The Jills and an alumnus at the Bills-Jags game

This summer, we caught up with Jills alumnus Amelina after a Bills training camp practice and she decided to make a trip back to Buffalo for a Bills game and joined me for some tailgating in Lot 1, home of the famed Red Pinto Tailgate party.

After she met up with some more friends, I went off to the Fieldhouse and got a few updates from the Jills director on various items, including an injured Jill who hurt herself in practice last week. After that, I spent some time getting pics of a pair of stunning Jills ambassadors in Alyssa and Michelle before they spent the game doing all the on-camera promotions around the stadium.

The 97Rock tailgate party went all out as they unveiled a carving of Andre Reed, hosted a dunk tank with proceeds going to Carvings For A Cause, an organization that does carvings with fallen trees with proceeds going to replace the trees that fell during the October Storm of 2006. The Andre Reed carving joined the carvings of Chris Berman and Jim Kelly outside the Big Tree Inn, at the corner of Big Tree and Abbott Roads.

Even with 7 Buffalo Jills Ambassadors on hand, things were hectic as the Jills calendars were selling quickly to all the fans on hand on this beautiful day.

After that, it was off to the 103.3 The Edge Tailgate party where Lindsay, Taryn, Sara, and Courteney were also doing very well with calendar sales. They were doing so well, in fact, that Sara even had to go over to the 97Rock Tailgate party to restock their supply when they sold out. Amelina also made a reappearance as she wanted to see her former squadmates perform live at 11:30 there in Lot C.

After the performance and some photos and autographs, it was time to get ready for the game which started after 11-year vet Eileen delivered the game ball. In the game itself, the Bills started off strong but ended off quite the opposite. The Jills however, kept it going strong from start to finish, dancing and cheering on the sidelines, posing for photos, and putting on some powerful performances.
Coming up next for the Jills, some of them will be appearing at Oktoberfest in Niagara Falls, NY on October 23rd and then they'll be in attendance for the 97Rock Away Game party on October 24th at the Aud Sports Bar in Depew as the Bills play in Baltimore against the Ravens. Another away game follows on the 31st before the Jills and Toronto Jr Jills (registration is due in one week invade the Rogers Centre for the Bills-Bears game on November 7th with the Jills' next home appearance on November 14th.
