Steve Tasker's Tales From The Buffalo Bills
With the assistance of award-winning sports columnist and author Scott Pitoniak, Tasker provides readers with insightful vignettes of colorful Bills personalities such as Levy, Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith, Thurman Thomas, and Ralph Wilson.
He details the euphoria following the BillsÂ’ miraculous comeback from a 32-point deficit against the Houston Oilers in that 1993 Wildcard game, and the devastation after Scott NorwoodÂ’s kick sailed wide right in Super Bowl XXV.
There are humorous momentsÂ—like the time Ray Bentley nailed Fred SmerlasÂ’ cleats to the locker room floorÂ— and the time Hall of Fame coach Hank Stram mistook Tasker for a caddie. And there are poignant momentsÂ—like the morning Levy told his players he had to take a leave of absence to undergo surgery for the removal of his cancerous prostate. Tasker takes the reader inside the helmet of NFL players, describing for them the deadly efficiency of the BillsÂ’ no-huddle offense ("There were times when we felt like we were unstoppable") and the effects of a jarring hit ("ItÂ’s like being in a violent car wreck").
