The Bills' 2009 season drawing to a close brings up a lot of positives as well as negatives for the fans. Some of the positives are things like only one more week of poor football being played and an opportunity for players to get healthy and the team to get re-tooled for the 2010 season. There's also all the memories that were created, some bad and many good. Among the good were the Edge Away Game Parties held at the Aud Sports Bar and Grill in Depew, which featured great food, drink and wing specials, lots of prizes, and visits from a pair of Buffalo's beautiful Jills cheerleaders.
Among the negatives though, is the fact that some of these same Buffalo Jills might not return next season and next week's home finale is the last chance to see some of them. There are 3 of the 37, at least, who have already decided they won't be returning in 2010 and while we can hope they each reconsider (hint, hint), we know many move on whether we like it or not and all we can do is wish them well. There's also the chance that they could return in the future and that brings us to the pair of Jills who were at the Aud for the final Edge Away Game Party of the season. Kaitlin and Michelle are Jills dancers who each spent time with the squad in 2007 but not in 2008. Kaitlin is known as a former Ambassador who made the move to the dance squad this year while Michelle gets a lot of notice every week with her tumbling abilities on display during many routines and performances. They both, thankfully, have plans to be back in 2010 at the present time.
While the game itself may not be the most fantastic thing to watch next week, the Jills always put on great performances no matter how the Bills are doing. Members of the Ambassador Squad can be found at the 97Rock and 103.3 The Edge Tailgate parties prior to the game starting at about 10am posing for photos and selling some of their smoking hot Swimsuit Calendars. You can also catch a couple of them inside the Fieldhouse shortly after it opens meeting the fans and even playing a bit of Family Feud as well. But don't wait until the last minute to get inside the stadium as the Jills put on a fantastic pregame performance before the players come out on the field for the game. With captains Omarlla, Eileen, and Christina, the Jills lines will be performing all game long in addition to a big performance between the 3rd and 4th quarters. Why am I telling you, the loyal readers, all this? This may be the last time you'll see some of these girls perform and I know, I for one, will be saddened by this. While the brand of football displayed by the Bills most of the season has been unwatchable, the Jills performances by the dancers as well as the Ambassadors has more than made up for that.
