BUFFALO (WKBW) The ceremony, the game, the Hall of Fame weekend may be going on a few hundred miles away in Canton, but as always, Bills fans here in Buffalo are ready to rock.

"It's going to be an incredible weekend. I can't wait for both events. It's gonna be out of control," Bills fan Andrew Brooks said.

Many fans are remembering the long, storied, and now Hall of Fame career of Andre Reed.

"I think it's about time. It took him so long to get there and he's such a great player. Him and (Jim) Kelly ruled the field for years," fan Tom Glogowski said.

The Amherst Pizza & Ale House in Getzville is getting ready too, making room on their Hall of Fame jersey wall for the number 83, and will have specials and giveaways during Sunday's Hall of Fame game.

"It's a great crowd, I think it will be. People like to watch the games here, and there's a good buzz around the team," owner John Bona said.

That kickoff to the preseason is also something fans are looking forward to.

"It would be good to see some good plays, see if EJ Manuel can hold up to see what he can do his best at," fan Shane Jozwiak commented.

Bills fan Tony Ambrose is almost putting his love for the Bills ahead of true love, a friends wedding this weekend.

"So the plan is, go to the wedding on Saturday and leave basically as soon as I can. As soon as I get the wedding over with and head to Canton," Ambrose said.
