“All this stuff just keeps getting thrown at us, but we’ve been prepared and we’re ready for these types of situations,” Arevalo said,
“other than the ice, that’s one thing we didn’t take into consideration.”

You ever try to drink and then discover that that ice has exactly the same curvature as the glass, so it has become a mini-dam? Whoever designed that ice shape should be forced to sit outside Texas Stadium after an ice storm.

Yes, I've had that same experience many times.

When evaluating dining establishments, the quality of ice is pretty high on my list.

Pizza Hut, for instance, turns out below average pizza, but the ice is super high quality. Not too crunchy, not too chewy. Perfect.

Cubed ice gets you no points.

LOL... This proves that we can play the SB in any city! So let's move it around every year, and let everybody host a SB. As for the "other" stuff, screw it, it's about the game... If you're as rich as they say all these corporate sponsors are, then you can have fun in the snow too.

Well, I hope Goodell has learned his lesson from this horrible winter, about how stupid it would be to have the SB in NYC or some cold-weather place. Best to keep it in warm climes with indoor stadiums, like Dallas, where it's always warm and they don't have weath... :rolleyes: Um, hold on a minute... Never mind.

Cowboys warn Packers: Your postgame shower will be frigid

Cowboys Stadium, home of Super Bowl XLV, cost over $1 billion, holds about 100,000 people, contains 2,900 televisions, 1,700 toilets and is home to two 160-foot wide video screens.

What it does not have is enough hot water for the home team to enjoy a warm postgame shower.

Via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys players Jason Witten(notes), Miles Austin(notes) and Jay Ratliff(notes) have all warned of the lack of hot water in the home team's locker room. Packers tackle Bryan Bulaga(notes) is not amused.

"Wow, that puts a damper on the day. [...] Cold water? I'm just saying, how much did that stadium cost: $1.2 billion? Get a hot water tank. It should be the size of a room."

It should probably be the size of a Walmart. In fact, for $1.2 billion, each member of the home team should have his own private bathing pond and two professional bathers to sponge him down.

But something tells me that if the Packers win, they won't mind the cold. If they lose, sure, that shower's going to seem a lot longer and a lot colder.

But if they overcome the Pittsburgh Steelers and earn a World Championship, it should be a pretty good day, regardless of the quality of their shower. "Damper on the day" may be an overstatement. In 20 years, what stands out about the day will probably not be the chilly postgame shower.

Didn't something semi-tragic happen a couple of years ago, where at training camp and tent fell on some people?? Not a good run of luck, if you ask me. The Cowboys suck and Jerry Jones is a beady eyed snake. They get what they deserve, sorry people actually got hurt though.

LMAO The idea of the Cowboys squealing like little girls as the shower water goes ice cold makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
