The National Football League has kept its word when it told teams building new stadiums they might get a Super Bowl. In an unbelievable development, the league has voted to locate the 2014 game in the new arena replacing Giants Stadium in New Jersey. While it’ll be nice to see the tourist traffic directed to the metropolitan area, the idea of walking outside in February here, much less sitting through an outdoor football game, is daunting to all but hardened football fans. Fox will broadcast the game. Bruce Springsteen, who put on a swell series of concerts to close Giants Stadium, is the no-brainer choice to play at halftime, if the Boss is up for a Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out.
