Bills Franchise Quarterback Josh Allen is arguably the most beloved Bills player in franchise history since Jim Kelly.

His notoriety on the field comes from two straight playoff appearances, which ignited a spark in the spirits of Buffalonians and Bills fans across the nation. Most recently, leading The Bills to a Division title and birth in the AFC Championship for the first time since 1995 and 1993, respectively. As if you didn’t know.


However, it’s not only his play on the field that has captured the hearts of *the people*. According to The Orchard Park Sun, Allen was spotted at Cold Stone Creamery in Orchard Park this past Winter (should someone tell him about the 187 locally owned and awesome ice cream shops in WNY?), and embraced his fans with a warm smile; taking the time to pose for a picture with every fan, and even paying for everyone’s ice cream.

I guess all heroes don’t wear capes.
