What’s trending: a whole new level of team bonding

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – What’s trending – a T-I-E! For the second year in a row, the Scripps National Spelling Bee ended with co-championships. A thirteen year old from Kansas and a fourteen-year-old from Missouri were declared the winners Thursday night. Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam will share the title.

Before he became the head coach of the Sabres, Dan Bylsma was the head man for the Penguins. He was so close with one staff member in Pittsburgh, he even appeared on a national television show in which she chose a wedding dress. In a clip from TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, Penguins Director of Communications Jennifer Bullano explains that she and Bylsma were so close (Bylsma’s wife even called Jen her husband’s “work wife”), it was only natural to bring him along as she looked for a dress for her big day. They conveniently squeezed the shopping outing into a road trip while they were playing the Rangers.

Set up is underway for Kiss the Summer Hello at Canalside. Kiss 98.5’s annual concert will star Flo Rida, Jordin Sparks, Cody Simpson and more this year. Doors open at 5 pm on Saturday for the show. Tickets are available on the Kiss 98.5 website or at the door.
