Normally, the Mannings rule the airwaves, but this was different. Oh well, packed up and hit the Buffalo Wild Wings. We have more fans in that restaurant than the Saints.
That's the way it is in Charlotte. All week you see CBS advertise a Steelers game, but on game day they have a program of some old lady selling a sewing machine. The only game on, during what normally is a double-header, is the Carolina Panthers playing on FOX. I grew up near Syracuse, NY (3 hours from Buffalo) and the only games shown were Bills games. So you are just experiencing what the NFL is pushing for "local" programming.
