Buffalo Bills News 
 
There are two very important elements that standout as it pertains to the world we live in. Those two elements are time and location. For the Buffalo Bills, these two elements standout as rumors hit the media world that the organization is looking to upgrade or relocate the Highmark Stadium which is currently owned by Erie County. The lease is said to run through 2023. The Buffalo Bills are currently consulting a firm that helped the Dallas Cowboys build what most people call it “Jerry’s World”. Should the Buffalo Bills relocate or stay in Or hard Park? For more information stay tuned to the Rise Up Right Articles. 
 
The Erie County Comptroller Mark Poloncarz has announced that Bills Mafia will not have to get vaccinated to attend the games. The road to normalcy has been a difficult role but nevertheless this is a step in the right direction. Buffalo Bills stars Cole Beasley and Josh Allen have both spoke out about not receiving the vaccination. Hopefully this will be a step in the right direction that will give people the opportunity to choose without being punished. 
 
Toronto Blue Jays Coverage 
 
The Toronto Blue Jays had a phenomenal home series with the New York Yankees that was super exciting and brought a lot of promise to the City of Buffalo. Even though they lost each game in the three-game homestand, the atmosphere was electric. I had a great time covering Thursday’s game while being in the presence of Josh Allen, Cole Beasley and their families. The Blue Jays got back on winning track by beating the Marlins Tuesday night 2-1. 
 
NBA News 
 
The Atlanta Hawks will face the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Hawks defeated the Bucks in 7 games. Reports are swirling that Ben Simmons might be a movable piece for the Sixers. His play in the series was least to be desired especially in the 4th quarter. 
 
The Phoenix Suns are leading the Western Conference Finals 2-0 as the Suns won Game 2 over the Los Angeles Clippers in dramatic fashion with an inbound alley oop from Jae Crowder to DeAndre Ayton with 0.9 seconds left. Unbelievable. Paul George missed two key free throws that lead to this event. The game ended 104-103. Chris Paul should be back for Game 3 as the “point god” has not played in the series due to having Covid 19.

As a firm believer of unity and positivity I would love to give a special thanks to all the Frontline workers at Harriman Hall UB campus for helping our community get back to some normalcy as these phenomenal workers have helped over a hundred and twenty thousand people get back to some normalcy. Thank you all for your efforts.
