This year, the culmination of the 2013 NFL season will feature a Super Bowl of historic proportion. For the first time, the league has opted to place the game in an outdoor, cold weather location instead of sunny California, Florida or an indoor stadium. Many are watching this game with baited breath, wondering how the league will pull it off and how the weather will impact the events surrounding and including the Super Bowl.
As soon as the NFL awarded this year’s Big Game to MetLife Stadium, owners around the league started a battle cry of “why not us?” with the first calls coming from Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. It’s been speculated that improvements wanted at Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, is a move to try to host the Super Bowl. Now, two other cities in northern climates are starting to look towards hosting the annual extravaganza, Philadelphia and Chicago.
