The waiting game is over, the beers are chilled and ready to be in our bellies, and our Buffalo Bills are ready to kickoff another season. We aren't delusional - we know what this team likely is and isn't (answers: "not very good" and "playoff bound"), but they are OURS. For better or worse, they are the team we love year after year, and today we can dare to imagine a series of weeks between now and New Years - a series of weeks which make us beam with pride for our team and our City; a series of weeks which make all of the talking heads at ESPN and WGR, and even DGWU Sports, eat some serious crow. And, with friends and family at our sides as we enter this struggle between good sense and foolish dreams, we know one thing for certain: it will be FUN.
God, I love this.
So, as the first kickoff soars (inevitably to the endzone for a touchback...fucking NFL), take a moment to enjoy it and ask yourselves - "Where else would you rather be, than right here, right now?"
Let's Go Buffalo. Let's Go Bills.
