Jim Rome On The Buffalo Bills' Loss

"Buffalo Bills: put that coffee down. Coffee is for closers." That's how this clip embedded below begins.

I have loved Jim Rome's sports talk radio show for years, dating back to when he was a young local radio personality in San Diego at the start of the 1990s. His radio show used to be really heavy on insider jargon, with nicknames for many sports personalities that were cryptic to all but regular listeners. But as he became more popular, and his show became nationally syndicated in 1996 (and he got a second TV show on ESPN in 2003), he toned this down dramatically.

Anyway, embedded below is a 3 minute clip from the start of his ESPN television show ("Jim Rome is Burning") yesterday afternoon, during which he discusses the Buffalo Bills' last second loss to the Patriots on Monday Night Football.
