With the spookiest of holidays right around the corner, it seemed a perfect time to share this article with AFL fans. I have seen several snapshot photos of the early Buffalo Bills enjoying themselves at Halloween parties, but really never knew much about the events. The following piece was published recently in the Buffalo News, and is just one more illustration of how much the AFL players truly enjoyed each other and bonded as teams. The Bills of the mid-1960s not only had one of the most talented defenses in league history and a future politician at quarterback, bet they also seem to have thrown the greatest Halloween parties in professional football. Enjoy!
The Buffalo Bills Loved Halloween!
