Pam Oliver, the Fox reporter who will be working the sidelines at Super Bowl XLVIII, didn't endear herself to New Yorkers on Thursday as she emceed a midtown event promoting the game and was lucky she didn't get booed out of the building.
When she asked Al Kelly, the president and CEO of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, what fans can do to keep warm at the game besides wearing a jacket, Kelly mentioned how games the end of December can be colder that it will be at the Super Bowl.
"If fans get frostbite, that's their own fault," Kelly said. "I'm not going to worry about a couple of idiots who can't dress properly."
Many in the event sponsored by the Association for a Better New York, laughed at Kelly's comment. They weren't laughing at all when Oliver responded, "They're probably Jets fans."
Oliver seemed to be going out of her way to be cynical and condescending. Not satisfied with just insulting Jets fans, Oliver then took a broad swipe at New Yorkers.
She asked Giants treasurer Jon Tisch, the co-chairman of the host committee, "How are we going to instruct the people of this area, particularly New Yorkers, to be nice, to say please and thank you."
