"Play like hell and win."
That's what the Bills new head coach, Perry Fewell, said when asked about his coaching philosophy. That, alone, is enough to lift the spirits of Bills fans who have suffered for 3 1/2 years of soul-crushing ineptitude at the hands of Dick Jauron.
Rejoice, my Bills brothers and sisters, Skeletor is no more!
This Sunday, our newly liberated Buffalo Bills travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars at 1 pm. The game will not be on local TV so come on down to the Harp and celebrate with a beef-on-weck! Buffalo native (and new Backers member) Todd Snopkowski is providing the kimmelweck rolls from his South Shore catering company, "Food With Wings". Check them out on the web at http://foodwithwings.com, and on Facebook as "Snap Chef".
Along with the Weck, we'll be raffling off some cool prizes for charity, including an autographed Marshawn Lynch mini-helmet and a variety of other cool prizes. We'll also be doing a 50/50 raffle. It'll be a great time.
On a personal note, we'd like to wish Matt Irvine the best of luck as he leaves the Boston area for New York City with his new bride. We've already warned the Bills Backers of New York City, Matt, so they're ready for you! Joining Chris, Jeff and George on the Executive Committee is Tim Sweeney, who has been a fixture at the Harp for several years now. Tim has also been running the Bills/Pats tailgate for the last few years, and is an admin for the Facebook group "Bills Backers of Boston", too. If you don't already know Tim, he's usually camped out in the lower bar - stop down and say hello.
See you Sunday... Go Bills!
