When the NFL announced that they would be having a Superbowl in Manhattan, there were some people who wondered if it was a good idea. After all, normally the game is played in a warm and mild climate, of which New York is not known for. The week of Feb 3rd has an average temperature of 31.9 over the last 3 years. The detractors argue that having a game of this magnitude in a cold weather environment is just crazy. Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens was quoted as calling it “retarded. Still why should we refrain from using nearly 60% of the country for the world’s largest stage? The Superbowl brings not only 4 million dollar commercials, but nearly 800 million in revenue to the hosting city. It seems the risk may be worth the reward. New York will also be hosting the NBA All Star game, and has been the host of 40 World Series between the Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, and Giants. Regardless of your personal opinion the game will happen, and its’ inevitable conclusion may or may not also conclude the era of SuperbowlSnowday.
