Bills vs. Browns -- WBEN/WKRK

A massive snowstorm dumped over six feet of snow in parts of western New York including Orchard Park where the Buffalo Bills stadium is located.  The team decided to move their game against the Cleveland Browns to Ford Field, a domed stadium in Detroit.  This exact scenario happened back in 2014 when a blizzard forced the team to move a game to the Motor City.  I remember hearing about many of the players arriving to the airport by snowmobile.  This time a few Bills were dug out of their homes by an army of neighbors so they could make their flight.  Detroit is only three hours straight up I-75 from my house near Dayton, Ohio so I snagged two tickets and headed north yesterday morning.  My buddy Mitch is a long-suffering Browns fan and drove up from Columbus.  We met in Findlay and continued the drive together.  My Bills looked terrible early but ended up winning 31-23.  It was a great day!



 
930 AM WBEN is a News/Talk station in Buffalo, New York and is co-owned with the Bills flagship station WGR.  More Bills stuff here.  Here. Here. And here.
