Your new Buffalo Sabres Owners...

Wow, what a roller coaster of a day here. From the excitement from the hint of the Sabres doing something right with the new third jersey to finding out Larry Quinn is now a minority owner of the team. He technically isn't a controlling interest but soon enough, Tommy G is going to cash in his chips and Larry Quinn and DiPofi can each or seperately step up with the controlling stake in the team...especially if all of Larry Quinn's developing projects come to full fruition. I'll try to reserve judgement for now. This might not be a big deal either...granting minority ownership could merely be a part of of a restructuring of these two executives' compensation package for being Buffalo Sabres management.

A suggestion this here hamilton dropping thousandaire would like to make is to let loose some of that cash and raise your self-imposed salary cap.

So there you go. I have to go clean the vomit off my monitor now.

Proof positive that in some circles, you just fail upwards.

He did have a hand in the Commercial Slip, which is absolutely gorgeous and I hope a building block to a better Buffalo. But with Quinn at the helm, let's hope they don't blow it.

How did that clown get involved with such a high profile project anyway?

Sour grapes you say? Maybe. But he represents nothing more to me than proof that in life (particularly life in Western New York), it really isn't what you know, but who you know.

Congrats Larry. How about putting your portrait on the front of the next jersey? Although, based on that haircut, it looks like he already did.
