Buffalo Bills Fans Having Fun While Getting Paid to Shovel Snow at Highmark Stadium

A fan of the Buffalo Bills was really excited before their big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was at Highmark Stadium, helping to clear snow.

In a video, he took a fun break. He took off his shirt and slid down the snow chute, like a slide. This made the other people helping to shovel snow laugh. Then, they all went back to work.

The game between the Bills and Steelers was supposed to be on Sunday, but it got moved to Monday. This was because of a big snowstorm. The Bills asked their fans to come to Highmark Stadium to shovel snow. They paid them about $20 per hour for this.

The snowstorm was expected to bring 1 to 3 feet of snow. Because of this, it was hard to travel in most of Erie County, New York, until Monday morning. The Steelers team came to New York on Sunday and began getting ready for the game.

Eric Wood, who used to play for the Bills, remembered his first big snowstorm in Buffalo with The Associated Press. This happened in November 2014.

During that storm, Wood and other Bills players were stuck in the area. They had to be taken to the team's place on snowmobiles. Then, they were bused to the airport to go to Detroit. Their game against the New York Jets was moved to a different place because of the snow.

"The whiteout conditions are like nothing I had ever experienced," Wood said to the AP. "Until you experience this snow and understand its effect, it’s hard to appreciate what can truly happen in such a short amount of time, and often without notice."

The Bills take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at 4:30 p.m. ET at Highmark Stadium.
