Goodell ready to tackle elements at Super Bowl
January 20, 2014, 3:10 pm

NEW YORK (AP) He'll be wearing a coat and no doubt gloves.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be like most other folks at the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 in East Rutherford, N.J. - he'll be outside.

The league says the commissioner will be sitting in the elements as he regularly does at games - rain or shine, cold or warm.

Goodell often sits in the stands or is in a luxury box that has outdoor seats. He's done that in the past, even in serious chill.

He sat in the stands in Minnesota at the outdoor game after the Metrodome roof collapsed in 2010. He also once sat at a game in Chicago where he said his beer froze.
