For Bills fans, Super Bowl LII turned out to be a glorious, bountiful, smorgasbord of schadenfreude, watching the New England Patriots lose a heartbreaker to the high-flying underdog Philadelphia Eagles. Nick Foles played the foil and the game of his life; believing in unicorns, tossing up rainbows, witnessing his receivers defy gravity and making a series of miracle ca…

The Buffalo Bills lost a historically frustrating game Sunday in the first round of the playoffs that left the team’s fans bewildered and aggravated, and yet already looking forward to next year. But was it the end of the season, or the beginning of something great? There is no need to rehash all of the issues with the loss, coaching, players, officiating, or even th…

The year of “Good Lord!” 2017 went out with a tremendous bang sometime just before 5 p.m. EST on Sunday when all hell simultaneously broke loose across Buffalo and wherever Bills fans amassed. Andy Dalton hit something named Boyd for an immaculate TD reception on fourth and forever. Chances are you were stampeded by friends, relatives – and depending on where you wer…

In another endless series of appalling decisions and blatant favoritism, The Patriot Act was enacted in Gillette Stadium and thrust on the helpless and hapless Buffalo Bills and their faithful fans on Christmas Eve. The Patriot Act is tiresome. It defies logic. It is not right. It is irrefutable. It is bad for the country. And it is turning people away from the game.…

This will be the last time for awhile that Bills Fans will have the privilege to celebrate Fred Ex, and we shouldn’t take it lightly. Fred Jackson is Buffalo. You wouldn’t recognize him on the national stage and yet he is as good or better than anyone on it. He wasn’t given a chance but then took it anyway. He’s the Bills’ third-leading rusher behind you-know-who Nos…

On a wintry day in which they would likely close all schools, the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts played an NFL game for the ages in what looked like inside a snow globe. And just when the Bills season needed a revival, under the worst conditions imaginable, most all ye faithful did indeed come… and left joyful and triumphant. The Bills’ season, and this game, w…

It finally appears as though our worst fears have been realized. Again. The dreaded Half Tank. I’m not sure why anyone using any definition of tank would want such a thing. A half tank of gas gets you only halfway. Half a military or fish tank is worthless. "Shark Tank" is overrated. Tank tops are awesome, but only on less than one-tenth of the population. Granted…

Bills

It’s almost December, five meaningful games remain, but the return of the '60s or '90s Cold War has left Bills fans bone-chillingly numb; and frosty to each other, even after a hotly contested huge road win. It’s a QB controversy like no other. No longer Tyrod vs. Peterman but Tyrod vs. The Fans — because there really isn’t anyone else to put in his place. First the …

The late great Bills announcer Van Miller coined the iconic phrase "fandemonium" to describe the raucous, rabid atmosphere at Rich Stadium/the Ralph/New Era Field. And while earlier this season it was the perfect description for the upstart 2017 Bills, by Thanksgiving week there is no joy in Mudville anymore. Buffalo fans have left fandemonium and entered fandelirium…

Joe Fan: I can’t believe they did it! Peterman! There is a God! Bill Fan: God hates the Bills. The defense parted like the Red Sea two straight games! They gave up 8,511 yards rushing so they bench the QB?! Jill Fan: Tyrod has faults, Lord knows, but he has no help. Joe Fan: He never throws with anticipation! Bill Fan: He’s anticipating getting his ribs broken!…

After the shellacking the Bills took against the Jets last Thursday, the team and its fans are regrouping and re-evaluating this most topsy-turvy NFL season. And on Election Day — because no one will actually be out voting — it seems like a good time to look at the progress of our local leaders and representatives.  COACHING Freshman Sen. Sean McDermott and new Gov. Bran…

Well, that was embarrassing. The Buffalo Bills, in their beautiful all whites, got gang-greened on national television in the NFL Thursday Night color rush game. The Bills were on a kimmelweck roll after consecutive impressive victories. The pregame got fans nervous, like relative few games have this century. The Bills, coming off a Halloween Week thrashing of the spook…

I know I always say this, but … this may be the one. I’m serious. When there is a change in leadership, a fan’s relationship with his or her team is like meeting a new girl or guy. The head coach or general manager is like hooking up with someone at a party or blind date. You spend spring and summer together in hope it blossoms into true love. Rarely – but like right…

Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. This kind of comeback victory never happens to us. Of course, for sports fans in general, and Bills fans in particular, stuff that “never happens” quite often does. Fans have short, defective, handy memories. We take information from the press, sports radio, social media and right out of our posteriors. We are all p…
