Bill Kenney moved to Buffalo in August 2008 and hasn’t looked back since. A Rochester native and St. Bonaventure graduate, he, along with his wife and three kids, reside in Amherst.
This site is important to him because he cannot picture Buffalo without professional sports. The Bills and Sabres are the fabric that binds the community through better or worse in a way that’s unique amongst cities in North America. A former member of the 716 Sports Podcast and play-by-play man for the Buffalo 716ers, he is excited to once again be writing on a regular basis, and considers this site a love letter to his adopted hometown.
Nicholas John has been suffering Buffalo sports fan for far too long. His first memory dates back to Ronnie Harmon's endzone drop in the 1989 NFL season playoff game and has stuck with him ever since. As a former Bandits and FC Buffalo season ticket holder, Nick has enjoyed the Buffalo sports scene in almost all of its forms. His most memorable sports memories include the 2009 Winter Classic, sitting next to the Ohio State Marching Band when UB played OSU in 2013, and sitting in the very last row at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas. Nick was the contrarian anti-Sabres tank contributor on the 716SportsPodcast as well as the current anti-Hulk Hogan contributor on Yet Another Wrestling Podcast. He is also the owner of Trivia716 (formerly Quiz Night in Buffalo). He currently resides in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Born too late to enjoy the four straight Super Bowl bids, but just in time to grow up in the aftermath of No Goal and Homerun Throwback, I've always had a weird relationship with Buffalo sports. While loving the teams, their quirks, the players and their stories, being a Buffalo sports fan has usually meant being able to handle, and sometimes even embrace, disappointment. With the golden ages of Buffalo sports behind and hopefully ahead of us, I live in the middle.
When not working for Buffalo Twenty/20, I am the voice of Canisius College hockey, FC Buffalo, and the Buffalo Jr. Sabres. I also contribute regularly to the 716 Sports Podcast.
Fandom frequently begins when a team reaches great heights, but Erik's Buffalo sports obsession started in the high-hung oranges of The Aud when Christian Ruuttu wowed the mid-80s crowds. Since then, he's witnessed roller hockey championships, indoor soccer successes, arena football flops, and everything else that has become standard fare for the average Buffalonian.
He's written for more defunct websites than Buffalo has championship losses, and rode that honor straight to the broadcast booth for the NWHL, NPSL, and NCAA.
