So with Sunday night’s game between the Vikings and Eagles delayed two days due to a blizzard, the NFL surely has to be thinking that maybe a mistake was made in awarding Super Bowl XLVIII to the New Meadowlands Stadium, right?
If they are, they’re not admitting it.
Asked whether the league is having second thoughts about the open-air February Super Bowl in a venue that will be buried under twenty inches of snow by Monday night, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, “No. We are the ultimate reality show.”
He’s right. But this kind of stuff will make folks even more inclined to take in the “ultimate reality show” from the comfort of their own homes, and not to pay big money for the privilege of serving as extras in a real-life Jerry Bruckheimer movie.
