Snow Way: Weather Keeps Patriots Stuck In Western New York Overnight

How do you celebrate an AFC East division championship? By being stuck in Rochester, NY overnight.

In their press conferences following their AFC East clinching 34-3 drubbing of the Buffalo Bills, members of the New England Patriots, including Tom Brady, indicated that due to hotel shortages, they would be traveling to Buffalo's neighbor to the east, Rochester, to spend the night. The blizzard currently hitting Boston is keeping the Pats from flying into Logan tonight.

According to WEEI's Mike Petraglia, Tom Brady quipped in his post-game press conference:

Buffalo's hotel shortages are due to the World Junior Hockey Championships, which kicked off today. The Pats may find that Rochester, the birthplace of Kodak cameras and Xerox copiers, is a good place to celebrate. The average price of a Sam Adams in Rochester? Approximately $3 - much cheaper than Beantown.
