Detroit Lions vs. Buffalo Bills

Hello 1180 NYC Bills fans,

As we all know, the Gulf Coast suffered a huge tragedy this week as a result of Hurricane Katrina blowing through the South Eastern United States. Your NYCBBB staff is in talks with the Buffalo Bills organization and various Bills Backers Chapters around the country, all determining what we can do to help. Being in NYC, many of our members were on the flip side of tragedy almost four years ago, so now it’s our turn to help our fellow Americans. We’ll have more info for you shortly, if you have any ideas please let me know.

Lions @ Bills
The Lions come to Orchard Park tomorrow night to battle our Buffalo Bills in the final pre-season game of the season. Coach Mularkey has said that starters will get a lot of playing time, so expect to see JP and company in there for at least a quarter, if not more. McFadden’s will be televising the game on Sunday afternoon from 2-5pm. Since its Labor Day Weekend and we don’t expect a big crowd, no specials will be offered. Regardless, the game will be on so feel free to head down there, I know a couple of you will be there for it.

Calico’s RSVP
Starting this Tuesday at 12:00 noon you’ll be able to reserve seats at Calico Jacks for that Sunday’s Bills game, this Tuesday’s being for the Bills/Texans game on Sept 11. Again, you are only allowed to reserve for up to 8 people and ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR PARTY MUST ARRIVE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE KICKOFF. If you are not in your seats at this time, they will be given away to those on a waiting list. I can’t stress this enough, so if you have reservations, be there at least 20-30 minutes before kickoff. Calico’s phone # – 212.557.4300

Jets @ Bills
It appears that we’ll be able to make the tour of Ralph Wilson Stadium for the Bills/Jets weekend in Buffalo happen after all. If you’re still interested in purchasing tickets for this game, please email Chris at the Bills ASAP:

Member Needs Ticket Help for Opener
“I have single seats in sections 110 (row 5) and 114 (row17), and I am looking to get another single in one of the sections in an exchange. My guess is that someone else in NYCBBB is in the same predicament, as the Ticketmaster site was offering only single tickets in good sections at the time of the special pre-sale on July 16.” If you can help, please email:

Hope everybody enjoys their holiday weekend! Next time you hear from us, we’ll be readying for the opening game of the 2005 Buffalo Bills Season!!!
