Super Bowl 48 is quickly approaching, and everyone seems to want to talk about the weather. That makes sense when considering the fact that the game, which has never been held outdoors and in cold weather in its 48-year history, will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. As you might expect, the prospect of snow and blistering cold is not scaring anyone away.
Tickets for the big game are currently starting at over $3,000 per ticket on StubHub.com. That price could rise even higher when people find out about all the goodies that will be coming with each seat.
Every seat at super bowl will have gloves, hand warmers, ear muffs, lip balms, and facial tissues, to name a few amenities

How can you go wrong? If you’re willing to pay $3,000 for a seat itself, you have to be willing to splurge for about $5,000 for one that comes with everything you need to keep warm and avoid chapped lips during the winter.
The potential for nasty weather has become more of a story than the game itself. Earlier this week, Accuweather.com launched a new site called WillItSnow.com that is dedicated to predicting the weather for the Super Bowl. Depending on how things go, this probably won’t be the last time there’s a chance for snow during the championship. At least fans can leave their hand warmers at home.
