Hello all 2,000+ NYC Bills Fans:
It’s that time of the year again. No, not the NFL Draft, but when we realize it’s been another year of playoff-less Bills football. 16 years ago we started this thing on 42nd and 2nd in midtown (actually the first gathering when we traded for Drew Bledsoe was on the Upper East Side), and since then we’ve gotten married, had kids, switched careers. Matt and I would joke about the “old guys”, now we are those guys.
Hell, even the length of time we’ve been running NYCBBB has grown old enough to start driving a car in Western NY. After the Sabres debacle of last week you have to hope the Pegulas are trending upward on the learning curve of running pro franchises. It was a good move to bring in a PR guy as showing off your disastrous front office through leaks and cringe-worthy press conferences won’t strike confidence in us fans. Hopefully more is being done behind the scenes, realizing the Russ Brandon-esque popular marketing moves may be fun for fans but don’t translate into wins on the field.
That said (again), let’s talk NFL Draft. Who the hell has the final call on the 10th overall pick – GM Doug Whaley, Coach Sean McDermott or the Pegulas? Sounds like the Bills are exploring trading up or down, personally I doubt they take a QB early and go defense instead to work in McDermott’s system. Come join us this Thursday and find out!
We’ll offer these two options both Thursday 4/27 and Friday 4/28 from 7-11PM:
1) Free wristband good for $3 domestic AND import drafts, including Labatt Blue (we have a bunch of new imports and micro-brews–we actually added 5 draft lines) AND half priced mixed drinks (top shelf)
2) Pay $15 at the door, good for unlimited chicken wings (by the order) and also receive the same drink special above ($3 all drafts, half priced top shelf mixed drinks)
On Saturday we’ll do our standard special:
We’ll see you there!
2017 NY/NJ Games
Looks like the Bills are opening up the season against the Jets at home, and then play here for a Thursday night game. Home Openers are tough to plan for due to limited tickets, but we’ll plan a tailgate for the game here as always.
2018 Winter Classic
Rumor has it the Sabres will take on the Rangers at Citi Field for the Winter Classic on New Year’s Day. It’s too bad there are no bars over there for us to meet up at. Oh wait, McFadden’s has a massive pub IN the stadium! We’ve already chatted, and once things are confirmed we’ll totally be planning a Sabres event around that. Details to come.
LET’S GO BUFFALO!!
Matt “Talkin’ proud and really hope our NYC losing streak won’t grow old enough to vote” Kabel
