BUFFALO, NY (CelebrityAccess) — The Buffalo Bills are asking anyone with a shovel to help them dig out Ralph Wilson Stadium after the region was hit with a record breaking snowfall that in some places topped 5 feet in a 24 hour period. Another one to two feet of additional snow is expected to fall by Thursday night.
With a game slated for Sunday, The Bills are offering payment and tickets to the game to anyone willing to help shovel some of the estimated 220,000 tons of snow that need to be cleared from the stadium and adjacent parking lots.
"Want to help clear the Ralph? We're looking for snow shovelers. Pay is $10/hour + game tickets. Call 716-636-4840 for details," read a post on the team's Twitter feed.
"It's hard to tell. If we didn't get any more snow from here on out, we would be fine," Bills Vice President of Operations Andy Major told the Associated Press. "Knowing that we have another 1 to 2 feet potentially coming overnight, that just poses another challenge."
A photo posted on team's Twitter feed showed the field of the stadium covered with a pristine layer of waist-deep snow. – Staff Writers
