· When's Camp:
Training camp has been doing its thing for the last couple of weeks, but thankfully there’s still plenty of opportunities to check out practices, drills, and to see the players in preseason action. Upstate New York remains the Buffalo Bills home while they’re warming up, as they do their thing over at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford. There are both day practices and night practices from which to choose, but just note that the night options require tickets. There’s a day practice today, and then again on August 19, 20, and 21 to close things out before the regular season.
· What's it Cost:
Admission is free to all Bills fans during the day practices, and we’re pretty sure they’ll let you in for free even if you aren’t a Bills fan; however, we recommend leaving team gear from another team back in the car. There’s one evening practice left on August 18, and the sponsor for this is Michelin/Dunn Tire—so you need to head to a Dunn Tire location to pick up a pair of tickets.
· What Else: [Photo: Buffalo Bills]
Expect the usual stuff that we’ve seen with other NFL training camps, and that’s a good thing. However, the team seems to take things a step further. They have something called the Bills Experience, and here kids—and big kids—can run through an obstacle course, kick field goals, and toss plenty of footballs around. There’s even an autograph tent complete with schedule, so you know what to expect. Today is the kicker and the punter, but hey an autograph is an autograph.
