Senior living facility celebrates Bills spirit, calls on Rex Ryan to visit

WHEATFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) –  Some of the very first Buffalo Bills fans live at the Elderwood Senior Living facility in Wheatfield. To celebrate what they hope to be a successful season, they put together a music video to capture their passion.

Dorothy Simiele, Elderwood Resident, said, “If you’re a true Bills fan, you’re loyal to the end, through the good and the bad years.”

Like Simiele, many of the residents who live here at Elderwood are part of the original Bills fan club. Every game-day they get together in front of the big screen and cheer on their team.
Vickie Zarzeczny said, “It’s something we look forward to every week. We get to know our players and everything, I don’t think we’re too happy with the new colors we have, though!”

Many are born and raised as Bills fans, and went to all four super bowl games.
So to show off their fandom, they put together a music video.

Nicolette Holland, Administrative Assistant  at Elderwood, said, “It’s so much fun here, and we wanted to show that to everybody so everyone could see. So someone mentioned trying to get rex ryan to come here and we kind of ran with it.”

Darlene Heim, Elderwood Resident, “We had a ball. We had more fun she had us laughing, I don’t know how many times we’ve gotten together they do a lot of fun things here.”
But now they’re calling on Rex Ryan himself. Many of the residents can’t get to the Ralph anymore, and they want to meet their new coach.

“I hope he saw it, I hope he enjoyed it and I hope he comes,” said Marie DiFrancesco.

Holland said, “They really have so much energy and they are just such great people and they really are die hard Bills fans, they’re like the first ones!”  And two things they say you need to be a die hard bills fan? Loyalty and hope.
DiFrancesco said, “f you’re a Bills fan, you’re a Bills fan. From the day you’re born until the day you die.”
