The electricity and excitement in Ralph Wilson Stadium for last year's Bills vs. Cowboys Monday Night Football game was unforgettable. Next Monday, Bills fans will get another chance to celebrate Monday Night Football in style as the Cleveland Browns visit Buffalo.
On Monday, November 17, the Bills will host the Molson Ultimate Tailgate in parking lot C (located directly behind the scoreboard and off Abbot Road) from 4:30 – 8:00 p.m. prior to kickoff of the Bills-Browns Monday Night Football contest. The event is free and open to the public.
The Molson Ultimate Tailgate activities will include a Hall of Fame exhibit directly from Canton, Ohio, interactive games area, Jills cheerleaders, Billy Buffalo the Bills mascot, souvenir photo opportunities, numerous vendor displays, giveaways and a food and concessions village.
97 Rock radio and WKBW-TV will broadcast their pregame programming live, and fans are invited to watch and listen. In addition, a huge concert stage will be set up with a live "Rock Band" competition brought to you locally by Time Warner Cable, and a Jills Cheerleaders dance performance. Live musical entertainment will feature the Tom Sartori Band, Artvoice Music Awards top acoustic performer of the year and Buffalo Music Awards top solo artist the past three years. Buffalo Bills Wall of Famer Steve Tasker will host the festivities.
In addition, Toyota will give Bills fans the opportunity to toss three footballs into a Bills inflatable target during the Tailgate Party. If a fan gets one football into the target, he/she is automatically entered for an opportunity to participate in the Toyota "Tundra Football Toss" during halftime on-field at the Bills vs. Patriots game on December 28, 2008.
MillerCoors will provide Bills fans the opportunity to win tickets to the Bills vs. Miami game in Toronto! The Molson Girls will be on-site registering fans throughout the tailgate party. Winners will be announced live on the main stage at 7:45 p.m.
"Bills Rally Towels", courtesy of game sponsor Tops Friendly Markets, will be handed out to the first 55,000 fans that enter the stadium.
Pregame in-stadium activities include a spectacular pyrotechnics show that will go off as the Bills team is announced, a marching band performance and a Jills cheerleaders dance routine.
The Buffalo Bills and Coors Brewing Company remind fans to drink responsibly (or plan ahead and select a designated driver/use a cab to get home safely).
