Forbes rates Buffalo a top tailgating city

This won't come as a surprise to any of the diehards who surround Ralph Wilson Stadium hours before kickoff on Sundays in the fall, but the Buffalo Bills -- or more so, their fans -- have appeared on a list of top tailgating cities.

On its Web site, Forbes Magazine lists 10 such NFL locations. The list is in alphabetical order, but since Buffalo is the first city listed, that makes it No. 1, right?

Here's the link to the story, and here's the description given to describe the Bills' game-day experience:

"Buffalo always ranks high on the tailgating roster, partly because of the city's incredibly long tradition of tailgating, but also because it offers the greatest variety of parking space for doing so. Arrayed around Ralph Wilson Stadium are lots for car tailgating, RV tailgating, bus tailgating, and limousine tailgating. The 'Bills Army' takes maximum advantage of this every home game (lots open five hours before game time), and the party reaches a truly professional level amid the odors of kummelweck, hot wings, and chili."

Not a bad description, although we spell "kimmelweck" a bit differently around here.
