In 1986, I told my mom that I was sleeping over my friend Jay's house so I could wait out all night to buy tickets to Van Halen's show at the Niagara Falls Convention Center. It was the first tour with new lead singer Sammy Hagar, and we were all jammin' "Why Can't This Be Love" in our boom boxes on a daily basis. I made $80 a week working at Burger King, so shelling out $25 to see Van Halen was kind of a big deal. I ended up getting 17th row. That same ticket today would have cost me about $250.
Getty Images/DC Comics What are the people at Warner Bros. thinking? After the success of ‘The Avengers,’ there was no doubt that DC Comics had to respond with their own supergroup of superheroes, and the ‘Justice League‘ fits the bill. But to put Ben Affleck at the helm and actually let him act in the movie -- are they insane?!
Roger Goodell isn't exactly guaranting that the Buffalo Bills will stay in Western New York, even if they negotiate a new lease. Charles Schumer will give a stump speech in front of Ralph Wilson stadium today saying he has a plan to keep the team here long term, but the timing is weird considering Schumer has not taken part in any negotiations between Erie County and the Bills so far. The reality is we could lose the Bills. Are you ready for that contingency?
I'm not a fan of the Jesus and Mary Chain, even though they are a huge deal to alternative rock fans, but business picked up when Mad Men actress Jessica Paré showed up backstage. I was too shy to press her for details of what she was doing in Buffalo -- my best guess is that she is dating the tour manager, because she was canoodling with him prior to the band going on stage -- and all I could say was "Holy crap, that's the chick from Mad Men."
The Eden Corn Fest is bittersweet. We love the corn, but it's the first sign that summer is almost over. Before you know it, it's Erie County Fair time, the Bills start playing football and then, bang!, it's over.
