We don't know what to make of reports that rock star Jon Bon Jovi might be interested in buying the Bills. (Although "from Ralph Wilson to Bon Jovi" would be a great update on "from soup to nuts" as a way to explain the gamut.)
What we do know is that if he does buy the NFL franchise that has been a part of the fabric of this community for more than 50 years, the answers to many of his questions about how we feel about the Bills eerily match up with many of the songs he and his bandmates have made.
See for yourself.
“Livin’ On A Prayer” - Pretty much covers what it’s like to be a sports fan in Buffalo.
“Have A Nice Day” - What we’d like to say to Tom Brady as he leaves the Ralph after a humiliating loss.
“Wanted Dead or Alive” - A present-day Bills quarterback as good as Jim Kelly was.
"Runaway” - Marshawn Lynch on Chippewa Street?
“You Give Love A Bad Name” - We’re looking at you, Willis McGahee!
"Shot Through the Heart" - How we feel right around 4:30 p.m. most Sundays between September and January.
"Come Back" - How we refer to a certain playoff game in 1993 or what we'll be yelling if you ever take our team away.
"The Hardest Part is the Night" - What we say when the Bills play on Monday and Thursday.
"I Believe" and "Keep the Faith" - Do we need to explain these?
"In and Out of Love" - Ditto.
"All I Want is Everything" - If everything includes a win in a game that comes with a Roman numeral.
"Open All Night" - AKA The Ballad of Stevie Johnson.
"When We Were Beautiful" - How we refer to the teams of the early '90s.
"I Love This Town" - What you should say when you also announce that you will never, ever move our team.
