Everybody likes to talk about the weather and on the east coast of the U.S. the past two days they got mugged by old man winter.

Just imagine if Tuesday’s storm, that dropped up to a foot of snow in the New York area, had hit on Super Bowl Sunday.

It would have made for a chaotic scene out in New Jersey at best and been winter’s version of the final day in the fall of Saigon.

There are plenty of folks that would be pleased as punch and laughing at the NFL for being so brain dead as to schedule their biggest day of the year for a northern-based, open-air site such as MetLife Stadium that is home to both the Jets and Giants. Hey NFL, you get what you deserve.

OK, so what’s the weather forecast for Super Sunday, which also happens to be Groundhog Day.

It’s doubtful there will be a repeat of Tuesday’s near blizzard conditions but it will still be cold with the possibility of some snow.

Hey, it’s winter. What did you expect?
