    New York or Indianapolis! Let’s not leave out Chicago! There is something about spending a couple of days of vacation in a bar and a hotel room that just seems so right. You know, Vegas in a snow storm! You whop up in bed and watch the blizzard for a while and then go down and plunge your guts on the crap table. We hit the buffet, play some keno and sip some rum while we chat with hookers and watch the snow turn to ice! Man; what a Super Bowl! All of the sports betting is right at your fingertips. Speaking of fingertips, let’s hit the steam room, get a massage and head out to the stadium!

    You guys go ahead! I’ll just stay here in Miami with the 78 degree weather. I’ll watch you guys on TV in all of that fun winter weather!

    If we are going to foul weather games, why don’t we change the playoff system and play Super Bowl in the home stadium of the team with the best record? Let’s reward the season ticket holders by allowing them to buy their own seats for the big game. All of the remaining seats could be offered first to season ticket holders from the visiting team. Any seats not purchased could them be sold to the general public! Screw the hotel room availability, fans will find a way to survive!

    Cramped cruise ship cabins with a view of smokestacks and tarpaper shacks on a polluted river. Those who dare to venture to the mainland will be greeted by tattooed, multiple pierced skateboard maniacs dressed in black and gold screaming, “We got six rings!” Delightful.

    As a Steelers fan and lover of the city itself, I just don’t see this working out well. There simply aren’t enough hotels and the traffic surrounding the stadium would be hell on earth. I’m all for outdoor Super Bowls, but I could give a damn where its played as long as Pittsburgh is playing in it haha.

    What about a SB in Baltimore? I know most games I watch there are thousands and thousands of empty seats, so they’d definitely have the capacity. But the NFL would have to get permission from Tomlin, as he owns the ravens.

    Tomlin doesn’t own the Ravens anymore. He’s so absent minded he lost them somewhere along with his placement. Having home field advantage for the Ravens in the SB it a great idea though crown. Best case that is 2017 or 2018 so Flacco should be competing for his third ring and third MVP.

    Yes, so much better to have it in Baltimore. Where you’ll luxuriate in the beautiful blocks around M&T Bank Stadium, which look like Baghdad after the fourth week of bombing. Ask for directions from one of the toothless trailer-park locals, and you’ll be led to a project block here in America’s crack capital; if you’re lucky, Bunk and McNulty will steer you clear of the stray bullets. Dare to venture downtown, and be greeted by one of the many bitter jobless denizens, who’ll just as soon whack you on the head with a crab mallet than smile. It’s hard to say whether the anger or the smell of rotten fish is stronger. Yes, the Super Bowl played “Down in the Hole” — wouldn’t that be just lovely?

    Alternate from Cold to Hot stadiums. Nothing wrong with playing football in all kinds of weather.
