On the same February day that the New York area is having a thick layer of white shag carpeting installed by Mother Nature and Company comes a development that could lead to the first Super Bowl played under snow globe conditions.

Per SportsBusiness Daily, the Arizona Host Committee unanimously voted on Thursday not to bid for Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014, due to "the poor economic climate and threat of losing hundreds of safety and law enforcement personnel in budget cuts."

As a result, the only remaining bidders are Tampa, Miami, and New York. SI.com's Peter King pointed out in response that the "clubhouse leader" is the new Giants Stadium. You know, the open-air facility that currently is sporting a shiny winter veneer.

Frankly, we've got no problem with the possibility. The folks in New York would surely mobilize every available plow and truck and tank to clear a path to and from the venue where the game will be played, and most of the Super Bowl week events surely will be within walking distance of the media hotels.

Locations have been selected for the next three NFL title games. Super Bowl XLV will be played at Cowboys Stadium. Super Bowl XLVI, if there is one, will be played in Indy. And Super Bowl XLVII will be played in New Orleans, where there likely will be plenty of reminders that the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV.

SB locations.....West Coast, Gulf Coast. Anywhere else is just stupid. Since they have turned the SB into a two event, no one wants to be up to their ass in snow that long. Nothing like packing your longjohns, gloves and stocking cap to go see the SB.

If they are willing to give New York a Super Bowl, that means the the climate in Charlotte can/should no longer be taken in to consideration when picking a Super Bowl site, right?

It would be interesting to see a cold weather Super Bowl...If the NFL didn't have a problem with the rain in Miami a couple of years ago, then the chance of snow shouldn't bother them either.

Are you kidding me? Rain you can deal with......snow can shut down a city.

Nah, it's not seating capacity. It's hotel capacity.

I'd love to see a legit cold weather Super Bowl. Bout time.

when i was in IL recently it didn't seem much better. i swear nearly everyone was driving down the hwy like grandmas. only difference seemed to be that the state is equipped to get the snow off the roads. people's driving skills and the rush for bread and milk was still there.

They had a SB in Detroit. Granted the field is covered in a dome but the whole city isn't.
