Word of the Day - Drinking City with a Football Problem

Apparently Buffalo is a drinking city with a football problem. While the sole definition for today's Word of the Day disparages the Buffalo Bills, it's not our official policy at City Dictionary to weigh in on subjective issues in sports. However, we do appreciate the self-deprecating humor and the insight the expression gives us. Not that it says anything definitively, but it might prompt us to delve deeper into Buffalo's unique language and culture. Before City Dictionary users got a hold of the Buffalo Dictionary, I didn't know about the city's Irish and Catholic heritage, or about the multicultural Upper West Side. Oh, and neither did I know that a single name (Tonawanda) could used for so many different adjacent towns, cities, and natural features.

This is all great stuff.
