Living in western New York and Buffalo being just an hour to the west, you can't escape the Buffalo Bills. Especially when they're winning. Which they haven't been the last several seasons. Until this one. As of today the Bills are 4 - 0. That's right, undefeated so far. I shan't say more lest I jinx them.
Maybe you remember 15 or so years ago when Buffalo went to four Superbowl's in a row and lost every time? It was a fun time. Things were at a fever pitch but the disappointment was crushing. Marv Levy did his best but each time the team was skunked. Many lackluster seasons followed until now.
The family are all Bills fans except for my sister. She's a die hard Redskins fan and does not like Buffalo. Son number 1, Kevin is the biggest fan and has gone to a few games. The ironic thing is that they're having a great start and he can't watch the games. Living in New York City he only gets the Giants and Jets games. :(
It just so happened that on January 24, 1992 those two teams met in the Superbowl. The party was at our house and she brought her Redskins flag.

This is my second youngest sister with Cameron who was 2 years old at the time. Ok dear sister, I'll say it, "Hail to the Redskins!" They beat the Bills.
They also won today too.

Ain't nothing no worse than your fave team losing to your relatives fave team.

I hate it...

Course, my whole family are die hard GA Bulldawg fans!

We don't even really care for pro ball.
