PARRINO: "Bill-ieving" defines us all

(Continued)

Tonawanda News —

The Bills help us deal with, at times, the harsh reality of a broken-down city. Austen may have said it best when talking about why we've been able to stay loyal to the team: "Because Buffalo (has) fallen so far, it clung all the more to its football team — a last vestige of its former prominence as a 'major league' town. At least for 16 games a year, the city remained part of a national conversation. The Bills offered a possibility of redemption."

We'll always show up on Sunday because it's who we are as a community and it's what we expect out of our team. It's something to be proud of and something we should all remember.
