Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie said Monday he is enthusiastic about the New York-area Super Bowl next year, and will push for Philadelphia to host one, if the New York venture is a success.
“Growing up in Boston, I went to more great games in snow conditions,” Lurie said during the lunch recess at the NFL Meetings at the Arizona Biltmore hotel. “Some of the most memorable games I’ve ever been to were very difficult and wonderful conditions. I would have no fear of it snowing — as long as there’s no public safety issue that day, I think it would be great if it’s snowing a bit.”
Asked then if he would want a roman-numeraled game for Philly, Lurie said. “I will. Yes, I will. If it’s a success. New York will help us.”
