Kansas City by far put on the best show yesterday, but the Grand Finale this weekend is tonight in Green Bay. The high for today is supposed to be 2 degrees, and any wind will only take the chill factor lower.
Lambeau Field has been frozen solid for a couple of months now, and I have to think the local Walmart parking lot is more forgiving than Lambeau is right now. The footballs tonight will be hard as granite and near impossible to grip. This is how Football is meant to be played, and quite frankly I would support placing the Superbowl game permanently at Lambeau Field just because of the conditions there in February.
It is possible that by game end, air temp could be -18 degrees F. No game winning 54 yard field goals tonite!
As for a Super Bowl at Lambeau... it will never happen. Not enough restaurants, hotels and the like. The event is much larger than the game.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
