Bad day in B-lo sport

Local fans were unusually optimistic yesterday. The Sabres had a good draft over the weekend, bought out both of their big-money long-term veterans to save them from future cap risks, and, yesterday, got several free agents to agree to come here. Meanwhile, the Bills finished minicamp in June, with much promise for returning last year's much-improved defense. Best of all, none of their players suffered any significant injuries.

Today? Both took deadly shots- one to a throat, one to a knee:(

Rick Jeanneret, the Sabres' longtime voice and recent inductee to the Hockey Hall of Fame, revealed that he's been diagnosed with Stage 3 throat cancer. The prognosis is decent, but it's still a blow to an organ-eye-zation that has been through way too much in the past few years.


Topping even that news, trending nationally, was the seeming season-ending injury to Bills defender Kiko Alonso. A surprise starter as a rookie in 2013 and quickly one of their best prospects, he tore his ACL working out on his own back in Oregon, and the surgery and rehab will likely cost him all of 2014. This, after one of their other defensive stars got busted in two different states in the off-season and will likely be suspended for all or part of the year even if he avoids both pokeys.

Fortunately, we have no other major league teams, so there's nobody else to have their season ruined:P

Oh the Bisons have plenty of time to have their season ruined, major or not.

The Sabres broadcasts just won't be the same without RJ. :( What's next? Is Anthem Guy retiring too?
