I have never been a fan of the NFL's decision to award Super Bowl XLVIII (that's 48 to us commoners) scheduled to be played on February 2, 2014 in MetLife Stadium, the home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets in the New Jersey metropolitan area of New York City.
I have no idea why the NFL would award a Super Bowl to a northern open air stadium. Why would the NFL willingly accept even the slightest risk that their marquee event would be disrupted or worse by weather?
I think the odds that the weather will be okay are in the NFL's favor. But what if a winter storm or blizzard like Nemo happens to strike the NYC metro area next February 2?
After this weekend that doesn't seem like such an idle threat.
