Concerns over the weather on Super Bowl Sunday have dominated headlines for years. But, with Super Bowl week now off and rolling, festivities kicking into high gear and all things other than traffic moving smoothly, the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee has already begun to look ahead.
And although a single play has not yet been run, Giants co-owner and Host Committee Co-Chairman, Jonathan Tisch, said on Monday that the area should seek to host at least one Super Bowl per decade so long as all the numbers check out.
“Hopefully when we do all the tallying for weeks to come,” Giants co-owner and Host Committee Co-Chairman Jonathan Tisch said, “the other 30 owners will say to themselves when there’s a chance to do it again: ‘Super Bowl XLVIII in New York and New Jersey was a huge success. Let’s try to do this once every 10 years.’”
As it relates to the weather itself, New York/New Jersey locals chuckle at the concern over weather. In fact, Tisch notes, it adds a whole new element to the big game — an element that is often seen during the regular season and playoffs, but one rarely experienced during the Super Bowl itself.
"I think it's important to have an outside Super Bowl," Tisch added. "I don't want to use the word 'no-brainer,' but we've had 47 of these indoors and in the South. It's about time we played a Super Bowl in conditions, the way the game is routinely played."
Whether or not New York/New Jersey ever gets to host another Super Bowl remains to be seen. That decision likely won't, nor can be made for quite some time. And what actually happens (or doesn't happen) this coming Sunday will play a major deciding role the next time a Super Bowl location is discussed.
