You’ll Need This to Tailgate at Hammer’s Lot this Bills Season
While things are starting to go back to a little normal-ish at this stage of the coronavirus pandemic, Bills fans are looking further ahead to what next season will look like for them.
The Buffalo Bills have announced their plans for fans in attendance -- at full capacity -- at Highmark Stadium this fall.
While the team's requirements for attendance are still in discussion -- Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and Governor Cuomo are still discussing the roll New York's Excelsior Pass proving vaccination will play:
But what about tailgating?
There's one popular lot where you'll need a clean COVID test to party.
Hammer's Lot, a popular parking and partying destination for Bills Mafia, will require proof of being COVID-free to park there this season.
"I know people who have gotten sick. It's not a fun thing. I think it's very serious. It's everybody's choice to get vaccinated or not. With the potential of you carrying the disease into my lot and maybe spread it to somebody else, I don't want that on me. I don't want to have that feeling," Eric Matwijow, the owner of Hammers Lot, said.
Matwijow posted the following on Twitter yesterday:
Bills fans had mixed reactions -- from those in full support (ready and armed with a WNY IPA 6-pack), to those who had some choice words for the lot's owner.
By and large, the Twitter feedback was positive. It seems no matter the hoops necessary to jump through, Bills fans are ready to jump through them and straight into a table by August.
WKBW reports there has been no official word from the County or State regarding if tailgating will be permitted.
