On an overcast day in late September, the Bills played host to an old rival from the AFL days in the form of the Oakland Raiders. Going into the game with a 2-0 record, the Bills and their fans had high hopes but thanks to an inspired Raiders team, some questionable officiating, and horrid play in the first half by Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters, the Bills fell behind by a score of 16-7 in the 3rd quarter. But, thanks to a raucous crowd, inspired partly by the inclusion on the Wall of Fame at halftime of All-World DE Bruce Smith, the Bills pulled together and pulled out a last second 24-23 win.
Obviously the inspiration didn't come exclusively from Bruce, but also from the fact that the Bills have some of the most beautiful women around dancing on the sidelines. From pregame, where the Ambassadors were swamped by photographers and calendar-seekers, to the game, where Amanda F and Sarah escorted Billy Buffalo and the dancers helped keep the crowd excited, the Jills are contunually increasing in popularity every week.
Next up for the Jills is their 2009 Swimsuit Calendar Fundraiser at SoHo on September 27th from 6-9. Admission is $20 which covers all you can eat pizza, wings, beer, and wine as well as the chance to mingle with 46 of the most beautiful women in the region.
The next two Sundays, the best place to see the Jills is Rhino's Rock Bar in Orchard Park, home of the 103.3 The Edge Away Game Parties.
The Jills, and Bills, next take the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium on October 19th as LaDainian Tomlinson and the San Diego Chargers come to town.
