Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick started the beard as the weather grew colder during the football season...and today was buzz the beard day for the "Amish Rifle". A nickname teammates came up with for him and fans embraced.
Check out a few of the photos of him taken at Corto's salon in Hamburg...It was recommended by Bills Linebacker Jon Corto, whose family owns the salon.
It's a sad day for the Facebook site "Support the Amish Rifle"...it was built as Fitzpatrick's beard grew longer and longer.
Info on the page says:
"This page is dedicated to Ryan "The Amish Rifle" Fitzpatrick. Please 'like' the page to show your support of the best QB the bills have brought through here since Jimbo!"
Guess we'll have to wait until next year for the return of "the Rifle"!
