“It’s All Over, Clap Clap Clapclapclap!” was the cheer going up from Little Buffalo with about 8 minutes left in the game yesterday. With an unbelievable performance by the defense, the Bills thoroughly squished the Fish on their home field in the searing heat. Gone were the memories of last years 4th quarter collapse, this team clearly got stronger and more confident as the game went on. Truth be told, the moment I truly knew the game was over was when the Calico Jacks crowd when from booing Mike Mularkey to cheering him. As Phil points out in his excellent article, Mularkey did more for the Bills this week than he had the previous two seasons.
Since he is a much better writer than I am, I will leave the recap to Phil and his weekly feature “This Week at Calico Jack’s…”
Also, Phil is planning to do a future column about Bills fans’ superstitions, and would like to get your input.
Once again, for those of you that attended yesterday, we need to hear your feedback. Had a great time? Terrible time? Let us know!
3rd Annual Buffalo Road Trip
This Sunday will mark our 3rd trip to the Motherland to watch the Bills stomp the Jets. Like last year, the tailgate is going to be held in a private lot off of 20A/Big Tree Road. We’ll be located next to Kenny Johnson’s Pinto tailgate in Lot 1 – Pole 5 on the other side of the tree line. The festivities officially start at 8am, but the private lot we’re in opens before the main lot we’ll most likely be there even earlier than that! We’ll have 2 kegs of Blue Light and some special coolers with Bloody Marys and Mimosas which were a huge hit at our last tailgate so get there early if you want some. We’re going to charge $5 per cup to cover the cost of the beer and drinks. We’ll also have plenty of grill space, so feel free to bring some food to throw on there. Here’s a map, we’ll be in the white area directly to the right of Kenny’s tailgate (its pole 5, NOT 6,) so if you find him, you’ll find us!
As a reminder, this game will mark Kenny’s 200th straight Bills game and our friend Michelle Girardi will be there with some new friends from NFL Films to check out the scene. Don’t miss it! Also, if you’re planning on tailgating with us, please let me know by replying to this email.
Both bars WILL be showing the game next week, so if you can’t make it up to Buffalo be sure to come out and support the team with your fellow fans!
Despite the stellar play of the Bills this week you didn’t really think I’d miss an opportunity to highlight the Sabres, did you? The team plays it’s first preseason game (already? Yup!) against the Leafs in Toronto and here’s hoping they follow the Bills lead and destroy their main rival. This year we have started up a new email for the Sabres fans, so if you are interested please head to our homepage and sign up or just email and let me know.
Finally, I hear that Culpepper got sacked again on his way to get coffee this morning. Poor guy.
