Bills fans and the Super Bowl

Posted: January 30, 2013 in Sports

With the Super Bowl being played this Sunday; it ends the 2012 NFL season. As a Bills fan, this game can send your mind flashing wide right. It is bitter sweet. Football can often be a madding sport to watch and for Buffalo fans it is heart breaking. The Bills were the cream of the crop in the NFL for four years; making it to the Super Bowl four years in a row.

I’m sure that the NFL Network will show and has been showing Super Bowl high lights. But, there is one high light I can’t help but watch. Yes, it is wide right. It’s like a car crash on the 90. You know something is wrong, but you can’t help but look. It is one of the most famous plays in Buffalo sports history. A play that defines the heart ache the Buffalo fan base feels. To this day grown men and women cry about it. I’m not one of them, but I will say it sucks. It haunts the Bills and Bills fans alike. It is the one that got away

This Sunday with ever field goal attempt, I will be quietly wishing that the kicker doesn’t go wide right. I don’t want to hear those words ever again. It really is amazing how a few words can send a person’s mind in over drive. It’s fan thing. And I am darn proud to be a fan. That doesn’t mean that a fan can’t get upset at their team. Teams do all sorts of things that their fans dislike. It also doesn’t mean we as fans need to always live in the past, but the past builds the fan base. It shapes them and creates the attitude the fans have.

In Buffalo that attitude is blue collar. We want our teams to eco our love and drive for the Bills. This fan base is one of the best in the NFL, yet we are also some of the most damaged by missed kicks, laterals, lost helmets, and bad calls. However playoffs droughts, Super Bowls losses, or losing seasons we pack the Ralf 7 times a year. Buffalo may be classified as a small market team, but we are a large market fan base.

When the day comes, and the Bills return to the Super Bowl this fan base will show the rest of the league how to be true fans. Bills fan have had a hard run in the past, but as all fans know there’s always next year. Buffalo Bills are now on the clock.
