Born in Buff, raised in NJ
Lifelong season ticket holder of Giants
Lifelong fan of the Bills
The Giants had the magical year in 86 which elevated them as they were a disaster organization prior.
In 90, my dream/nightmare came true, my two teams in the SB. At first, I felt like I couldn't lose. I watched the game with family in Buffalo.
When the dust settled, wide right happened, and I was immersed in the total heartbreak of the entire city, it changed me forever.
Anyone who is a parent of multiple kids know, you often have one kid that you know will be ok no matter what and you have another that you know might struggle more. That is the kid you secretly pull for.
The Giants always had a waiting list for season tix, they went to 3 more SB's and won 2 (FU Brady). When they achieve...it's cool.
The Bills were always a constant threat to get relocated and were always the small market and had a tougher time getting talent to stay. When they achieve....it's f-cking bananatown for me.
Since that moment in 90, I have lived and died with the ups and downs and the heartbreak of having deep emotional ties with this team.
When the Bills have success, it means more to me than anything else in sports...and most things in life.
