Disclaimer: I have a Buffalo Sports picture library that rivals Robert L. Smith. It’s.. what I do🤷‍♂️  

Would be remiss to leave this one out...  

out of the tunnel before AFC Championship 1991Raiders  And,   One last pass to Reed that always seems to make sand get in my eyes...     The Future.

 This is one my all-time very favorite Bills photos.  Saban, Gogolak, Kemp and Carlton...1965. The year I was born. I never saw any of these guys play, but their names, and images are a big part of my coscience....  I know them more from old football cards, and my father and uncles talking about them my whole childhood. My OJ era teams, in their opinion, couldnt hold a candle to these guys.

I was living in NYC in the late 80's and early 90's.  I swear, the week of Super Bowl XXV, the Village Voice ran a column, essentially saying that the Bills were the only true New York team.  The writer was making the point that sophisticated NY sports media were acting like the Bills, and their fans were rubes. The writer picked the Bills to win the game, and said that the more ***** NYC sports people talked about the Bills, the sweeter the victory would be.  The Bills were a "special" team, and only their fans knew it...but the world would know soon enough.  The article was accompanied by a black and white photo of Cornelius Bennett, dressed in the Bills all-white road uniforms of that time, coming out of the tunnel in some NFL stadium somewhere..in the bacround you can see fans giving him *****.  He is crossing his hands over his chest,in an "X" , with both middle fingers flipping off the fans.  I have been searching 30 years for that photo, and never had any luck. It was a fantastic image.

That's me in the white hat in the bottom left corner.  Incredible game. I watched the game from the sideline holding the camera for Sports Illustrated.

It will always be the Paul Costa diving catch against the Patriots. It was one of a series of I think 6 photos you had to send away for. That photo hung on my bedroom wall for many years.

Ethan, on the fandemonium pic where you’re in it, was that the Jets win where Smerlas blocked the kick, and we won the AFCE in 88, or one of the other games?  Wondering only in that I was on the goal post for that game for all of 7 seconds until too many were trying to use me to climb up and I eventually came flying off (after I smacked my jaw against the post on the way down).  I didn’t care as it was just too much fun.  Anyway, thanks for sharing.  This thread is great, and brings back very fond memories.
