Now I know what some of you are thinking when you read that headline.
But I’ve been thinking about it for the last few weeks, and I really think it’s true. I mean just the city itself has so much going for it.
An easy escape from World War 3.
And SUNY Buffalo got an A-Grade from a website I lazily looked up.
What’s not to love?
On the sports side, it’s even better.
The best tailgate in the NFL.
A young quarterback with all the potential in the world.
A Head Coach who could moonlight as Jason Statham’s stunt double.
And most importantly, not this guy.
And that’s where this all starts. This tweet.
That news hit on a Friday night as people were likely winding their nights down in Buffalo. I can’t imagine the amount of Ambien needed to calm someone down after news like that lights up their phone.
I mean, you get news like that, you can’t help but think about all the problems coming into your life. You know bad when you see it and you have two choices. Fight through it and make a better life, or sleep through it and hope it goes away. I’ll assume Buffalo did what I usually do and chose the latter. It never works.
Then the unthinkable happened.
It actually fucking worked!
Now I gotta tell you, when you find a loophole in life, like finding out your old college professor doesn’t check for plagiarism, or realizing stealing money from your girlfriend’s purse saves more money on lunch then when you spend your own money, you tend to have a more excited outlook on life.
I mean, if you can beat life, what can actually beat you?
That’s what this trade falling apart did for this city. Now the air is a little cleaner, the grass a little greener, the sky a little bluer, and the cheese a little bleu-er.
And with every time Antonio Brown takes to social media
That happiness and excitement gets revitalized.
I honestly can’t imagine what relief like that must be like.
What I do know is the Bills see this too, and it must boost morale 10x every time. AB keeps this up, there’s a real chance the Bills go undefeated in the regular season and lose the next four Super Bowls.
