(NEWSER) – The Buffalo Bills are supposed to play the New York Jets on Sunday, but there's something standing in the way: The 220,000 tons of snow Ralph Wilson Stadium and the surrounding area was buried in by this week's freak storm. The team is looking for people to help dig out the stadium and is offering $10 per hour—plus free game tickets. "We're looking to have 500 shovelers on site working those triple shifts," a team spokesman tells the Post-Standard, urging would-be shovelers to call 716-636-4840. "We don't have a minimum number.
We can't have too many people helping," he says. With yet more snow set to fall, the game may still have to be moved or postponed, and the NFL says it's working with the Bills to determine the state of the stadium, reports the New York Daily News.
