New York City couldn’t host just any little Super Bowl.
The greatest city in the world (as David Letterman likes to call it) is going to make the most of the Super Bowl coming to MetLife Stadium, even if the home of the Giants and the Jets isn’t anywhere near Manhattan.
The NFL plans to put a “Super Bowl Boulevard” down between 34th and 44th streets in New York City in time for the big game next year, the New York Daily News reports. The “football-themed extravaganza” will have several features, including large screens showing NFL Films footage, but the centerpiece will be a toboggan run.
That’s right: a toboggan run. An eight-lane, 180-foot-long, 58-foot-high toboggan run will be set up in the middle of Broadway. Up to 1,000 people will be able to ride it each hour, according to the Daily News.
More official details are expected to be released Tuesday, but really, what more do you need to know?
Check out the toboggan run — toward the uprights! — in the photo below.

There appears to be some water at Merion Country Club.
Sounds like a good night to us.
Only took 5 hours & 24 mins for that 10-8 #RedSox victory. Goodnight.—
