One of the first Super Bowls that I covered was 1992 in Minneapolis. The temperature was Pluto.
There were ice sculptures everywhere. In fact, there was ice everywhere. There wasn't extensive congregating or socializing by fans outside around the downtown areas -- like in New Orleans last week -- because it was too frigid. It was so cold -- and I'm not kidding -- the city built an overhead system so pedestrians could cross swaths of downtown without going outside.
The Super Bowl never returned.
The next cold weather Super Bowl will be in New York next year and that could be a frosty mess, too.
