Remember all those stories you read about the Super Bowl potentially being the coldest in history? Well it is a relatively nice day at MetLife Stadium at the moment, but the NFL prepared for the worst equipping the press box with heat lamps. Since they aren’t needed, it has turned the press box into a toaster oven and the press is complaining.
This is amazing. Media at Super Bowl is actually complaining about it being too hot in the press box.

The NFL media apparently being roasted by press box heat lamps is the greatest trick Roger Goodell has ever pulled: pic.twitter.com/ACmRRNb1Lv

Gonna be embarrassing when FOX shows the aux. press box and reporters have stripped down to their underwear because of the heat lamps.

I think the heaters in the aux press box are going to melt my computer

In the press box at the MetLife, which is behind glass like so many American press boxes. Going to try to find somewhere to sit outside

Heat lamps in the auxiliary press area, raising temps to about 85. I’ve got a healthy sweat going. pic.twitter.com/BObTprUmGV
