Farmers Almanac Predicts "Piercing," "Bitterly", "Biting" Cold Weather For Super Bowl Game
Farmers Almanac ^ | 1/21/14

Posted on 01/21/2014 11:06:01 AM PST by OneVike



Looks like Winter is going to do what it does best, act like winter. With Super Bowl XLVIII being played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey’s Meadowlands. Being a Viking fan, I will enjoy the game in the comfort of my living room. However, for the elite that will be at the game while listening to an opera singer during half time, it could be a bit miserable.

Any predictions as to who will come out on top? You would think that the weather will favor Denver, but Payton has never done very well in cold weather. So if I get my wish and the storm of the century hits during the game, will Seattle win, or will Payton win his second ring?

Keep in mind that the last time a team with a great defense played in the Superbowl, was when New Orleans took out their third QB. They ended both Warner and Favre's careers, while forcing Payton to get a few surgeries on their way to winning their first Super Bowl.

Many angles can be discussed in the upcoming game. The least of which is the way two of the smallest market teams will be playing in the NFL's big game.

I'll be cheering for Payton and the Broncos, but as long as it snows, and snows a lot, I'll be happy.

Any predictions?

Global warming!

Al Gore tried to warn us but we didn’t listen

If only we invested in carbon credits it might be warmer now.

Global Warming err "Climate Change" -

isn't it nice to be so logic-free that you don't have to understand that a theory has to be falsifiable in order to be "proven"?

If it looks like a cold game day, they just need to put Robert Sherman out there before the game for a rant, and everything will heat up.

What could go wrong with that?

Interesting. I never even considered that angle. So, the owner of the Seattle Seahawks is one of the biggest supporters of Global Warming, does that mean they will melt if it snows on them?

If so, then Denver would win by default. Right?

Ohh, no, no, no. That would be blasphemy! Cancel a football game because of snow? I think Vince Lombardi would turn over in his grave if they did that.

Its been snowing here (Maryland EST) since 9 or 10 am but its been pretty light snow for the most part, plus it was relatively warm, above 32 deg F, last night.

Now it is colder about 20 F.

I think the news stations weather kept most drivers home which is good.

I heard the Farmers’ Almanac report a few months ago, and predicted this would be the first Superbowl to get snowed out or postponed. Why are they holding it in a open-air Yankee stadium anyway?

An opera singer during half time? I thought The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars were performing during halftime. ...maybe I have the wrong info....

or I missed a joke somewhere...it’s been known to happen

And his estate should demand that his name be removed from the Trophy.

I may be in the minority, but I am HAPPY there is going to be a Super Bowl played in the ELEMENTS.

Given that I don’t watch the NFL much anymore, it probably doesn’t matter to the clowns running the league.

Nothing, as long as you're a high roller or in the commissioner's well-heated Skybox.

Praying for bitter cold and heavy snow before, during, and after the game.

I'll be watching the commercials and some of the game from the safety of SE Georgia.

Three weeks until Pitchers and Catchers report.

NO, the game is at the Meadowlands at Met Life Stadium which is in New Jersey.

Sorry, but they do not play football in New York City. The only place they play football in the state of NY, is in Buffalo.

I predict Broncos in a relatively low scoring game.

But whose idea was it to play the Super Bowl in New Jersey in February? They must have been nuts.

I doubt they will; they never bothered to get his name off the NJ Turnpike rest area north of the stadium in NJ that is crawling with deviants...

Still predicted as nicer weather than we had in the Wild Card round, and cold and snow are the proper weather for football.

I hope whoever sings won’t make it the Star Mangled Banner. Singers feel they want to make it unrecognizable. This crap should not be allowed for the National Anthem.

“I hope whoever sings won’t make it the Star Mangled Banner. Singers feel they want to make it unrecognizable. This crap should not be allowed for the National Anthem.

I couldn’t agree more!

If the rendition of the ‘Banner’ is poorly done and if the so-called ‘singer’ is female I say, “Go back to hookin’ on the corner!” If the so-called ‘singer’ is male I say, “Go back to shinin’ shoes in the bus station!”

My wife busts out laughing every time I say those things. ;-)

The “WayneS Almanac” predicts 70 degrees and comfortably dry weather for the Super Bowl, with plenty of good beer and pretzels available, and an excellent view of the game from every seat...

...in my living room.

Sorry whinnier baby. The Saints did not knock out any quarterback in the three game series you mentioned. Warner was going to retire and Favre and Manning continued to play next season. You lost because Favre cannot help being Favre and threw an intercept when you had the game won. Gave it to the Giants when he was at Green Bay. It is just what Bret does. That and bail his family out of jail.

Hey, I’m just repeating what I heard on the news this morning.

I never said I believe it’s going to happen.

Personally, if the weather is as bad as is being predicted, I think Mr. Goodell will spend a little time in the stands for a “photo op”, so that everyone can see him sitting outside in the elements in his fur hat and great coat, but that after 5 minutes or so he’ll suddenly realize he has urgent “commissioner’s business” to attend to in his nice warm luxury sky box.
