EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Officials at New Jersey's sports authority say they've got everything ready for next month's Super Bowl - now all they need is a favorable weather forecast.
The Sports and Exposition Authority held its final pre-Super Bowl meeting Thursday at the Meadowlands as workers continued putting up massive tents in and around the complex.
The Feb. 2 Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium will be the first played outdoors in a cold-weather location.
Sports authority chairman Wayne Hasenbalg (HASS'-en-balg) said contingency plans are in place for all types of weather- and non-weather-related problems that might arise. He said he's waiting until Monday when a seven-day forecast will give a better idea of what type of weather to expect for the beginning of Super Bowl week.
