Color Commentary and Movie Magic๐ŸŽฌ

Blue (for the Sabres) on my Instagram today but white (for the snow) yesterday❄๐Ÿ‚

A mix of the two before that with Elvis' "Blue Christmas"๐ŸŽ„

Green for the win too!

Unfortunately, TOO much snow in Buffalo has postponed their last two hockey games - and maybe a third vs Detroit tomorrow✋


This is my first blog post since early July. I have kept busy since then at times working as a background extra in the film industry for 13 days. The most high-profile role was on the first shoot on August 6 when I did a photo session as Lucy Hale's late father. My wife was Jane Seymour.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame? Don't Forget The Food๐Ÿ˜‹ *would be rude๐Ÿฑ

Take me out to the ballgame

Basketball and football get the spotlight more than baseball in my latest round of Instagram pics๐Ÿ“ท

Hey! The sun is shining below and even the Stanley Cup ๐Ÿ† Congrats Colorado!

It's #NationalFriedChickenDay so let's include a little basketball #FoodForThought๐Ÿ”

Jimmy Butler and Stacey King both have their roots with the Chicago Bulls - just like my most recent Instagram photo: Michael Jordan. Read about that nickname here.

A word that sounds like nickname is below and I'm guessing we all said it when we were young kids๐Ÿ˜†

Stick Up...for Hockey๐Ÿ“ฃ And People!

Three of my last four Instagram posts have had a hockey flavor⌣ 

#TisTheSeason The NHL season starts with two games tonight - including the expansion Seattle Kraken in Las Vegas. A V for VancouVer who finish their 6-game road trip to start the season in Seattle on October 23rd. One week from today the Canucks will be in Buffalo in a matchup of my two favorite teams! 

I am back for my fourteenth season as the imaging voice for the Sabres on the MSG-TV broadcasts๐Ÿ“บ

Three It Up 4 These Two๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍❤️‍๐Ÿ‘จ

Three's a crowd on yesterday's Instagram post but 3 nice couple (snacks count!) photos before that๐Ÿ˜Š

Are you enjoying the Tokyo Olympics? 
I recently narrated a longer piece involving Japanese history. It had a lot of pronunciations that were challenging but I came through with a gold medal performance๐Ÿ†

Have an awesome August๐ŸŒž

Tee It Up⛳ or Tree It Up๐ŸŒฒ

My latest posts on Instagram all seem to have Trees to some degree in the background๐Ÿ‘€

If you want to be picky, those are plants above the birthday boy, Justin, on lucky June 13th๐Ÿ€

How do you like my new backyard hoop? 

Lots of trees! 
A famous basketball Tree was probably very excited to see the team that drafted him 14th overall in 1977 win game 7 against the '76'ers last night. Tree Rollins spent a decade with the Atlanta Hawks and was known for his defense and shot-blocking⛔
I see Tree turned 66 last week so belated Happy Birthday!

I was blessed yesterday to celebrate my 30th Father's Day๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ž
Thanks to this tribe for a nice evening out!

Turn Out The Lights on 2020 and Light Up The World in 2021๐ŸŽ‡✨

For the 6th month in a row, I'm blogging to finish it off AND 2020!

Some classic rock thoughts from me on my Twitter accounts as we count down the final hours of 2020๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽถ
Happy birthday to Jeff Lynne of ELO, who hit 73 yesterday๐ŸŽ‚
Michael Jackson's "Beat It" would also be an appropriate song to end the year with☑️

Do you remember the late 
Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne both being in the Traveling Wilburys? That was between 1988 - 1991. Three other superstars in the group: 
Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Roy Orbison. 
#TimeFlies but great music stands the test of time

I'm looking forward to being a part of the Sabres action next month for my 13th season of voiceover
Great team behind the scenes! No average Joes
Bring on the ice - and snow... #HockeyWeather
