The Bills Mafia Blog would like to proudly introduce “Mafia Monday.” Mafia Monday will feature an interview between the blog writers and a featured member of #BillsMafia! This is an interactive element where members of the community can get to know each other and build unity by becoming transparent.
Today’s interview will feature Bills diehard @CaptOTM. As you may recall, before we implemented the Twibbon, @CaptOTM was a huge help during the initial ramp up of Bills Mafia, assisting Del with manually creating Twitter avatars one by one for those who requested them.

@CaptOTM: “I’ve been a diehard fan for 6 years, though I’ve watched as many Bills games as I could while growing up in California.”
Who is your favorite coach in Bills history?
