Buffalo Jills Photos of The Week

This week's pictures come from this year's Buffalo Jills Congratulatory Party. This was an event, started a few years ago, meant to introduce the new Jills to the public, and allow the public to not only meet the new squad members, but see the returning vets as well. It usually takes place at the end of April or beginning of May so don't be afraid to set aside a few Saturday nights for next spring. But before we think about next year, let's take a look at a few pics from this year's event.
The 1st pic features rookies Kristin M and Brandi. All I can say about Kristin so far is that she's kind of a quiet and reserved girl, at least at first. Brandi should be no stranger to anyone who's been to Jills events, or at least looking at pictures from them, the last few years. She's had some friends on the squad, like Omarlla, and even gave it a shot trying out a few years back. Thankfully, she never gave up and made the squad this year.

The 2nd pic features Liz, Kelly, Alison, Danielle, and Sarah. Kelly and Danielle need no introduction as they're the captains of the Jills Ambassador Squad. Kelly's been with the squad since 2002 and Danielle is in her first season as Kelly's co-captain and her 3rd year with the Jills. Rookie Liz is a psych major and Alison is one of her closest friends. Rookie Sarah is one of our two Canadians on the squad and the two Toronto games are basically going to be in her backyard.

Of course, you won't have to wait until football season to meet these, and other, rookies. July 12th and 13th is the Annual Taste of Buffalo festival in Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo and you'll find mostly rookies at the 97Rock, Bills, and 103.3 The Edge booths at the event both days. And July 21st at Fox Valley Country Club is a time you can meet not only the entire group of rookies, but all the vets as well at the 6th Annual Buffalo Jills Golf Tournament. So if you're a golfer, or just trying to be, that's the date to take a vacation day.

Buffalo Jills Photos of The Week

This week's photos come from the 1st Buffalo Men's Show held at the Hamburg Agri-Center. This was an event that basically celebrated manhood and featured sports celebrities and displays from the Army and a number of electronics retailers, all stuff that guys like. Of course another thing that guys like is beautiful women and there was no shortage of that as the 97Rock Angels put on a bikini fashion show, Playboy Playmate Shannon James appeared, the CW23's Lydia was on hand and last. but far from the least, the Buffalo Jills appeared for autographs, pictures, and a dance routine.
The 1st pic features a trio of rookies. Toi goes above and beyond when it comes to dedication as she hails from Pittsburgh. The fall will be Shana's first time at an NFL game as she grew up in Oakland, and what father would actually want his little girl to visit the Black Hole of Oakland Coliseum? Dana was actually the first rookie we met as she didn't come to the Open workshop on her own, but with returning vets Jess L and Stephanie B.

Our 2nd pic, taken with former Bills All-Pro G Ruben Brown and his motorcycle features 3 rookies and 1 vet. Rookie Stephanie Br is looking forward to her final year at grad school and vet Lisa is coming off a season as the Jills Rookie of The Year. Lonna is, in addition to being an ace at Guitar Hero, someone who can be very self-critical while Amelina, the shortest girl on the squad, makes up for her lack of height with her outstanding enthusiastic approach to dancing.

Buffalo Jills photos of The Week

The Buffalo Jill of The Week feature is going on hiatus until September so until then, we'll be taking a look at some current and past Buffalo Jills at some of their appearances, events, and games from the past. We'll take a look at some past Jills, some current vets, and some of the beautiful and talented rookies who joined up with the Jills just this season.
The first pair of photos are the most recent, coming from the 3rd Annual Niagara Falls Fire Department Motorcycle Run which took finished up at the Hard Rock Cafe down near the American Falls.
The 1st pic features a pair of rookies, Anna and Murissa, in a shot taken right in front of the American Falls. Anna is one of a pair of Canadians on the squad and rather enjoyed being treated like a celebrity while on the recent Jills calendar trip. Murissa lives to dance and cheer and has an incredibly supportive family...many of them came out to see her at this appearance.

The 2nd pic features a trio of vets, Jenica, Amanda F, and Vincenza, posing with 97Rock's Concert Correspondent, DJ Jickster. Jenica is in her 3rd season coming off a season as the Swimsuit calendar covergirl. Amanda and Vincenza are 2nd year members of the Ambassador Squad who've each picked up a strong following among Bills fans with their time on the squad so far.

And yes, those are new uniforms. There've been a few modifications made to the Jills uniforms since last season and we'll see more of the modifications over the coming months.

Niagara Falls Toy Fund Motorcycle Run

The Niagara Falls Firefighters do a lot more than fight fires in the Cataract City. They also do a lot to give back to the community through things such as toy distribution to needy children at Christmas, clothing for needy children, and a turkey dinner for senior citizens who are stuck in adult care facilities. The Toy Fund is mainly sponsored by a telethon in December and a motorcycle run during the summer. This was the 3rd year of the Motorcycle Run and this year, 97Rock was a sponsor. Of course, no 97Rock event would be complete without the 1st Ladies of Buffalo, the Buffalo Jills.

The Jills came in 2 shifts, with a trio of vets from 2-4 and a pair of rookies from 4-6. Vincenza, Amanda F, and Jenica spent their part of the day selling raffle tickets, meeting fans, and posing for pictures, including a few pictures on top of one of the Niagara Falls Fire Department's trucks with many of the firefighters and the day's volunteers. Rookies Anna and Murissa, after finishing off selling raffle tickets, handed out Bills schedules and posed with fans at the Motorcycle Run's afterparty, including Murissa's personal fan club, her family. Before leaving for the day, they took a walk down to the American Falls for some pictures, both of the Falls and with some fans.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Jenica

This will be the final edition of the Jill of The Week for the 2007-2008 squad and, as usual, we are finishing up with the covergirl of the Jills Swimsuit Calendar. Jenica spent her 2nd season with the squad dancing on Aimee's line between Katie K and Amanda P and was 2nd only to Amanda in mugging for the camera during But 2007 was a big year for Jenica in many ways. Besides getting the cover of the calendar, she was part of a group of 8 Jills who toured Kuwait and Iraq in early March of last year. When she returned, she tried out and came back to the squad without her twin sister Jessica, who she's done a lot with over the course of their lives. Thankfully, Jenica is one of our returnees for the 2008 squad and plans to continue to excel on the sidelines of the Ralph for the fans of the Buffalo Jills. You can read more about Jenica at

Valerie's Prom Date

A few weeks ago, 97Rock ran a contest with the prize being a date to the prom with the lovely Valerie of the Buffalo Jills. They've now got a video up of a part of the evening on YouTube. Check it out!

Also, 97Rock is featuring a few pictures from the recent Jills cruise on their website. The cruise was a part of the calendar shoot for the 2008-2009 Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar.
