Buffalo is the definition of "used to".
Buffalo used to be cool.
It used to be semi-prosperous.
It used to be respectable.
It used to be inhabitable.
I'm not saying that if Scott Norwood makes that kick anything changes, but it wouldn't have made things worse.
The blue-collar factories and steel industry are, for the most part, long dead.
The political situation in Buffalo is, for lack of better words, a filthy stinking cesspool of overspending, patronage, and pork.
The inner city is a wasteland of crime, poverty, drugs. They could have saved it, revitalized the whole damn thing, but instead of building the University Center at Buffalo actually IN Buffalo, they built it in the suburbs.
I'm not going to go into the weather. Let's leave it at: when you can't remember what spring feels like, you know you're in Buffalo.
Stewardess: Due a a freak blizzard in May, we cannot take off. Enjoy Buffalo.
Passenger: Buffalo?! What a shithole...
A drinking city with a football problem. Buffalo is known for the overwhelming number of bars per square mile, the ever changing weather conditions, and it's diehard football and hockey fans who always believe that "this season this will be the season we go all the way"! It might have it's political havoc, an incredibly high crime rate, and a failing economy, but Buffalonians have an unexplainable bond to each other and the city. Buffalo is also widely recognized for being the biggest small town in America. Everyone knows everyone who knows everyone. This city may have it's faults but it is a great place to be during any holiday(s).
Drunk driving is a sport in Buffalo.
No matter where they travel in the world, a Buffalonian will run into other Buffalonians.
Is a cesspool of a city located in Western New York that has long been a constant drain on New York State for decades. Forbes Magazine summed it best when they said “Buffalo has long been synonymous with city-in-decline” when they named Buffalo, which easily could be called Americas Calcutta, as one of “America’s Fastest-Dying City.” This city has little to offer unless you’re into vacant homes or you’re a fan of a losing NFL team. Then you have hit the jackpot as Buffalo’s vacant housing rate is the highest in New York and trails only Detroit and New Orleans.
The only thing that temporarily seems to stop Buffalo’s exploding population decline is that every September thousands of average students across New York come to Buffalo’s mediocre and irrelevant private and SUNY colleges and universities where most experience being a victim of crime for the first time.
Buffalo’s greatest claim to fame is the mixing some rancid disgusting sauce with fried fatty chicken wings. The popularity of this food is evident by the gigantic size of the population. Visiting any mall is like the running of the bulls in Pamplona as Buffalonians waddle and wheeze to the food court or Lane Bryant.
You will find one good thing about Buffalo. You will really appreciate what you have back at home once leave.
Sam: “I m driving from Toronto to New York; I have to go through Buffahole. Can I borrow your body armor?”
Derek: "Good luck, last time I drove through Buffalo I was carjacked"
Buffalo is a city in upstate New York that has something for everyone: shopping, partying, parks, people, art festivals, snow in the winter, beautiful seasons, architectural treasures, restaurants of every kind, and affordable housing. We have our share of crooked politicians, but, hey, tell me some place that does not?
Come on over to the city of good neighbors and we'll show you around!

A drinking game in which you can only drink alchohol with your non-dominant hand and if another player sees you drinking with your dominant hand, they can call buffalo on you and you must finish your drink as quickly as possible.
Dick was drinking with his dominant hand and I called buffalo on him so he downed it.
A city everyone likes to hate on yet once you leave you miss it. Once you leave you don't eat for atleast a month because there is no good food except in Buffalo. See Mighty Taco Tim Hortons
I moved from Buffalo for Charlotte and I lost 20 pounds.
a once prosperous city filled with good jobs for everyone. in fact, college wasn't even necessary, cause there were jobs for everyone that paid pretty well. however, those jobs have all been shipped to mexico, china, thailand, taiwan and india among other places where workers are slaved for pennies a day that can never buy them any of the products they make. and, of course, the prices aren't really going down. But the city is, thanks to the apathy of a neo-con federal government, which could care less about the cities that built america, a state government that worries only about the so-called troubles of new york city, a city government that takes the little bit of federal and state money and pockets it into their own payraises and doesnt even attempt to solve problem, and a county government bureaucracy that only works part-time, gets paid more than double the salary of the avergae full-time worker in america, has no sense of creative thought, overstaffs itself and expects others to get rid of their so called patronage when they wont get rid of theirs. basically the great city has been fucked over.
outsourcing + federal neo-cons such as tom delay who cut off any aid + state interests + corrupt city gov't + county gov't shithole = the destruction of buffalo
