I saw linemen playing with exposed arms. I thought you can get frostbite in a very short time when its 0 or below????

1. 1) They weren't out in the cold long enough, and
2) It's extremities that get frostbitten (fingers, toes, noses, ears), not arms.

2. What about Tom Coughlin's face and nose?
They were bright red, and that was in the first half?

3. Yes, likely incipient frostbite there. But I'm sure the team doctor made sure
he warmed up now and again.

The conditions at that stadium were indeed dangerously cold. I worried about some of the fans, given that alcohol keeps people from understanding danger.

4. I was wondering about that too. Especially those three
young women in bikinis!

5. They wore those pockets on the front and used those to keep their hands warm.
Everything else was mostly covered up.
