When you think of glitz, when you think of glamor, when you think of the type of place you want to hold the biggest event in all of sports, you probably think of New Jersey.
Personally, I wouldn't hold my enemy's wedding in New Jersey, but apparently by 2014, someone figures that the smell in East Rutherford will have dissipated and the NFL will be able to convince people to want to go there to watch the Super Bowl.
Yesterday's announcement was historic: It will be "the first open-air stadium in a cold-weather region to host a Super Bowl." If you think that's a good idea, check out these sobering stats presented by ESPN: Average high = 37°, Record high = 58°.
Yes, there's something charming about a bunch of college kids getting drunk out of their minds to help brave the freezing temperatures of a Michigan game. There's even something fun about seeing a bunch of silly Wisconsinites pretending they're enjoying freezing their asses off to watch the Packers. But paying thousands of dollars to sit in the freezing cold for the Super Bowl?
Spend the money to reserve yourself a luxury box. If you can't get that, just reserve a spot on a cruise.
The XFL would have never done this to us!
