The Buffalo Bills announced on Wednesday that they will retire legendary running back Thurman Thomas' No. 34 on October 29, when the team hosts the New England Patriots for "Monday Night Football".

When it's your birthday AND you find out your number is getting retired.

Pro Football and College Football Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas will receive one of the ultimate honors this fall.

Yes, it has taken this long for the Bills to do something you'd assume had been done years ago. I couldn't have done this without the fans. You can be on the road in Miami, or New England, or NY and still see Buffalo Bills fans everywhere, so I think that makes it a little bit more special.

He also made fun of Patriots players for sounding like robots (with a choice word mixed in) during interviews. Oh, and don't bother trying to back up those claims because everyone knows they're B.S.

Texas, Alabama Football Teams Schedule Home & Home Series
Texas (898/2nd NCAA) and Alabama (891/5th NCAA) have combined to play 248 years of football and post 1,789 all-time victories. The Crimson Tide defeated the Longhorns 37-21 in that game, but Texas still leads the overall series 7-1-1.

Shouldn't his movie follow suit? There are some fine action sequences, and some that don't make much sense at all. Finally, I'll add that the ending felt a tad anti-climactic, especially after the big Kessel Run scene.

"I guess it kind of solidifies the top three guys for this organization", Thomas said.

Inducted onto the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame in 2005, Thurman Thomas will join Jim Kelly (#12) and Bruce Smith (#78) as the only players to have their numbers retired by the Bills.

Thomas spent the first 12 seasons of his 13-year career in Buffalo after the franchise selected him in the second round of the 1988 National Football League draft. The jersey retirement will be nationally televised, as the Bills vs. Patriots clash will take place on a Monday night.

Thomas will become the third player to have his number retired. "I really appreciate that and my family appreciates it".
