Entrepreneur
    (March 27, 1951- )
    Born in Carbondale, Pennsylvania
    Founder of the East Resources oil drilling company.
    Principal owner of the Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Bandits, and Rochester Americans franchises
    Some hockey pundits felt his bid for the Sabres was solely approved in order to prevent Jim Balsillie from purchasing the team and relocating it to Hamilton, Ontario.
    He allowed Sabres general manager Darcy Regier to spend foolishly and overpay free agents in order to make his mark on the team.
    He slapped the Sabres franchise with lofty expectations at his introductory press conference when he stated 'The Sabres sole reason of existence is to win the Stanley Cup.'
    He's been criticized for some of his decision making in the Sabres hockey operations.
    He fired longtime head coach Lindy Ruff seventeen games into the 2012-13 season.
    He founded the East Resources drilling company with his own money.
    His daughter Jessica is a professional tennis player.
    Unlike the Sabres previous ownership regimes, he is willing to spend money to make his team a Stanley Cup contender.
    Shortly after purchasing the Sabres, he was successful in acquiring the Rochester Americans and returned the two clubs to an affiliation agreement.
    He successfully reunited the Sabres famed 'French Connection Line' one final time, prior to the death of Rick Martin.
    He's been considered approachable and easy to access, which is a stark contrast to previous owners John Rigas and Tom Golisano.
    He donated $102 million to finance construction of an ice hockey rink at his alma mater, Penn State.
    He financed the construction of the redevelopment of Buffalo's waterfront district.
