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!

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.

BBR Game Day LIVE – Experience!

We have a multi-media extravaganza for you, folks! Most of you could not be there for our first ever BBR Game Day LIVE… (Sunday Oct 21, 2007 @ The Ralph) so we’re bringing it to you! Dave made a little video (annoyingly so during the recording of the show!!) and Jen took some photos which I put to the opening theme music of the BBR. I also uploaded some photos to our Facebook group, and uploaded the higher-quality versions of both videos below to our server. Click the appropriate links if you’d like to download the better versions.

Various BBR-Newsworthy Items

There are a few random things from the previous show or two to tidy up, so I am posting them here, and hoping that folks are checking the BBR News page!

BBR Game Day LIVE!
We’ll be setting up in the ECC parking lot off Southwestern Blvd this Sunday morning. I’m bringing a football, and it looks like I’ll also be cooking my famous chicken wings right there in the parking lot as well! Our friend Chi will be making beef brisket (ya, I’m not to sure what that is either…) and we know Sven is bringing some German tailgating food… It’s gonna be a fun morning!

Then we watch the Bills dominate the Ravens!

Then we come back to the parking lot, set up the sound system, and do the Bills Review with a live audience! If you’re coming out to the game, don’t miss this part! Should be fun (and kinda funny…) and I just have no idea what we’ll get. We’re shooting for a start time of just half an hour after the game ends. We’ll see if we can do it.

If you missed the link above, more info (including a map) are at the original BBR Game Day Live post, here:

Van Miller Impression
Our friend Adam from New Jersey sent in his Van Miller impression a while back, but we never got to air it, so here it is in its entirety, in all it’s glory, for the ages… and for a Slim Jim. 🙂

Also, see a photo of the prize Adam won.

Kenny Mayne Interviews Gibran Hamden
You heard a snippet of the interview Kenny Mayne did with our now third string QB Gibran Hamden on our latest show (3.10) but there was more to it, and now you can hear the full 3 minutes or so!

BBR Game: October 21st vs Baltimore… GIVITAWILLIIIIIIIISSSSSSS!!!!!!

View Larger Map

GIVITAWILLIIIIIISSSS!!!!!Yes, folks, it’s official. We have decided that Sunday, October 21st, when Willis McGahee and the Baltimore Ravens come to town, we would like to be in attendance, and it would be awesome if all of the BBR listeners could be there too!

From the map above, you can see RWS, and ECC (to the left of the stadium). We’ll be in the lower left corner on the top right parking lot at ECC. (As you’re looking at the map on this page.) When you come in off Southwestern, take the first left, then a right into the parking lot, and head down straight to the end. We’ll be wearing BBR t-shirts. 🙂

If you have any questions, or are interested in helping to coordinate the gathering, e-mail us!

New Way To Chat

Enter BBRGameDayChatHey folks!

This is just a quick notice regarding an update to the website.

If you participated in the BBRGameDay chats last season, you will want to make a note. If you did not, you missed out on some great fun! Bills fans around the world “together” via the internet in one chat room, talking about the Bills game as it happens! And, all have the connection of listening to/participating in the BBR! (In fact, one of the guys who was in the chat last year ended up being on the show one week!)

It was set up as an AIM chat room last year, but there were plenty of people who were confused by AOL’s software. (Who isn’t??) So, I found a neato AJAX-y chat client that I installed on our server here, and is up and running. I tested it out last night, seems to be great. Can use some tweaks to be sure, but that is how we’ll go for upcoming Bills games (INCLUDING THE ONE THIS FRIDAY!!!!!!)

All you do is go to and click on the button to bring up the pop up window that houses the chat room. Instructions (should you need them) are at the old link,

This is a fun way to catch a Bills game together, so if you’re so inclined… join us in the BBR Game Day Chat!
