How great would it be to not only host the Super Bowl, but to play in it and win it in your home city?!!!!

It would be sweet.  I really thought we would do it in 2000, that was so disappointing...

why are they going straight back to friggin Miami in 2010?!

Because it may be the best location.  Reportedly over $1 MILLION people hit the Miami area for the game...ridiculous number.

Great weather (rain was a fluke), plenty to do, great golf, tons of hotels and restaurants, Doral for the NFL, the beach for the wives, it's in the Southeast, etc.

Tampa's weakness is it's size and it's lack of hotels.  Orlando helps.
Arizona's weakness is the travel.
NO's weakness is it's availability of great golf, nice resorts for owners.
SD's weakness is the travel.

Those are the mainstays...Anything over the Mason-Dixon line (or Dallas) is done bc an owner was owed a favor.

It would be nice to see the Superbowl played in snow one year. Its one thing to be playing the Superbowl in 70 degrees but the cold would pretty interesting to watch.

Reminds you of that? Garcia will be kidnapped by a man disguised a woman? Einhorn is Finkle! Finkle is Einhorn? Somewhere Keepon is spitting and wiping his mouth.

The size of the Metro area is what is appealing to Miami - other than hotel space is a best a push.  Takes the same time to get to Orlando as it does to get from South Beach to Ft. Lauderdale.  So adding in Orlando, St. Pete, Sarasota, Bradenton - no I don't think Miami is the best spot.  Make sure I have every thing that is mine when I leave that area - don't want a reason to have to go back,
