Paul Hornung: ‘I hope it snows like a b*tch at Super Bowl’

Count Paul Hornung among those who’s opposed to cold weather Super Bowls.

TMZ caught up with the former Packer and Hall of Famer at an airport and asked what he thought of Super Bowl 48, which, of course, will be held outdoors in MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2.

Hornung’s response was less than flattering.

“I hope it snows and rains like a [expletive],” he said, via NJ.com. “Let them play in that weather once. Then they’ll figure it out to have it in Miami, for heaven’s sake.”

If this year’s Farmer’s Almanac is any indication, Hornung is going to get his wish. Experts are predicting “bitter cold” temperatures, with precipitation expected in what is being nicknamed the “Storm Bowl.”

As an aside, Hornung believes the Patriots are favorites to make it to the big game. So there’s that.
