The first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in a cold-weather city is slated for 2014 in East Rutherford, N.J., which is an exception to the usual preference of choosing a warmer climate to play the game.

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is pleased with this decision. In fact, he is so pleased with New York/New Jersey hosting the Super Bowl that he’s going to try and bring the NFL’s biggest game to DC.

The Washington Times reports that Snyder went on the record yesterday when he said he’s anticipating a “great experience” for the NFL at the Meadowlands in 2014. Why? He thinks it will generate positive feedback, providing more of a reason to host the big game in other cold winter temperature cities.

The Redskins tried to secure a spot to host the 2003 Super Bowl and were left with an unsuccessful bid.

“We’re ripe to get one,” Snyder told the Times. We’ll see.

  2. FedEx is a horrible place for a Stupor Bowl. But if the NFL wants to put its premier event in a giant mausoleum surrounded by an ocean parking lots in the middle of nowhere, more power to them.
