Logan Couture grew up in London, Ontario, a 144 mile drive away from Buffalo, New York. As many Ontario natives do, Couture developed a love for the Buffalo Bills, a team that is charitably described as being tough to be a fan of.
Through the years Couture has tweeted a lot about the Bills, and with the NFL season quickly approaching I went through his tweets to find some gems. As usual, Couture didn’t disappoint.
Leaving the rink after a good day of hockey!! Buttt my Bills and Jays lost. So pretty rattled about that. Hanging at hotel rest of the day!— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) September 19, 2010
At 21 years old, Couture is still rattled about the Buffalo Bills losing a football game. God bless that level of earnestness.
@dwxyz I do secretly cheer for the Niners, but the Bills are my team!! I do like the Giants a little as well.— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) September 19, 2010
Whoa whoa whoa, what’s the deal here? Cheering for the Niners, at least tacitly, makes sense given where Couture plies his trade. The Giants though? As a Bills fan? C’mon man.
Just flew in to Detroit, turn on my phone and see the Bills are losing 28-7...damn— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) December 5, 2010
Still following along even as the Bills entered that contest 2-9. I guess that’s not all that surprising — if he’s stuck by the team for this long he’s in it for the long haul every season, I figure.
Hands up if you thought the #Bills would be 4-1 right now...I don't see any hands up.— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) October 9, 2011
This was the last tweet Couture sent about the Bills until the draft in 2012. That’s probably because from this point on, Buffalo won only twice. Ouch.
45-3 really? Good thing I didn't stay up and watch that game. Looks like our revamped defense is working great! Sad times to be a bills fan— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) October 8, 2012
This comes after the Bills’ got their butts kicked by the 49ers. Poor Logan.
@JamieMcGinn11 I watch the Bills for comedy these days— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) October 14, 2012
The truth is revealed... Couture watches the Bills for laughs — or, that’s what he says to get through the teary Sundays on the couch, I assume. This next tweet is sad. Prepare your hearts.
Dear Buffalo Bills...You find a new way to break my heart every week. But I continue to come back. Please stop. Sincerely, Logan.— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) November 11, 2012
Lets go Bills!! pic.twitter.com/OdayF94K— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) December 9, 2012
It’s all worth it. After tweeting about Stevie Johnson many times over the years, Couture finally got to meet. Johnson plays for the Chargers now, which may be the biggest weather gap from NFL city to city in the damn league.
Been a tough year to be a Bills fan. Decided enough is enough. Found the new QB right here pic.twitter.com/UYfpFhQq— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) December 30, 2012
Then Couture took things into his own hands. If you ever want your butt kicked on Madden, go ahead and shoot me an email, Logan.
Not a bad day to be a Bills fan...— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) September 13, 2015
This is Couture’s most recent tweet about the Bills, which makes me wonder just how excited he is about the upcoming Bills season. The team went 8-8 in 2015, which I guess is pretty good for a team hailing from Buffalo.
Godspeed Logan, I admire your dedication. My Rams will see you on Oct. 9, bud.
