Earlier this week, the NFL announced that the 2014 Super Bowl will be contested at the Meadowlands (as long as the Jets play there, I refuse to call it Giants Stadium). This marks the first time the league has scheduled an outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city. I, for one think it’s a refreshing change.
Miami, New Orleans and SoCal are fun, but they can’t host every game. Tampa’s been done. Jacksonville couldn’t accommodate the crowds and was unseasonably cold when it played host. Phoenix poses the risk of players and fans being held indefinitely, until they can produce their papers. It’s high time that a northern city that people actually want to visit (no offense Detroit and Minneapolis) gets its own Superbowl.
I wanted to do a style guide for the first cold weather Super Bowl, but I realize that 2014 is a long ways off. 2014? That’s the future. Who knows what the world will be like? We’ll probably have our long overdue hoverboards by then. As this will be a highly speculative futuro-guide, I decided to hit up your one-stop-shop for all things futuristic, YESSTYLE, for a little help.
deepstyle Faux Leather Jacket $120
I expect that due to an increased focus on animal rights or massive cattle blight (I’m not sure which) leather will be a thing of the past in 2014.
deepstyle zip jacket $122
If Idiocracy taught us anything, it’s that our future selves won’t be bothered to get up and go to the bathroom to do our business. This jacket ensures that you will be able to use all of your chair’s functionality and not miss a second of the game.
Palus Inset Cardigan $58
Anyone who’s sat outside to watch a football game north of Atlanta knows that they key to staying warm is dressing in layers. I predict that by the time SB XLVIII rolls around, our clothes will do the layering for us. Note: this item comes in “onesize”. These run small, so I recommend sizing up.
deepstyle Hood Scarf $25
Much as we’ve outgrown single-use gadgets, we will also outgrow single-use accessories. Are you still carrying around a phone that just makes calls?
Slowbaba Cargo Pants $95
Frankly, these are just confusing. Your guess is as good as mine.
