Buffalo - March 21, 2012
With spring kicking off early this year it's hard not to think back, remember the Expos and wonder what kind of success they might have enjoyed had they ended up with a new downtown stadium. Nostalgia got the better of us when we stumbled across Coca-Cola Field, home of the Buffalo Bisons - the New York Mets' "AAA" farm team. Even though their season only gets underway on April 11th, the grass on the field was already green and it seemed like you could already smell hotdogs cooking in the air.
Journalist Jim Kelley (not to be confused with former Bills quarterback, Jim Kelly) famously covered the Sabres for nearly 30 years for the Buffalo News before finally losing his courageous battle with cancer in November of 2010. In his honor, the city of Buffalo renammed part of Washington Street running next to First Niagara Center, "Jim Kelley Way".
