It was just a few years ago when the world was bitching about Detroit holding a Super Bowl at Ford Field – which is covered with a roof. Today, the NFL released its 2014 Super Bowl logo featuring the George Washington Bridge and a snowflake. That’s right, folks, the NFL has turned into the NHL and actually wants you to freeze your ass off with an outside game in February. In New Jersey. They’re actually hoping for a light snow. Seriously. Already hoping for snow!
Via NBC New York:
“I think that’s great,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday. “A little snow would be great for us. But whatever comes our way, we’re going to be prepared for it.”
“It’s football like it was meant to be played — in the open, exposed to whatever winter throws our way,” the new print advertising campaign for the game states.
BC was in Detroit for Super Bowl week and it wasn’t that bad. Lower 40s. Some sun. Not much wind. There weren’t beach volleyball games breaking out on the Detroit River, but it wasn’t bad. And Ford Field was just blocks from casinos, dirty/grimy/football bars.
Guess where the Meadowlands are? In the middle of absolutely nothing. Drive I-95 one of these days and tell us how cool the environment will be around the stadium. It’ll suck ice balls. Trust us.
Don’t bitch when there’s eight inches of snow and wind chills below zero. The NFL will be smiling.
