Bills Announce Wacky Alternate Uniforms as April Fool's Joke
By Larry Rupp
The Buffalo Bills social media account put a good scare into their followers on Friday morning. It was announced that the team had a new alternate uniform for the 2022 season based around a city staple, chicken wings. It took a little bit of time for people to realize it was actually an April Fool's joke.
Respect has to be given in regards to the commitment to the joke here. Fans across the country received a push notification and the article posted on the Bills website seemed every bit legitimate. The only thing sticking out was the fact that the uniforms looked wacky and out of place right away.
The uniform combination includes both black jerseys and pants with a bright orange stripe down the side. The logo on the helmet resembles that of the current one, except it is made completely out of wings and ranch. The yellow face mask thrown in makes it no wonder fans were caught off guard.
The story went on to mention this is the first time Buffalo has unveiled an alternate jersey since 2015 and that this is the first time in franchise history the team will be wearing black. A couple of quotes from Bills insiders added on top made for a piece that definitely fooled some casual NFL fans.
Bills fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for the rest of the day to ensure they aren't fooled another time or two. Buffalo currently has the best odds to win Super Bowl 57 at +650, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
