As many of you know Bills fans are everywhere, with all the Buffalo transplants. We often run into several on road trips for the team’s away games during the regular season. A good number of times I’ve run into fans when I’m away on vacation, usually south Florida. On a recent trip out of the country however, I ran into the self-proclaimed “biggest Mexican Bills fan.”
On a recent trip to Cancun, Mexico, I was approached by Nep Grande, a Bills fan who got hooked on the early 90’s teams and stayed true as a fan through a lot of the recent lean years. He works at the resort where my wife and I were vacationing. Wearing a Bills shirt kind of gave me away, but he recognized me from Buffalobills.com.
After showing me some of his photos with Hall of Famer Bruce Smith, who he met a few years ago, he asked for a photo with me. I asked him if he had been to a Bills game before, perhaps at Arizona or Dallas. His answer?
“No, I have not been to a game,” Grande said. “And when I do see a game I want it to be at ‘the Ralph.'”
Sounds like a legit fan to me. Fortunately he’s got a friend who is a Bills fan in Buffalo, so he’s hoping to make it to a game in the next year or two. Here’s a shot of Nep and I in Cancun. Bills Nation alive and well south of the border!
