Football fans like to party -- not with health food, but traditional gameday fare including pizza and chicken wings.
That keeps places including La Nova Pizzeria, on West Ferry Street in Buffalo, hopping when the Bills play.
"Put some more cheddar on this chicken and broccoli. give the people what they're paying for," Carla Todaro Pantano, owner of La Nova said to one of her employees while our cameras were there Sunday.
La Nova makes the food western New Yorkers eat to ring in the start of a new NFL season. It's one of the busiest pizzerias in the country, and the Bills' opener is one of their busiest days.
"It's great for us. When the Bills are on, La Nova's is on. A lot of extra help on today. We ready for this day. We wait for it all through the year," Todaro told News 4.
For 2013, La Nova is the pizza served inside Ralph Wilson Stadium. Panto says people seem hungrier when the Bills do well, adding "It definitely helps when we win. When we win, La Nova wins. Gets busy."
The Bills showed promise in their opener against the Patriots, holding a lead until almost the end of the second half. It's a sign of progress for the team, and La Nova hopes, more hungry fans on Sundays.
