This question is batted around in my native Buffalo a lot, and it has nothing to do with terrorist threats. It’s a perennial issue during football season, when Western New Yorkers endure another round of derisive and dismissive comments about the Buffalo Bills. They’re made fun of when they lose. They’re made fun of when they succeed; as Buffalo went to an historic fourth straight Super Bowl in 1993, columnists wrote sneering pieces about how the Bills were going to "ruin" another Super Bowl with a fourth loss. And now that the Bills (who, the national sports announcers love to remind us, have missed the playoffs 11 years running) are one of just seven undefeated clubs in the league, the haters are out in full force, confident that pathetic Buffalo will be rightly put in its place by the admittedly stellar New England Patriots on Sunday.
