South Floridians who thought the Dolphins-Patriots game was played in rather chilly 55-degree temperatures are given a free pass to chuckle at this one.
The Buffalo Bills — you know, the host team to the Dolphins next Sunday — put out a call for the public to pitch in at their stadium Tuesday by shoveling snow.
On the announcement posted on the Bills’ website, the Bills requested that anyone interested “dress appropriately” and bring their own shovels, although “shovels will be provided if you do not have one.” (Random snarky question: Who in Buffalo doesn’t?)
The Bills go on to say the pay is $11 an hour, with breaks for meals allotted “in a comfortable warming area.”
This, of course, is in response to Sunday’s wild 13-7 victory over Indianapolis played in a driving snowstorm. Eight inches fell during the game, when 20 snow blowers were used to prevent the yard markers from turning to fiction. Fifteen Bills out to prove they’re real men played without long sleeves.
Getting back to the shoveling bit, the Bills were kind enough to say that those who work at least a half-day will be rewarded with game tickets so they can sit in more frigid weather this Sunday.
We’ll assume those tickets are handed over with a reminder to dress appropriately.
