Super Bowl 2014 is one of the biggest unofficial holidays here in America, but before you start planning that huge party you may want to make sure the NFL is actually playing the game on Feb. 2.
How would you feel if the Super Bowl was played on Monday or Tuesday? Well the odds of that happening may be better than you think.
Not to many NFL fans want to even think about that!
According to a FOX Sports report on Dec. 19, that ugly rumor may become a reality depending on Mother Nature and her unpredictable ways.
“There are contingency plans for multiple different days,” Supovitz told the New York Daily News. “There is the potential of a move-up scenario, there is the potential of a move-back scenario, depending on what we are seeing coming. It could potentially be on a Saturday or it could be on the Monday or Tuesday. There is also a scenario where we could play the following weekend, a scenario that is incredibly unlikely. You’re dealing with progressively infinitesimal possibilities.”
The biggest problem with changing the date is this game is more than a game, it's an event - a global event at that.
Millions of people not only watch this single NFL game on TV, but hundreds of thousands of fans will flock to New Jersey to not only see the game, but just to be part of the week long events.
Vegas casinos live for this one day when an estimated $300-500 million will be bet on the game in one shape or form.
The date shouldn't be changed, even if it snows worse than it did in Philly for the Lions vs Eagles game. Man up boys, before the Astrodome was created in 1965, all of the NFL games and Championships were played outdoors.
The only reason the game should be postponed is if the weather is so bad that the fans can't get to the Meadowlands. Safety of the people should be the number one priority, but as for the players they have played in bad elements before so that shouldn't be a problem.
The NFL chose New Jersey as this year's site, so come rain, sleet, snow or hail the game should be played Feb. 2.
