There's been lots of talk this week about the cold weather at the AFC and NFC Championship games today. The latest weather forecast for the kickoffs at the two games:
Foxboro: 22 degrees, feels like 10, partly cloudy
Green Bay: 2 degrees, feels like -13, clear
I played in conditions like this one time about four years ago. It was a flag football game in January: 9 degrees, felt like below zero, light snow. I'll never forget catching a pass at the end of the game; When the ball hit my hands, a shock ran down my arms that nearly caused me to drop the ball. I was in Aspen the last couple of days, and it was a high of 14 there, lows well below zero. In my wool hat, sweater and heavy jacket, I had trouble simply staying outside for longer than an hour at a time.
Good luck, boys! -Cyd Zeigler jr.
