Buffalo Bills Offer To Pay Fans To Help Shovel Snow From Ralph Wilson Stadium
More than five feet of snow hit Buffalo and other parts of the northeast yesterday. When the Buffalo Bills host the New York Jets this Sunday, the temperature at kickoff is expected to be in the 50s. However, more than six feet of snow is currently in Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills showed just how bad the stadium's conditions are in this tweet.
If the team waited for the snow to melt later this week, Ralph Wilson Stadium would flood. Instead, the team is offering to pay anyone $10 per hour and free game tickets if they help shovel the six feet of snow out of the football stadium. Mike Rodak, who covers the Bills for ESPN, tweeted that the team might need 500 shovelers in order to have the stadium ready for Sunday's game.
As if things could not get any worse, more snow has started falling again in the Orchard Park area where the stadium is located. There is a chance that the NFL could postpone the game or move it to another site if Ralph Wilson Stadium is not ready in time. Hopefully, for Bills fans and the city of Buffalo, that does not happen.
