Lindy Ruff Talks About His Love For The Buffalo Bills [WATCH]
The Buffalo Bills hype has not been this high since the early 90s. The Bills are 3-1 and are preparing for a rematch of the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday night.
It was a different story 15 years ago; when the Bills took a backseat to the Buffalo Sabres, who were the talk of Western New York and were starting what would be a President's Trophy winning year in 2006-2007. The Bills on the other hand, were in the middle of a 17-year playoff drought.
The Sabres head coach back then was Lindy Ruff.
Ruff was the Sabres head coach from 1997-2013, and was also a player for the Sabres from 1979-1989. Lindy led the Sabres to the Stanley Cup Final in 1999 and four Eastern Conference Final appearances. He's easily one of the most beloved sports figures in Buffalo history; across multiple generations as well.
Lindy is now the head coach of the New Jersey Devils and during a recent press conference, decided to talk about the Bills impressive 40-0 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Lindy says he was on the bandwagon a long time ago.
If the Bills win the Super Bowl this season, Lindy is absolutely coming for the parade and after-party. He has to, right? Buffalo is still home to him and he always used to come to Bills games, even during the Sabres season in October and November.
Lindy, we still love you and yes, go Bills!
