The Most Underrated Thing About Going To A Bills Game
When you go to a Bills game, you'll notice that there is a TON of stuff that happens aside from a football game. And this one thing tends to get overlooked.
For those who have never been to a Buffalo Bills game but will be going to their first soon, be prepared. It's more than just a game.
I've thought that about football since I played back in high school, but when it comes to a pro football game, there really is a ton of stuff that's happening. In the parking lot, people are cooking, throwing footballs, jumping into tables, and playing lawn games like cornhole or washers.
Then when you get in the stadium, there's all the pre-game stuff and the in-game entertainment. There are literally thousands of people all in the same place yelling and screaming at the top of their lungs. There's food and drinks being passed around. There's music and other things happening on the jumbotron.
There's nothing like seeing the players in person, being able to say you were there when a huge play happened, and being part of a community like that.
It's a crazy busy couple of hours.
But there's always one thing that stands out if it happens - the flyover always sticks in my head.
It's easily one of my favorite things to see. For some, I'm sure it seems like it's just a waste of fuel, but when you see something like that right after the National Anthem is sung it helps you to remember why it is that we are able to sit at a football game on a Sunday afternoon. It's a quick reminder that even while we are hanging out with our friends and having fun, there are people who are willing to put their lives on the line to make sure we can be free.
The first time I'd ever seen a stealth bomber was at a football game. It was amazing. You didn't hear it coming. It was just there, and then it was gone. We've seen huge planes, we've seen some that fly in perfect formation. Yesterday it was a group of helicopters.
I was not at the game yesterday, but I'm incredibly grateful to the people who shared their videos online for the rest of the world to see. This one, in particular, that was taken from way up high in the stadium was really cool.
