Just not the Pats

Recovering Bills fans carry the yoke of Super Bowls XXV through XXVIII the best we can.  Four straight appearances – an NFL record; all losses.  The one bright spot to come from all our suffering is Buffalonian Vincent Gallo’s critically acclaimed indie film Buffalo ’66.

This season, the Bills ended what had been the longest active playoff drought in the NFL (17 years).  Understandably, this was a big deal for the city and the #BillsMafia.

Playoff caliber

Suspiciously, the start of this drought coincided with the hiring of head coach Bill Belichick by division rival New England in 2000.  Under Belichick, the Patriots have gone to seven Super Bowls, winning five (for the 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, and 2016 seasons).

Losing is one thing – having to watch your nemesis win is another kettle of fish!

So, there was little surprise (and maybe a little pride) to find that the following parody making the rounds on social media was minted in Buffalo.

Eagles fans, the #BillsMafia stands with you.

Fly, Eagles, Fly!
