    Default How to be a Buffalo Sports Fan

    1. Suffer through 4 Superbowl losses in a row. But hey, they were AFC champs 4 years in a row!

    2. Tune into CNN and watch your Hall of Fame running back OJ Simpson goes through a really ugly murder trial.


    3. 1999 PLayoffs Bills vs. Titans - Music City Miracle? NOT! Forward Pass


    4. Watch as Brett Hull scores the winning goal to win the Stanley Cup. With his skate in the crease.


    5. Hey, isn't that OJ in the news again....


    6. 2007...NFL season week 1, Donkeys kick FG as time expires, win by 1 point
    NFL season week 5, 'America's Team' kick FG as time expires, win by 1 point


    Let's Go Buffalo!!
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    No real reason to be. The Buffalo Bills went to 4 straight Super Bowls, a feat more than likely to never again see the light of day. That overwhelming achievement in and of itself should be reason enough for any fan, either native to the region or not, to hold his/her head high.

    Think of that, and realise that there are sports franchises out there that have yet to even taste a single winning season, let alone come so close to so many.

    Absolutely. The battles waged between the Bills and the Dolphins during those years was some of the finest football ever played. Being a Miami fan, even I felt a touch of pride when Thurman Thomas was recognised during last night's game at halftime.

    Furthermore, I'd wager that any Dolphin fan present during those years has the utmost respect for the Bills and their accomplishments.

    Thanks Chef. Funny thing about Buffalo. I'm not from there, but have been to a number of games at the Ralph. On Bills - Dolphins games you would be surprised at the number of fins fans there. It seems if you live in Buffalo and for some reason are not a Bills fan...guess who you are a fan of??? Miami! Usually pretty good fans. I made it to a few games at Joe Robbie back in the Bills heyday. Fans were OK except for the guy that threw a beer at me, and I was 3 rows from the top of the stadium! I remember a Fins - Pats game in '94 at Joe Robbie. What a shootout. Marino and Bledsoe both went for over 400 yards. Marino was a stud, glad he made it to the HOF...after Jim Kelly!

    #4: If Hull was going for the puck, he can be all in, as far as I know. Now, if he was planted there waiting for the puck, that is a different story!

    As for being a Buffalo fan, I think you'd have to be a hardcore drinker to survive. Go Bills, they still have a shot in the playoffs!!!! HAAAAhahaha!

    During that year the NHL had a rule that you could not be in the crease at all when attempting a chance on goal. It was a stupid rule and I'm glad they changed it.

    They enforced it all year, and when they needed it most, they failed. That goal should have never counted.

    I was a season ticket holder for the Bills for 9 years, 3 of them being the last 3 Super Bowl years and as hard as it was to lose those games at the time, man did I get to witness some of the greatest football ever played. Watching that no-huddle offense operate was incredible week after week. I agree that we probably won't be seeing the 4 in a row repeated anytime soon if at all. With each passing year it gets harder and harder to keep a team together with free agency etc.
    Signature not currently available. You aren't missing much.

    Sounds like they may be playing a couple of games up in your neck of the woods in the future. Bills to play in Toronto
