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.

A New Way to Lose for the Sabres

Another embarrassing loss for the Buffalo Sabres.  But give them credit for coming up with creative ways to lose.  The Sabres dominated the opening 20 minutes against the Detroit Red Wings Sunday night building a 3-0 lead.  But a much different story after the break.  The Wings needed less than 10 minutes to tie the game and rolled to a 6-4 win.

The Damage That Can Be Done By Social Media

I look at it as not only an eye-opener for a lot of sports fans, but a lesson on how social media can have a negative impact on people in everyday life.  With Twitter, Facebook and all the other platforms available to people these days rumors can be spread almost anonymously and often the target of those rumors is helpless to stop them.

I came across this well-written essay by Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate.  He joined the Lions in free agency last spring after playing four years with the Seattle Seahawks and winning the Super Bowl.  Tate was roasted by Seattle fans on social media after he left and it included a number of false accusations that he clears the air on.

I think it's a good lesson for all of us.

Buffalo Sabres Lose Their 8th Straight Game

I really feel for the fans who pay money to see Buffalo Sabres hockey games  You have to be pretty committed to stomach what's been happening with the team this season.  Tuesday night the Sabres gave up a power play goal, a short handed goal and an even strength goal.  It was enough for the Detroit Red Wings to beat the Sabres 3-1.
