The Jills at the Bills preseason finale


Sara and Laura in the tunnel before the game The Bills finished off their 2011 preseason in front of what was advertised as a crowd of just over 40,000 but in reality was a lot fewer. The game on the field wasn't anything to write home about as is typical in the final preseason matchups in the NFL. But to say the game was meaningless in the grand scheme of things would be a lie. The final preseason game is a chance for players on the bubble to prove their worth, not only to the team they're suiting up for, but to the rest of the league. In addition to the players, fans get to put the finishing touches on tailgating plans for the season and the Jills get a last chance tune-up to show how ready they are for the home opener.

5th year vet Laura, the co-captain of the Jills Ambassador Squad was chosen as the Jill of The Game before joining Sara in accompanying Billy Buffalo for the game's many promotions.

Next up, meet some of the Jills at Jamestown's The Q on 2nd street next Sunday the 11th as they will be on hand for a big Bills Opener Tailgate Party. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door with a limit of 500 total to be sold.
The full squad is back in action for the Bills Home Opener on September 18th as the Bills play host to the Oakland Raiders. Be sure to swing by the Healthy Zone Fieldhouse to meet some of the Jills Ambassadors before the game as well as the 97Rock and Shredd & Ragan Tailgate parties. Back this year will be the pregame performance by some of the Jills dancers at the Shredd & Ragan Tailgate party, a big crowd-pleaser last season.
