PARRINO: Buffalo matters because we say so


Tonawanda News —

If Toronto is such a great sports town how come so many of its fans come here to watch the games?

Toronto may not care much about Buffalo, but the people who live there sure do spend a lot of time here. Whether it be to watch a hockey game or pick up the latest fall fashions, we'll continue to welcome you into our backyard, because that's who we are.

While you're here, please feel free to take in a football game — whatever it is that is played one Sunday a year at Rogers Centre doesn't count — and grab an order of wings. 

But judging by the Twitter banter, Kelly won't be crossing the border anytime soon. He's probably better off though — an up close and personal view of what makes Buffalo what it is may remind him what Toronto can never be: a true sports town.
