Buffalo Bills win total: Is anyone better than Buffalo?

Buffalo had another strong regular season last year. They won the AFC East again and then punished the rival Patriots in the playoffs winning 47-17. Then they lost to Kansas City in one of the best playoff games in recent memory. The Chiefs seem to have their number, but that is sports, right? I am not sure there is a better team in the NFL right now, and that includes the Rams who they play to start the season (and are the defending Super Bowl champs).

Western New York Rootie’s Shortage Might Be Over Soon

Thanks to one persistent local, we might know when our favorite Buffalo blue cheese will finally be back in stock. Buffalo’s own Rootie’s Famous Gourmet Blue Cheese has been MIA from supermarkets for months. Frustrated wing lovers all over Western New York have resorted to hoarding bottles of it the rare times their local store has it on their shelves. Some have even (GASP) switched blue cheese brands just to make sure their wings aren’t completely naked this summer. There has even been some speculation out there that the Rootie’s company might not be doing well financially (a heartbreaking fact for many local businesses after the pandemic), leaving many to wonder if they’d ever get their hands on their precious Rootie’s blue cheese again.

Large Boa Constrictor Found on Lawn of New York State Family

Snakes are out all across New York state this time of year. They're a part of nature. But while some other recent snake sightings are species commonly found in New York and surrounding states, this particular case wasn't. This was no native species, as it's probably another case of someone with an exotic pet that either got loose or simply got too big to take care of. A family in New York state was in for the shock of their lives recently when it showed up on their property.

Do Fish Travel Over Niagara Falls (And Do They Survive)?

Niagara Falls is along the border of the U.S. and Canada just northwest of Buffalo New York. There are three falls that make up the group of Niagara Falls, with the “Horseshoe Falls” (Canadian Falls) being the most commonly referenced. The other two falls are the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The falls occur between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie where the Niagara River connects the two. The river flows over Niagara Falls and then splits, going around Grand Island before coming together again to empty into Lake Erie just west of Buffalo. With a large variety of fish that live in the Niagara River, you could ask do fish travel over Niagara Falls? And if they do, do they survive? Let’s find out!
