Super Bowl 2014: American media complain about being too hot at first cold weather Super Bowl
Concerns about freezing weather prove to be unfounded
Sunday 02 February 2014
Super Bowl XLVIII is being played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, the first time the showpiece event has been played in the open air in one of the USA's cold states.
There has been talk about 'Super Bowl Tuesday' - moving the big day to later in the week in case of apocalyptic snowstorms.
Fortunately the snow has stayed away and in fact the weather seems surprisingly mild.
So much so that the special heat lamps that have been put into the press area have led some members of the media to complain about it being too hot!
