I'm reading the complaints about the Super Bowl being held in New
Jersey in 2014.
Yeah it might snow, it might be cold.
But you know what? If the super bowl was in Texas/Florida/Georgia/
California it could also snow. Last year 49 states had snow, Hawaii
was the only state to not have snow.
I remember a few years ago going to the Super Bowl in Atlanta
and it was a sheet of ice.
Does Hawaii even have a football stadium?
It did snow in Hawaii. According to an Assistant Professor at the
University of Hawaii:
"The answer is "yes". It snows here every year, but only at the very summits
of our 3 tallest volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and Haleakala). The snow
level almost never gets below 9000 feet in Hawaii during the winter, but
since these mountains are taller than 13,000 feet, 13,000 feet, and 10,000
feet, respectively, they get dusted with snow a few times a year. It rarely
stays on the ground for more than a few days though.
Although the rest of the island chain enjoys warm tropical weather the
entire year-round, there have been "freak" cold storms a few times this
century that have brought local snow storms down to as low as 3000 to 4000
feet. This snow has melted very quickly, however."
A YouTube video of a February 9, 2009 snowfall can be found at:
Hawaii has hosted the Pro Bowl. Remember Robert Edwards?
Football is an outdoor sport which is played in many climates. Weather is
simply a part of the game. It's unfortunate that the economics of making
big bucks from fair-weather fans has established the tradition of holding
SBs in southern stadiums. It's good that this may be changing.
