What Did the Southern Tier Look Like the Last Time the Bills Had 10 Wins?
I am a die-hard Eagles fan. My wife Chris is a Buffalo Bills fan who has adopted the Eagles as her second favorite team because of me.
I root for the Bills as well because it makes her happy and I've always felt bad for the Bills fans because of the whole 0-4 in the Super Bowl thing. I know how happy I was when Philly won it two years ago and I would love for her to have that same feeling. I would have no problem with the Buffalo Bills winning it all. That is of course if the Eagles don't make a miracle run this year.
But I started thinking, the last time the Buffalo Bills had 10 wins in a season, how many businesses in the Binghamton area that are just memories now were still open. The last time the Buffalo Bills had ten wins in a season was 1999. A bunch of Binghamton businesses have shut their doors over that 20 year span.
Here's a list of a businesses that popped in my head that were still around at that time. See if I missed any.
Speaking of Vestal, we had Ken Wilson Chevrolet in that iconic building on the Parkway. We had the Mexican restaurants Delgado's and Chi-Chi's in Johnson City, and Ponderosa Steakhouse restaurants in Vestal, Johnson City, and Binghamton.
So, what am I missing? If you can think of any other businesses that were open in the Binghamton area in 1999 and have since closed?
And Go Bills!
