buffalo stance

This is totally unverifiable and disagrees with wikipedia, but I seem to recall the Pop-Up Video (a far more reliable source in these matters) for Nenah Cherry’s 1989 hit “Buffalo Stance” defining it similarly to the top finding on urbandictionary.com:

To stand with your arms tighly crossed looking over to side at somebody. This comes from the pose struck by Bruce Smith of the Buffalo Bills in the late 1980’s
Run Dmc often posed in a “Buffalo Stance”

What do you think, Bruce? Those arms don’t look too tightly crossed to me.

I’m thinking, no moneyman can win my love. It’s sweetness that I’m thinking of.

I volunteer with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Erie County and am a big sister to a sweet 11-year old girl in Buffalo. I’ve been thinking about what I could possibly bring back for her from Spain as a souvenir that she would be sure to love. It was a candy store in Salamanca that first gave me the idea. Spanish candy, of course! To first try them out for myself to see if they were any good, I bought the candy above, lacasitos. They seem like a Spanish version of M&Ms. I recalled a time when I was younger when my aunt went to Montreal and brought back Smarties for my sister and I, only they weren’t Smarties as we know and love them in the US, they were chocolate! I remember thinking at the time that they were the coolest thing ever. Inspired by both the cute candy store and my aunt, I’m going to see if Spanish candy has the same effect on my little sister that Canadian candy had on me when I was younger.
