Joe Burrow shares the 1 thing about LA he does not enjoy

Joe Burrow on the field

Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are currently in Los Angeles preparing for their Super Bowl LVI matchup against the Rams. And although they haven’t had much time to explore the area, Burrow has settled onto one thing he dislikes about L.A. — the weather.

Burrow and the Bengals had a media availability on Friday ahead of the Super Bowl. That’s when he shared that the city was a little too hot for him this week.

“The weather is different,” Burrow said. “I don’t know if this is my kind of weather. I’m a Midwest kind of guy.”

Temperatures in Los Angeles are abnormally high at the moment with the Santa Ana winds blowing in and making things even more miserable. The daily highs have been approaching the mid-90s, which is roughly 20 degrees warmer than usual for this time of year.

Back in Cincinnati, things are considerably cooler as the winter weather has settled in.

Currently, forecasts project that temperatures will be near 90 degrees at the time of kickoff in Super Bowl LVI. The all-time record was set back in 1973 during Super Bowl VII when the thermometer hit 84. That game was played at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum.

Luckily for Burrow & Co., the roof panels at SoFi Stadium can be detached in order to let the heat escape.
