Factoid: Yes, the Bills are the only team in NFL history to have lost four straight Super Bowls.
Life in Buffalo can be cruel.
The city sits smacks dab in the middle of New York’s snow belt, meaning there are months of bitterly cold temperatures and feet of unrelenting snow.
Once a bustling city of more than 550,000, Buffalo’s population has shrunk to a little more than 275,000. It is the nation’s third-poorest city.
You know you’re in tough town when the culinary contribution to the United State is chicken wings, the preferred food of drug addicts.
And then there are the Bills, the only franchise to have lost four straight Super Bowls.
Talk about cruel!
Can you imagine the pain of losing the Big Game year, after year, after year, after year?
The first loss was the cruelest.
Scott Norwood’s 47- yard field goal attempt sailed wide right with four seconds left, giving the Giants a 20-19 victory.
The Bills, however, might be on the brink of finally putting a Band-Aid on that open wound.
Led by the athletic marvel known as quarterback Josh Allen, the Bills are favored to win it all this year.
They might have the league’s best fan club in the Bills Mafia, a group of rabid fanatics who believe you keep your friends close and your enemies, anyone not a Bills fan, closer.
In fairness, Buffalo added hot sauce to its wings, creating the favorite food in sports bars from coast to coast. But nothing would warm the hearts of Bills fans like a Lombardi Trophy.
