You know that group hug we suggested earlier today to salvage Jon Bon Jovi’s bid for the Buffalo Bills? The one with Bon Jovi and Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith and Andre Reed?
It might be a good idea to not invite Reed to the party.
“[F]–k Bon Jovi!” Reed tells New York Magazine, via ESPN.com. “”You might as well just take this city, throw it in the river, and let it go down Niagara Falls.”
We’ll interpret that as a “no” vote from Reed on Bon Jovi’s candidacy to buy the Bills.
Reed will be inducted into the Hall of Fame speech on Saturday night. Hopefully, he won’t grab the mic and utter similar profanities.
Then again, hopefully he will.
Regardless of what happens on Saturday night, Reed may have given the Buffalo faithful three words that will become the prevailing chant that echoes from Fawcett Stadium out to I-77 when the Bills play the Giants to cap Hall of Fame weekend in Canton.
