The Super Bowl’s Russian Roulette

My latest at Medium, what with the weather in the news.
As I write this on Wednesday morning, January 30, 2019, the Polar Vortex is causing wind chills as low as -40 in Minneapolis, Detroit, and Indianapolis. The weather is so dangerously cold that schools are closed in those cities. 
The Twin Cities area and the Detroit area have each hosted two Super Bowls. Indianapolis has hosted one. The New York City area, which will see wind chills in the negative teens today, has also hosted a Super Bowl. 
Through 2024, host cities for the Super Bowl have been selected and, fortunately, they’re all in warm climates. 
But I strongly urge NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL owners who vote on future host cities to remember Polar Vortex of 2019.
