Cold, Schmold! The Super Bowl’s Still Got Nothing On The Grey Cup
January 31, 2014

This Sunday is the Super Bowl, and as usual in the days preceding the game, one of the major talking points is the cold. Super Bowl XLVIII is taking place in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at the open-air MetLife Stadium, and it's poised to be the coldest Super Bowl ever. Usually the game is held indoors or in the South — though given this year's weather, that might not have been much warmer. All told, the prospect of the Seahawks and the Broncos freezing on the field has much of America freaking out a little bit.

Of course, Canadians are no strangers to watching and playing football in cold weather. The Grey Cup takes place every year at the end of November, when temperatures almost always dip below freezing. And let's face it, what's not to love about that? For a preview of what Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning might experience on Sunday — and just to revel in a bit of unabashed Canadianess — we've compiled some images from the iciest, snowiest, coldest Grey Cups in the gallery above.
