Super Bowl will warm up Meadowlands
May 25, 2010 - Neil Rudel
The NFL has awarded the 2014 Super Bowl -- Super Bowl IIL -- to the new Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey.
It'sthe first time the game will be played in a cold-weather site without a dome.
And I say bravo.
The weather is part of football, and while the Super Bowl also is an event that draws top-of-the-line travelers looking to vacation and go to the game, there's plenty to do in the New York City area to keep anyone entertained.
No city throws a party like New York -- well, OK, New Orleans does -- and why shouldn't the Big Apple get its chance to host? If the upper crust wants to go to the game, you can be sure they're not going to freeze in their mink coats.
Tampa, Miami, New Orleans and other warm-weather sites shouldn't have a lock on hosting the biggest ticket in sports.
And if the weather doesn't cooperate, so what. In fact, let it snow!
