The Superbowl Should Be Played in the Snow

I rather like this change:

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the success of the 2014 Super Bowl slated for Meadowlands Stadium will determine whether more championships are played at undomed cold-weather sites.

Goodell spoke at commencement ceremonies Saturday for the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he accepted an honorary doctorate for his father, the late Sen. Charles E. Goodell of New York.

The commissioner was introduced by Robert Kraft and stood with the New England owner after the ceremony. The Patriots play outside at Gillette Stadium.

On Tuesday, the league awarded the 2014 championship to the new $1.6 billion home of the Jets and Giants.

Kraft, who supported the decision, said "the elements should be part of the game."

Cold weather football is the stuff of legend. Anyone who lives in a cold weather environment already knows that you have to prepare and dress appropriately for the game when it is held late in the season. The Superbowl should be no exception. And, as to whether or not the drunks will get frostbite, I say, let the drunks freeze solid and then melt when they flush out the stadium in March or April.
