Justin Timberlake, who is a huge sports fan, is one of the coolest dudes in the music industry. He proved that again on Wednesday night during a concert at First Niagra Center in Buffalo.
During a little break in his show, Timberlake took a moment to deliver a lead in to his next song and he chose to dedicate the next part of his set to a man beloved by Buffalo sports fans — none other than late Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson.
While standing on top of his grand piano, Timberlake let the fans know of his tribute by saying, “Y’all know I am a huge sports fan, so we are going to do this one for Ralph Wilson.”
One fan who was very close to the stage captured video and posted the footage to her Instagram account.
Check it out below:
Wilson died at his home on March 25 of this year, due to natural causes at the age of 95.
He will always be remembered by the Buffalo Bills loyal fan base and it is great to see something as little as Justin Timberlake’s mention of his name get the crowd cheering.
This is just the latest reminder of just how much Ralph Wilson meant to the sports world and how cool of a guy Justin Timberlake really is.
