You know even though the Buffalo Bills hardly win, they still think them truer than the Jets & Giants who jumped over to Jersey to play.

“You guys think 12 inches of snow is a lot? Pssh, babies.”

Yes, yes we are babies. We see 5 snowflakes and call out of work because otherwise, we’re probably going to get trapped on the above ground N train, ok?!
