Preliminary Football Stuff

Whenever I watch football, I always have to inform The Daughter as to which team is which. Today it went like this:

"Who are the guys in the white shirts and red hats?"

"Those are helmets, not hats, sweetie, and those are the Chiefs. They're from Kansas City."

"Oh. And the guys in the blue shirts are the Bills?"

"Yup! We root for the Bills."

"Yeah. And I also like the Dolphins."


:: Also, you know how CBS or FOX Sports will often have a camera crew somewhere in the city they're in, so they can cut to shots of the current game's region whenever they are going to commercial break or returning from one? For some reason, the "representative shot" of the Buffalo area is always of the water going over Niagara Falls. And yeah, that's iconic and all, but would it kill them to show something else? Like maybe one of our great old buildings downtown, or the outside of the Albright Knox, or something like that? I don't know who makes these decisions, but surely we could lobby those people. Niagara's not the only thing around here.
