My Most Memorable Bills Moment

It has to be the playoff game with the Houston Oilers. Score was 35-3 after the first play of the second half. Many fans left. My daughter in Richmond taped it and I still watch it occasionally.

My All-Time Greatest Bills Player

I'll select Jack Kemp. About 40 years ago he was being booed unmercifully by the fans and I wrote him a note of apology (when he was in the hospital recovering from surgery). He wrote to me thanking me. I thought he might be president some day and I still have his reply.

My Favorite Bills Player

Josh Reed.  Every year, he isn't "good" enough for the position, but he always keeps his job and goes on to have a very good season. Playing his best seems to be good enough!

Special Comment

Thanks for giving us old-timers a chance to be heard. Now, if I could just get the people in front of me to sit down I'd really be happy!
