My opinion; a week before Super Bowl Sunday I stood on a corner in my hometown waiting for the traffic lights to change. It was cold and windy with snow flurries. A guy standing next to me had a Giants hat on, along with his down jacket, scarf, boots and red runny nose.

Say “I said, if I had two tickets to the Super Bowl would you go?”

“Met Life Stadium in this weather? No way!”

I’ve been to a couple championship games and the energy some how helps with keeping you warm as long as you have some brandy on your person. But the weather seem to be getting worse all week and the idea of anyone enjoying the biggest football game of the year seemed remote. The day of the game I went out to get my chicken wings, chips and guacamole fixings and beer. I was dressed like an Olympic downhill hopeful minus the goggles. A warm breeze seemed to dust my freshly shaven cheek as I was expecting something more like a cold hard slap instead.

I went about my business the rest of the day and only tuned in to the game a couple minutes before kickoff. Troy Aikman and Joe Buck were doing their pregame hype when a guy walks past the camera on the field. He’s dressed in Bermuda shorts and a T-shirt.

“It’s colder up in Seattle and Denver,” Buck would say. “Here at Met Life Stadium it’s a balmy 49 degrees!”

I watched that whole game and never once felt as if the weather made a difference. Hard to believe the “Big Guy” up in the sky didn’t want the weather to affect the game as well.

He got what he wanted. And so did the Seattle Seahawk fans.

The next morning it began snowing again. Can you believe?

Book it Dano!
