Yep, you read that right. The super bowl being played tonight might set a record for the lowest temperature ever at kickoff.

"MINNEAPOLIS — Sunday’s Super Bowl is expected to be the coldest on record with temperatures in the low single digits around the 5:30 p.m. CT kickoff. Factor in the winds of around 10 mph, and it will feel like it’s well below zero."

I found several news articles on the subject including the above clip from USA today that was linked from drudge report.

Now I know this sounds like a perfectly fitting story as weather does effect on field performance of the teams.
Cold makes it harder to throw and catch.

But, and this is a big but.....

The game is being played inside a fricken domed stadium!
Lemme say that again, inside a domed stadium!
My god just stop already..

I played Ice Hockey, they can suck my pucks if they moan about a slight chill.....


Hell I support sending hungry Polar bears and highly trained swat penguins onto the field at key times to keep me entertained...

why does the outside temp matter if they are playing in a heated domed stadium?

the media are such drama queens.

I read your post and thought the same thing as you. It is not the coldest SB ever played. These people, the media, are turning into some serious drama queens.

No pads, no helmets, no breaks.

Just solid footy for 80 minutes.
