This week, Phantom Angel captain Jamie R takes the spotlight as our Jill of the Week. 2007 will be her 6th with the squad, a Jills career that includes a Pro Bowl appearance following the 2004 season. This devoted Buffalonian not only dances on the sidelines herself, but teaches dance as well in addition to working on a career in chemical engineering. You can read more about Jamie in the files section of the webgroup (registration required) and check out her hot swimsuit photos at FCI's site

It was round 1 of the NLL playoffs at HSBC Arena on Sunday when the Buffalo Bandits played host to the Minnesota Swarm. A half-size but raucous crowd watched as the Bandits fell behind 8-7 at the half then shut out the visiting Swarm the rest of the way to claim a 14-8 win and a ticket to a 2nd rd matchup in Rochester April 27th.
There's a possibility that this could have been the last home game for the 2007 Bandettes to perform at and they put on outstanding performances all game long to leave the crowd something to remember them by.
Of course, there's also a chance that these same Bandettes will get the chance to perform one final time this season. If the Bandits are successful in upending the Knighthawks Friday night, the NLL Title game will be hosted at HSBC Arena and the Bandettes will be on hand to put on more brilliant performances.

There are some things they don't have in common, of course. Sadly, one of those things is that Jessica won't be back with the Jills this fall, not being as much a fan of the spotlight as she thought she would be. Well, sorry Jessica...you have 1 more week of it here..lol.
Jenica, on the other hand, is returning to the Jills this year. She had to miss the open workshop due to her tour in Iraq with the rest of the "Phantom Angels" performing for, and visiting with, the US troops stationed over there.

And while most of the girl's mothers got them involved in dancing, it was actually her father that pushed her into it. It's no wonder that her most memorable moments dancing were the father-daughter dances.

Shortly after Lexi died, Scalzi learned about pool alarms. They are devices that are designed to sound an alarm, both at the pool and inside the house, if a child enters the water.The Scalzis decided that every pool in Western New York should have one, to make sure that no other parent would go through what they are enduring.
The Lexi's Legacy fundraiser is being held April 15 at Samuel's Grande Manor at 8750 Main Street in Williamsville. The entrance fee is $20 per person and includes food and beverages. Kids ten and under may attend the event free of charge.The event includes a Chinese auction. So far, the Scalzis have collected about 50 gift baskets for the auction. Their goal is to have 100 baskets.
The Buffalo Bandettes will be in attendance for this event from 1-5, signing posters and helping out with the auction. It's a great cause as well as a great opportunity to see some of the Bandettes.

Check this site http://buffalojillswebgroup.pbwiki.com/ for a look at the names of the girls (the vets, anyway...rookie names will be matched up with faces as we learn them...so don't forget to check back)
All together, 22 of the 35 girls on the roster at the end of the 2006 season have returned as well as one other familiar face...Melissa from the 2004-2005 squads. 18 rookies join these 23 seasoned vets in hopes of cheering the Bills all the way to the Super Bowl in Arizona
Fourth year Bandette Kimberly dances because it's something she loves to do, and it allows her to express herself through the type of dance and the music.
It's great for her to perform at Bandit games, because the crowd and the atmosphere is crazy and exciting.

Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena was the setting as members of the
Buffalo Sabres Alumni squared off against the Labatt Blue All-Stars in
a charity hockey game to benefit the Lakers' Sled Hockey program, the
Special Olympics skating program and the ice arena. Former Sabres stars
like Morris Titanic, Daryl Shannon, and Rob Ray took the ice for the
Sabres Alumni and former Buffalo Bills kicker Steve Christie was on
hand to drop the puck for the opening faceoff. Also on hand were 3rd
year vet Katie K and rookie Katherine K of the Buffalo Jills. They met
and greeted the fans and even got to drop the puck for the opening
faceoff of the 2nd period as well as pose for pictures with fans and
mascots. Here are a few photos of those 2 lovely ladies.
