U.S braces itself for coldest month of the
century with yet another Arctic blast as
fears grow for Super Bowl Sunday

Daily Mail [UK], by Louise Boyle & Ashley Collman

America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy. Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days. The timing could not be worse for one of the biggest global sporting events, which will be exposed to

Moving the SB to a northern state was one of the dumbest things I´ve seen in years.When I´m out in 20 degree weather,I want to be back inside in less than a minute. Even if you wear 50 layers of clothes,cold can figure out a way in.I don´t want to be a mummy watching a football game.I went to a playoff game in the cold one time and shivered my way through 3 hours.This was when you could bring your own bottle of liquor in.

It´s not just this,Goodell is horrible on everything else and is running scared from trial layers.

I´m still trying to figure out if the headline means the coldest month in this century, which means the coldest month in 14 years, or the coldest month in 100 years, which would be much more impressive. I think it´s the former, but dressed up to look like the latter at first glance.

The article gets one point partially wrong: there have been many Super Bowls in open-air stadiums e.g. the Rose Bowl but none yet in a cold climate.

The NFL´s choice was a curious one. Their offices are in Manhattan but even they like a getaway to a warm destination. Having it nearby makes the Super Bowl into a busman´s holiday.

Miami, Phoenix, Pasadena, New Orleans....and now East Rutherford NJ. Talk about an ugly duckling.

SB in NJ - perhaps Christie is getting some kick backs.

Maybe I am missing something here, but, the Weather Channel website forecasts a high temperature of 39 in East Rutherford on SB Sunday. So I´m not getting this weather hype.

Or is the east coast´s progressive victim schtick starting to spread into professional sports as well. In this case, why do those who decide to enjoy a professional sporting event at their own choosing, have to be labeled as the victims. Or have we become a nation of envious whiners.

Who in the world would shell out the exorbitant cost of a Super Bowl ticket to go sit outside in freezing weather after traveling and trudging through snow to get there? If the stadium was an indoors one, it might be fun once you got there. Why wouldn´t the deciders (Commissioner Goodell)keep weather in mind for where the game is played?

FTA: Eric Grubman, NFL vice president of business operations, told the Denver Post: ´We are advising teams to prepare in case a contingency plan goes into effect´.... Broncos coach John Fox and Seattle coach Pete Carroll will be the first to know if the event is rescheduled.

If there is a contingency, why would they still go to an open air stadium. Seattle and Denver might be somewhat better, but it will still be cold in either of those places. There are enough domed and/or retractable stadiums to choose from - Ford Field in Detroit or Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to name two.

Since ticket sales aren´t going so well - I think I read it on Drudge yesterday - I would bet a contingency will be declared. Hey, the NFL could do Detroit a big favor and hold it at Ford Field. I think Mayor Bing would appreciate the businesss.

I´m with #1. What is wrong with the NFL owners in the Northeast. Are they too cheap to build domed stadiums or just too dumb. I saw an article yesterday that stated Super bowl ticket prices were plunging.

Perhaps the weather will freeze Richard Sherman´s lips. That would be a plus.

If you are unimaginative enough to spend $2000 to watch a bunch of steroid-laced goons run into each other like cattle for a couple of hours, you deserve to freeze to death too.

When something is done these days to adversely affect thousands of people and it doesn´t seem to make sense, you can be assured that a LOT of money exchanged hands somewhere.

To top it off, the Super Bowl is usually the worst and most boring game of the season.

As attractive as the title is, this article does little to support the ´coldest month´ story with data or comparisons.

As to putting the SB in a northern stadium in early February--maybe someone believed all the hype about Global Warming and thought it was time. Hahah. Jokes on you.

But really, I live in Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan stadium just had its second outdoor, winter hockey game. 109,000 people showed up and weren´t noisily miserable. It was cold and quite snowy.

Oh, and no between period wardrobe malfunctions.

The global warming/climate change/extreme weather fearmongers are at it again. If you get cold, find one of these fearmongers, and set them on fire. That will shut them up and keep you warm at the same time.

Personally, I would like to see a Super Bowl in Green Bay.

#23 I´m sorry we never met when I lived in A2. We probably would have had lots to talk about. The hockey game at the U of M stadium I thought was a great idea and a good use for the stadium in non-football months. My former neighbor was on the Michigan ice hockey team several decades ago. He may have helped organize the event. Glad it was a success.

Does it get cold in the northeast in the winter time? And snowy weather with the cold? Who´s ever heard of that? Some people say it gets hot in Texas in July too. Weird, and terrifying. I´ll be bracing myself for the blast in abject fear here just north of Dallas for the game. Thanks for the heads up Daily Mail.

And of course global warming is the cause of all this cold air coming down from the artic. I read somewhere when the 1st blast came down a week or so ago that the "artic vortex" usually just circles around the north pole but warm are (didn´t say where it came from) moved up around the north pole causing the "artic vortex" to move southward. And if I´m correct, that violates a simple law of physics since cold air is denser thus heavier that warm air. I guess that there is something else going on that we fly-over´s don´t know about and/or can´t comprehend.

Dear Roger Goodell:

The predicted weather for San Diego on February 2, 2014 is 61 F, mostly sunny skies, with just 10% chance of rain, winds from the west/southwest at 11 miles per hour, and a low temp of 50 F.

Just thought you´d want to know.


A better location for SB 48.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

I’m off to a Seder.” I reply: “You’re Jewish?” He answers? “What the f?-?-?k did you think I was?” Ask: “You rich?” It’s: “Jesus, no. In TV’s old days we got paid like schleppers.” His lifestyle? “I live alone in Valley Village, a continuation of Studio City. Been there seven years. I live quietly, just pick my nose, and emit all those noises we make as we get older.” Now shooting scenes at

The righteous indignation burns a little brighter on this side of the Atlantic than it does in Europe and beyond — the United States, per Fitzgerald, “having about it still that quality of the idea.” Forged in revolution, informed by soaring sentiment, and defined by acts of variously prudent dissidence, Americans of all sorts fancy themselves to be fighting the good fight. (Snip) If Cliven Bundy’s behavior is legitimized by the gravity of his circumstances, how many others may follow suit, singing his name as they go?

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
