I grew up in the land of the crab apple, Cheektowaga. I lived on crumbs thrown from the misc industry left through Bell in Tonowanda, Dad having a decent job off & on. Union watched his job title changed & called it fair on the layoff, all the while taking pieces of his paycheck away from our family. The support along the way was limited was limited to blocks of cheese & powered milk on occasion, painful way way to remember my childhood.
Maybe some of you witnessed success in town without any future retribution, situation willing. I didn't. I never asked for variance in my life based on my time as an adult. I never apologized for my time, nor will I ever concede an individual event that changed my personal being, besides my Mom passing.
I'm not asking for forgiveness or apologies for my past, future come what may. Every town based on levels of success & shortcomings come around to a new way of an finding their way, Buffalo didn't. We lack the inter-lake commerce that put us on the map, conceding events much greater than the sum of its parts. When the events strip most of the parts away, you find solace in only realizing those events & being able to accept them.
Our town is lost in believing better times are near, cast being inept to make a difference along the way. You guys might find a belief that our current predictiment is fixable, it's not based on scale. Our town doesn't buy enough of the products sold on the TV, the money doesn't flow. The money you can still see is hidden outside of the realm of local reality, based on a society that beats to a comfortable drum.
I suggest a visit to where I live now, see where the money resides. I harbor no ill will to anything Buffalo related, it's just small dream tweaking based on a main scene you live. Trust me in the fact that home is where the heart is and the money flowed away many years ago, the rest is residual of the flush.
Thanks to those who can relate.
Look Pittsburgh turned it around, and so can Buffalo. Change needs to start with the corrupt politicians. Invest in banking (which Buffalo is starting to do now with several banks HQ'd in Buff) and medicine/health research.
A thread to crap on the a bills and Buffalo... How original
Because Jay does not like this:
When somebody yells Stop, I don't know if its in the name of love, it's hammer time, or if I should collaborate and listen.....
It only makes it that much sweeter... so I bolded it
So pathetic that you still read and post on the bills message boards. I am amazed at the amount of fed up fans willing and eager to wash their hands of the Bills and send them off to greener pastures. For some reason those same fans read all the articles, watch all of the games, are consistently on the boards, and making up mock drafts.
Scedsall, jerzeerey, dutch4, billsfandave, bills1914, jasezel, roccityboi, jm2009 quit on the bills and the rest of us December 1, 2013.
The reason we know this is they announced it after the Falcons loss. If you see them or hear them talking about the Bills, please help them and remind them they quit, and are never coming back.
I am not sure if they took their ball when they quit and went home.
let me put you on game lil homie all you gotta do is stop and ask yourself if clicking dat submit button after typin all that dumb stuff is a good idea, the back button is your friend , you know what im sizzlin? stay tru , #FeedCJSpiller dog
