Mara Bowl - Weather Updates

Postby DarthMonk » Sun Feb 10, 2013 7:51 pm

What is your ideal scenario for next year's Super Bowl? In case you didn't know, Feb. 2, 2014, would be the date for the outdoor Super Bowl in East Rutherford, N.J.

I'd love to be in it but, if we're not, this might be nice:

Us beating the Giants at MetLife for the NFC then beating, say the Patriots (or Broncos) for the Big Game. Winning the final 2 at Mara's stadium? :twisted:

Hmmmmm, strange how the first outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl goes to the Giants.....

Must be because they have a nice new stadium.

Hey, didn't we get a nice new stadium a little while back....???

Oh, but why would they want to play the big game in the nation's capital...???

I suppose there must be a perfectly good Mara, I mean reason, why it went to NY..

I don't care about hosting a SB. If we aren't playing in it, I don't want it near me.

Ideally... it would be a prefect day for football, with the local team getting blown out by the Skins, This would be proceeded by the other local team taken a nose dive early in the season and finished 4th in the NFCE

Nah, I don't want that insufferable fatass braggart (Rex Ryan) anywhere NEAR the Big Game.

It would be great if some confluence of events forced Mara to present the Danny with the Lombardi Trophy.

Could anyone photoshop that one up for me?

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Farmers' Almanac is using words like "piercing cold," "bitterly cold" and "biting cold" to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the first outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy "Storm Bowl."

The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands Monday predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey.

Mara is a cheat. But I think this was decided shortly after 9/11 and the Giants needed to build the new stadium.

Won't be long now. I want to see so much snow that only 10,000 fans show up. Then when they uncover the field I want 6 inches of snow each half.

Super Bowl Saturday? If the idea of Super Bowl XLVIII being played a day earlier than Sunday, Feb. 2, or even the next evening, seems preposterous, it could happen if a massive snow storm is forecasted for northern New Jersey that weekend.

NFL officials on Wednesday conceded that contingency plans call for the championship game to be played at any point between Friday, Jan. 31 and Monday, Feb. 3 at MetLife Stadium.

Super Bowl forecast: Snow plus temps in 20s

The first forecast for Super Bowl Sunday has been released, and it's currently calling for a high of 35 degrees and a 30 percent chance of snow.

According to Weather.com, snow showers are possible and temperatures will range from 25 to 35 degrees. The Broncos and Seahawks will kick off at 6:30 PM ET, so they'd likely be playing in temperatures in the 20s. Wind isn't expected to be a factor; it's projected to be blowing around 8 MPH. Of course, we're ten days away from the big game, which leaves plenty of time for change. The NFL has previously said that if a winter storm is expected, the game could be moved to Saturday, Monday, or Tuesday. Worst-case scenario would be for Super Bowl to be pushed back to February 9. We're not at that point.
