Buffalo Bills Player Says He Doesn’t Even Own a Shovel
The Buffalo Bills are scheduled to play the Cleveland Browns this Sunday at 1 pm in Detroit at Ford Field.
The lake effect snowstorm in Western New York is causing travel bans, road closures and expected snowfall totals approaching 5-6 feet when all is said and done, in the most persistent lake effect snow bands.
All of that and the safety of the players, coaches, staff and fans is why the game was moved and hopefully, the Bills can fly to Detroit in time for Sunday afternoon's game.
It's easy to forget that the Bills players have to deal with this snow as well. While some may live north of the City of Buffalo and haven't seen much snow (they will on Saturday), most of the players and coaches live south of Buffalo in areas like Hamburg and Orchard Park.
Can you believe one Bills player doesn't even own a shovel?
Bills starting right tackle Spencer Brown tweeted a photo of the heavy snow at his home, and added the fact that he does not own a shovel.
Brown added that his trash can lid is about to put in a workout.
Bills star edge rusher Von Miller also tweeted a video of the heavy snow at his home, which is smack-dab in the epicenter of this snowstorm.
Most people should be able to leave their homes by Monday morning, but the Bills players will have to find a way out of the snow and to the airport by tomorrow afternoon, as they have to fly to Detroit for Sunday's game.
The lake effect snow band is expected to impact the northtowns and Niagara County on Saturday, which gives the City of Buffalo and southtowns a chance to clean up.
