The man who will oversee the 2014 Super Bowl at MetLife joined B&C for a few minutes this morning. The first topic on the docket: the comments made this week by Joe Flacco.
Mr. Kelly was shocked that Flacco is not in favor of a cold weather SB. He says it will be a tremendous economic boom for both Jersey and New York.
The NY/NJ SB will be different from most because it will span across two states. The teams and most of their fans will stay in Jersey while media and corporate type will be in NYC. The biggest topic with the outdoor SB is the weather! If Mr. Kelly could write the script, he would have a nice 40-50 degree evening with some moderate snowfall. As we all know the weather is unpredictable and can be pretty brutal in this area during February. That is why the SB committee is taking all necessary precautions to clear large amounts of snow fall if necessary.
If the Super Bowl at MetLife is a huge success it will most likely spawn other cold weather sites to host the event. B&C debate which outdoor stadium would be next. Craig thinks it will be New England and Boomer says Chicago.
Whether it’s a huge success or a giant flop the NY/NJ SB will undoubtedly be a monumental historical event…
A dear friend of the program stops by at radio row. Craig wonders how an offensive lineman could be the captain. Anthony says even though he wore the C, everyone knew No.7 was the man and the leader. “We would have ran through a wall for him,” the legendary O-lineman said.
This year’s hall of fame ballot includes two incredible offensive linemen. Anthony believes both Larry Allen and Jonathan Ogden deserve to be voted in this year. He admires there tremendous consistency at playing at such a high level.
Jets fans don’t have to be reminded about how great Joe Klecko was. Anthony played against him and can’t believe he does not have a yellow jacket. He says Joe was the strongest player he ever played against.
Craig wraps the interview up by asking Anthony a very important and very serious question…
