We’ll see if cold weather New Jersey Su-brrrr Bowl was such a great idea

The first Super Bowl took place 47 years ago at the Los Angeles Coliseum in 70-degree weather. Marching bands from two prestigious universities, Michigan and Arizona, provided the halftime entertainment.

Unless global warming flexes its biceps in the next 13 days, Super Bowl XLVIII plays out in chilly if not frigid conditions on New Jersey soil. Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers share the halftime stage.

Sorry, but this doesn’t strike me as progress.
