when compared to the Sabres....

Quote


Along with a pat on the butt, Buffalo babies born in 2013 will get a spanking new Sabres blanket. The hockey team and Kaleida Health have teamed up for the “Sabres Newborn Baby Program.” All children born in Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital and Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo this year will receive a Sabres-themed blanket and a certificate from team owner Terry Pegula.

I don't know that they dropped the ball they just decided to do it. I'm guessing Pegula got this idea from the Steelers who do it at local hospitals.

Beware the standard issue orange and aqua stripped blankets they often use to wrap up newborns.   :ph34r:

The BILLS are considering offering either a case of logo covered Pampers, or a BILLS Pacifier, for the times when the kids just Want to Shout!

Please fix the title of this thread.

I helped my elderly neighbor move a cabinet this morning.  That means you dropped the ball because you didn't help her first.  The Bills do plenty for the community.  This is not Bills news.  It's well established that Terry Pegula is overly generous.

I need to get into a business like that.....talk about cornering the market.

Somewhere...some idiot is burning 100s for kindling becuase he came up with the idea to put those blankets in every hospital in the Country.

It is a good idea. If professional hockey is ever played again. Now that the target audience has more time to watch basketball, good luck gaining new fans NHL. I hope the lockout is worth the hit in popularity.
