The Boogie Man bids bye-bye as the Nashville Predators bag Bob Boughner in the expansion draft held in Buffalo. You can say Music Town is gunning for BB.
(Special thanks to the late Clip Smith for writing today's TDISH!)

Local news in growing up in Buffalo in the 60's & 70's was very special compared to the dreck that passes for local news today.

PA - always a font of information. This expatriote had no idea Clip Smith was dearly departed!
My thoughts exactly.

If my memory serves me he had just run for Lockport mayor or councilman and then shortly there after was killed.
He was a good guy...his puns were corny as hell...but he seemed to be very nice.

Seriously, the accident occurred as Clip was playing his famous tuba while driving. Serves him right for tooting his own horn.
Wherever he is, the Clipper has to be laughing at that one.
