The Times had a nice rundown of the Giants and Jets' bid for the 2014 Super Bowl that was just unveiled in a signing ceremony at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
It's apparently gone through every contingency, from traffic to snowstorms, in an effort to convince the other owners that a cold-weather Super Bowl would not, contrary to common opinion, summon the apocalypse. In fact, Jets owner Woody Johnson even said today that he Super Bowl would be "lucky" if it snowed.
I'm not sure I'd go quite that far. But I am, as you know, in favor of a cold-weather Super Bowl. It would pump a lot of money into the New York-New Jersey coffers. And some of the greatest games in NFL history have been played in bad weather. As for braving the elements, that's for the corporate-bigwig Super Bowl seat-buyers to worry about. The few real fans from the area who get seats already know how to deal.
The others? They'll learn. Or they'll freeze.
Who really cares?
You guys with me?
