New York State Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced his plans to attend the Buffalo Bills playoff game, after having instituted one of the country's strictest lockdowns.
The good news for fans is that they will be able to piggyback on the Governor's sudden change of heart regarding football games, to the tune of 6700 people who will be allowed to enter the stadium.
Cuomo has become quite the Bills fan recently, and it appears that possibly his affinity for the football team has made him think twice about his restrictions and allow for in-person attendance at the games.
In an astonishing reversal of previous stances, Cuomo during a press conference on Wednesday said: "We can’t take six months, nine months, 12 months, more of a close-down, We can’t take the economic cost, we can’t take the psychological cost, we can’t take the emotional cost."
"It’s not about a football game as much as it is ‘how do you reopen the economy,’ and that is a question that concerns everyone."
"I don’t see a key to the door beyond this key. Really the only key you have is rapid testing. So we will be aggressive in exploring it, and that’s what we’re doing now. If it works there, could you do Madison Square Garden? Could you do a theater on Broadway, could you do a certain capacity in a restaurant so restaurants can reopen safely? That is the road we are looking at."
