Welcome back Stevie from #BillsMafia

In case you missed it, Stevie Johnson re-signed with the Bills this week. ;) Two months of stress and worry among the fanbase was swept away in one short press conference.

Bre, Leslie, and I wanted to do something fun to celebrate. Everyone loves the #BillsMafia wristbands, and we still have some from last season to spare, so we figured we’d do a giveaway…

But we wanted to make it fun and involve the Stevie news in some way. So after giving it some thought, we had a 45 minute contest window last night requiring followers of @TheBillsMafia on Twitter to post photos of themselves in Bills gear holding up “Welcome Back Stevie, from #BillsMafia” signs to show our excitement that Buffalo’s favorite playmaker was re-upping for another half-decade. Three people were picked randomly and won a wristband. We got a pretty decent response seeing how we really only gave around 20 minutes notice!

Plus we got a pretty sweet little “welcome back” gallery for Stevie.

I think I can speak for all three of us when I say it was awesome. I’m pretty sure we had more fun than those participating. And Bre put it best when it was all over…

REAL FANS. REAL FAMILY.

Anyway: Stevie, if you’re reading this… enjoy the photos below and WELCOME BACK!

About Del Reid

Del Reid became a Bills fan shortly after coming into this world, having been raised in a home that actually had a framed picture of OJ Simpson on the wall in the living room (until it came down in 1994). Del has always had a passion for bringing people together to celebrate things they share in common. As a result, he (quite accidentally) ended up co-founding the #BillsMafia movement among Bills fans in social media -- which to this point is the coolest thing that has ever happened to him aside from his relationship with God, his wife, and his two awesome kids.
