Cheektowaga Mentioned as “Cheektavegas” Live On ESPN [WATCH]
The new professional football league, the XFL (which was re-launched after a 19-year hiatus) kicked off its second weekend of games on Saturday and much to the surprise of Western New Yorker's watching, they heard a familiar term on live TV.
ESPN's Steve Levy was broadcasting the game between the New York Guardians and D.C. Defenders and in-between a play he made a "Cheektavegas" reference.
The reference was for offensive lineman John Kling -- a Cheektowaga native and Depew High School graduate. Kling also went to college at UB.
