'Underground Network' of Buffalo Bills Fans Track Down Bars to See Favorite Team
When the Buffalo Bills play football, bars are packed with hometown fans. But INSIDE EDITION’s Les Trent found a packed Bills bar that isn't in Buffalo -- it was across the country in San Francisco.
He found another in New York City at McFadden’s on 42nd street, which is the home base for Bills fans who live nearly 400 miles from home.
Trent even found a Bills bar in the unlikeliest of places -- Boston, home of rivals, New England Patriots.
Trent knows firsthand how fans outside the city feel; he began his career in Buffalo and is a massive Bills fan.
He calls the fans outside of the city an “underground network” and “every Bills fan knows how to find a bar.” This is because not every game is broadcasted nationally, which is why it is so important to find a place that will show the team's games outside of the city.
“You look for that kinship outside of the city. Buffalo has a strong sense of community,” Trent declared.
“Every Sunday during football season, Tim Russert would end every Meet the Press with ‘Go Bills.’ He is indicative of what it means to be from Buffalo,” Trent said. “Buffalo never leaves you.”
