Betty Long can be seen at just about any sporting event in Buffalo. She is a die-hard Bills fan and has had season tickets for 37 years. She has attended four Super bowls with her friend Becky Goodwyn. Betty thoroughly enjoys being a member of the Monday Quarterback club. Everyone always looks forward to her input at meetings.

Although she enjoys football most, Betty has had season tickets to the Buffalo Sabres for 27 years and to the Buffalo Bisons for 20 years. She prides herself on missing only a few games for each team.

Before retiring she was a fourth grade teacher on Grand Island, where she taught for 31 years and served as President of the Teacher’s Association. She now serves as President of the Retired Grand Island Teachers Association.

In her free time she likes to golf, play bridge and play pinochle with her group that has been together for 50 years. So the next time you’re at a sporting event, don’t be surprised to see Buffalo’s #1 fan, Betty Long.
