The 3 Most Iconic Buffalo Bills Fans
Buffalo BIlls fans have been ranked the #1 fans in sports before, the #1 tailgaters in the NFL and probably we would rank fairly high in the beer consumption too.
Buffalo isn't all about breaking folding tables and slamming beers, though.
(Well...that's up for debate). But, the Buffalo Bills have the most loyal, passionate creative and crazy fans out of any team in any league in all of sports!
It's staples like superfans Pancho Billa, Elvis and Pinto Ron that lead the charge.
The man. The myth. The legend.
Talk about a superfan, Pancho actually lives in Dallas and goes to every single home opener and about 5 or 6 away games per year. He's been an epic fan since the 1980s.
Meet Ezra Castro or better known as Pancho Billa. Pancho, even battling cancer, made the trip to the draft after the Buffalo Bills gave him tickets and even got quite the surprise during the second round--he got to join Hall of Famer Andre Reed and Fred Jackson on stage to announce the second round draft pick for the Bills.
A moment that made the hair on everyone's arms stand up.
Pancho is a member of the Pro Football Ultimate Fan Association.
UPDATE: Pancho lost his fight with cancer in May 2019 and passed with family and friends by his side. The guy will stay a legend, who called Buffalo his second home. He was a guy that was as/more passionate about our team 1000 miles away. If we can learn anything from him is that: a positive outlook will change the world.
Pinto Ron is an epic staple in the tailgate lots for Buffalo Bills Home games. Do you know why he's actually called Pinto Ron? His real name is Ken Johnson and at the ripe age of 60, Pinto is still getting splurged with ketchup and mustard every home game.
He got his name because of his red Ford Pinto and cooking on the hood of his car. He's been going to every single Buffalo Bills game, home and away, since 1994.
If you've ever parties with Pinto, you've probably drank out of a freakin' bowling ball--a staple drink cannikin at his parties, which were moved off of Bills property.
You may even catch him out and about in Buffalo at some major events besides Buffalo Bills games.
During the week, he's a sales guy, but for 25 years he transforms into Elivs--ever since 1992 he's been waving his guitar around at New Era Field.
It started because he had a bet with a buddy to see if he could get on the big screen and to do so he knew he had to find something flashy. Enter his classic white jumpsuit and the rest is history.
