A busy week of sports in Buffalo, as well as in both the NHL and NBA.

The Buffalo Sabres' coaching search has finally come to an end! The Sabres hire former defenseman Phil Housley after nearly two months of searching and waiting for candidates for the job.

The Stanley Cup Final has come to an end with the Pittsburgh Penguins winning their second consecutive championship and fifth Stanley Cup in franchise history.

In the NBA, the Golden State Warriors are back on top of the basketball world after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers for their second championship in three years.

As for the Buffalo Bills, they wrapped up mandatory minicamp on Thursday and will be off until training camp starts on July 27th from St. John Fisher College.

As we do at the end of every week, it's now time to check out some of the best tweets and texts from you, the listeners!

Let's do this:

No royal blue:

It's the Sabres, so they do the opposite of what fans want. Maybe we should all hope for other things to get what we really want... ------

Seriously could care less if they wore burlap bags. Win a freaking cup.
