Buddy Nixon and Bills Mafia Season of Tickets Giveaway: March Contest – Best Jersey

Editor’s note: This announcement about our joint contest was originally posted at BuddyNixon.com on Saturday, March 2nd.

Think you have the most unique Bills jersey around? Interested in winning a pair of tickets to see a regular season Buffalo Bills game? Than you’ve come to the right place!

Here at Buddy Nixon, we are always trying to cultivate a culture of passionate, informed Bills fans. As far as we’re concerned, there’s no better way to do that than to go watch the team in person among 71,999 other fans who feel the same way. After all, a man is only as good as the company he keeps.

That’s why we’ve partnered with the good people at Bills Mafia to bring you an entire season of tickets. Each month, we’ll be providing you with an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to go to the mecca of Buffalo Bills fanhood by proving your passion in a unique way.


This month, we’ll be focusing on one of your most personal statements of Buffalo Bills fandom: your jersey collection. Over the years, you’ve probably collected an eclectic wardrobe of jerseys worn by a Buffalo Bill that held enough of a place in your heart to elicit you to put down 100 dollars of your hard earned income in order to “represent.” Consequently, those players eventually retire, move on, get traded, and while immediately after the jersey may seem stale, the shirt gains character as it ages, like a fine wine.

Well, we want to see the finest of your wines. Go through your closet, and pick out your funniest, most obscure, most ironic, rarest, or whatever other reason that makes it great. Put it on, snap a twitpic showing the players nameplate, and tell us very briefly why it’s awesome in an entertaining way.

We will pick 5 finalists, and at that point its up to you guys to pick your favorite one. We’ll tally the votes, and whoever has the best jersey will win!

Here’s what you need to do submit an entry:

Follow @BuddyNixon and @TheBillsMafia

Tweet a twitpic of yourself wearing your jersey that clearly shows the players name on the back. Has to be officially licensed, no duct tape! And one entry per person.

-In the same tweet, tell us why your jersey is the best. Make it brief, entertaining, and convincing. With #seasonoftickets in the description. Ex) ”Check out my entry for the #seasonoftickets cc: @buddynixon @thebillsmafia”

Check back as about halfway through the month we’ll pick 5 finalists. See if you made it!

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.
