This comes about because of that LeSean McCoy to the Bills trade from last week. Sure, everyone wants to think about how much better the Bills ground game might be, or what the Eagles plan to do (or why they did it). But, does anyone stop to think about how fucking awesome it is to be a Bills fan?
First off, yes, I realize, no one has typed that sentence in about 20 years (if ever). But secondly, and more importantly, it’s true.
Think about it… You’re a Bills fan last week, minding your own business, focusing on whatever it is that’s captured your attention for the moment… snow, how underwhelming the movie Focus is, whatever… and then, boom, out of absolutely nowhere, one of the top five running backs in the league (and definitely top three if take out child beaters and overworked Cowboys) lands in your lap.
It’s one thing to be a fan of team pursuing a player, and then to eventually land said guy. Sure, getting LeBron James back as a Cavs fan is amazing. Even doubly so because of the history you had with the dude. But, those people out there had an inkling it might go down.
Bills fans? Absolutely no way. And that is the fun of it.
Polar Opposite of this Feeling? Looking back at this move at the end of the season, realizing how excited you got and then glumly looking at your 7-9 record and 900 total yards for McCoy. Or, that foolishly purchased home McCoy jersey.

Very funny and very true. As a Yankee I have had these moments way to many times!
At least Shady will have Matt Cassel to take the pressure off of him back there.
