With the football season over, many Buffalonians take to the outdoors for their sports excitement. Sports comedian Jeff Wozer knows ice fishing in the Small Boat Harbor is a common spot for rugged WNYers to relax.  Here’s some of the top things overheard while sitting on ice and waiting to catch fish.

  • “I haven’t been this cold since sitting in the Key Bank Center.”
  • “The perch are rejecting this jigging spoon like Josh McDaniel’s rejected the Colts.”
  • “Not even the fish like Buffalo Wild Wings.”
  • “This stolen Bills’ medical examination tent makes for a great ice fishing shelter.”
  • “I ate so much during the Super Bowl I could play goal for the Buffalo Bandits.”
  • “I’ve caught more perch than the Sabres have wins.”
  • “There are 3 givens in life: death, taxes and anyone with access to a computer must post an NFL mock draft. “
  • “This Subway meatball sub cost more than a Stub Hub Sabres ticket.”
  • “You sure Canalside won’t notice two of its ice bikes missing?”
  • “My hands are colder than a Jerry Sullivan article.”
