We All Scream For Ice Cream

All these limp wristed whiners need to shut up. Yes, it might be a tad chilly in the Meadowlands for the Super Bowl (and on Ground Hog's Day, in case you forgot; census day on Block Island, too). So what? Here's some important data.

Here's the rundown on the NFL Championship games. Almost all north of the Mason-Dixon line. At the end of December, mostly. Here's a fact from meteorology: seasons aren't determined by solstice/equinox dates, but by actual weather. So, summer is June/July/August. And winter is December/January/February. January is the coldest month. February is the end of winter, not the middle.

I suppose that most of the whiners are too young or stupid to know about The Ice Bowl (NOAA's page). Just look it up lots of places for more detail.
The 1967 NFL Championship Game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers, played on December 31 at Lambeau Field, is known as the Ice Bowl, arguably one of the greatest games in NFL history.

Yes, yes it was.
