If this ain't Vishnu telling Jerry Jones to sit on his thumb and spin, I don't know what is. Ah, the best laid plans of Jerrah--a mild weather super bowl in his town/his new palatial stadium, with his team playing in it, while getting a hummer from fergie--just ain't materializing.

That picture isn't from Cowboys stadium. There's no industrial buildings that close to it. MSNBC fail.

Could be ****ty Detroit! This is why the Superbowl needs to be in San Diego, LA or Florida every year. Not sure on New Orleans, though.

Say what? Ice is still as famous as ever. Doesn't everybody watch "The Vanilla Ice Project" on DIY Network.

All of the national media pundits have their panties in a wad over this super bowl because Dallas is getting hit by the worst winter storm in North Texas history, and as of the last I have heard, this is the worst winter storm in American history. It has shellacked the entire midwest and northeast.

I have been out and about with the fans of both teams and nobody's complaining. They all know how to handle snow.

These pathetic journalists who are missing out on their chances to feel important can shove it. Nobody likes 'em anyway.

Bwahaaaahaaa...back when you had to buy the cassette tape just so you knew the true lyrical bs he spewed.

In other news...ice does fall once it has been allowed to hang beyond its elastic potential.

they're prepared for it but lets face facts Texans are not. hardly any sand or salt for the roads and what they did have was used up on Tuesday. Not sure how it is in Arlington but Dallas is still pretty awful today. Plenty of businesses have closed up shop near me - why bother with low demand? Plus the flight situation still hasn't been entirely worked out - and we might get a little more snow on Sunday!

For those outside Texas the big thing here is that if there is a bridge that can be built - it will. Highway interchanges have immense flyovers like nothing you will find in Denver or any other cold-weather city. The result is that Dallas area highway traffic is great given the size of the metroplex but even a little snow or ice freezes those bridges up quick.

Not to mention that Jerrry is going to get sued big time. Think on it...this is the same organization that just had a nasty weather related incident a year or so ago when they had 100 mph winds take down their indoor practice faciliy. A team employee or somebody...I forget who...wound up in a wheel chair over it and more people got hurt. Now along comes anothe weather related incident, this one on the heels of snow taking down the roof in Minnesota. Some PI lawyer is already salivating over the slap dunk...they knew or should have known that falling ice off the roof could be an issue. While I'm on a rant...how come a billion dollars doesn't buy a defroster built into the roof? I had a '73 Pinto once that came with one.

That's true, but this isn't the standard fare for weather in the metroplex. Public schools from pre-k all the way up to the University have been closed since Tuesday, which hasnt happened at any point that I have lived in North Texas. This is a rare weather event and its not unique to DFW. We're supposed to get more snow on Sunday and then next week on Wednesday as well. It never stays this cold here for this long. It was almost 80 degrees last week.

I wont comment on the preparedness issue, because I just dont know that much about it. Maybe Jerry should have foot the bill for more salt spreaders, salt, and plows.

My girlfriend and I drove back from the Ticket party last night and it wasn't too bad. Of course, you cant drive like an idiot or drive drunk and expect it to be a walk in the park. Maybe thats why these journalists are acting like spurned children over what may amount to a national weather disaster.

I don't think DFW traffic is great at all, I think it sucks eggs, and I've driven LA's freeways. It's insanely stupid the way this place is put together. Drunken frat boys could have done better. We have HOV lanes where we don't need them and none where we do, freeways that shrink in size the closer they get to the real congestion, hundreds of constructions sites with barrels or barricades closing off lanes and nobody has worked 90% of these sites in months. Arlington is a joke...they're shutting down streets and closing lanes all around the stadium so it's even harder to get around here now. The only people who will like this **** are the business property owners around the stadium. I asked at Radio Shack a block from the stadium today what it was going to cost to park in their lot...a cool $500. Last night it took me 3 1/2 hours to get from Plano on the north side to Arlilngton and this was way before it even started snowing. I sat on LBJ I-635 for an hour and 45 minutes before I could bail and take the back roads into downtown. There are off ramps and bridges here that were not even sanded. Off I-35 Stemmons Fwy at the Oak Lawn exit the ramp with a bridge wasn't sanded but Oak Lawn was...stupidity. A single fender bender that happens in bad weather conditions could snarl this traffic for hours come Sunday. Considering the fact that 300,000 new people are here and most are going to be drinking, there will be more than a few accidents. Oh yeah...the cops like to stand around in the middle of the interstate for 30 minutes after a wreck's been cleaned up and shoot the bull while drivers wait in a miles long parking lot...in short they have no ****ing clue what they're doing here and this is just an obvious example.

My girlfriend and I drove back from Dallas last night after it started snowing. I couldnt count the fender benders. I would literally see someone go flying by me being overconfident about driving on snow, and then see them spin out and crash into the shoulder ditches or the median dividers.

I saw a couple of rented driver cars (the tinted window black lincolns, the caddys, etc) wreck because they were pressing too hard.

There's as much stupidity in the cars as there is in city planning.

To be fair to the city planners, I dont see how they could have foreseen a national weather crisis.

Why not? He was given half a billion by the taxpayers, it wouldn't kill him to do exactly that.

Do you think someone might forsee a huge piece of ice sliding 200 feet off the roof? I do...and I bet some court will also.

Sure, there's no doubt that Jerry's death star was not prepared to deal with snow on gameday. Huge oversight.

No joke. It should be played in football towns. Pittsburgh should get it. Green Bay certainly should get it. Even KC should get it. Denver should get it.

Having it in Miami or San Diego where nobody gives a crap about the sport anyway is a little hypocritical on the NFL's part.

If somebody builds a new stadium, the NFL should put them right on the schedule.

Sadly, San Diego could be the very best Superbowl town of them all but the city council is too shortsighted to realize they actually run a tourist based town.

Airport 5 minutes from downtown, lots of good bars, good weather. Though when it rains in February in San Diego it tends to rain a lot.

Those are trailers supporting the tens of thousands of various media members covering the superbowl.

I'd say the fail is definitely on you.
