf division standings. As you know, I am a big fan of the Survivor challenges and had some fun with the Monmouth challenge this summer. The contest starts on October 1st, so be sure to enter and give it a shot and/or follow along as we try and improve on our top 100 finish.

The chief hizzoner of the NTRA has a welcome post up for the 15 TBA bloggers, including yours truly, on the NTRA homepage, 14 who will be covering each of the Breeders' Cup races and one covering the international invasion. Be sure to support the group by reading and commenting on the NTRA blogs, as we all will be stepping our game up as we head into the first weekend in November.

This is a test. This blog site is conducting a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. This is only a test.

I totally understand why he had to take the kick out of the endzone...he wasn't sure if he caught it on the one-yard-line and backed in OR maybe he just wanted to get the clock down under two minutes.

I just wish he had pulled off a wussy QB slide rather than trying to fight for an extra yard that didn't matter.

I didn't wager on the game but a friend of mine had the Pats in a Survivor pool. No doubt a few peeps got off lucky on that one.

Go Bills!

Anon: Thanks.

Keith: I, too, had no problem with Leodis taking it out of the endzone to try and burn another NE timeout. He could've went down after the initial hit, but you can't fault him for trying his best.

Looking forward to your WO Mile analysis, I'll be @ the Bills game, but will be checking in via Twitter...
