Anyone who’s ever seen a late-season Bills game in Buffalo, New York, where snow piles up on fans as they sit in sub-freezing temperatures, has likely watched with a combination of confusion and pity.
“Who are these people watching football in a Zubaz-filled Siberia?” you wonder. And, moreover, why do they all look so happy?
Until the 2021 regular season, Bills football was definitely not the reason for the happiness. And though you could point to the excessive amounts of Labatt Blue consumed in the parking lot, the real reason is this: Winter in Buffalo is a lot of fun.
Sound insane? To one who has only experienced the joys of a Western New York winter from afar, it might. But spend a few days exploring the snow-covered backcountry and delving into Buffalo’s downtown winter delights, and you too will understand why Bills fans look so darned delighted.
