HUGE TEST FOR NFL
Super Bowl week is here.
And while many folks around have taken the “No Patriots, no care” approach to Sunday’s meeting between the Broncos and Seahawks, I am preparing for the NFL to fall flat on its face with this cold weather “experiment” in the Meadowlands.
You folks have to understand, I’m from the camp that would have the Super Bowl in a city like Las Vegas or Los Angeles, New Orleans or Miami every year. The game is a celebration of football.
Temps in the teens and snow flurries aren’t proper for celebrations. There’s a reason nobody gets married up here on the first weekend in February.
But that brings us to Sunday. Do we really get a quality product in an ice bowl, or if the snow is piling up?
Let’s be honest. The “Snow Bowl” game of the 2001 playoffs simply wasn’t fair to the Raiders. But they had a chance to play in a more suiting climate. They didn’t do it in the regular season.
The Super Bowl doesn’t offer that to a Denver or Seattle or anyone else. This game is meant to be played in warm weather or better yet, a dome.
When this thing all falls apart, the usually wise NFL will see what a mistake they’ve made.
WAY TO GO, BRIAN
Congrats, I think, to Londonderry’s Brian Wilson, for making the rantsports.com “30 Scariest Athletes” list. At number 15, Wilson was sandwiched right between Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh and the NBA’s Chris “Birdman” Anderson.
Brian, for those of us who know the real you, the Brian behind the beard, we seriously ask that you call for a recount.
STEP UP, CENA!
