Super Bowl: Get ready for an arctic blast
At 3 p.m. Monday, the temperature in Arlington, Texas, was 55 degrees. Not bad for the last day of January and perfectly acceptable for a region about to be overrun with Super Bowl festivities.
The projected temperatures at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Arlington: 15 degrees.
Welcome to Texas, NFL. The league keeps taking its week-long football celebration to dicey weather locales, and it will pay the price this week, much like when that huge snowstorm paralyzed Atlanta during Super Bowl 34 (Rams-Titans).
The game will be fine — projected high for Sunday is 60 degrees — and you’ve got JerryWorld’s roof closed anyway. But the week is about parties and celebrations and, oh yeah, football practice for the Packers and the Steelers. Green Bay will work out at the Cowboys’ facility in Irving, while Pittsburgh will be at TCU in Fort Worth.
But the teams won’t be nearly as affected as everyone else. Indoor practice sites will take care of the Packers and the Steelers. Getting around town on icy roads, and staging massive parties without the option of going outdoors, that’s a little problematic.
