Buffalo 72 city connected?



I have trouble believing this article..... Well I'm sure it is true using the stats they used but I find it hard to believe... (e:strip), Buffalo Rising, and Skunk Post (never been but I assume local and still around) are 3 sites that quickly come to mind.... I know there are others like there is a blog that is only Buffalo sports and know a lot of the news station people have there own blog but not sure where and I know there is at least another 2 (don't have the names sorry) Buffalo Blog sites..... I think that to figure this out they went by facebook and myspace and then used other sites that maybe they heard about..... That being said I didn't read the article I just read the new piece about the article don't think they have a link to it though......

Updated: April 12, 2011, 7:01 AM

If Buffalo were a person, she would have 26 Facebook friends, 17 Twitter followers and three LinkedIn connections.

That’s according to Men’s Health, which gave the Queen City a D+—and the No. 72 position — in its ranking of the nation’s 100 largest cities based on social media savviness.

The magazine was trying to find America’s Most Socially Networked City.

Some of this area’s most devoted users of social media say Buffalo deserves a higher grade.

“There’s a lot of great people out there who are doing a lot of great things. To see that ranking really disappointed me,” said Jason Mollica, public-relations manager for Carr Marketing Communications, who has sent more than 18,000 Tweets as @JasMollica on Twitter.

Men’s Health said it based its ratings on data that included the number of Facebook users per capita and the percentage of households that visit blogs.

But Nicole Schuman was among those here who questioned the magazine’s ratings and said Buffalo has a large and active social-media community.

“I just feel like we’re right up there with everybody else,” said Schuman, the Web editor for Roswell Park Cancer Institute and president of Buffalo’s Social Media Club.

Men’s Health anointed Washington, D. C., as the Most Socially Networked City, with the nation’s capital joining Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis and Seattle as A+ social-media cities.

El Paso, Texas, sat at the bottom of the list, with midsized cities from Texas and California receiving the six “F” grades.

The ranking appeared at least as scientific as any of the lists that assign superlatives — from “most livable” to “best sports fans” — to various cities throughout the year.

A researcher collected data on the level of usage of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, chat rooms, blogs and other social networks.

No matter what Men’s Health found, Schuman and Mollica said Buffalo has a dedicated community on these sites.

If you don’t believe them, check out all of the Tweets that fly around in response to every momentum turn of a Sabres game. Use the hashtag #sabres.

“I think if Men’s Health had gone onto Twitter during a hockey game, they’d see something different,” said Schuman, who is no slouch herself with 24,000 Tweets as@Buffalogal .

A lot of local companies, politicians, nonprofit groups and sports teams have set up shop on these sites to reach potential customers and supporters.

Someone even sends out tweets as the neckwear of the Sabres coach,@LindyRuffsTie .

Buffalo’s Social Media Club is one of the largest in the country, Schuman said.

“We have to get a new space for our meetings, because we’re running out of room,” she said.

Local social-media users regularly get together offline, holding everything from tweet-ups to Foursquare Days, and area companies are hiring social-media experts.

Maybe there’s a perception problem, Mollica said, and this region can work harder to get known as a social-media hub.

“I think it’s sort of a clarion call for us in Buffalo,” he said. “How can we change it? How can we make ourselves better?”

If nothing else, at least we beat Honolulu, at No. 73. We can send a tweet to brag.

Wanting to Escape......

This Morning I left a bit late but not so late that I would be late for work.... On my walk on the way to work the Sunrise was looking pretty awesome yet far away so you could see how red it looked.. All I could think is how I would like to be on a beach some where and see this...... Just take off and go and stay.... of course at some point going back to work becomes reality the bills won't pay them selves... I think part of it is that lately they have been advertising plane flights to San Juan and Nassau now the 2nd one is a passport but not sure about San Juan....

Hoping that is enough and not to much all at the same time.... I had a good time even though the bisons lost. The big board is interesting it doesn't look much bigger to me.... The thing is that it is all video board so when they show high lights they are big and look amazing in HD!

Ask Not what your Country can do for you but what you can do for your Country!!!!

"Ask Not what you're country can do for you , ask what you can do for your Country" - JFK and Living Colour great band by the way... The Mentality that it hints at is still destroying this country of ours and I'm guessing it will in the future. We may have different meanings of that " ".. But to me it means that one should do what is good for the country and not themselves that they should give to the country and not take from it.....

1. Bankers knew that they could now give loans out to people who maybe couldn't pay them back. But see They didn't care about what happens when one person can't pay it back and wait what if this happens to everyone else with this type of loan. What would happen then..... All these people did was think about getting rich now. They thought of them selves 1st above the country.......

2. I admit I wasn't in the work force back then so I don't know if this is really true but it used to be that there where more jobs then people..... If you lost a job you just went out and got a new one.... Some of those lost Jobs are things where Technology changes or other factors. But most jobs lost in this country is because some American Company or even company that has a US Division put profits ahead of the country..... They ship jobs off to all kinds of places so the stock holder can get a bigger cut. Now when Americans don't have jobs how are they supposed to buy the stuff you make... But see these companies put there own self being ahead of the country.......

3. The NFL Players and Owners ..... Yes I get that they haven't lost any games yet but they may lose a season... Now most people or some would say the players are right or the owners are right... But again see they are only thinking about what is best for them and not the country..... Yes football is just a sport but it effects so many people in a positive way... Camera men, ushers , food sellers, shovelers , cleaners or anyone who works at the stadium or for the network could lose there job... What about places that show the NFL games on TV that is a huge lose of revenue and are there other sports and other reasons for people to go there yeah sure.... But some people will lose their Business in every city the nfl is in or maybe it will stay open but they won't be able to pay for their house........

4. Of course you all have the Well Fare cheats who and other scam artists who steal from the system or have crafty ways to not work (multipliable kids from multipliable fathers)... Again they think so what I'll do what is good for me with my steak dinners and big TV and nice couch and live off the government ....

These are just a quick few examples. I'm not saying we should think like china where the whole is more important then the individuals to the point where no one has any rights... If you are a bit of trouble you are thrown out and no one cares since the whole is more important. I'm not saying that doing what is good for us is bad. But there needs to be a balance... People have to willing to give up some stuff or at least not take from the country or we will have no country left soon........

Cheer leading sexualized Kids

I don't know as I can express what I want to say clearly but I'm going to try.... I love the Bandits and the Bandettes. I think they are move of a dance team then cheerleaders and yes new hockey teams do have dance teams I have heard that some of them may even go on the ice but can't confirm that...... The Bandettes have a Jr. Bandettes program and at first it seems hey great idea.... Kids can do back wait I mean hand springs and all that cheer leader stuff and get in good shape.......

But see there is an ugly side to it as well.... Lets face it At the college level or higher have you ever seen an ugly cheerleader ...UM no... Have you ever seen a fat one..... No.... Yes some may carry a bit of weight but they aren't fat but I bet they are solid and have huge tits that fit their build.... So what does this say to young ladies well I think it says you have to look like this to do this.... I think that can be driving force to be fit but can also lead to other problems But not like modeling cause being thin if you don't have the strength to dance and lift people is no good....

The Point that all cheerleaders at least from College on are hot is what gets me to my point. Are they there cause they love the school.... Or is it to keep tabs on their athlete boy friends.... What ever the reason in the end it comes down to that Men watch them and are entertained by them... Hey when your team is playing bad it is a good distraction and in some sports might get fans into the game.... Again the point here is that these women are showing off there stuff to men.... It isn't like I'm licking this sucker that is way bigger then your cock and since I can take it in a can swallow you and your balls..... But there is still a sexual under current there of showing off the goods and moves to men..... Well when you have the JR. Team out on the field that is what you are doing... When you get kids ready for that you are teaching them to show off the goods.... That is just wrong......

I get that the hot sexy Cheer leaders in high school need to learn from some program some place.... But again here is a case where young High School Girls get to show off their stuff at football and Basketball games.... Granted to other students not a big deal but what about when the 3 dads are all checking out the girls that aren't their daughter.... Or in many cases it is dads or moms in some cases that come out to watch someone they know play the sport and as a side thing check out the hot underage girls.... I admit not sure how cheer leading in High School is now but I'm sure everyone who makes the squad is fully developed and look like they could be in College... Dad or Mom or whomever can't tell 16-19 looks wise I mean they know they are underage but looks sure do fool them....

So Yes I do think that kids are sexualized by cheer leading and they don't even know it... At some point and I have no idea at what age they put on make up and those outfits....

On a side note Penn & Teller had a great episode of their show Bullshit about Cheer leading and about how it is not considered a sport when it should be......

Friday The Skiffle Minstrels

So On Friday I went to The Sportmen's Tavern for the first time to see The Skiffle Minstrels It was a great time I didn't stay for all it turned out I got to see a full set though.... I have to say even though I don't watch Baseball it was a hard not to watch bits and pieces of it on that HD TV it sure looked good.... With the light and where I was shooting the pictures aren't the best......

First Day of Baseball

So from what I understand today is the Baseball's opening day... Now that doesn't mean your team has a home opener today since there can only be one home team.... It seems silly to have the season start so early when it can and does still snow but of course if you push the season back any that is a risk you take the other way ..... Think it has snowed during the playoffs before but not sure about that....

The Bisons open up a week from today and even though it is a 3pm game it is a good reason to take the day off... Hope there is no snow or rain or high winds and that I can enjoy the game and a Burger or maybe some Mexican (there was a moe's there not sure if there still is) not really a hot dog guy......

For those with Passports go to Toronto to see a game it is fun and if you want to see it from a different perspective get those 9 dollar seats it is almost like a video game where you are looking down at everything it is really trippy ...... You can go there for more then just a game as well..... Baseball is so much better in person and Yes $20-25 to park but if you are going to do other stuff not a big deal...... There is a way to get a ticket to watch from the Hard Rock Cafe windows but not sure how that works.... I also have seen a game in Cleveland.... From seeing games here it makes it seem like Dunn Tire Park was built backwards like sitting in the seats you should be able to see downtown .........

As I said before I wish I could get into Baseball on TV. I admit I'm a Costas fan and think he does a great job.... But even so I just can't get into baseball on TV I have watched it but.... I think part of it is the delays.... See in a ballpark there is a pitch you look to see if you judged it correctly when people are on bases you have that to watch...... But on TV all of that is done for you and once you learn how to read that graphic you know the count and what bases people are on aren't so the delay's seem slow..... I also think that some how the action of stealing a base is lost.......

Back to the long season.... I never played Baseball in a league so maybe I don't get this nor did a play in school.... But to me baseball is a summer thing not a spring fall and almost winter thing..... I think some sports are to long and there is to much of them.... Same is true with hockey at Club Daiblo this was mentioned slightly that hockey should be over when the ice is soft like in June.... I think that is cause the playoffs take so long since they play every other day........

Baseball does for some reason make great Movies..... Basketball, Major League, Field Of Dreams (not really about baseball at all) and others I have never seen........

How Did Bob Uker become Mr Baseball?
Why Isn't Pete Rose in the Hall Of Fame?
How come did "The Chicken" Lose San Diago ..... and be more Famous then the Team?

I don't know what it is that even with drug abuse there is still something pure about baseball.... Maybe that it isn't a contact sport? Maybe it is the fresh cut grass and that smell? maybe it is how the field is cut so nice and the lines are perfect and you can watch the field come together........

I admit I have no means into Canada and I won't go to that many bisions games but Baseball is great and even as it snows it some how marks a new beginning ..........
