NFL Determined To Keep Schedule
DALLAS (AP) – The NFL is sticking to its Super Bowl schedule Tuesday despite an ice storm that has struck the Dallas / Fort Worth area.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello sent out a Twitter message saying media activities at Cowboys Stadium will go on as planned. Both the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers are scheduled to be available for one hour for the hundreds of reporters covering Sunday’s game.
Aiello tweeted: “The show goes on. Media day is on schedule. Drive carefully. The stadium roof is closed.”
Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has closed due to the storm, at least for a while. A wintry blast of ice, blustery winds and plummeting temperatures has also closed schools and snarled traffic.
