    Roof to be open for the Super Bowl

    ROOF TO BE OPEN, FOR NOW
    Posted by Mike Florio on January 22, 2008, 4:53 p.m.

    Our pals P.A. and Dubay of KFAN raised a great question during the weekly PFT visit on Tuesday.

    Will the retractable roof at the University of Phoenix Stadium be set to “open” for Super Bowl XLII — and who makes the decision as to whether it’s opened or closed?

    Per NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, the roof will be open, unless the league anticipates game-time conditions that would make it advisable to slide the lid shut.

    The final decision will be made by the Commissioner.

    A quick Googling of the venue reveals that the roof can be closed in 10-15 minutes.

    Crimney, after last week's four days of -15 and lower (ambient), I will need air conditioning if the temp creeps above 50.
