10,000 Tickets Purchased By One Man To Avoid 2nd Straight Bills Blackout

Sad Bills Fan

Sunday’s game which features the St. Louis Rams against the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium will not be blacked out, thanks to the work of a local restaurateur. The game will now be able to be shown to all residents in a 75-mile radius of Orchard Park, as opposed to last weeks game against the Jaguars which was the first blackout of the season. The Bills are 5-7 this year, so it is only right that the fans finally get treated to some perks.

Bills CEO Russ Brandon confirmed that ‘local restaurateur Russell Salvatore has committed to purchasing the unsold inventory.’ However, these tickets are still being sold which morphs the incredibly kind gesture to an incredibly risky loan for Russell.

On his weekly radio address, Russ Brandon also mentioned that 10,000 tickets are also unsold for the Bills final home game against the Jets.

Paging Mr. Salvatore!
