Buffalo Jill of The Week Anna
This week's Jill of The Week was actually an early departure from the 2009 squad, spending her time anchoring one end of Eileen's line next to Valerie. Anna was the 2008 Jills rookie of the year and was loved not only by her squadmates and the fans, but the FOX cameras as well with all the exposure she got at the Bills Home Opener on TV. Thankfully, she's back in 2010 to grace the sidelines of Ralph Wilson Stadium cheering on the Bills. This future Canadian avocat (French for lawyer) has some Hawaiian blood in her background, which helps explain her exotic looks. Besides making her a target for the cameras, her distinctive looks also helped her line get some extra exposure in Canton. You see, they opened the gates for entry to the Hall of Fame Game just as the Jills were heading back to their locker room after some pregame practice. Since I missed getting any close-up photos of that, I was wandering around the stadium a bit and was on the other end of the field when I spotted Anna as she came back out of the locker room with the rest of Eileen's line for a bit of extra practice time. Outgoing and gregarious, Anna from Canada grew up as a Steelers fan but, while she still holds a soft spot for the Pittsburgh team, she's grown to love the Bills the last few years and will be cheering as hard for the Bills as any other Buffalo Jill Thanksgiving weekend when the Steelers invade Orchard Park to face off against the Bills. You can read more about Anna in the webgroup's files section where a copy of her 2008 bio will be posted for the week. Also, take a look below at a practice routine from before the Hall of Fame Game featuring Anna and the rest of Eileen's line.
