Buffalo Jill of The Week Amanda F

This week, we take a look at a popular 2nd year vet from the Jills Ambassador Squad in blonde bombshell Amanda F. If we were to use one word to describe Amanda, it would have to be the word "classy." That word can be taken a couple different ways when describing Amanda. First, there's the obvious that anyone can see. Her beauty reminds one of classic screen sirens from the mid-20th century like Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, and Lana Turner. Prior to last year's first preseason game, a few guys even proclaimed September as their favorite month after seeing Amanda grace that month in last year's calendar. Obviously, they must be rather excited about November getting here this year. But beyond her looks, she also carries herself in a classy manner. She has an obvious air of sophistication about her but is anything but snooty or stuck up. She has a big heart and is fiercely loyal to her friends. Squadmate Laura even had this to say about her. "Amanda is one of those rare people that has the ability to do anything she puts her mind to. Whatever job interview, project, assignment, she chooses or is'll know it'll be done with class and be the best. She's loyal, beautiful, smart. She's got it all and then some."

Bandettes welcome 5 new faces and 2 familiar faces

This past weekend, the Buffalo Bandettes held tryouts to see who was going to cheer on the reigning NLL Champions, the Buffalo Bandits! In addition to 5 brand new faces this season, the Bandettes are welcoming back 2 familiar faces to their ranks as well.

Canadian-born Danielle spent the 2005-2007 seasons dancing with the Bandettes and even with her season off, she still contributed some of the choreography last season as she wasn't ready to give up the dancing just yet. Considering she's been dancing since the age of 3 and acting in local plays as well as earning a Bachelor's Degree in Theater, everyone who knows her knew she couldn't stop performing for too long.

Denise only spent the 2005 season as a Bandette but also spent time cheering on other Buffalo teams before and after that. In 1994-96, she was on the sidelines of the Ralph as a member of the Buffalo Jills. She spent the 2000-2003 seasons at HSBC Arena cheering on the Buffalo Destroyers as a member of the Buffalo Bombshells and she even was a part of the short-lived Rush squad cheering on the Buffalo Rapids, the team that, until last month, was known as the Buffalo Sharks.
The next few weeks, the Bandettes will be putting in a lot of hours of practice and you can see them in action on December 7th from 11-1 at the Bandits Open Practice at HSBC Arena.

A few more Jills appearances coming up

On Friday night, November 7th, visit 5 of the Buffalo Jills Cheerleaders as they guest bartend at The Bayou Nightclub on Chippewa. Danielle, Lynn, Valerie, Lisa & Alecia will be helping behind the bar & cocktailing! Come by and say “Hello!”
Also, don't miss the opportunity to meet Paul Posluszny, Donte Whitner, Roscoe Parrish and of course the Buffalo Jills at the Walden Galleria on Saturday, November 15th. Visit for more information.

More pics from the Buffalo Jills Calendar Release Party

Bill Parker from was also on hand at the Jills Calendar Release Party taking photos for that site. They can be found at

Fish game at Rhino's

It took until the 7th game of the season for the Bills to finally face off against a division opponent and their game against the hated Fish (the Miami Dolphins) started as a close game but, thanks in part to some injuries and some notable players playing hurt, the Bills were unable to handle the Miami passing game and struggled with their own passing game as well.

At Rhino's, home of the 103.3 The Edge away game parties, a light crowd during pregame increased dramatically by gametime and coming in just before kickoff were a pair of 2nd year vets from the Buffalo Jills, Lisa and Amanda F. Also on hand, after finishing an appearance of their own, were Jennifer and Ayeshia, who came by to watch the game with the rest of the fans.

2008 Calendar Release Party Pics

With the weather getting colder and snow approaching fast, one doesn't expect to see women in bikinis in Western New York these days but things were heated up immensely as 38 of the 45 gorgeous members of the Buffalo Jills invaded Club Paradise in Blasdell. 3 dance routines were performed for the partygoers that not only had beautiful dancers, but hot dance moves as well. Christina and Jennifer took the spotlight for the first routine while Nicole, Eileen, and Amelina performed a very sexy routine after that. The Jills finished up the dance portion of the show with a hot routine by Jackie, Lynn, Anna, Valerie, and Jessica before all the squad members on hand took the spotlight showing off the swimwear they wear in this year's Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar. If you missed the party, to say you missed out would have to be an understatement. For those of us who made it, including the CW23's Lydia, on hand as emcee for the night, here are a good number of photos and videos from the evening.

Coming up next for the Jills, they're back at the Ralph to cheer on the Bills against the Jets on November 2nd. Then comes a return trip to Rhino's Rock Bar in Orchard Park for a few of the Jills for an away game party against the Patriots on the 9th. There will also be some Jills at Hearthstone Manor on the 9th for an away game party put on by Mix 104.1, a benefit for the American Cancer Society.

Shredd and Ragan take the Buffalo Jills through Final Fear

Something well-known in Buffalo is how much people put into haunted houses. Recently, Shred and Ragen of 103.3 The Edge took some of the Buffalo Jills through the Final Fear haunted house that's located on the Hamburg Fairgrounds and used a night vision camera to record their fright.

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

From the Pro Cheerleader Blog
In the past we've profiled Pro Cheerleaders who are military vets, but this is our first vet who takes care of animals. During the week Amanda K. is an associate veterinarian at a cats and dogs only veterinary clinic not far from Ralph Wilson Stadium. But on Sundays during the fall you can find her dancing on the sidelines as a member of the Buffalo Jills.

The road to Veterinarian/Pro Cheerleader starts in Buffalo where Amanda was born. She moved to Alabama at a young age and when she was about eight or nine years-old, Amanda's pet hamster, Mr. Simply, fell ill. She took him to the vet, and although there wasn't much the veterinarian could do, Amanda was impressed with the caring and concern that he showed.

The experience with her hamster, combined of Amanda's love of science since middle school, pointed her in the direction a scientific career working with animals. She investigated a few options, but eventually decided on studying veterinary medicine. She wanted a job she could anywhere and couldn't imagine herself sitting at a a desk all day long. For Amanda being a Veterinarian was the perfect choice.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Kristina

This week, we take a look at one of our rookie dancers from Nicole's line. On gamedays, you can find Kristina between 2nd year vets Katie C and Jill D. One of the big things the Jills are involved in every year is the Jr Jills program, working with young cheerleaders and showing them the ropes, guiding them along. It's almost like a Big Sisters program over the summer in many ways. Kristina found the program a natural fit as she guides her own little sister along already. Maybe one of these days we'll see them cheering alongside one another on the sidelines at the Ralph one of these days. But beyond that, she says the best advice she ever received was to try and become everything you want to be because you only live once. Well, she tried, and succeeded, becoming an NFL cheerleader, something that so few women ever get to do. She's also not willing to settle for a bachelor's degree...she's going for her master's in marketing. You can read more about Kristina at

Chargers game pics

On Sunday, Ralph Wilson Stadium was the scene as the San Diego Chargers faced off against the AFC East leading Buffalo Bills. People trying to watch the game on TV were out of luck for the most part as electrical problems, caused by helium-filled party balloons that tangled in the stadium's power lines, caused the CBS broadcast to be interrupted a few times during the game. In addition, the scoreboard, sound systems, and lighting were on and off sporadically throughout the bulk of the game. The fans that were there, however, got a great show as the game remained tight much of the day until the Bills surged late in the 3rd with a Marshawn Lynch touchdown and iced the game with a FG by Rian Lindell late in the game and a pair of huge drive-ending plays by free agent addition Kawika Mitchell with an interception and then a forced fumble, the latter of which finishing the game for good as the Bills improved to 5-1 with the 23-14 victory.
The Chargers are well-known for having beautiful cheerleaders and the Jills continue to prove they're at least on par with the Chargers Girls with their beauty and their sideline routines during the game. Members of the ambassador squad posed for pictures with fans and sold swimsuit calendars at tailgate parties sponsored by 97Rock and 103.3 The Edge as well as inside the Fieldhouse while Paul Peck and Rich Gaenzler hosted the Official Bills pregame show just a few feet away. After they were finished in the Fieldhouse, 2nd year vet Ambassadors Vincenza and Keisha joined team mascot Billy Buffalo in his travels during the game.
Unfortunately, the electrical problems caused another problem as well. While the Jills kept cheering on the sidelines and dancing, when the electricity was working, the pregame routine and 3rd intermission routine had to be scrapped for this game. We still have plenty of photos from the day and even the ill-advised contraption that covered over the tunnel before the game only hindered the photography a little.
Next up for the Jills is the Swimsuit Calendar Release Party at Club Paradise on October 25th.
After that, we'll find a few of the girls at Rhino's Rock Bar in Orchard Park for the 103.3 The Edge Away Game Party watching the Bills-Dolphins game along with the fans on October 26th. The Jills are back at the Ralph to cheer on the Bills on November 2nd as they play host to Brett Favre and the NY Jets, a team that finally added cheerleaders in 2007.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Lisa

This week, we take a look at one of the 2nd year vets on Omarlla's line. Last year's rookie of the year can be found on gamedays between Jackie and Ashley and has been cheering non-stop since the age of 4 so we can, thankfully, expect to see her on the sidelines at the Ralph for quite a while longer. After coaching high school cheerleaders recently for a couple of years, odds are we'll see some of her former proteges joining her before long. This isn't just because those girls will be at the right age, but because Lisa has a rather magnetic personality and is fun to be around. Her personal motto is Carpe Diem, which means "seize the day" and anyone who knows Lisa knows that's exactly how she is, living each moment to the fullest. You can read more about Lisa at

Buffalo Jill of The Week Alison

This week, we take a look at one of the rookie members of the Jills Ambassador Squad as our Jill of The Week. Alison is a future pharmacist who is a self-confessed shop-a-holic. She loves Buffalo for the outstanding food but hates having to scrape ice off her car to go get it as much as she does. It'd be summer 365 days a year if she had her way. Beyond that, she's an eternal optimist and a big reason for that is her parents, both cancer survivors, taught her how to keep her head up no matter what. You can read more about Alison at

Cardinals Game at Rhino's

Attendance at the 103.3 The Edge Away game parties at Rhino's Rock Bar in Orchard Park has been increasing every game it seems and there are a number of reasons for that. First of all, people are finding out about it more and more. Secondly, the dispute between Time Warner Cable and LIN-TV, which owns the station that carries the Bills games, WIVB, escalated and cable customers had to find other ways to watch the game.. Finally, who wouldn't want to watch the Bills game with some of the beautiful Buffalo Jills?
The game itself was something people would rather forget. JP Losman, in for an injured Trent Edwards, had a rather sub-par showing. The offensive line was overwhelmed most of the day, and the defense looked completely lost out there. But there were positives at Rhino's on Sunday. While only 1 Buffalo Jill showed up officially, what lacked in quantity was made up for in quality as it was 9-year veteran captain Omarlla, who tried to hide her anguish at the Bills' poor play. However, she, and Keisha, who showed up to lend her support, didn't hide their excitement at the positive plays, like JP Losman's scramble for a TD late in the 2nd quarter.
Next up, the Jills are back to the field for a home game against the San Diego Chargers on the 19th. After that, the Jills invade Club Paradise on the 25th at 9pm for the Annual Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar Release Party, where there will not only be dancing and raffles, but a fashion show featuring the gorgeous members of the 2008-09 Buffalo Jills in their swimwear from the calendar.

Buffalo Jill of The Week Christina

This week, we take a look at the Jills' newest co-captain. Christina is in her 3rd season with the squad and has been on the fast track to stardom right from the start. Besides being made a co-captain in her 3rd season, she was the 2006 rookie of the year and was placed on the squad's events dance crew within a few months after making the squad, first performing at the 4th Annual Buffalo Jills Golf Tournament. The Jills events dance crew is a group of dancers who are selected to perform dance routines at the big Jills events, like the recent Calendar Shoot Fundraiser. To finish up her rookie season, she joined Autumn, Natale, Jamie F, Jamie R, and Valerie in South Beach for a Beauties on the Beach competition against squads from 7 other teams. Word is, they did pretty well and kicked some butt in beach volleyball. This bubbly blonde is Omarlla's co-captain this year and can regularly be seen between Alecia and Murissa on gamedays.
