The Owners Have Spoken: Arizona Will Host Super Bowl XLIX in 2015

Arizona beat out Tampa to host Super Bowl XLIX in 2015. The Tampa Host Committee put out a vigorous campaign to host in 2015, even posting a billboard in Houston to get owners to support, but ultimately they lost. Although it came down a simple majority vote by owners, it seems money was the ultimate underlying factor. The Arizona Super Bowl committee found in a study presented to the owners that Super Bowl XLII generated $500 million in commerce for the region. Uhhh—nuff said. So, it’s Indianapolis in February followed by New Orleans  2013 and East Rutherford, N.J., in 2014. What do you think? What city should host  the Super Bowl?
