On the brink of Christmas many of us were still getting over the fact that the shootings in Connecticut were real, and someone could hurt innocent people. Well Rochester is very close to one NFL team in the Buffalo Bills who actually have their teams mini camp at St. John Fisher College. Well today Scott Chandler the Buffalo Bills tight end was there to greet the West Webster fire department, as he put out a tweet today saying:
scottchandler84 Scott Chandler 1m
Me and the guys from West Webster Fire Department
And he showed the picture above. What a tragedy to lose two firemen when two others were wounded, but it is great to see that the NFL players are able to bring a smile to the face of the real heroes by just showing up.
The first day of calling hours for two West Webster firefighters who were killed in the line of duty begins at 6 p.m. Friday. Thursday, Lieutenant Mike Chiapperini died as the result of a single gunshot wound while firefighter Tomasz Kaczowka died from two gunshot wounds.
Friday’s calling hours were for firefighters and police officers only, but due to the overwhelming response, the calling hours for Friday have been opened to the public.

Though the outcome of Sunday’s matchup against the New York Jets may be uncertain, personnel changes in the offseason are looking more and more absolute for the Buffalo Bills. After a number of additions this past offseason boasted expectations of a strong season to come, those hopes fell flat with inconsistent play and a plague of injuries across the board. As the losses have...
New York Jets (6-9) at Buffalo Bills (5-10)
Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot and both could easily have new Head Coaches and starting quarterbacks next season. I don’t like to make big plays on games involving two teams completely out of the playoff race. There’s...
