Born and raised between Buffalo and Rochester. Moved to NC in my early 20's. Returned late 30's. Left again early 40's. And now call central PA home. Still only a 3.5 hour drive to get home for a visit and a game. Or as old people say, a nice Sunday drive

Born and raised in WNY; lived in or around downtown Buffalo from the mid nineties until 2005. 

 

I hedged on whether or not I currently live in Bills territory. By zip code it's New Orleans, but I live 6 blocks from the local Bills backers bar, so...

It was the BEST!  Most of the falcons fans who were there weren't even watching the game

 

 

 

That was my first time in the new stadium. I think all the Falcons fans were in line for cheap beer and hot dogs at the concession stands! They backed up like the Bills restrooms! The difference is....... I can give up and skip the snacks, which I did at least twice.

I live about 5 minutes from the stadium. 

 

I’m genuinely shocked by this thread with how few people are from Buffalo.  Not in a negative way, just didn’t realize how spread out the members are.

I reside in the Town of Tonawanda. I am eating my lunch watching hole number 4 at Brighton Golf Course...

 

As a very young kid I lived in the Town of Tonawanda and used to love Brighton Donuts. You mentioning "Brighton" Golf Course reminded me of them. Are they still there? Maybe @oldmanfan would remember them.

If you live in any there are lot of ways to get your Bills fix.  Not so if you live someplace else.  That's why there are so many out of towners here.

I have found Bills bars in NYC, DC, Bastan, TX, Cali, Seattle and having driven across country 5 times... bumper stickers and people with shirts and hats... literally we are everywhere... even in Europe

I haven’t been to KC, but Green Bay is pretty cool. It’s in the middle of a residential neighborhood. When you start getting close to the stadium, the houses have signs in the yard saying “Park and Pee - $20”. As you get closer, the prices go up. You can park in the yard and party there, then use either the bathroom in the house or the porta potties in the yard. It’s......”unique”, as far as I’ve seen.  My generous host said he rented from a young guy who had 2-3 houses around the stadium and he covered his expenses on that small number of home game rentals every year. Pretty nice house, too! 

 

I’d also throw in Nashville as high on the fun list. The tailgate is not nearly as wild, but it’s a good setup, and post game you take the pedestrian bridge into downtown to explore the adult play land of options for drink, food and music. Last time we sat next to an elderly couple at the stadium, probably pushing 80. I thought she might bake me cookies....until the game started and she started cussing like a sailor! Took me by surprise! But their fans are certainly tame compared to our crowd. 

 

Bottom line, we also are unique - and the best for my money!

I’m not surprised by how many people are not currently from Buffalo, but the people who were never from Buffalo I find interesting. 

 

Living in Atlanta so many people are transient, usually coming here for work. People often stick with what they grew up with. I know I did. I can’t say I know a real Falcons fan, but you occasionally see some gear around town. People tend to have a college team here.

Makes sense though. We can't talk about the Bills "around the water cooler" so we have to come here to get our fix.

You’re right! I’m in Atlanta, and my next door neighbor is from Tonawanda. If I scream the Shout song out the window.....the other neighbors might try to have me committed. She would just laugh as they pulled up to take me away!   😋

I'm now in South Carolina so Panthers and Falcons get all the coverage.  There are lots of Bills fans in the area.  Good way to meet people wearing some kind of Bills gear.  More tee shirts than sweatshirts down here.  Used to live in CT and awful territory between Pats and Giants fans.  Glad I escaped.

In Allegany County it's definitely Bills country. Same for when I was growing up in Rochester. When I lived in Syracuse it seemed evenly split among Bills, Jets and Giants. 

 

I lived in Allegany County in the 70's. Most people (young and retirees) move away from there, so I'm surprised you moved to there after Rochester and Syracuse. What part?

Bills territory/Bills Country. It’s a state of mind more than geology. Born & raised in WNY, been a fan from their inception. I now live in significantly better climate -by choice, but still attend a game live from time to time and my fandom is as rabid as ever.

Why the reason for the inquisition? 

My friend from NT - both of us transplants!

Now that we understand your geography better, please explain how state of mind relates to geology..... and I agree attending a game live sure beats attending one dead.

 

Sorry, I couldn't help it.   😁
