by Jeff Wozer, Buffalo Sports Page Humorist

The Buffalo History Museum has just opened a new exhibit. It’s called Icons, the Makers and Moments of Buffalo Sports.  But our sports comedian, Jeff Wozer, found some Buffalo sports memorabilia that didn’t make the cut.

• War Memorial Stadium’s Taxidermic Rat Collection

• Great Bills’ Moments with Vince Ferragamo

• Rick Jeanneret’s Turtleneck Collection

• The What-It’s-Like-to-Get-Speared-in-the-Spleen-by-Jerry-Korab Virtual Reality Booth

• The Mike Mularkey Reflecting Pool

• Things Found Stuck to the Bottom of the Aud’s Orange Seats

• From High School to the NHL: The Fake IDs Tom Barrasso Used to Get Inside Mulligan’s Brick   Bar

• Diorama of Dick Jauron’s office.

• The Greatest Sabres Named Ville in IMAX

• Ruben Brown’s Used Mouthguard Collection

• Danny Gare’s 1979 Airline Window Seat Pictures During a Flight to Hartford

• The Greatest Long Snappers in Bills History narrated by Meteorologist Don Paul
