Dale Mussen

I've been doing this radio thing for over 35 years now. I've been a part of the Breakfast Club morning show since 1986. Since I was a kid, I've loved to read. I read the newspaper each day nearly cover to cover – usually not the classifieds though. I get a lot of ideas for my Daily Data segment just by reading the paper. I’m a lifelong Bills and Sabres fan, and I've been a regular in the press box of both teams since 1979 -- but I'm still waiting for one of them to win a championship! Four cracks at it for the Bills and two for the Sabres, and they came up short. I was born and raised in the Buffalo area. I went to school at Niagara University, and since Clay went to Canisius, we get to raz each other twice each year when the Eagles and Griffs meet to play basketball. I have a large collection of records. I'm one of the few that still has the old vinyl, including a lot of old 45s in their original sleeves. Some kids probably have no idea what I'm talking about at this point. My favorite things to do in my spare time are bike riding and fixing things around the house, and each fall, I officiate high school football games.

Effort Goes Unrewarded in Buffalo Sabres Shootout Loss

There have been games this season where the Buffalo Sabres have been just putrid and hard to watch.  But, Tuesday night they gave a big effort. Tyler Ennis scored early in the third period to tie the game at 1-1, they went to overtime and finally to shootout.  That's where it all came crashing down in a flaming heap.

My Toughest Thousand Days

People told me it gets better, but I'm not so sure that's the right way to put it because it doesn't ever really get better.  Instead, you learn to cope with it.  You have to.  There is no other choice.

Today marks three years since my wife, Shelley, passed away.  That's more than a thousand days and there's not a day that I don't think about her.  And there's so much I miss about her.

Sabres Pull Off Huge Trade

I've been saying for about the past 8 years or so that if the Buffalo Sabres needed a key goal late in a game to tie it or win it who could they depend on?  NOBODY.  Over the years they've had guys like Pat Lafontaine, Alex Mogilny, Daniel Briere and Chris Drury who would score big time goals.  But for nearly a decade they haven't anybody they could turn to, until now.

Sabres Play Tough, But Still Lose

It certainly wasn't for a lack of shots.  After equaling a franchise record for fewest shots on goal in their game against the Islanders two nights before, the Buffalo Sabres took that many in the first five minutes of the second period Tuesday night against Ottawa.  The Sabres ended up with 21 shots in that period alone, finished with 36 for the game, but still ended up losing 2-1.

Offensively Challenged Buffalo Sabres Fall To The New York Islanders

The Buffalo Sabres tied a franchise low for shots on goal managing only 10 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders.  It wasn't until the Islanders had built a 3-0 lead halfway thru the second period and coach Ted Nolan called a time out that the Sabres finally woke up from their sleepwalk.
