Yesterday, The Better Half and I relaxed and watched some football games on TV. Out of eight early games, five of them were being played in the snow. The top game in the (clickable) image was being played in Pittsburgh and the bottom one was in Philadelphia.
Eventually, during the game in Pittsburgh, the snowfall abated but in Philly, it just kept snowing throughout the game. By the final whistle, over eight inches had fallen since about an hour before kickoff. It was amusing to watch from here in the desert, where we thought we were cold at 49°F.
It’s interesting to note that the Superbowl will be played in Giant Stadium, an outdoor venue, in February. Perhaps we will be able to see more snow and ice in the biggest game of the NFL year.
