Bills Player Tweets What Buffalo is Feeling About the Snowstorm
Sometimes it's easy to forget that Buffalo Bills and Sabres players are in many ways, just like you or I.
We get lost in the drama of their profession on the field or the ice and sometimes miss the fact they have to deal with the same problems the Buffalo fans do. That couldn't be more true for this weekend.
There's a Winter Storm Warning that will be in effect for Erie County from 7 pm on Thursday until 1 pm on Friday, which could produce a few feet of snow, depending on where you live. Right now, the City of Buffalo and nearby southtowns will be the hardest hit by the lake effect snow band.
The Bills have to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at Highmark Stadium, so you can bet that there will be a whole lot of people trying to clear away the snow late on Saturday and Sunday morning, assuming the weather allows that to happen.
Bills right tackle Spencer Brown will have to deal with the heavy lake effect snow, just like the rest off us, and tweeted what we were all feeling.
It was literally degrees a week or two ago...
The Bills players will have to shovel and snow blow their way out to get to the stadium that Sunday and if you remember back in November of 2014, the NFL moved the Bills home game against the New York Jets to Detroit and made it a weekday night game, since the stadium in Orchard Park wouldn't have been cleared out in time.
Bills players were picked up on snowmobiles (or at least some were) and driven to the Buffalo airport for that game.
We're still a long ways off from that all taking place, but it goes to show how the players will battle the elements right beside the fans.
