Terrell Owens has been painting the city of Buffalo red since arriving for his new position as Trent Edwards' new buddy.

He's already received keys to the city of Buffalo, and he hasn't even played a real game. He's got thousands of fans lining up to watch him at One Bills Drive. 

Those fans have been pictured eating popcorn—and even better—Owens' limited edition cereal, on sale at Tops Supermarkets.

It's all actually pretty darn exciting.

I don't know the last time my buddies back up in my hometown were so excited about an upcoming Bills season (the last time we could have been excited, we were probably four or five).

I've had a great time seeing the smiles he's putting on faces in Buffalo, especially his guest appearance as a sports anchor on Channel 7 news back in May. He's having fun with his new role. He's being supported, and liked—something we all know he desperately wants.

I think he'll finally be on a team that fits—a team that needs a star, will embrace almost any big name (except, apparently, Michael Vick), in a city with tremendously passionate football fans.

He'll be welcomed with open arms at a time that Bills fans need him as much as he needs them.

I know, it all sounds like a big tearjerker, but when the bonding ends, that's when the NFL season begins.

As Bills fans, let's enjoy the fanfare now and get prepped to put on our game faces.

Let's help lead Trent Edwards, Terrell Owens, and the rest of the 2009 Bills team to a fantastic season.
