Longtime Bills Season Ticket Member, and Season Ticket Member of the Game, Richard Foley, did not have a conventional path to becoming a Bills Fan. Raised in New Jersey, Foley developed a love for the team, despite his geographical location. Although he's made many fond Bills memories over the years, Foley can still recall his first Bills game back in 1993 in Philadelphia.
"That was a lot of fun, just to finally be able to watch a game live…," explained Foley.
Foley has come a long way since his inaugural game and is now able to connect with the team on a more personal level. He relates to some of his favorite players like Bills Legend Fred Jackson and defensive tackle Kyle Williams.
Foley elaborated, "Those are the two guys that kind of represent myself and every other Bills fan out there – blue collar workers."
Foley noted that after five years as a Bills Season Ticket Member, he and his family decided to purchase an RV to enhance their Bills game experience. While excited about the new purchase, his wife and family decided unanimously it needed a fresh look, which is what made them change the RV from beige to all Bills colors – inside and out. Over the years, it's started a lot of conversation at Bills games and has even made them friends during tailgates.
"It's something that really stands out…," said Foley.
During Foley's 13 years as a Season Ticket Member, he has enjoyed the perks associated with his membership. One of his favorites is the ability to relocate his seats. Foley has moved around New Era Field a few times and loves the ability to get to see the game from different views.
