SAYING GOODBYE: In Buffalo, Matthew Spina noted the Bills on Saturday held a celebration and remembrance of late Founder & Owner Ralph Wilson Jr. at the team's field house in Orchard Park. The Bills arranged "pictures of Wilson in his youth; a portrait of him watching one of the Bills' four Super Bowl contests" and pictures of him with players during "great moments." Wilson's widow, Mary Wilson, "greeted fans as they signed a guestbook" (BUFFALO NEWS, 4/6). Former and current players, employees and thousands of fans paid their respects to Wilson, who died on March 25. The mood "was festive," as a "long line of fans snaked into the parking lot once the doors opened." Many "wore team jerseys and posed for pictures in front of the Wilson memorabilia" (AP, 4/5).
