The only thing worse than rooting for a bad team is not having anyone to commiserate with about how awful the team is. So, rejoice Bills fans -- Ed and his friend Bryon have started meetups to watch Bills games:
You may ask yourself, why would we form this club when our beloved gem of Western New York is 0-5 [now 0-6]? Because we can't endure this pain alone. We need to group together. So this is kind of like a support group for Bills fans and Western New Yorkers to come together every week for some great fun and specials at McGeary's Irish Pub as we watch our Bills.
We've found Albany has a large population of Western and Central New York expats, and even more people like Bryon and me who are second-generation Upstaters who still have family ties out west. For us, this is really a cultural event. It's really cool the sort of positive reactions both of us have already heard from WNY/CNY expat friends of ours.
The next meetup is this Sunday at 1 pm, Bills vs. Chiefs.
Somewhat related: on behalf of Upstate New York, we would like to welcome the Syracuse football team back from the ranks of the embarrassing.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
