Default Dallas Gets 2011 SuperBowl

Quote:
The Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in North Texas doesn't have a name yet and won't open for two years, but it already has the country's top sporting event lined up. The NFL has chosen it as the host stadium for Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011.

North Texas beat out Indianapolis and Glendale, Ariz., in a vote of the owners at the league meeting in Nashville today. The Cowboys' stadium, which will have a retractable roof, is scheduled to be ready to open at the beginning of the 2009 regular season.

After the announcement, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thanked former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach for serving as chairman of the committee that lobbied owners to give the Super Bowl to North Texas.

"We're really going to have the best bid," Staubach said before the vote. "I really believe that based on the resources we have to be able to deliver the bid."

Arizona will host next year's Super Bowl, followed by Tampa in 2009 and South Florida in 2010.

Yeah, it's called the AFC Championship Game and the Steelers will deal the final blow to the Evil Empire in New England, ending Brady's career as a starter putting him on the path of Drew Bledsoe.

The media will have a field day as Belichick runs into the locker room crying, refusing to shake the hand of Tomlin. Tomlin smiles and waves to Belichick and returns to his locker room to hoist his 4th AFC Championship Trophy on route to his unprecedented 4th Super Bowl.

Belichick will then use the media outlets available to him - crying about how the Steelers shouldn't have won and that his witch craft and plot to rule the NFL was foiled by the zebras. He'll eventually man up in the announcers both a year later as he watches Tomlin win his 5th Super Bowl. And his words will be something like this, "I shouldn't have run away from him. Tomlin is a football god when it comes to coaching. He's definitely in a class all by himself and I did myself and him a great injustice by not shaking the hands of a man who is just a better coach, person, and father!"

Yep, they say these things go in cycles but im wondering when the dominance of the AFC is going to end.

There are probably 6 AFC teams I would have picked last year to beat anyone from the NFC.

Hopefully Dallas will get an ice storm that weekend and the game will be played on a frozen field as payback for the choice.

Giving out the SB as a thank you gift to cities building new stadiums (I include Atlanta in that list) is a joke. The one downside of SB XL was that Steelers fans had to go to Detroit (alhough since it was nearby and there was not exactly overwhelming demand to spend early February in Michigan it did make it a home game).

The SB should be at a neutral site that rewards the fans and players by going to someplace enjoyable, with a 3 year roto of Miami, New Orleans and someplace in SoCal (LA or SD).

Ha ha.

You know, if you were a less righeous man you make alot of money from that amazing ability to see the future.

Im also gonna have to call BS on the whole 'Belichick crying' thing you have playing out - everyone knows Bills only accesible emotion is grumpy

No matter - it's gonna have a fully-retractable roof that can fully open or close in 12 minutes.
