I'm mostly a #2 but I've become a #9 recently.

But I'm trying real hard, Ringo, to be the shepard... #20

I think every Buffalo fan has some #11 in them.

But after watching the likes of Leodis McKelvin and Max Afinogenov, who can blame us?

Used to be a #20 but more and more being #15.
I have never thrown a F-Bomb in a game and would not even do so if Billycheat intercepted the ball and walked into end-zone with ESPN, Hollywood Donahoe and Mr. WEO saying it was the best play ever in the game of football.

buffalo brings out the 6and 10 in me, but the titans game this past year sent me into a full blown nineteener.

It was painful to watch that video....

How many times have we as bills fans been in the same exact pulling defeat from the jaws of victory scenario?

16. But I don't go for walks, I turn the TV off and pace around the room saying that's enough of this BS. 5 min later I can't stand it and turn the set back on.

Who was the toad wearing a Leaf jersey, sitting on the couch eating chips during the last two minutes...certainly not a fan.

I am all of those except the walks and the oh my god....but prolly more #9 than anything.

LOL, I do the same thing. If we are down by three TD's, after letting out an F-Bomb, my dogs run for cover and I switch the TV off. After going outside for 15 minutes, I come back in and turn the tv on thinking maybe they have suddenly come back and taken the lead....usually it's worse and I let out another F-Bomb.

I've passed thru several stages and settled on #20 .... which I equate to "acceptance" in the five states of grief.

It's funny you say this.  My dog has been "conditioned" to think whenever I utter the F word that I am furious about something.  She cowers to her chair (AKA, my recliner) and I have to comfort her and tell her Daddy's not mad.  I blame it on the Bills and the Mets.

:D Our poor dogs...we can blame them for alot of things, but the Bills are not one of them.

(waiting for the grammar police to correct me on whether "the Bills" is singular (as a team) or plural (as in the individual players collectively)...if singular, then "the Bills is not one of them")

Definitely plural...

One would be a Buffalo Bill.

When watching the Bills I am a combination of the "something bad is gonna happen", "single F bomb" and "I knew it" fan

#9 is a common type among Bills fans.
