QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills CEO Russ Brandon on the Uniform Launch Event this Friday night and fans having access to the field (from Norton in the Morning; 97 Rock 6/21/11) You get excited when you see little kids out there running around on the field for the first time and people out there acting like little kids. This is one of those events where there will be a lot of people and a lot of activity.  It will be a fun night for everybody.

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
In 2009, the Bills wore a special AFL white uniform to commemorate 50 years since the inaugural American Football League season in 1960.  The jerseys also featured a patch honoring the 50th season.  That year the Bills also wore a patch on their standard jerseys to recognize the team’s 50th season.
