Yeah, I always felt like they should start the baseball season a month earlier. At least this way, the world series would have a bit warmer weather
Problem with that is that games are already at risk of snow-outs in early April, putting them in March would guarantee it. Never made sense that they don't intentionally rig the schedule so that all of the early April games are played in the southern states, or out west, or at least in domes. Let the northern teams play on the road the first 2 weeks of the season...
Starting baseball a month earlier would be a mess. As Scout said, there's already a pretty good risk of having a snow-out in April (moreso than October). Not sure about other places, but March is the snowiest month in MN. And yeah, you can rig the schedule somewhat (seems to me they already do that to some extent), but with a 162 games, you're kind of limited to how much you can dick around with a baseball schedule.

But football games are often played in adverse conditions. So why not allow for the possibility of weather coming into play during a Super Bowl? If a potential host city has the stadium, infarstructure and the money to bid, go for it.

If actual blizzard conditions occur, then the SB becomes a logistical nightmare, but a little light snow is not a bad thing.
Speaking of which, I wonder how long it will be before we get one in Green Bay, Wisconsin?
Never. Green Bay and its suburbs (technically, Lambeau Field is in Ashwaubenon) are absolutely not big enough to handle the influx of 120,000+ people and the absolute circus that comes with a Super Bowl. The infrastructure isn't there, given that the entire metropolitan area is in the neighborhood of 280,000 people. Hotel rooms, parking, public transit, convention space for the NFL Experience, Radio Row, practice facilities -- it's just not there. You'll never see a Super Bowl in Green Bay.

I mean, I suppose they could just dock 30 cruise ships in Green Bay for the hotel space ... oh, shi--
