That makes two of us. It's approaching 2:00 here.

He said on ESPN recently that he can't watch the Cup presentation because he never won one.

I was wondering what if Detroit wins and Bettman's asleep?

I met Bettman on a plane, once...empty flight, we were in adjacent rows. I asked him if Paul Tagliabue would be caught dead sitting in coach. Here we go, 3OT starting....

There were some Sabres fans at the Winter Classic who happened to be chatting with someone from the league before the game. He gave them 2 tickets to Bettman's box and they said (to his credit) he could not have been nicer to them, they watched the whole game together and he let them have their pictures taken with him.

I have a buddy that works at Vs. and he has mixed things to say about him, but, a lot of people are different in the board room as opposed to when facing the public. By the way, lifelong Isles fan here, and while I'm old enough to vividly remember their Cup winning years, I'm also a huge LaFontaine fan....he's beloved on the Island, still....even if I'm here in Chicago.

Patty always joked that during his entire career he never had to change his drivers license or license plates.

My first trip to Buffalo was in 1999. I had lived in NYC from 1970-1997. I land in Buffalo and my counterpart there picks me up and offers to take us to dinner, perfect. We're driving and I'm looking around, trying to get a feel for the place, take it all in, I love travel. And, this runs through my head "why the hell are there so many NY license plates here?????" and about 15 seconds later I remind myself that Buffalo is in the state. Pathetic incident from a once myopic NYC resident.

Who could blame you????

At least I had the good sense to figure it out for myself.

My sister just moved to Syracuse from The Bronx and my parents reacted like they needed a passport to go visit her.
