Books: by Title: The Buffalo Bills: An Illustrated Timeline of a Storied Team
By Greg Tranter, and Budd Bailey
The bonds between the Buffalo Bills are deep and numerous, and they’ve never been as strong as they are right now. The Bills currently rank as one of the best teams in the National Football League, and they certainly are one of its most exciting teams as well. With an ardent fan base that is second to none, no wonder the most popular phrase around Western New York these days is “Go Bills!”
Such loyalty has been built up during the 60-plus years that the team has played football. There have been amazing highs and discouraging lows during that time, and those moments are all brought back to life in The Buffalo Bills: An Illustrated Timeline of a Storied Team. The Bills were born as members of the American Football League in 1960, and they soon rose to become champions in 1964 and 1965. The team has had some great moments since then, including record-breaking performances and a run of four straight Super Bowl appearances in the early 1990s that may never be duplicated. Meanwhile, some of football’s top players—Jack Kemp, O.J. Simpson, Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs—have worn the Bills’ uniform.
Authors Greg D. Tranter and Budd Bailey have seen almost all if it, from “The Hit ‘Heard Round the World” to Damar Hamlin’s “Did we win?” after waking up in a Cincinnati hospital. Their recounting of such stories fill a book that will make you want to “Shout!”
