Who wants to see some snow in the Super Bowl?
"People talk about the weather, but, you know, this is football, not beach volleyball," New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the NFL Network.
This is new territory for the league, which continues to expand the stamp of "innovation" that commissioner Roger Goodell seems to want to leave. Super Bowls have been hosted in cold-weather cities before, but each time the stadium has had a dome. That won't be the case in the Meadowlands. This was supposedly a one-time exception to the rule that only teams with a dome or an average temperature of 50 degrees+ could bid on the Super Bowl, but if the buzz is high in 2014, I wouldn't be surprised to see more cold-weather non-dome stadiums receive a Super Bowl.
Vote in the poll below on whether or not you support the Super Bowl being in New York, and also whether you would like to see the February weather play a factor.
