The Sabres Tank Reloaded by @LukeWachob

You could say it’s a hard time to be a Buffalo sports fan. The Bills are gearing up for a sequel to the Kelly Holcomb/J.P. Losman QB controversy and the Sabres are coming off a historically poor season. Both have been rebuilding for years, but while we’re desperate to win, it still feels far away.
