Last-minute preps under way for Super Bowl

February 6, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Last-minute preparations are under way in Arlington, Texas near Dallas to make sure the Super Bowl is not a super mess.

Firefighters have been working around the clock clearing snow and ice from the Cowboys Stadium roof.

NFL officials have asked that the roof be cleared before fans start arriving. Six people were hurt last week by ice that fell from the stadium's roof. Crews are also working to clear highways.

Pittsburg and Green Bay fans are quite familiar with bitter temperatures but say they expected a warmer welcome from the Lone Star State.

Officials raised the temperature inside the stadium in an attempt to melt remaining ice.

Meantime, fans lucky enough to have made it to Dallas hung out at fan appreciation booths on Saturday, snapped pictures and trash talked.
