It would be a party. Imagine how many people would love to make a ski vacation out of the trip.

Wont ever happen. Weather is too unpredictable out here.

Yeah by 2018 there will be so much carbon in the air that Denver will be like the sahara desert... :yayaya:

It can be 70, sunny and awesome out on the morning of the superbowl. By gametime, it could be 12 with two feet of snow on the ground. That has not changed.

I know but, imo the weather has had alot less snow in denver and Boulder area recently.

Obviously they think they have a chance.

But hey, glad that it got totally debunked on a message board with one sentence.

Then let me amend it.

If it goes well in NYC, then other outdoor venue cold weather sites will probably get honest consideration. But it is doubtful Denver will be selected for a superbowl, no matter what the organization thinks.

RhymesayersDU 11-28-2012 10:24 PM

Well, that settles that.

UltimateHoboW/Shotgun 11-28-2012 10:26 PM

Way better than whatever is in Detroit.

Mogulseeker 11-28-2012 10:30 PM

There has to be a cheap way they can install a heat system and put a tent-like structure over the stadium

Meck77 11-28-2012 10:32 PM

I'll be wearing my shorts. Denver is usually shorts weather most of the winter.

Haven't you heard? Detroit is broke, and they're talking about shutting down the town.

No.

It would be cool to have what would essentially be another home game for us that year. I wonder if we would do the all blue uniforms.

Will Brock Osweiler be the quarterback?

Listen I realize people in San Diego drive around with ski jackets on when it hits 60 degrees but average daily highs in Denver are 50 degrees most of the winter.

A sweat shirt and shorts is ideal. If wind kicks up a bit you put your hoodie on. Sun comes out you toss your sweatshirt in car and you ready to golf in Dec!

Cold is western slope living. East slope is down right tropical in comparison.

Seems to me when I lived or visited there, the time near the National Western Stock show was the bitterest time of the winter in DEN..

Which is about the same time as the Superbowl..

Ha, yeah I've definitely turned into a bit of a ninny out here in SD, but I was born in Alaska and grew up in Denver so I know cold weather. I just don't remember wearing shorts much in December/January. Guess my memory is going.

That One Guy 11-29-2012 02:56 AM

New York is only getting a Superbowl as the NFL's way to grease publicly funded stadiums. That's the only way the NFL is going to risk bad weather. Heck, they're currently telling the Dolphins that a roof is one of the things they need if they want to become competitive for superbowls again. I don't see it happening in Denver.

Super Bowls are not really home games, even if it's at home.

Old Dude 11-29-2012 07:03 AM

Think of the drama if we did get a blizzard! :undecided

Some of the NFL's greatest games were played under horrid conditions.
