  1. I just grabbed a random Bills hoodie instead of trying to figure out a lucky outfit. I did not shave. NEVER shave on game day seems to help.
  2. Just popped in to let you know it snowed lightly a few minutes ago about 80 miles east of the game.
  3. Forgive me for snipping this liberally to address only some the bands or artists with my personal comments! I really liked The Band's work with Dylan, and loved their first two studio albums. I have even driven up the hilly roads in Saugerties, NY to stop at Big Pink two times. Their third album was a bit of a dark foreshadowing of the end for me, except for some brilliant selections from that and later albums. Drugs, alcohol, and credits for who wrote the songs (and the money attached to that) destroyed them. They had a short lived resurgence with "Jericho" in the 1990's, and the Americana genre is their greatest achievement. I saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers about six months before Petty died and it was one of the best concerts I ever attended. I loved Led Zeppelin's first two studio albums the best, played loud enough to vibrate the windows Stop Making Sense was their peak for me. Before The Flood - live with The Band and the compilation The Essential Bob Dylan are favorites along, with the studio albums Blood on the Tracks and John Wesley Harding. His current tour is getting rave reviews. Yes, the rain started when they played Love, Reign O'er Me!
  4. The Who should have stopped releasing new music as The Who after Keith Moon died. I had all their vinyl releases and most of the individual's solo work, going back to the 45 rpms. I saw them once before and once after Keith Moon died. I cannot really compare the shows because the first was after the release of Who's Next at the Rochester War Memorial, in front of maybe 6,00 fans, about 1973. The second time was outside in the cold autumn rain about 1984 at Rich Stadium with 80,000 fans. Both performances were excellent but the first time was magical.
  5. My name is pretty clear. My fandom started at downtown games in the early sixties. Cheap seats were about $195 less than nosebleeds today! I got to see Cookie, Kemp, Lamonica, OJ, and more play.
  6. I care the most about a Super Bowl win. I love this team, but am tired of "close but no cigar". That is my number one dream. Having it last a decade or more would be my number two dream. It would be a little empty without the Trophy. Last championship I celebrated was AFL!
  7. The only time I really cared about the game day weather was for the home opener. It is harder to tailgate during a thunderstorm. It's these youngsters and their cell phones, dagnabbit!
  8. AccuWeather forecast now: Clear; a great evening for football Wind W 7 mph Wind Gusts 21 mph Probability of Precipitation 5% Probability of Thunderstorms 1% Precipitation 0.00 in Cloud Cover 8%
  9. How about DC's Sandman and Deadman, with Sandman's sister, Death?
  10. I doubt it. Sandman is DC/Vertigo, not Marvel. A Dr. Strange crossover could be interesting though
  11. This topic is several pages long, so excuse me if this has been discussed. The Sandman by fantasy author Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite comic book / graphic novels. I found Season One very good, but you really need to pay attention to learn about the fantasy world of the Endless. The acting is very good, and the story lines close enough for me to the original comic books. Season Two is scripted but no announcement has been made concerning its release. Gaiman maintained creative control and produced the series. Neil Gaiman created American Gods that I have mixed feelings about in the streaming series vs the novel. He also cowrote Good Omens with Terry Pratchett, which was also a series I loved. Sorry this should have been in "Notable Nexflix / Amazon / Premium Channel Series & Movies" thread.
  12. The Bills are wearing blue tops and bottoms. What difference does it make what I wear? I will have my Kyle Williams jersey on just in case.
