Once upon a time, the Buffalo Bills took great pride in their decided advantage in poor weather against warm weather teams. That was back before they spent all of their practices indoors when the weather turned bad. The team that handed the San Francisco 49ers a 26-21 loss in their last visit to Western NY is long gone and even the team that started out the season 5-1 and led the AFC East seems a distant memory as the Bills need to win their final four games and get help from other teams in their attempt to make the playoffs for the first time in 9 years.
While the Bills faltered in their first home matchup against the 49ers in 10 years, the sidelines were filled with ladies who did anything but falter as the Buffalo Jills performed like champions in the cold rain from beginning to end. Prior to the game, fans could get swimsuit calendars, photographs, and autographs from members of the Jills Ambassador Squad. Calendar covergirl Vincenza could be found at the 103.3 The Edge Tailgate party with squadmates Laura and Amanda F while the 97Rock tailgate party featured Katherine and rookies Liz and Alison and there were plenty of fans in both locations meeting these beautiful young women. Inside the Fieldhouse, Brandi and Ambassador Squad co-captain Danielle had their share of fans as well prior to taking the field with Billy Buffalo for the game. Of course before the game could start, someone had to deliver the gameball and Danielle was the one chosen to accompany UPS on the delivery.
Coming up next for the Jills, they'll be heading across the border to Toronto for the first regular season game in the Bills in Toronto series as the Bills face off against the hated Miami Dolphins in must-win game for the Bills playoff hopes. The Jills will be on hand at the Budweiser Tailgate Party which will be going on from 11am-4pm in the parking lot across from Rogers Centre at the corner of Blue Jays Way and Front Street and the dance squad will be putting on a dance performance at about 12:30pm. Admission to the party is free to anyone 19 and over and party-goers without game tickets will have plenty of opportunities to win tickets to the game throughout the party.
Following that, Rhino's Rock Bar is the place to be on December 14th and 21st for the Bills away game parties sponsored by 103.3 The Edge. If you've made any of the parties so far this season, make sure to show up at least on the 21st as the 42" LCD TV is being drawn for that day. You must be present to win.
The Jills finish up the regular season on December 28th at the Ralph as the Bills face off against the New England Patriots* and we can only hope that we'll see the Bills and Jills continue on into the playoffs.
