Greetings from Ralph Wilson Stadium

By Tim Graham

What a gorgeous day at Ralph Wilson Stadium, where the Buffalo Bills will open their preseason against the Washington Redskins at 7 tonight.

As of this posting, the temperature is 74 degrees, humidity is 65 percent and winds are light in Orchard Park. The sun is shining with very few clouds. The Buffalo Jills are rehearsing on the field.

Tonight's exhibition won't be shown live on local television because it didn't come remotely close to selling out. The game will be shown on tape-delay Friday or Saturday in the various Bills markets.

Earlier this afternoon, I wrote a blog post of the top handful of things I'll be watching for tonight. As the game draws closer, I find myself getting increasingly more fascinated by how Vince Young will look. His offseason has been shaky at best, but putting him on the field against another team might spark him.

With NFL officials in a labor dispute with the league, there will be replacements tonight. The referee will be David Scott.
