According to reports, the FBI is investigating suspicious white powder that was sent to at least five hotels near the site of Sunday’s Super Bowl in East Rutherford, New Jersey. To this point, there have been no updates or notices that would impact the Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, but obviously this is a situation they will take quite seriously.
If this is a real effort to inflict harm on people in and around the Super Bowl, they are trying to make it happen when there is an incredible amount of security to find and stop it. Security lines at the Super Bowl are expected to take between two and three hours in addition to the fact that fans can only go to the stadium in NFL approved shuttle buses, so if the investigation has not concluded before the game on Sunday, the league and security will be in terrific position to ensure the game is safe both for the players and fans.
As more information is available, we will provide updates. The best case scenario is that it is a idiotic hoax, but at least it appears to have been caught before it could do any damage.
