My Most Memorable Bills Moment
Watching the Bills comeback against the Houston Oilers in 1992 was my most memorable moment. I will never forget the overwhelming feelings of excitement as Frank Reich came into the game and led us to overtime victory, 41-38. The greatest part is that the Bills did this without Jim Kelly, Cornelius Bennett and Thurman Thomas. A win like that highlights the true meaning of "Team" and sportsmanship!

My All-Time Greatest Bills Player
I have to say that Jim Kelly is the greatest Bills player of all-time. He guided our team for 10 years. In that 10 years, not only was he an excellent quarterback, he provided us with the most entertaining and exciting football ever witnessed. I am forever grateful to have been a part of it. The way he ran the K-Gun gave him an edge over any other quarterback in the league!

My Favorite Bills PlayerDarryl Talley, #56, is my favorite Bills player by far. He was the glue that held the team together during the Super Bowl years. He was the heart and soul of our team and of Buffalo, as far as I'm concerned.

Unique and Special Bills Moments
As a season ticket holder, I will cherish the memories of the 48 years forever. I NEVER missed attending a home game throughout those 48 years! I enjoyed those years with many different people, including my daughter for two years in the 80's when she was just 11 years old. I was even featured in a news story on Channel 7 Sports for never missing a game in 44 years. Last year, some health problems prevented me from continuing my streak, but I haven't given up hope or my tickets! I am looking forward to attending more games this year.
