WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Football fans across the country, including right here in Western Massachusetts gearing up for Super Bowl 50.
Fans stopped by the Big Y in West Springfield to grab last minute game time essentials. Customers racked up on chips, pizza, sodas and grinders, just to name a few.
The Big Y’s manager Paul Kellogg told 22News, grinders are a hot item for the Big Game Day. “We have quite a few pizza orders inadvance, as well as grinder orders, that we’re extra staffed on for tomorrow. To make sure people can get what they want for tomorrow,” said Kellogg.
Grinders are massive subs that can feed up to 15 people.
The mood in the Big Y was patriots blue, fans telling 22News they’re bummed out about the Pats not making it to Super Bowl.
A couple customers said despite not watching the Pats play, they’ll still tune in for the half time show and commercials.
