Pro football is like nuclear warfare. There are no winners, only survivors.
Frank Gifford

A week ago Nick and I, along with his good friend Aaron, headed to Kansas City to see the Chiefs play our Miami Dolphins. It was officially the coldest game in Dolphins' history and the second coldest for the Chiefs.

The temperature at kick off was 10 degrees with a windchill of -12 and oh my goodness was it COLD! But this Florida girl was a trooper with those two Midwestern guys and we stuck it out the whole game. I went to get a cup of coffee from the snack bar and not only were all the little half & half containers frozen but they also told be their fountain soda lines were frozen solid. They had to pour soda from 2 liter bottles!

By the end of the game I couldn't feel my toes or fingers (and my coffee was crystalizing with frost by the time I reached the bottom of the cup). But we won the game and now have a good, really cold Miami Dolphins game story!

I love football... except in the cold. Bank of America in Charlotte, NC was no kind of enjoyable on Saturday for the WVU vs. UNC bowl game... but it sure wasn't -12!

Too cold for me! You are a TROOPER! I would have been home in bed under my down comforter after the 1st quarter....that is if I even would have made it out the door in the first place.
