The NFC North will always be about the Packers and the Bears. Old school teams that play outside in the cold and wind and snow and rain. Like the Steelers

The NFL will never allow a Lambeau SB, there's just not enough infrastructure (few hotels, restaurants, no clubs, small airport). I would imagine Pittsburgh (being much more similar to Milwaukee than Green Bay) could maybe pull it off. Either way, I agree that it would be great to see.
Yeah I feel the same way about baseball really too. I hate domed stadiums with a passion. Yep I imagine your rivalry with the Bears is a lot like ours with the Ravens but with more history between the two teams obviously since you guys go wayyyyyyyy back. Yeah it will never happen in Pittsburgh either unfortunately but I would love it for the reasons we've discussed. I love games played in the elements and I know you guys too heck you guys played in the Ice Bowl, the ultimate cold weather game so you know exactly what I am talking about.

GMU,
The only problem with a baseball stadium not having a roof is the league will cancel or postpone a game due to weather causing all sorts of logistical nightmares. If MLB would commit to playing games regardless of weather (which will never happen) than I agree, baseball should be played outdoors and as such stadiums have no need for a roof. However, in the current situation I love Miller Park and its retractable roof since us fans know there'll never be a rain delay or weather postponement.

Enjoy it while you have it.

Its nice to be on top. . .but it hurts like hell to come up short. It's a feeling i've become accustomed to being a Steelers fan.

Those 2 Super Bowls in my lifetime are only all the more special now.

I think the roof IS ripped off the Metrodome.

Credit where it is due. Rodgers had an incredible game and didn't make any misstakes (his receivers did, though) and totally deserved the MVP. No receiver could have won the MVP because all of them were guilty of dropped passes. Congrats to the Pack!
