Posted: January 19, 2024

As the fervor of the football playoffs intensifies, a post on X from Buffalo’s very own car accident injury lawyer, William Mattar, has sparked both amusement and concern, resonating with over a million viewers. Known for his catchphrase, “Hurt in a car? Call William Mattar,” he’s now offering advice beyond the courtroom, and it’s catching on fast. 

The Post Heard Round Buffalo 

In a brief, impactful message on the social platform X (formerly Twitter), Mattar advised, “Legal advice: DO NOT jump in the pit.” This cryptic caution has left many puzzled and intrigued. What is ‘The Pit’? And why is it attracting so much attention? 

Unearthing ‘The Pit’ 

As Buffalo readies for its new Bills stadium in Orchard Park, NY, an urban legend has emerged. A fan’s leap into the construction pit preceding a victorious game for the Bills has morphed into a superstitious ritual believed to ensure the team’s success. While no subsequent pit-jumping incidents have been confirmed, social media buzz suggests fans anticipate another daring leap before the crucial Bills vs. Chiefs showdown. 

Superstition in Sports and Safety 

Mattar, a Bills fan himself, understands the quirks of sports superstitions. From his wife retreating to another room during tense game moments to his son’s lucky hat ritual, the Mattar family embodies the spirit of Buffalo’s football fervor. Yet, as much as he roots for the Bills’ triumph, Mattar’s post underscores a crucial message: safety first. 

Legal and Personal Implications 

As entertaining as the pit saga is, Mattar’s advice is rooted in genuine concern. The risk of injury in such stunts is high, not to mention the legal ramifications of trespassing and endangering others, including emergency responders. His message to the Bills Mafia and all fans is clear: enjoy the game, partake in the revelry, but steer clear of hazardous activities, especially when under the influence. 

A Community’s Response 

The response to Mattar’s X post is a testament to the community’s engagement. Fans have taken to social media with humorous takes on the pit legend, creating a sense of camaraderie and shared excitement. Yet, beneath the humor, there’s a recognition of the seriousness of Mattar’s warning, reflecting the community’s respect for safety and legal boundaries.

Whether you’re at the stadium or celebrating at home, ensure you have a safe ride planned if you’ve been drinking. And as for ‘The Pit’?
