Committee hits stretch run for NY-NJ Super Bowl
Question of the Day
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The NFL draft is history. Organized team activities are under way. Minicamps will follow next month, and training camps will open a month after that.
The 2013 season is on the horizon and so is the cold-weather Super Bowl.
The title game on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium is less than nine months away and no one knows it better than Al Kelly, the chief executive of the New York-New Jersey host committee.
In the past two years, Kelly has built an organization, made plans, recruited volunteers and spent hours with local, state and federal authorities making sure everything connected with the game will go off without a hitch, whether it snows or rains or sleets or _ unexpectedly _ is pleasant.
Bottom line is the stretch run for the big game has started.
