Heather and Mark Do Buffalo: The Bills Game

We went to the Bills game today. As the second half started I realized it was suddenly very cold, my jeans and gloves were completely soaked through by the drizzling rain, I hate drunk people especially when they're yelling "CALIFORNIA QUEERS!" and "SAN FRANCISCO FAGS!" over and over and over and over, even I could've done a better job coaching today and I know very little about football in general or the Bills specifically, the TV timeouts are aplenty and interminable, the 49ers are not that good at football, the Bills are evidently every bit as not good at football as the 49ers and football is not the same thing as hockey i.e. it's really slow and really boring.

Save me.

We've been home for five hours now and I still feel chilled right down to my bones. I currently have on two blankets, two comforters and two pairs of socks but it's not working. I'm pretty sure my teeth are chattering.

Only two things salvaged my day.

One, I finally got a chance to wear the kicking hat my mom made me for Christmas last year. Automatic favorite reader status to anyone not named Mark B. who can tell me what the inspiration for the hat is. Here's a better look:

"How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don'tcha think?"

And two, dinner at one of my favorite Buffalo eateries:

Thank God for foot longs and fries.

So yeah. That's a big FAIL on the Bills game. Good thing this is a Sabres blog.

Ted's is the best. Now I kind of want a hot dog for lunch.

My guess: Candy Corn

diebiege, while it does look very much like candy corn - I can't believe I've never noticed that before - 289 and Mags are correct. Glad to know I'm not the only Firefly fan around here.

Amy there's a Ted's within walking distance of our house. I wouldn't say that's why we bought it exactly but it sure didn't hurt :)

Disclosure: I've never seen Firefly. I just love a good Google challenge.

I miss Ted's hot dogs.... I'm really homesick now.

On the other hand, I did recently find a restaurant that serves loganberry, so not all is lost.

Mark B said...

I love the Bills and NFL football but yesterday was miserable. It really isn't an enjoyable atmosphere there - I had forgotten how obnoxious everyone is.

To bowlofpork - Mmmm Loganberry.

289, I'm yell at you for deceiving me - and everyone should have seen Firefly btw - but I am a little curious as to how you manged to google that. "Ugly orange knitted hat"? You're good :P

Heather B. said...

Wait, I know! You googled the quote, didn't you? Sneaky.

twoeightnine said...

Nope. I didn't even see the quote. I started with "knitted hat tv" and that didn't really work. I thought it might be from A Christmas Story but the knitted hat was wrong. Then I went with "knitted hat movie"and after two pages was bored. So I clicked on page 6... this came up:
So a search for "jayne hat" brought me the answer.
