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.

3-Goal Second Period Carries Buffalo Sabres Past Toronto Maple Leafs

For the sixth year in a row the Buffalo Sabres won't be going to the playoffs, but it sure felt like a playoff atmosphere Saturday night at KeyBank Center when the Sabres hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs.  And it sounded as if there were as many Leafs fans as Sabres fans in the building with equally loud chants of "Let's Go Buffalo" and "Go Leafs, Go".
