Its Saturday morning and as usual I grab coffee and a marb and sit down to Bills.com and Rumblings to keep my Bills fix rolling. It is so refreshing when the Team is winning, not squabbling and as a fan I can read about football without all the melodrama that periodically occurs often in sports. The team this year from the top down exudes beyond all else a great sense of professionalism and downright joy. Come to think about it the same also applies to Sabres.
As an old fan ( sort off remember watching Lamonica and Kemp & co.) and living 90% of my life in Buffalo our Team(s) have always been a very important aspect of my "civic" sense. Mondays are just lousy after a loss. The week flies by awaiting the next game when we are winning. I think back to the 90's. Was at the Raiders playoff game and was one of those who turned off the tv during the Houston comeback.... so happened that the first SB was on and the others right around my Anniversary ( needless to say they coulda been better nights ), remember OJ - beating Miami and losing to Cinci. As we all do - or we wouldnt be on this site, we love football and our home team. They represent us like gladiators from old.
The other day I saw a link about Buffalo's fans and our team that imo was about the best article yet . And this morning I clicked on Bills.com and saw something that left me with a very good feeling for these guys who play for our team. I hope someone (in,from) Bills stops in to read this because,
I want to say Thank You Bills for all the things outside of football you do for our community. Players have always had charities and events locally, The posting at Bills.com about the guys at Kleinhans with the kids was great. The best part was the smiles from the players as they took part. In many ways our players truly are people looked up to by the children. Thank you for taking your time in the hospitals, schools and events where they can interact with you.
To the Rumblers - thank you for a terrific website. To Mr. Wilson, Thank you for keeping our team here. Once again to the Players who were not born here and come here to play, Thanks for this years great beginning and for simply being class acts on and off the field.
