Default 2011 Super Bowl goes to.....

Who's gonna get it? They'll decide tomorrow. Vote if to see if you're related to Ms. Cleo.

Indianapolis resident Jeff Zelt seemed visibly perplexed as he considered the city's chances to beat out Phoenix and Dallas to host the 2011 Super Bowl.

This could be kind of tough; they are a lot bigger cities than we are . . . No . . . Well . . . I don't think so. I hope so," said Zelt, 37, moving from doubt to optimism and then despair. "Well, I don't know. We'll have a nice facility, but . . ."
With a decision now less than a day away, many Hoosiers may be hoping Indianapolis is picked to be a Super Bowl site. But like Zelt, many have found actually gauging the city's chances to land the big game much more problematic.
Indianapolis is competing with North Texas and Arizona to host the game. The league's 32 team owners are expected to select a location at their spring meeting this week in Nashville, Tenn.
Indianapolis 2011, the nonprofit group trying to lure the Super Bowl to Indianapolis, headed to Nashville on Sunday. The group makes its pitch Tuesday, based on a bid submitted last month.....

Super Bowl XLII, Glendale, Ariz. -- Feb. 3, 2008
Super Bowl XLIII, Tampa, Fla. -- Feb. 1, 2009
Super Bowl XLIV, South Florida -- TBA, 2010

I would say Dallas, since their copycat stadium should be ready by then....

I think Dallas will get it. That new stadium they are building is going to be a beast - a nice one at that - and I can't see the NFL not trying to showcase it. Although we will soon find out how many owners Jerrah has stepped on by the number of votes he garners.

It really should go to Dallas. 'zona get's it all the time, and a Super Bowl in Indy will be like the Super Bowl in Jax minus the cruise ships, I mean extra hotels.

You seem like you have a lot of jealousy towards the Houston Texans. But what ever foats your boat and gets you through life I guess.


The Money that is being spent on the stadium they are building and the NFL is all about money so I am sure they will get it, but who would want to go there to see a game?

It's a boring off season. AZ will probably not get it until they start recognizing MLK Day, or that was the reasoning for them not getting it in the past.

Weird....your team has a history of leaving town and changing it's name, yet you seem to display some suspension of reality about the Texans and their 30 year lease with Reliant Stadium.

See, our owner was willing to work with the city of Houston and the Houston Rodeo to be partners in a state-of-the-art football stadium and practice facility across the street. Our owner understands the rich traditions and history of professional football and established tailgating and fan-friendly atmosphere from the beginning. Our owner is not scared to admit that he's going bald. Our owner is a class act and not a big fat piece of crap.

Have a wonderful day.

I say Dallas gets it. It's a benefit for building a stadium.

After going to Miami, I think all Super Bowls should be in Miami. Because the fun places to go are pretty centralized.

PHX, Dallas and Indy are all sort of spread out.

Indy in February is just wrong on so many levels. Dallas might not be terribly fun that time of year either, but Indy is just wrong.

As long as the stadium and infrastructure are on schedule, it's a lock that Jones gets the Super Bowl. And it could be in the rotation, seeing that it will be expandable to 100,000 seating for major events. Cha-Ching.

I was an Oilers fan, too. But they no longer exist.

And I know he's yanking chains, which is why I yank back.

Couldn't agree more. That stadium in Dallas is a marvel of modern engineering on a level with the Palm Island projects in Dubai or the Three Gorges/Yangtze Dam in China.

Other than Jerry narrating the whole thing, this website is an incredible resource on the Cowboys new stadium under construction

the new Wembley Stadium in London is pretty nice too and was just christened with the FA Cup Championship this week between Manchester United and Chelsea. Chelski won

I know it is a fedral holiday but I was not sure about a state holiday. There name use to come up all of the time then get pulled based on that reasoning. It was the NFLs way of pressuring the state into recognizing the holiday.

BTW very few people get MLK as a paid holiday.
