Marker Fitzpatrick still has fond memories of Buffalo [8:42 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Of his time in Buffalo, he admitted, “We were so comfortable (there) and really enjoyed it. When I first signed, everybody I knew was scratching their head ‘Why would you ever want to live there?’ I don’t think there are a lot of people (out of the area) who think highly of it. But we were welcomed with open arms right away and fell in love with the people. We really loved our four years there and made a lot of lifelong friends that we’ll keep in touch with forever.”'

Marker Bills to greet an old friend in Fitzpatrick [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s a special game for me, I think partly just because I’ve got so many great friends that are still over on the other side of the ball – guys that I’m sure are going to be excited to hit me and watch me play,” Fitzpatrick said. “Also, just the four years we spent there and just enjoyed the City of Buffalo and our neighbors and all the fans. What a great experience it was for us. I’m still trying to convince my 7-year-old (son, Brady), in this game, at least, to be a Texans fan and not a Bills fan.

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"You could tell right away he had a passion for hockey and football," O'Brien said. "He put his money where is mouth was on hockey.
