Dale Mussen

I've been doing this radio thing for over 35 years now. I've been a part of the 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.

Matt Kenseth Wins at Pocono When Leaders Run Out of Gas

It was a fuel-mileage race that a number of drivers gambled on and lost including Joey Logano, who led 97 of 160 laps but finished 12th when he ran out gas with three laps to go.  Kyle Busch inherited the lead, but instead of winning his fourth straight race he ran out of gas too and didn't even make it back to the finish line.  The gas tank of Martin Truex, Jr. went dry too.

Buffalo Bills Training Camp Underway, Rex Ryan Era Begins

If efficiency is any gauge of the prospects of a pro football team, the Buffalo Bills are off to a good start.  Day One of the Rex Ryan era was scheduled for a morning workout from 10 am to 12 noon.  The workout began at exactly 10 o'clock and ended at exactly 12 noon.  And in that two hours the Bills split up into various units for drills, then came together for the final 45 minutes to work 11 on 11.  And not a minute was wasted.
