In case you missed the news of the day WGR550 and the Buffalo Sabres are now teaming up for a hour infomercial from 10am until Noon year round to promote errr talk about the Buffalo Sabres. Oh and Kevin Sylvester will be hosting from F'n center..
I honestly didn't think that a.) WGR could get worse and b.) I didn't think I would ever miss Colin Cowherd. But in one fell swoop the only sports talk station in town accomplished both. Now instead of getting at least some information and entertainment from Mr. Contrarian about all sports we'll get to discuss Derek Roy's hair cut in the months of July and August when Sabres news is piping hot. WTF?
This news is borderline mind boggling. Does WGR think everyone has amnesia or something? Sylvester was cut loose from this very same radio station not that long ago. The guy is brutal and a corporate stooge for the Sabres. Furthermore, what does this say about the neutrality of this sports talk station if they have a daily show dedicated singularly to the Sabres broadcast from their own barn?
Guess I'll have to pony up and get a smart phone so I can stream Cowherd or anything else because I could never imagine listening to two hours of Sabres only every single day 52 weeks a year.
Oh and peace out Harry Neale, big head Rob Ray will be doing color. Yikes.
