ONTARIO, CANADA -- At an average game more than 70,000 Buffalo Bills fans fill Ralph Wilson Stadium. Many claim to be die-hard fans. But most don't rise to the level of Oakville, Ontario native Bob Hall.
Unlike many fans who stick to the flags, jerseys and other nick-knacks, Bob has another creation claiming his love for the Buffalo Bills. It's a replica of Ralph Wilson Stadium made completely out of Legos.
A season ticket holder for more than 30 years, Bob has spent the last 5 years tirelessly building the replica of the Ralph.
"That's just something I've always liked to do and I've done it with my kids since they were small," Hall said. "After building a lot of the canned sets you buy at the store I started building my own stuff."
He's paid very close attention to details and it includes everything from the tunnel, scoreboard, and even the Wall of Fame.
"The passion of me with the Bills drove me to build this because I just love being there," Hall said.
Between his day job as an official at an Ontario, Canada trucking company and coaching football, Hall has spent many of his spare moments on the work of art. It took 5 years and an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 Legos.
"I never gave up," Hall said. "I was determined to finish it at one point and I finished it this year."
The stadium is tucked away in his basement and on top of a pool table. Hall said it will not be taken apart any time soon, if ever.
"It's not going anywhere," Hall said. "It can't be moved. It's not going to get torn down and my wife knows that."
Hall hopes to add a few more touches to it. His next project includes installing lights to simulate a night game. He'd also like to add a Super Bowl Championship banner. He said he hopes that day comes soon.
