Greg’s Big Announcement

As you have heard by now on Show 5.03, Greg has announced his retirement from the Buffalo Bills Review. After four fun years of talking Bills football, he is laying down the microphone.

Here is the statement he read on the final show (minus a few ad libs…)

To the BBR listening (and participating) audience.

In August of 2005 I had a fun idea, pitched it to my brother in law (Uncle Josh, for those who have been with us that long) and later to The Drake… and thus was born Buffalo Bills Review. Seemed like a fun idea, even if no one would listen.

Well, we were wrong. In the first couple weeks we started getting emails. People loved the show. We had well over a hundred people downloading our shows… Sports Illustrated even featured us as one of four podcasts worth listening to!

It’s taken off from there… we have met up for two years at Bills game (the BBR game!) … we’ve had listeners from all over the world participating in the show. We’ve had lots of great current and former Buffalo Bills join us on the show since that first year. We’ve had fun Bills fans like the president of VH1 on the show (Hey, Tom…)

We’ve had J.P. Losman. Nuff said. 🙂

But in this coming season, Season 5 of the Buffalo Bills Review – four full years after we recorded the first show… we will not have me.

Effective immediately, I’m laying down my microphone, and will no longer be hosting this #1 Bills show on the internet. I may keep writing articles (not sure yet) but I will no longer be doing the show, at the mic, or in the mixing/engineering/podcast/website running duties.

The show may continue. We are not shutting down BBR just yet. That’s not set at the moment, so we won’t go into any detail there. We’ll make any pertinent announcements via the BBR website (or Facebook page).

I would like to say thanks. Thanks for listening. For contributing. For having fun with me, with us. Thanks to my co-hosts over the years. Thanks much to our special guests. I’ve had a blast – and if I had the time to give to it, I’d certainly continue. But my growing family needs me (and I need them) 🙂 So, with regret (but knowing it’s the best thing to do…) I lay my microphone down.

Can’t wait for this Bills season… as with every Bills season! I’m a big Bills fan, and will continue to be!

BBR will take it’s normal off-season break – post-draft to training camp. We’ll see how it comes out on the other side. For now… for me…

Thanks, goodbye, and Go Bills!

Another Chicken Wing Wager

Buffalo chicken wingsHello everyone. As mentioned on our show, John and I discussed wager possibilities and we settled on the following:

  • If the Bills lose by THREE TOUCHDOWNS (21 pts) or more to the Pats on Sunday 11/9, then Greg buys John wings.
  • If the Bills DO NOT lose by 21 pts or more, John buys Greg wings.

(21 pts?? Really???)

John’s prediction was that the Pats would actually win by 27 (37-10) so, 21 will be easy. (Ha!)

My point (Greg) is that we have no business suiting up for any of our remaining games in 2008 if we lose a game that we absolutely MUST win, against a team with at least as many injuries as we have, and who the Bills are at least as good as…. if we lose that game by TWENTY ONE POINTS???? That would be a disgrace.

So, I’d bet on me collecting some chicken wings on another silly, pessimistic prediction involving our Buffalo Bills. 🙂

Go Bills! Score me some wings! 🙂

BBR Game! Oct 19th, vs San Diego

It’s time for the 2nd Annual BBR Game! We’ll be meeting up in the southwest corner of the northeast lot. (The lot closest to the stadium.) We’re planning to be making wings (Greg’s famous wings) as well as some other great tailgating “cuisine”. Be sure to bring something to add to the mix.

We’ll be there no later than 10am, and plan to hang out till about noon when we’ll pack up and head in for a big Bills win!!

BBR celebrities will be there, including your BBR hosts, the Ball Burglar guys, Tom Calderone, and the infamous Sven from Germany! (Maybe we can even get a cameo appearance by JP Losman?)

We will not be recording the show in the parking lot following the game this year, but that gives y’all more time to get your calls and emails in after the game.

Click the map below for directions, and we’ll see ya out THIS SUNDAY at the BBR Game!

Greg will be Live Blogging at!

Quick news flash here… Earlier in the summer, the Buffalo News asked us to contribute to a new site they wanted to start this football season, They are featuring our podcast, as well as my (Greg’s) articles and even a couple live chat events.

One of those is a live blog during the game. I will be moderating a few of those, along with some other folks. The schedule for those has been announced, and here are the games I will be moderating (which includes THIS Sunday!):

  • 9/21 1:00pm vs Oakland
  • 10/26 1:00pm at Miami
  • (the Bills @ Miami… not me)

  • 11/9 1:00pm at Patriots

It looks like I’ll be there 30 min prior to kickoff, so come on over and add your comments to the mix. It’ll be just like the BBR Game Day chat room, except, not in the BBR Game Day chat room.

See ya there.

Dave Meets Billy Buffalo

Dave, Marie, and Billy Buffalo

While we were at the night practice at St John Fisher College last Thursday, Dave was bumped out of the way by none other than BILLY BUFFALO! So we snapped a shot of Dave, and his wife Marie, posing with the beloved Bills mascot. Just thought we should share…

BBR Guys Website Updates

BBR Articles Page – New Writers

Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that we’re expanding a bit here at the Buffalo Bills Review! We have brought on a few more contributors to the Articles Page, hoping to make that a place full of great Bills-related articles, thoughts, editorials, even links and quick news tidbits. With more contributors, there should be even more content, and a great variety, too!

All the BBR hosts will be contributing (Greg, Dave, The John, Dre, maybe even “Uncle” Josh) as well as Ben Plewak, and Brian Hedger who wrote for BBR last year. Joining the team this year are Ryan Simmons, host of The NFL Tailgate (and last year filled in for Greg for a show), and “wyo”, a former blogger at, and super-mega contributor to the Message Boards. She’s a long-time Bills fan, and has great stuff to say about our Bills.

More will be joining the team, and the page will be hopping soon, with Buffalo Bills football really JUST around the corner! So stop by the page and/or bookmark the feed.

And… Go Bills! Training camp is almost here!!

A New Member of the Campbell Family

Emma Caroline is here
This is sort of BBR News by default (as I, Greg, am one of the voices of the BBR.) On March 13th, the Campbell family grew by one with the addition of another baby girl, Emma Caroline! She’s beautiful, and healthy, and so is Mom – and we are delighted! We like the name Emma, and Caroline is after her Grandma. She’s sleeping in her mom’s arms as I type this.

Just thought I’d make that little announcement here as it has certainly affected the frequency of updates to the BBR site over the past month or so! Starting to get back to a normal routine here in our house.

Check out the links page and click through to my blog and back around when she was born you can see a few more photos if you’d like.

Welcome Emma Caroline! (We’ll be introducing her to Bills football this summer! Another Bills fan is born!)
