Peter King reports in Sports Illustrated that Buffalo Bills safety Bryan Scott bikes to work, and for reasons we can applaud:

"Buffalo safety Bryan Scott rides his bike 2.5 miles to work each day. In Buffalo. Still did it all last week, even as the temperatures dipped into the low 30s. 'I guess I'm spearheading the 'green' initiative for the Bills,' he said. 'I'll be riding 'til the first snowfall. There's been some mornings where it's been 34, 35 degrees, but I enjoy the scenery, and it makes me feel like I'm doing a little good. There's only one Planet Earth. We've got to take care of it.'

"Good for him, especially since his car is a Cadillac Escalade (in-town gas mileage: 12 mpg)."

Looks like a nice bike, too.  (Not sure if that Esplanade is his.) 

Thanks to Rob Perks for passing this along.  For my previous post on greening professional sports, go here.
