Friend wants to go to a home game..... I ask why?

Recommended Posts

Give me a compelling argument.

 

I come down 2X's/yr on average and of my group am the only "fan" watching the Bills religiously and on sites like this.

 

Yes it means a 3 hour drive with the border to cross and my friend states it is a tradition.

 

I told him there is no way I am wasting 12 hours on Sunday (3 infront of the TV is plenty) to watch this team.  It is not the losing, it is fielding a product that has been so unwatchable on Offense and absolutely no fun.

 

When was the last fun game they played?  Not talking blowing out Minny (boring as heck after the first 20 minutes) or Arizona or Oakland where the Bills actrually won by double digits.  Maybe the OT loss to Miami Xmas 2016 (and they gave that one away)?

 

I guess if Allen is back this week or after the bye and plays well, but otherwise ss there a reason to pay money and support the Bills as they are right now?

So you're asking for a friend?

Nope asking me to go as we go as a group of 4-5.

1. Get hammered

2. Watch Josh Allen

 

Only 2 reasons I can think of at this point

Tailgating is always fun no matter how the game itself is.  Otherwise I've got nothing.  But I don't even usually spend the 3 hours to watch live, I have it record then strip out commercials to watch in 90 minutes or less usually over dinner.

1. Get NICELY TOASTY AT HAMMER'S LOT AND HANG OUT WITH MANY FUN TBD MEMBERS IN A NO-NONSENSE ENVIRONMENT.

Fixed. This is my plan for the Jax game.

I'm not trying to be a debbie downer here but if you have to find excuses to go to a football game where we have one of the most entertaining tailgating scenes on the planet, just going for the atmosphere, to see Josh Allen progress or because you're just a fan than maybe you aren't into this team or football in general  as much as you used to be .

3) Watch Josh Allen get hammered. There’s a certain synchronicity there.

I'm in my 50's......  I like tailgating, but much rather do it in 70 degree weather then shivering and battling traffic.

 

Oh and would like to see a watchable football game too.....

It's pretty easy.

 

- being surrounded by people that love the same thing as you.

- dedicating an entire day to the football experience.

- drinking outside and hanging with your friends.

- supporting a team when they're bad so you can wear it as a badge of honor when they're good.

 

You should be able to have a good time at the game no matter how bad the actual team is. I always do.

if it was that long of a drive i'd have a hard time taking the trip to a game unless I got a hotel.

 

that being said its only 90 min for me and I enjoy all the festivities so i'll still be making a trip or 2 to finish out the season. attending the actual game will really just be a formality

The flaming tables will keep you warm my friend. 

 

Yeah it would be nice to see a competitive game from them. If Allen is in I'd say it will be as I don't recall us getting a blowout loss with Allen at QB unless I'm mistaken?

3-hour drive...thats all??

 

I am driving 8 for the Jacksonville game  reason why

 

1) Get tto hang with family and friends all day..yep you could do that whenever ya want, but you dont. So this is the excuse we all need

2) I get free stromboli @Hammered a Lot ..and @ Mondy nighter even had road kill beaver chile courtesy of our resident hillbilly @CountryCletus Food is always great @ the TBD tailgate. Beef on weck sliders at the Jacksonville game courtesy of @seasons 1992

3)  Get to scream obscenities at Doug Marrone for 3 hours! ( just kidding, but beating him would be glorious)

4) Beer and potty lines will be short

5) get in cheap if you don't already have tickets

6) wings in the lot after if weather decent are the best you have ever had..fried up by, you guessed it..yours truly!!!

I live in buffalo and a couple of my friends are jets fans so that's probably the only other game i'm planning to attend.  Figure make a pot of chili to top my eggs and freeze my ass off.  We both stink too so maybe it'll be a good game?

Only 2 reasons I can think of at this point

1) agreed

 

2) get so hammered you talk yourself into 80 yards passing for Allen is a step in the right direction

 

3) as much as I hate watching this team, nothing compare to watching the Bills and the season is almost over

It really does suck that the season is almost done. It goes by so fast. Such a wasted year unfortunately

The tailgate is all that matters. Football has been dead around here for over 20 years and I still have not missed a game

I couldn’t make out if it’s the first the Bills game your friend is going too.  That’s always exciting on its own merit regardless of how the team is

Been going for years and he claims it is a tradition.  Would be a December game in any case.

I'm flying from Dallas to Buffalo for the Dec 9th game against the Jets, mainly because:

 

1. It will be my first game in Buffalo

2. Going for the experience of the atmosphere

3. Hanging with family

4. Watching Josh Allen hopefully
