Default Houston has a super shot

Houston has a super shot
By Katie Lewis
www.HoustonTexans.com



Texans owner Bob McNair talked to the Houston media today about the city's proposal to host the 2009 Super Bowl. After the success of last year’s Super Bowl festivities in Houston, Texans owner Bob McNair is ready for round two. Houston is one of four finalist cities that will be considered to host the 2009 Super Bowl game. Along with Miami, Atlanta and Tampa, Houston will submit a proposal a month before the NFL’s May meetings, at which time each city will make a formal presentation in front of the NFL owners. The league expects to announce a winner at that time and Houston is already hard at work to make sure their name tops the list.

But McNair recognizes that the Space City’s competition is stacked. Tampa has hosted the Super Bowl three times (1984, 1991, 2001). Miami has had the sports spectacle eight times and is already named the site of the 2007 Super Bowl. And maybe the toughest competition will come from Atlanta who has already hosted twice in 1994 and 2000 and is moving full steam ahead for another bid. “Some people are under the impression that it’s a foregone conclusion that we’re going to be selected in ’09 so the first thing I want to let you know is that we’re going to have to compete,” McNair explained. “It’s going to be a matter of which city wants it the most.”

While McNair believes that the Houston community aggressively welcomes the opportunity to host again, he knows cities like Atlanta are just as desirable. “Atlanta is very serious about this competition and it goes beyond the value of the Super Bowl in the city of Atlanta in that the Falcons would like to improve their situation in reference to their lease at the Georgia Dome,” he said. Ultimately, the decision lies in the hands of the owners who will collectively decide which city can provide the most attractive facilities, activities and climate.

McNair believes that Houston is right up there if not above the competition when it comes to accommodating the participating teams in addition to the hundreds of thousands of fans who flock to take part in the week’s activities. “When they’re looking at the facilities, we’ve got the upper hand,” McNair said about Reliant Park and the surrounding sports complexes in the city. “We have world class facilities.” Also included in Houston’s proposal will be hotel accomodations, restaurants, transportation, nightlife and leisure activities.

In 2004, Houston’s downtown hosted around 300,000 people on just Friday and Saturday nights alone prior to the big game. Houston was able to generate over $300 million for the community by hosting the event and McNair knows that the economic and global prosperity is invaluable. “I think it really created a lot of positive energy on behalf of Houston,” McNair smiled. “Those of you that were here for the Super Bowl last year know what kind of energy was generated by virtue of it. “It’s something that’s hard to describe and the positive reaction from all over the world was something we had not seen in Houston for a long time.”

Because of the number of new stadiums around the league with plans for construction under way, McNair knows this may be a very valuable window of opportunity for the city to host. Another chance may not come for some time. “This is not a slam dunk,” he said about winning the bid. “If we lose this opportunity it could be several years before we’d be able to get the next one because we have the stadiums that are being built and hosting a Super Bowl could be a part of their approval for the stadium.” And he strongly believes that the city of Houston can put on an even bigger and better show in 2009. “I would hope that what we could do is emphasize the value of a Super Bowl to the community and as we keep emphasizing that people will be energized and just as enthusiastic as they were before," McNair said. "It really invigorated the downtown area."

Houston is a great host for the Super Bowl. It was a fun experience last year and everything seemed to work out as planned. Hope we get it in 09.

Some people have been complaining about how all these new stadium's are getting Superbowl bids........Jacksonville does not fit in that catergory but.......Houston, Detriot, Arizona, all have new stadiums and will get the Superbowl. I have heard people saying there should be a rotation of where the Superbowl is played, kinda like the National Championship game in college. What do you guys think about it?

By the way, who gets the SB in 2008?

I think that it would be great if we indeed hosted the SB in 2009 as well as played in it! Just wishful thinking. One can alway hope.

It was set up to avoid quick one word replies. This is not really a bad thing but the board use to have a top posters list in terms of number of posts. This created a "race" to see who could have the most posts. Its quick and easy to add to your total with one word or just a smiley face. It was really meant to discourage post racing and meaningless posts.

Default Houston SB thoughts

I'm already looking forward to another Super Bowl in Houston; I enjoyed watching the show last year (on TV).

I know Dallas missed the chance for SB because ground had not been broken before the deadline to submit their NEW stadium, but I would guess they will be next in line, And with the new state-of-the art facility planned I would imagine a HUGE venue! Mr J. Jones has do us ONE up!

John McClain on the morning show seems to think that Houston will get the nod...although he said Atlanta is making a very, very hard push to get the superbowl there.
He did state that all the journalist that went to the Superbowl in Atlanta did not have a good time, had bad weather (ice), and people got killed outside popular nightclubs/tourist spots (ie-Ray Lewis incident).
He stated that most all the press that came to Houston had a great time, the planning was very structured, and nobody was killed during a superbowl related event.

well it would be great for the city of houston to host another superbowl in 2009 but i have a feeling one of the more flashy cities will be getting the bid...since all the talk dissing jacksonville and they were dissing houston last year so i just see them start narrowing it down to south florida, south california...etc etc
