Every year during the off season we try to feature personal stories written by fans. How did you become a Bills fan? Any personal experiences as a fan you’d like to share with the rest of our BillsMafia family?
My goal as BillsMafia’s Editor-in-Chief during every off-season is to feature interesting stories written by FANS about being a fan of the Buffalo Bills. Sprinkled in with other off-season articles about the Combine, NFL Draft etc… it helps us grow closer as an online community.
From my twisted view, too much focus in the national media is placed on the rowdiest part of our FAMbase. I believe this to be the case because ‘rowdy’ elicits clicks which elicit $$ for web sites promoting outlandish fan behavior.
While those types of portrayals can be funny and entertaining, they are certainly not representative of the BillsMafia family as a whole. Our goal is to shine some light on the rest of the Bills FAMbase, the silent majority who do not get their fair share of attention as one of the most passionate fan bases in professional sports.
Many of you may have already read some of the great fan stories we published over the last couple of years. If you haven’t, go back and look at the archives because you’re in for a treat.
If you haven’t had your story published, it’s time to share your piece of Bills’ history with the rest of us! If you don’t like to write, don’t worry… just jot your thoughts down and we’ll put it together for you.
If you’re interested, please contact me on Twitter @RobynMundyWYO, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your story. 500 words is just a base guideline, you can write out as much as you wish.
We also need 3-4 pictures to go along with your story. Pictures should include full names of anyone in the photo, approximate date and place where photo was taken.
Those of you who have been on the fence about publishing your fan story – now is the time to get it done. And those of you who interact with me on Twitter, expect to be dogged to share your story.
We want to know how this great FAMbase came to be what it is… a community full of compassion and loyalty like no other fan base on earth!
Editor’s babble: Consider yourselves warned. Find me on Twitter @RobynMundyWYO and let’s geaux Buffalo.
