The 50th season for the Buffalo Bills started off in forgettable fashion as they gave away an 11-point lead on Monday Night Football last week. With a 9-year playoff drought, the game gave fans reasons for hope as well as reasons for despair. When it came time for the Bills home opener this weekend, the hope and excitement were what filled the stadium as the Bills hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 1st time in a regular season game in the 34-year history of that franchise. A strong start gave way to a close game until the Bills put the game away behind the efforts of Fred Jackson, Donte Whitner, Terrell Owens, an O-line with only 1 player with more than 1 start, and a raucous crowd of over 70,000 mostly Bills fans.
But of course this site isn't about the game but the beauties cheering on the Bills and there's plenty to say about them as well. Prior to the game, fans found Vincenza joining Ruby, Kelly Ann, and Courteney at the 103.3 The Edge Tailgate party posing for photos and selling their hot swimsuit calendars. Amanda was there as well and if you're wondering why a dancer (Vincenza) was with the ambassadors, a hamstring is the reason, showing that cheerleading and dancing are definitely a sport but we'll hopefully have Vini back on the sidelines next week. At the 97Rock Tailgate nearby, Heather, Lindsay, and Laura joined calendar covergirl (and birthday girl) Katy as they also posed for photos and sold calendars while Carl Russo of 97Rock broadcasted live behind them. Meanwhile, in the Fieldhouse, Kristen faced off against Ambassador Squad captain Keisha in a game of Family Feud teamed up with 2 groups of fans before they spent the game touring the stadium alongside Bills mascot Billy Buffalo.
When it came time for the game, they had to get the game ball delivered before they could start and drawing that duty for the day was none other than 10th year veteran Omarlla, a Buffalo school teacher who just seems to get better in every way each year. Halftime brought something special to the Bills fans as the Bills introduced their 50th Anniversary All-time team, as chosen by the fans and joining the team on the field were not only the dancers, but the ambassadors of the Buffalo Jills. It was definitely a unique sight as Omarlla, Eileen, and Nicole P's lines came out on the field with members of the Jills Ambassador Squad interspersed in their lines.
Next up for the Jills, Club Paradise in Blasdell is the place to be Saturday night as the Jills have their annual Swimsuit Calendar Release Party. These 39 beauties won't be just selling the calendars but doing a great job of convincing people to buy them with a high energy fashion show in the same swimsuits that they're wearing in the calendar. The event also includes a dance performance, raffles, and drink specials. The event runs from 9-midnight and the girls won't have a lot of time to relax afterwards as the Bills are once again at home on Sunday, this time against the high-flying New Orleans Saints. Former Bills Anthony Hargrove, Pierson Prioleau and Jabari Greer came to town with a solid team behind them, which means the Jills and the fans will have to once again do their best to help the Bills come out with a win!
