A lot of Uber drivers will be driving Bills fans around town, but for one Uber driver, this weekend is extra special.

Mark Delmonte has been an Uber driver for a year, this weekend though is his busiest and best yet.

Delmonte is a South Buffalo native, born and raised, who moved to Jacksonville about a year ago. While you can move the man away from the Buffalo Bills, you can't take the Buffalo Bill out of the man.

It's why he's so excited for this weekend's playoff game. 

His family joined us in the car as he picked them up from the airport. The couple is experiencing the area for the first time and the game has a little extra meaning for them. 

"Our 6-month-old passed away in September and she was a big Bills fan. Every time the game was on she'd be watching it. We bring along her little bills onesie for good luck so I give her credit for helping the bills make it to the playoffs this year," Becky Kmitch says. 

A little angel who's spirit is with them in Jacksonville and has brought this family together to celebrate her and help them heal with the team they love.
