Bishop ships wings to West Virginia, makes good on bet

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A quickly shipped box of chicken wings found their way from Buffalo to West Virginia Wednesday.

The delicious treats were the high stakes bet between two Episcopal Bishops — William Franklin from Buffalo and Mike Klusmeyer from West Virginia. Although the Bulls lost nearly two weeks ago, Franklin said he only had time to ship them out this past week.

“I said I’d ship him wings from the Anchor Bar if Buffalo lost, after all it is the place where Buffalo Wings, as the whole world now knows them, were born,” Franklin said.

Franklin said he was sad to see UB lose, and he wasn’t alone. Many were disheartened that the Bulls lost a game within their reach. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
