Check the antifreeze, grab the mittens, make sure the airport's not buried in snow.
We're going to the Super Bowl.
In New Jersey!
NFL owners voted Tuesday to put the 48th Super Bowl in the new $1.6 billion Meadowlands Stadium that this season will become home to the New York Jets and New York Giants. It's the first time the league has gone to a cold-weather site that doesn't have a dome, and those places couldn't even bid on the big game until now.
The slogan for New York's bid is "Make Some History." The first piece likely will be made is a record-low temperature at kickoff. The current record is 39 degrees in 1972 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, and that would be considered a warm February day in East Rutherford, N.J.
There has never been snow in a Super Bowl game, and that could happen, too.
The average temperature range for the Meadowlands area during February is 24 to 40 degrees, with several inches of rain, according to the bid documents. Remember, the game kicks off after sunset in the Eastern time zone, so temperatures would be dropping throughout the night.
