I still think it’s a bit ridiculous New Jersey will host the Super Bowl. I don’t think I want the NFL’s ultimate game decided by a meteorological event. Think about the classic Super Bowls of the past 15 years or so. Would below-zero temperatures or snow have added anything to the Giants’ victories over the Patriots or Pittsburgh’s win over the Cardinals? One of the worst Super Bowls ever came in a weather game, when the Colts defeated the Bears in the rain, in a game best remembered for Rex Grossman’s incompetence.
But then a Sunday like yesterday happens and it seems that every NFL game should be played in the snow, not just the Super Bowl.
