Happy 4th and Buffalo Bills Tailgate Info

Hello 960 Buffalo Bills fans!

Tailgate coordinator Kevin here wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July! The NYCBBB staff hopes everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend. It’s an extra special weekend for us because our very own Matt (Kabel) and Nicole will be getting married on Monday. Feel free to send him well wishes and newlywed advice at mattk at nycbbb.com.

News around the NFL and especially One Bills Drive has been rather slow, but thinking about all the BBQs happening this weekend has got me fired up for some tailgating this season! We have a number a great events planned this season and I wanted to share them with you in enough time to plan your schedules accordingly.

Billsdaily.com is reporting the that individual game tickets will go on sale at 9am on July 16th. They also announced that only single seats remain for the first three of the eight home games. Those games include the opener against Houston, the Sept. 25th battle with Atlanta and the annual rival game with Miami on October 9th. Tickets will be available at the official Bills website, Ticketmaster, by phone at 1-877-BB-Ticks, at the stadium, or the Rochester ticket office. I’ve also heard a rumor that if you register at the official Bills Backers website before July 9th, you’ll receive the password for a special two-hour advance sale the morning individual sales open (7:00-9:00 AM July 16th).

First and foremost, your attendance is officially requested at Lot 16, Pole C of the Meadowlands on January 1st, 2006 to celebrate the final regular season game before the Bills play their first playoff game in…well too many years! We got lots of great ideas planned, including a New Years Eve party at Tracks Raw Bar and Grill. If you have any requests or suggestions for the tailgate (besides water coolers with Bloody Marys and Mimosas, I’ve got that covered) please feel free to reply to this email. I suggest looking for tickets early, since they are traditionally hard to come by.

Once again we are planning a trip to the “Motherland” to watch the Jets and the Bills on Oct 16th. Everyone had a great time last year with a Stadium tour, Happy Hour meet and greet with former players, and the Bills kicking the stuffing out of the Jets. This year plans to be just as much fun. We have also reserved a block of tickets, so if you are interested email Chris at the Bills:

Once again, reply to this email with any thoughts or suggestions. Keep in mind this is a great time to invite your NYC friends (including Jets fans) to Buffalo to show them what a wonderful city most of us still call home.

The Oct. 9 game against the Dolphins has been dubbed “Bills Backers Weekend” by the Bills, and there are a number of events scheduled all weekend long.

Also, I will be at the home opener (Sept. 11th) and the Chiefs game (Nov. 13) tailgating with Kenny and the Pinto so if you will also be there feel free to stop by. It’s always great to see familiar faces.

This year, the Oct. 2nd game in New Orleans and the Nov. 11th game in San Diego have gathered the attention of Bills Backers from around the country. If you are interested in attending either of these games, let me know and I will try to put you touch with folks who know about tickets, Bills Backers events, etc.

That’s all from me. Have a great weekend and keep in mind training camp opens in 72 days!
