Great thread and topic OP. I got a little choked up at reading through these replies and I can absolutely relate myself. I guess it's not surprising that so many of us can when you realize it's practically been 3 decades since the Super Bowl years now. I was just a kid back then and life was so different....so so different. Both of my grandfathers are gone, One grandmother is gone(She hated football and was one of those why are you wasting so much of your time and energy on these bums during the drought era Bills kinda people...Man what I would give to see her see what the Bills have become now and how WNY has a total case of Bills Fever), and I had an Uncle that was married to my Dad's sister that was the big Bills fan of the Family and had season tickets during the Super Bowl years and I would be amazed at all of his amazing, cool Bills stories. 10 years ago he and My aunt got Divorced and he is off doing his own thing now, I am connected to him through Facebook we chat on there about the Bills sometimes but it's obviously just not the same. I am thrilled with the state of the Bills right now but at the same I keep thinking about how I just wish everything else was still the same as it used to be. It downright hurts sometimes...especially with everything else going on in this world. In a crazy way though it is comforting to know so many of you are experiencing similar or your own personal feelings. I think being a Bills fan helps you stay connected to your roots and I know if we end up winning the whole thing all those memories and the loved ones that are gone are going to be right there with me and I'll be crying like a baby...Our time is coming GO BILLS!!!
