Why I'm a Bills fan.



Kudos to LaFemmeNiBuffalo for the extremely touching FanPost Why this season is special for me.  I've got to admit it brought a tear to my eye and unfortunately I was unable to post a reply.  But it got me to thinking about why I became a Bills fan and I thought it would be a great idea for everyone to share how we all became members of the same club- "Misery loves company"- LOL.  So here's my story and you can post yours, also:

Grew up in northern NY (Giants and Orangemen country). I rooted for the LA Rams because they had the cool horns on the helment.  Then Larry Csonka (from the Orange) was drafted by the Miami Dolphins and I rooted for them until he left for the WFL.  During that time frame I was going to UB and went to a Dolphins-Bills game rooting for Csonk and the gang (I loved how the Bills fans were so passionate for the team).  When Csonk bolted for the WFL, I was in limbo for awhile.  I didn't become a Bills fan right away because I couldn't stand OJ Simpson since he was from USC and I liked UCLA.  Once OJ became a 49er, I jumped on the Bills bandwagon and have been with them ever since. Good times (Chuck Knox and Marv Levy eras) and bad times (Kay Stephenson and the 2000s).  Now that it's in my blood I'll never leave.

What's your story?   

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
