Landsharks news coverage in Buffalo

Discussion in 'NLL News and Rumors' started by Michael The Bandit Fan, Jan 7, 2001.

  1. of the 39 seconds lacrosse got on the news tonight at 11:00. 28 seconds were given to talking about how the landsharks are not a skit coming up on saturday night live at 11:30. I taped it so I could see the news when I got home and then I timed it.

    What a way to promote the game. get some media coverage and have them make jokes.

    I think this is just great and the idiots who run this league should continue the good work at let you call a team anything you want. After all how can you not think you are at a major sporting event when the team you are playing is named after an snl skit and their logo looks like jabber jaw.

    all we need now is a 5 team expansion on the west coast with a team in a city that can not support an NFL team. Boy I can see the first east v west championship buffalo bandits 45 LA harry potters (kids love harry potter just put a lax stick in his hand)2. good idea lets have an expansion conference that will be a great championship

  2. From what I glean from the many posts you have made here in such a short period Mike,
    I can only come to one conclusion!

    You're unemployed!

    I never knew that Land Shark was an SNL skit until right now.

    My favourite early MTBF post.

    Most hilarious meltdown I have ever watched a home team suffer......lead the whole game, suffer a scary comeback attempt, ready to run out the clock, or even get closer to ice it safely...........then, hilarious gaffe leads to tie in the dying seconds and then to a double-OT victory!

    I could practically drink the tears of all the fans around me! :D

    If there is one game I attended that I wish I could buy on DVD it’s that game. The funny thing is, 12 year old me attended that game as a neutral observer....who ended up maniacally cheering for Toronto. I had full faith that they’d tie it up in the final seconds once they pulled within 1.

    OMG! Really?!

    It used to go something like this...


    "I wasn't expecting any flowers.... You're that landshark, aren't you?"

    "No I'm not."
    /* Very pregnant pause, then continues... */


    "Ok, hold on." /* opens door */ "Aaaahhhh!"

    I think it was something like "Johnny's buzzing-off" and "polishing his stinger".
    Camp Counselor Walter Matthau comes in and tells the camper bees that "It's normal to buzz-off".
    When he turns out the light, you hear them all buzzing.
