Bills, $24,000 worth of Labatt beer headed to Los Angeles for Week 1

Buffalo opens the 2022 season on Thursday night against the Rams at SoFi Stadium

In less than a week from Thursday, the NFL's loudest — and maybe the drunkest — fan base will descend upon Los Angeles, making the trip out west to cheer on their beloved Buffalo Bills in their season opener against the Rams.

SoFi Stadium should be rocking on Sept. 8 with Buffalo facing one of its toughest tests of the season to open the 2022 campaign against the defending Super Bowl champs. The matchup is a made-for-television spectacle headlined by quarterback Josh Allen, his Rams counterpart Matthew Stafford and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.

"Bills Mafia" has always traveled well, especially for prime-time games, and next Thursday should be no different with Western New Yorkers expected to make their presence felt in Inglewood, coming out in full force for one of the most anticipated matchups of the season.

To that end, preparations have already begun with Buffalo delivering shipments of Labatt Blue — preferred beer of Bills fans everywhere — to Los Angeles.

Though many applauded the gesture, others were mildly insulted, scoffing at the notion that $24,000 in booze would be enough to satisfy a ravenous fan base known for its legendary beer consumption.

You'll be pleased to know that SoFi Stadium also boasts four tailgating lots (Lots I, J, P and Q), offering plenty of space for Bills diehards to perform their pregame ritual of sacrificing tables to the football Gods.

Of all the things we've missed about football these past seven months, the chaos and insanity of "Bills Mafia" might top the list.
