If you thought that you’d miss Buffalo Bills fans having some table-breaking fun before their AFC Championship Game, then think again.

There’s an obvious love for pre-game fun and frivolity among “Bills Mafia” members. They also apparently love trying pro-wrestling-style moves as well.

So, this fan thought it would be a good idea to jump off an upper bunk and break a table. He did not have any protection on for his head. How do you think it worked out for this fan?

Let’s take a look.

The fan didn’t wear a helmet. Apparently, he didn’t need one. That’s what he thought.

Well, the fan’s neck smacked that table head-on as he was doing his best impression of a “Swanton Bomb” move off the top of a Jeep.

It looks like he didn’t suffer any serious damage to his neck. Maybe the fan was, um, full of liquid courage before taking his leap of faith. Notice that nobody was around the table itself to make sure this fan didn’t really hurt himself.

“Bills Mafia” fans just will do about anything to raise the roof ahead of their team’s games. Imagine what might happen if the Buffalo Bills beat the Kansas City Chiefs and make it to Super Bowl LV.

Earlier on Sunday, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers punched their ticket by defeating the Green Bay Packers 31-26 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. With the win, Tampa Bay becomes the first NFL team to ever host the Super Bowl in its own stadium and play in the game as well.

Buffalo Bills Fans Start Making Room For New Tables

In a sight that would make retired pro wrestler Bubba Ray Dudley happy, a local Buffalo, N.Y., sporting goods store started to collect new tables.

Dudley, when in the ring, would yell to his tag team partner to “Get the tables!” and put opponents through them in a wrestling ring.

“Bills Mafia” members were getting ready for the AFC Championship Game by going to buy some fresh tableware. The tables either are used in pre-game festivities or post-game madness.

Their goal: Smash through the tables. Do some of the fans of the Buffalo Bills suffer injuries when the tables don’t break? Well, that’s a good question. They take flight, as noted earlier, from the tops of bunk beds, the tops of cars, or by having friends hurl them through the plastic.

It’s an amazing feat of insanity that gets “Bills Mafia” members fired up before and after games.

Bills Fans And Their Love For Breaking Tables Is Legend

When did this table-breaking craze begin in Buffalo? There’s no definite date in the team’s record books. Fans, though, don’t care. They are going to smash tables whether it’s 30 degrees or minus-30 degrees outside. They’ll make room inside homes and halls to get the job done.

It doesn’t matter to them. Break a table and root for a Bills’ victory. This is a fan-based combination that, so far this season, has carried their team to the brink of a Super Bowl trip to Tampa, Fla., and Raymond James Stadium.

All the Bills have to do is beat Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. That’s it. One thing, though, for Bills’ fans to remember is that Kansas City is the defending Super Bowl champion. The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers last season to win the Super Bowl title.

So, the tables have either been set up or broken. New tables are being prepared for post-game celebrations. All “Bills Mafia” fans can do is to root for their long-suffering team to KO the Chiefs. Then they can get back to the important business of breaking tables.
