CITY DESK: Yosemite Sam and football


Niagara Gazette — Anything, we figured, had to be better than wasting energy and emotion on the soul-crushing Bills franchise. 

By the time we got off the phone, we had a few laughs and I was feeling better, more relaxed, reminding myself that it's just a game and there are more important things. 

As I drove out of the Pine Plaza parking lot where I had stopped to chat with my nephew, I took a deep breath, contemplated the shortness of life and counted my blessings for all God has given me. 

And then, I thought:  "Gronkowski! Wide Open?"

"Dang that rackin, frackin dirty son of a danged ole fin flappin' flounder!"
