If there’s a zero in the Bills’ loss column, school teachers and lifeguards in Buffalo are more than ready to empty several cans of face paint, and several cans of beer. This was true even in Week 2, when the Bills were just 1-0 and the frenzy around a team that’s now receiving national attention wasn’t at the fever pitch we’re seeing today.

Three weeks ago Paul Brothers was brave enough to hold a microphone and camera in front of the boisterous Bills faithful prior to Buffalo’s 38-35 win over Oakland. He found a clown who didn’t know what he did for a living, and a man who was never told how to properly open a can.

The end goal is all that matters, even if a few teeth are busted along the way.
