Heat lamps are baking reporters in auxiliary press box

Every Super Bowl entails a media contingent so large that hundreds of the folks covering the game have to sit outside, in what otherwise would be seats sold to the public.

This year, with the Super Bowl to be played for the first time outdoors in a cold-weather climate, the NFL added multiple heat lamps above the seats in the auxiliary press box.  It’s creating a distinct orange glow at the top of the lower level of the Seahawks end zone.

Deadspin has a collection of photos.

And since it’s still 52 degrees, the reporters are being cooked.  Per multiple reports, it’s so hot that phones and tablets are shutting down.

Hopefully, they won’t be serving cereal in the auxiliary box.  Otherwise, someone may pour tomato juice on their Frosted Flakes.

    The NFL and its Super Bowl side bars. Already heard about the fans staying in line one and half hours in train station passing out.

    Why not watch it on TV instead then? You can write those delayed updates without being in the press box.

    Sports reporters and writers are basically the lowest form of humanity. The high temperatures are a preview of what is in store for them in the afterlife.

    For some reason this makes me really happy. Reporters whining about the NFL having the Super Bowl in New Jersey has made them all look like fools.

    There is always a switch to turn the lights off.

    Being that quality journalism has been dead for some time, I have not for the life of me been able to understand why journalist get into these events. It certainly doesn’t improve their articles. Not only do they get in, they get the best seats. I paid $1,100 for “front row” at the Final Four just to be behind five rows of english majors and the likes of Woody Paige. Seat troops and their families there with heat or no heat; you won’t hear complaining or read garbage articles/blogs.
