On my way ...

So, I mentioned briefly on WECK this morning that I'm going to New York City this weekend.

I go every six months or so for - basically - a talk show host convention.

It's always a good time and I get to whore around Manhattan while I'm there.

So I'm waiting at the Buffalo Niagara Interational Airport for my bus and I thought I'd post a quick blog to let you all know that I'll be blogging from the city while I'm there.

On my way to the airport, there was a DUI traffic stop on Transit in Clarence. Cop asks me, "How much have you had to drink tonight?" To which I respond, "No." Fortunately he was quick to realize that I was just stupid. Not drunk.

More shenanigans in the morning from beautiful Manhattan.

Last night's SNL ...

As last night was a hockey night ... I missed SNL's special Thursday edition ... and I'm thinking many of you did as well.

But here's the best part:
