Buffalo Jill of The Week Kaitlin B

This week, we go back to the vets and take a look at 2nd year dancer Kaitlin B. On gamedays, she's found on Jamie's line between Melissa and Lisa. Her dance training prior to joining the squad last year was purely of the non-sideline variety with 6 years at the David De Marie Studios. As a Jill, she could be considered a part of the group of Three Musketeers made up of herself, Valerie, and Jessica Z. At any major Jills event, where you see one of them, you can usually find at least one of the other two is closeby as well. One would think, with the close bond these three share, that they grew up together or something...yet all three come from different towns in Western New York and attended dance growing up with different dance schools. It seems it was just a case of getting to know one another early as rookies and having a common bond. You can read more about Kaitlin at

Buffalo Jill of The Week Jill D

This week, we take a look at a Jill named Jill. Rookie dancer Jill D can be found on gamedays on Aimee's line next to Aimee and Valerie. It's a natural fit for Jill to be on the squad and the reasoning for that has nothing to do with her name. She has 13 years of dance training including 7 years of competitive dance training as well as 2 years of dance in college. While she says one word that describes her is silly, she actually comes across as pretty mature for her age, probably due in part to all the work she's put in to get to this point. While it's true she's put in a lot of work and she continues to work at it, she's also enjoying her experiences on the squad thus far and it's pretty rare to see her not sporting her warm and friendly smile.

Update on Jills Official site

The Jills official site is updating right now but there are some sections of the site that are all finished and looking sharp.

Included among those is the Calendar page where info is included for ordering the sizzling hot swimsuit calendar over the phone or mail order.

The Bios page (still being updated with more bios) is where you can check out info on your favorite Buffalo Jills including background, experiences, and even their sign

There's a photo gallery as well where you can find not only some of the photos from this site, but other Jill-submitted photos as well, including a few photos from Afghanistan, a recent troop visit featuring Eileen, Autumn, Emily, Melissa, Stefanie, Jenica, Jessica Z, Kaitlin B, and Jill R.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Stephanie B

This week, we take a look at rookie Stephanie B. Stephanie can be found on gamedays next to Omarlla and Christina in the lineup and is loving her experiences as a Jill so far. Her swimsuit photo shoot, taken at Fountain Plaza in Buffalo, did a great job of showing off her curves in a pink string bikini and she's shown ever since then how camera-friendly she is. But Stephanie is more than curves and a bright smile. She was a competitive dancer for over a decade and a half and when reaching high school, she skipped the Jr. Varsity cheerleading squad and went straight to Varsity. She's working on becoming an elementary school teacher and hopes to really make an impact on children's lives, similar to how Oprah Winfrey has done, but on a different scale.

Buffalo Jills Adult Comedy Show

After a year hiatus, the Jills Comedy show is back. Now, before anyone asks, no, this isn't an event where the comedians are the Buffalo Jills. Although, if one of the girls did take the stage like that, I wouldn't be surprised. None of us expected Aimee and Keiyonna to sing at a couple of events last season but they did. No, this will be featuring Rob Lederman from 97 Rock along with a number of other comedians. The 2005 show was finished off by Los Angeles-based comic B.T.

This year, the show will be held at Club Paradise in Blasdell. That's the nightclub of the Clarion Hotel right on McKinley Pkwy, less than a mile off of Milestrip on Friday, October 5th, at 8pm. Tickets are available in advance for $15 from a number of places.

  • Club Paradise

  • Citadel Radio studios in Buffalo

  • Order them direct through the info is at

  • Buy them direct from the Jills themselves prior to the Bills-Jets game on September 30th in the Fieldhouse or at the 97Rock or 103.3 The Edge Tailgate parties while you're getting your swimsuit calendars.

They will also be available at the door for $17 so if you can't get yours early, you won't get shut out from attending this event. A cash bar and food will be available as well and a Chinese Auction will be held. For those unaware of what a Chinese Auction is, it's similar to a raffle in that you buy raffle tickets. However, you put the ticket in the basket for whatever prize(s) you are interested in winning. So, if you see some prizes you don't care for, you just don't put in for them and you won't get them. There will be about 50 items available for the auction.

Hope to see you there!

Broncos game pics

On a rainy day in Orchard Park, NY, the Buffalo Bills suffered a devastating last second loss to the visiting Broncos and to a number of severe injuries to the players, including one probably ending a career. There were positives to this day as well, though. Super Bowl Era Bills players came together at halftime to see special teams ace Steve Tasker take his place on the Bills Wall of Fame. Also, the 2007-2008 edition of the Buffalo Jills squad made their regular season debut and the rain couldn't dampen their spirit or beauty. Swimsuit Calendars were selling fast in pregame and a number of the dancers were stationed around the gates in pregame for the Fan Food Drive collecting money and non-perishable food items. Next up, the Bills and Jills return to the Ralph on the 30th vs the Jets.

2007 Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar Release Party

On the Friday night before the Bills opened the regular season on the field, their cheerleaders, the wildly popular Buffalo Jills celebrated the release of their Swimsuit Calendar at Club New York in Niagara Falls, NY. Party-goers were able to get calendars signed by nearly the entire squad as well as get photos of and with the Jills. After all that, the majority of the squad took the stage to show off their swimwear before Eileen, Christina, Omarlla, Nicole, and Katie K put on a trio of rousing dance performances for the excited crowd. Former Jills Kristine L (2002-2005) and Jessica K (2006...there to support her twin sister Jenica who made the cover) were on hand to help the large crowd celebrate the calendar. If you missed this big event, what were you thinking? Here's a LARGE series of pictures to show off what you missed and to give the rest of us some memories of the evening.

Buffalo Jill of the Week Amanda F

The name Amanda means loveable and that's a fitting word for our current Jill of The Week, rookie Amanda F. At the Jills Golf Tournament, she was one of the Jills bid on to be a companion for the day and pulled in $50 on just her opening bid. She didn't just travel around with her foursome, however. She was given the task of using the rangefinder to help out her golfers. Then, at the first preseason game, she, Jessica D, Katherine, and Vincenza took a tour to Lot 1 to sell some calendars pregame and a few guys remarked how September was now their favorite month...because of Amanda. Besides quickening pulses, Amanda spends her free time when not cheering or in college classes with her dog Riley. You can read more about this blonde bombshell at
