Pancho was notified by his doctors Friday that he would be able to go to Buffalo for the Bills game Sunday.

“Looks like I am going to BUF! I am still weak and recovering but going to trust the man above to get me through the weekend. I am beyond excited to be present to accept the award,” Pancho said.

The presentation will take place at a tailgate party in the rear parking lot of Danny's restaurant.

Chris Berman will be giving Pancho a call at 10 a.m. to congratulate him as well.

The Buffalo Fan Wall of Fame will be a tribute to the Fans and their dedication to being a #1 Fan.” Therese Forton-Barnes, director of Strategic planning for the BFLO Hall of Fame Experience said.

The BFLO Hall of Fame Experience consists of a Board of Directors from three Buffalo Halls of Fame: Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame, Buffalo Music Hall of Fame and Buffalo Broadcasters Association.
