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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Think of the drama if we did get a blizzard!

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