Can the Bills have Spanish cheerleaders for that game? Please?

That thing looks like my mother's Sunbeam electric frying pan, circa 1965. 🤔

Can we send a more competent team than the Jags to exhibit our sport to unfamiliar international audiences, ferchris'ssake.

OK, then.  Do they have a number for trillion?  I took Spanish in high school, but that was so long ago, they didn't have numbers that high!

I took it in high school too, I didn't know that Spanish numbers went past 10.

I vote no.

 

 

Enough with overseas games

 

Bad for players,

 

Bad for fans,

 

Good for owners pockets.

They volunteered, they wanted to see what it was like to have fans at a "home" game.

Your vote appears to be a little late, the 17 game schedule also led to more international games.

one trillion= 1.000.000.000.000.000.000

one quatrillon= 1.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000

 

one billion in spanish is one millon of millons, in english is one thousand of millons

Thanks for clearing that up for me.  I have now learned something new for today!  (I think I'll stick to the little numbers.)  😁

Just a note.  My Spanish is rudimentary, mostly I use it to curse Spanish telemarketers very effectively, so the text I posted was from Google translate.

Rudimentary is fine. Start with donde esta el bano. I found that to be extremely helpful in Spain!

That's metric million $$'s.  You have to divide by 25/4 

 

... or multiply, whichever comes out bigger!

Certain places are better for certain things.

I'd rather eat olives in Madrid, and I'd rather watch the Bills in Orchard Park.

Olives are gross. 🤮

 

I get your point and wouldn't want to lose a home game for it but they have to travel to Seattle or Western Europe, it's not that much of a difference, they arent flying Spirit.

 

I am actually in favor of the 17th game being played at netural international site followed by a bye in addition to another bye week in schedule

Went to Madrid and the Bernabeu in November 2005. It was quite cold. So I took the big coat to the match. 5 minutes in sat in the top tier and I was sweating like a hippo in power shower. Looked up and there were heaters in the stand roof. Should’ve worn shorts and t-shirt.

 

Madrid won 5-0. Goal scorers were Figo, Ronaldo (the original) x 2, Beckham and Owen. Lovely stuff.
