One of the shovelers at the Packers-Giants game was having a rough day, and what's with those Fox snow graphics?

The snow started falling in earnest shortly after the Packers-Giants game began Sunday morning at MetLife Stadium prompting staff at the venue to shovel over the yard lines on the field during breaks in the action.

The shoveler assigned to the 10-yard line? It didn't go so well. In fact, it required a second go-round.

In fairness, who among us is actually at our best in the driving snow? I mean, we've all tried to park on a snow-covered lot, right? Those lines are hard to find.

The Fox broadcast also superimposed number markings and hash marks on the field, as well, a maneuver which got some mixed reviews.
