COMMENTARY: Ghostline brings Sabres/Bills to Lockport’s front door

LOCKPORT — From a very funny training camp story in Willis McGahee’s rookie season to the quiet demeanor of Buffalo Bills head coach Dick Jauron, Bills players McGahee and Nate Clements gave local fans plenty of laughs and insight on Tuesday night during the taping of the Nate Clements Show in Lockport.

It’s the first of two television programs in which Ghostline Productions out of Rochester will bring not only our beloved Buffalo Bills and Sabres into our living rooms, but to our Lockport front door steps as well.

In typical fashion, Attitudes owner Bob Soemann — an avid Lockport sports fan — has showed tremendous insight in bringing the best players from these two Buffalo professional franchises to Lockport, where locals have an opportunity to meet them, talk to them, listen to them talk about their lives and their teams and take home free autographs.

While Lockport sports fans owe Soemann a pat on the back for a job well done, there’s more to come at his bar/restaurant at 616 West Ave.

A new Sabres program, “Power Play,” takes over the Clements’ show’s time slot at 6 p.m. Saturdays on My TV 49, beginning next week, and that too is coming to the Lock City.

“Power Play” will be taped at Attitudes at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 23. Here’s a second golden opportunity for local fans, especially the young ones, to enjoy the taping of a local sports show and that once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet and greet a Sabres player in the flesh.

The edited 30-minute Clements’ show taped in Lockport will be broadcast on My TV 49 at 6 p.m. this Saturday. Powerplay debuts a week later.

Clements and McGahee were a big hit before, during and after the show and took the time to sign autographs for everyone who stood in line.
