The weather going to be a major topic midweek for this Super Bowl, but it will all quickly die down and forgotten about when the actual even kicks off (literally) on Sunday with great weather and with the game just being in a dome. The area will get beat up in the press about how wimpy we are when it comes to cold weather, but we’re use to that.
When the Super Bowl is played in New York in two years I’m hoping for blizzard conditions, because the NFL allowing for a Super Bowl to be held in an open air stadium up north is just lunacy.
I like how many of the Packer and Steeler players came to Texas wearing cowboy hats and belt buckles.
As much as I hated it, it was nice seeing all the crowds welcoming the teams to the area.
Peter King is having a Tweetup this week and I think I may just attend. I may just ask him about his reason for wanting Tagbliabue in the Hall of Fame. I’m against the idea. Sure he didn’t have a work stoppage and the league grew during his tenure, but I don’t know what he’s done other than just doing his job as commissioner. I fear if he gets in, than all commissioners will get in just for being a commissioner.
I’m not sure why Super Bowl XLV has two logos, a national and a regional. The national logo does not have the stadium but the regional one does.
Former Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle is running for mayor of Dallas. I recall talking to a friend who was part of DPD that predicted such a thing because Kunkle was quick to throw his men under the bus in the media rather than defend them in public – already working like a politician.
