NFL legend and Hall of Fame player Paul Hornung doesn’t seem to mind that the Super Bowl will be played in a ‘cold weather city’ (New York) this season. In fact, he hopes it ‘snows like a bitch’, at least according to TMZ Sports.
Hornung, who spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers was spotted at the Los Angeles airport over the holiday weekend and was asked about the big game and how the potential weather could impact it.
True to form, the grizzled former running back/place kicker (and all around utility player) had no sympathy for the players who’ll likely brave the nasty conditions:
“Let ‘em play in that weather once,” Paul said … “then they’ll figure it out.”
Hornung famously participated in the famed 1965 NFL Championship game which featured a heavy snowstorm and 26 degree temperatures.
The Packers ended up defeating the Cleveland Browns in the mild blizzard with Hornung leading the way, scoring a touchdown en route to running for 105 yards in the win.
