Circling the Wagons

That’s right folks . . .
The Buffalo Bills circled the wagons on Sunday, yessiree.
Which meant that it wasn’t such a good day for these boys. Not a good day at all.
And yeah–that’s the view from our seats. Nothing like being able to actually hear the players, but I digress. While it was a sad day for Patriots Nation, it was, indeed, a fantastic day for Idiot Nation (thanks Mr. Rockstar for giving me a name for y’all).
Yes–I’m not dressed in Bills or Patriots gear, but that was on purpose. I was trying to stay in fully neutral territory; mission accomplished. But my sister and b-i-l weren’t so neutral . . .
No sir–they fully embraced their surroundings (I think the stories about crazy Bills fans had them convinced that the prudent and safe thing to do was to root for the home team). But Ralph Wilson Stadium did them no harm.
Of course, they didn’t go all out like this gentleman did, but that’s okay. Maybe next game?
While the game started off slowly with some questionable players on the field . . .
. . . it soon turned into a nail-biter.
My poor Mr. lost his voice singing his heart out . . . HEEAAEEAAY . . . HEEAAEEAAY . . . LET’S GO BUFFALO! . . . LET’S GO BUFFALO! And then he found himself looking at this. And memories of Wide Right came flooding back. Could this time be different? Could the Bills really end a 15-game losing streak?!
Oh yes they could!!!! And there’s Fred Jackson’s victory lap to prove it . . .
It was truly a moment. Truly. We stayed a while to soak it in. My Mr. had been waiting a looooooong time for that, and I was happy to oblige.
Of course, my Mr. wasn’t the only one celebrating . . .
Nope. Pauly D got in on the action too . . .
As did Deenie the Magic Maker . . . go ahead and try to wipe that smile off his face!
Overall, great times. Even for those in our crew that were routing for the Brady Bunch.
So there you have it. The Bills are #1 in the AFC East. Alone at the top. Any bets on how long it will last? Should Mr. Bunches buy his tickets now to the Superbowl?

Oh, and for those of you wondering–yes, our house survived Idiot Nation. Just barely. Of course, I’m not sure Buffalo did, but that’s a story for another time and place . . . :)
