Kay, so I'm going to finish posting about our Buffalo trip, gosh dang it! We've been home for 2 1/2 weeks now. Sheesh. Get 'er done, Kar!
So my brother-in-law, Spence, works for the Buffalo Bills. He's the assistant equipment manager. Which I think is seriously so cool. I tell everyone about it. I think his job is so fascinating.
Spence took us on a tour of the training facilities and the stadium the day before the Bills played the New England Patriots. This is the indoor area where they practice during inclement weather OR if they just need more practice on astroturf:
The indoor practice field had some stuff on it because they were going to do a boosters thing before the game the following day.
I had a good time tackling the tackling dummy:
The practice locker room is in the same building as the indoor facility. Ben and me:
A CD (DVD?) fell down off a top shelf of one of the players. My mom reached down to put it back up, and this is how it was labeled:
is it a DVD??
I don't want to know.
So then we went to the equipment storage room. They have extra gloves, helmets, jock straps, jerseys, everything. We got to try on some helmets, which was fun:
Mom wanted to pretend that we were on opposite sides of the line:
And yes, I'm going to put these touchdown dance pictures up here again, because they're so freakin' awesome:
