The Bills haven't beaten the Patriots in five years, but this Sunday's game is as big as they get. With a win, the Bills stay in first place and get back some of that early season mojo. We're not even going to contemplate the alternative. It looks like Sunday will be a great day for football, so bring it, Buffalo!
We're told that Ticketmaster has a limited number of standing room and single-seat tickets available on their website for Sunday's game.
If you're going to the game, we've included the tailgate information below. If you're not going to the game, we'll see you at the Harp. Kickoff is at 1 pm.
Sabres/Bruins on Saturday Night: The Sabres are in first place in the division but Boston is only one point behind. It should be a great game! If you're going, meet at the Harp for a pregame dinner. If you don't have tickets, they are still available at the box office. Our group is in Section 321. Let's make ourselves heard at the Garden!
Let's Go Buffalo!
Here's the info on the Bills tailgate for the game on Sunday. Please note that we've changed things up a bit to make it easier for everyone to get together. Tim Sweeney is the contact person, you can reach him at timothy.m.sweeney (at) gmail (dot) com. He can give you his cell number if you need it.
You can meet up for the traditional "convoy" or head straight to the tailgate spot.
MEETING PLACE - 8:15am. If you want to drive in together, meet up at the Dunkin Donuts on Route 1 in East Walpole, on the southbound side at the intersection of Union Street. Here's a map:
The best way to get there from Boston would be to take exit 15B (Rt-1) off of 128/I-95 and head southbound down Rt-1, or take I-95 south to Exit 10 (Coney St), right on Coney St, right on Rt-1 northbound, and left onto Union St.
TAILGATE SPOT: We'll be tailgating in a private lot so as to avoid the North Korean security detail at Gillette Stadium. It's a private lot just north of the stadium behind a liquor store. When approaching the stadium from the north you'll see a 1 story liquor store with a Subway next to it. We'll be parking in the lot behind that building. Here's the location:
