The Punisher’s second season begins with Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) grabbing a beer at a dive bar in some nondescript Michigan town.,In the first three episodes of its second season, The Punisher delivers some of the best television the soon-to-be-discontinued Marvel-Netflix enterprise has made in years.,Granted, the Punisher was always going to be a tricky character to adapt to the screen: The show’s first season was delayed in 2017 after the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 59 people.,Even so, The Punisher deserves credit for its initial conceit: The violence was there, but it was expressed through the lens of Frank, Billy, and other characters’ service in the military and the displacement they all felt returning home without any resources to start their postwar lives.,So while The Punisher offered some good through two seasons—namely, impressive fight scenes, an empathetic approach to veterans, and a nuanced lead performance by Bernthal—its presumed cancellation on Netflix isn’t just strategic cost-cutting by a company that knows it can’t compete with Disney’s impending Marvel roster.

Even for the buffalo wing sauce, we use Frank's Red Hot but we use a lot of other ingredients in there to kind of add to the flavor.",The Buffa-Blues are "super crispy" wings tossed in both buffalo and blue cheese sauce, creating a wing that is perfectly coated in everyone's favorite wing side sauce.,Just don't be surprised if you still find yourself craving the tang of their house barbecue sauce or the satisfying feeling of a wing evenly coated in buffalo sauce and blue cheese without having to give it a single dunk.,Whether sitting at the bar and sampling beers or having a nice sit-down meal with friends or family, guests can choose between a variety of wing flavors, including Buffalo New York Style, Garlic Parmesan, Sweet Chili Glaze and their new Maple BBQ, which owner Shane Nunes said is already their most popular.,The combination of maple and barbecue blends together perfectly and each wings is generously coated with this magnificent sauce, creating that rare flavor that can stand on its own without any assistance from blue cheese or ranch dressing...though it certainly still adds to it.

Waterford — Frank and Sheila Beneski are the first family of high school basketball in Connecticut, the husband-wife duo who sees hundreds of games every season and whose presence fortified the big-game feel last weekend at the Francis X. Sweeney Fieldhouse.,As in: There are an appreciable number of kids throughout the state that decided to forgo the remainder of high school careers to attend a prep school somewhere.,Sad that those kids and their families can't experience what the folks inside the "X" did Saturday: high school sports the way they were intended to be played and portrayed.,I get that kids attend prep school — and forgo high school — for reasons beyond sports.,And the idea that it dupes parents and robs kids of the high school sports experience?

In their first season in Indianapolis, head coach Frank Reich, left, and offensive coordinator and Jamestown native Nick Sirianni have guided the Colts into the playoffs.,Father Fran, a member of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, coached Southwestern High School from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s; brother Mike is the head coach at Washington & Jefferson College where he has compiled one of the best winning percentages in the NCAA; and brother Jay coached Southwestern to a pair of New York State Public High School Athletic Association championships in 2008 and 2009.,Once the youngest Sirianni arrived at the University of Mount Union, he played for Larry Kehres, who guided the Purple Raiders to 11 national championships in his career.,Upon his graduation, Sirianni began his climb up the coaching ranks with stops at Mount Union, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Kansas Chiefs and the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, before joining Reich’s staff in Indianapolis last February.,“One of the reasons I’m in the position I’m in now is because of the successful coaches I’ve been around, starting with growing up in a coach’s house, learning how to coach with my brothers, and then, obviously, playing for the most successful coach in NCAA football history in Larry Kehres,” he told The Post-Journal last October.
