HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — Sitting at the table in her living room, Beatrice Morehouse is working on her latest puzzle.

“This is a hard one,” she said.

Puzzles have helped pass the time for this 93-year-old from Hamburg during the pandemic.

“I’m kind of in the house a lot,” said Morehouse.

Puzzles have also helped pass the time between, get this, Buffalo Bills games.

“I mean you’re just counting the days. I can’t wait until the game!”

Bea is a huge Bills fan. Her loyalty dates back years when her grandsons picked up the sport. :They’ve been underdogs for so long,” Morehouse said of the team.

93-year-old Bea Morehouse enjoys a Bills game with family.

Who is Morehouse’s favorite player? None other than Josh Allen. “He’s so young and he’s come along so well.”

Morehouse said she’s superstitious. She’s got a ritual when it looks like the other team’s going to score or the Bills fall behind.

“I quick turn my shirt around so the front is in the back and the back is in the front. Someone told me that’s good luck, so that’s what I do.”

Bea said it works every time. She’s prepared to do it Sunday when the Bills take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championships if need be. “We’re going to win, definitely.”
