Am very much dreading the SuperBowl next week.
Just received the following from my office:
"As you are likely aware, the National Football League Super Bowl XLVIII will be played in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at MetLife Stadium on February 2. In the run-up to the big game, there will be significant traffic and travel disruptions in the New York Tri-State area due to the various events associated with the game.
The events will include the “NFL Experience” along “Super Bowl Boulevard” in New York, a 14-block venue that will stretch from 34th Street to 48th Street along Broadway, from January 28 – February 2. Super Bowl Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic southbound for four days preceding the game. The west side of Manhattan on the Hudson River, including the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at Pier 88, will also be taken over with multiple activities."
SuperBowl Boulevard? What kind of bullshit is this? So now in addition to the normal nonsense I have to deal with in Midtown, I have to deal with mass street closings for a full week, along with even larger masses of clueless tourists?
And since when was the SuperBowl a week long? JFC.
