Bad weather football games

The 1963 Sydney Rugby League Grand Final between Western Suburbs and the St George Dragons:

Exactly, if you can still tell the teams apart, it shouldn't be considered 'bad weather'. _41053569_mud_203.jpg

This is England vs Wales in the 60s. Wales are in red.

The most bizarre sporting event ever! Nothing compares

How about a hockey player killing a bat on the ice during a Stanley Cup Final game and then the arena filling with fog? Seems more bizarre to me than fog outside.

In the CFL the Grey Cup from 1950 called "The Mud Bowl"

The 1962 "Fog Bowl"

and the 1977 "Ice Bowl"

I've seen film of the fog bowl--or rather at some points I've seen fog on film.

How about bad waether before the game.

In 1971 lots of rain on the new astroturf inn Vancouver affected the game.

The 1993 Australian Football League game between the Brisbane Bears and the St Kilda Saints, which features a brief but very intense hailstorm:

I will not click that link. I refuse to accept that Australia has bad weather
You are sadly sadly mistaken my friend

Alright this thread has American, Canadian, Association (soccer), Australian, Rugby (League & Union) football; might as well include some Gaelic Football as well:

Here is a rare Gaelic Football game in the snow from February (Louth vs. Galway NFL matchup):

The Cheifs murdered the Redskins in a 2013 game. Jamaal Charles and Dexter McCluster were somehow unaffected by the rock-hard field of ice. They ran at a speed 10 notches above everyone else!

I am about 10-15 minutes away from Philly and I remember I was on the road that day. A 30 minute trip on the highway turn into a slipping and sliding commute of about 2 hours. It came out of nowhere really. But it was fun to see that game on TV.

There were more quick kicks in the first three minutes of that Ohio State-Michigan video than have probably occurred in all games since then.  It's like no one actually wanted to have possession.

 

The Ravens and Vikings played on the same day as those Redskins-Chiefs and Eagles-Lions games.  The last three minutes of the Ravens game were absolutely insane.
