This is it, Buffalo Bills fans. The 2008 NFL regular season is a half-hour from beginning, and the Buffalo Bills are on the field and all set to take on the visiting Seattle Seahawks in each team's season opener. Playoffs? The Bills are daring to dream - and predict - and the push for the playoffs starts today in a must-win home opener.
Fortune is on my side this day, as I'll be making the trip up to The Ralph to take this game in live along with 70,000+ more of my Bills brethren. For the folks who'll be cheering on from the comfort of your own homes (or a friend's home, or a bar, etc.), this open thread is for you. This is the only spot you need to talk about the game live as it happens. If you don't have an SB Nation account, create one (it's free) and hammer out a few comments during the game.
Enjoy opening day, folks. We'll have a full game recap up later on this evening (once I get back from The Ralph), and the DVR is set, so plan on a couple of film sessions this week as well. Get your game face on, grab your choice adult beverage (if you're of age) and snackage, and park yourselves. NFL football is back. GO BILLS!
