Is the Superbowl Headed to Philly?

AH!  Can you imagine!  I mean if it's in NYC, why can't it be here?  The Linc is a kickass stadium and Philly is a kickass city.  The good thing is that Mayor Nutter  agrees and has come out in favor of hosting the event, telling NJ.com: “”Heck, yeah, we want it. And we can do it better than anyone else.”

“It would provide a substantial economic benefit to the city and its growing hospitality sector,” Nutter said. “It would mean an international focus on a city that is emerging as a desired destination for international visitors. And it would offer us the opportunity to market Philadelphia to a national audience. When it comes to doing big events and rolling out the red carpet, no city does it any better than the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.”

He also said, this is another reason why it would be a perfect fit. 

“Philadelphia has some of the most ardent and best informed sports fans in the country,” he said. “And having the Super Bowl at Lincoln Financial Field would be a tremendous development in our city’s sports history.”
