Buffalo Bills shoveling effort did not go well

Bills-Jets game moved to Detroit
Friday November 21st, 2014

As you may have heard, the Buffalo-area has gotten some snow over the last week, and the residents are having trouble getting themselves out from underneath the seven feet of powder covering the town.

In an effort to get Ralph Wilson Stadium ready for the Bills to host the Jets on Sunday, the team offered its neighbors $10 per hour and tickets to the game if they would come help shovel the snow out of the stadium on Wednesday.

On Friday this is what the stadium looked like.

A valiant effort, but that's not exactly ideal game conditions. The NFL anticipated as much and has moved the game to Detroit on Monday.
