Kudos to Ralph

I'm always willing to tell Ralph Wilson how to spend his money. I've called him cheap on occasion. In tomorrow's column, I'll be advocating an extension for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. But I have to give the Bills' owner credit for his charitable impulses. Wilson should be applauded for donating $2.5 million to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The museum took a big hit when this year's Hall of Fame game, which had been slated for this weekend between the Bears and Rams, was called off due to the lockout. The museum lost $1.5 million in ticket revenue. The community of Canton was hurt as well. The $2.5 million donation from the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation will ease some of that pain and help support construction of the Hall's $27 million "Future 50" Expansion and Renovation Project. Ralph's gift will help fund a new 10,000 square-foot research and preservation center, which will be named after the Buffalo owner.

Now, Ralph, about that offensive tackle ...
