Chance encounter leads to surprise for Bills fans from Micah Hyde

Throughout the season, The Buffalo News has asked fans to share with us their interactions with Bills players in their own words.

Ian Goodenough and his father are Bills fans from Delaware. Goodenough's father grew up in Buffalo and he raised his son to be a Bills fan. The two made the trip to Jacksonville for the Bills' playoff game and had a chance encounter the night before. Ian picks up the story from here:

My dad and I were in Jacksonville for playoff weekend out at the bars the night before and struck up conversation with a couple of women, one of which we found out later was Hyde's fiancee, Amanda.

We did a round of shots, talked for 20 or 30 minutes about being Bills fans and this year's team. Before we left, Amanda asked me to put my dad's address in her phone and this week he received some signed items from Micah.

He sent a signed hat and picture for each of us in addition to a signed mini Bills helmet.
