Hello all you 647 Bills Fans (6 new ones!),
I am 100 pages into Tim Russert’s new book Big Russ and Me, and am enjoying it. I think all of us could relate to Russert’s childhood in one way or another as he talks about growing up in South Buffalo, the Broadway Market, Crystal Beach, the OLV Cathedral, Fish Fries at Hoaks, and Buffalo’s most influential person of the 20th Century, Fr. Baker. I’ll let you know more when I finish it. Please visit his website for more information www.bigrussandme.com
Last year we showed the Houston Comeback game at McFadden’s and had a drink special to go along with it. Please let me know if you have any classic games on tape (NOT SUPER BOWLS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!) or if there is a game you’d love to see. We’d like to have a Second Annual Bills Classic Game Night at McFadden’s in the near future!
Trip to Buffalo for the Jets Game
WOW, I have over 30 email addresses from you guys and 6 from our Washington DC Backers that want to go on a pilgrimage to our Holy Land for the Bills/Jets game on November 7th. If you haven’t emailed me with interest, please do so.

I was going through old boxes this weekend and came across my Bills memorabilia from years ago. My girlfriend said to me “Boy, you really HAVE been a Bills fan since you were a kid”…I turned to her and said “Since I was in the womb Nicole, since I was in the womb”
