1st Annual Blondes Vs Brunettes Buffalo game-revisited

In 2009, a new kind of football game hit the Queen City as the BvB Buffalo organization put on its first ever game in October of that year and it started off with a very heavy Buffalo Jills presence with 2 players on the Brunettes and 8 of the Jills dancers there in support. Even the Jills blonde choreographer, Kelli Wagner, was on hand for a portion of the game and showed more loyalty to her director than to her own hair color!

Blondes Jennifer, Christina, Lynn, and Jackie
Kelli couldn't stick around long as she had classes to teach at Fusion Dance Studio so she left the sign with Katie and the rest of the brunettes who, when they weren't selling raffle tickets, were cheering on the brunettes as hard as they usually did at Bills games.

At halftime, it was time for the Jills to really put on a show as they put on an inspired dance performance with 1st just the blondes and then the brunettes before they joined up to perform together.
As for the game itself, it was a close affair all game long as neither team could maintain enough momentum to get a real lead but the Jills' presence on the field wasn't restricted to the sidelines as the Brunette team's offense was powered by the running of 1998-2002 Jills alum Danielle H. The covergirl of the 2001-2002 Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar picked up 1st downs with regularity and had a big TD early in the game as well as another big play on a reverse that led to a TD the next play.

Afterwards, both teams retired to Average Joe's Sports Bar for a victory party to collect awards, eat, drink, and even got shots bought for them by the game's referees. We were joined by Jills alum Francine (2000-02), still looking as great as she did during her cheering days.

From the Bandettes comes a photo from halftime of the March game against Toronto. This started out as a pose from Chrissy and Stephanie but when a few of the girls pose for a photo, many of the other girls will usually join in! lol
