Call it a "special sequal thread"....

Unlike former host cities, this year's Super Bowl will be, let's say, expanded. Instead of one city getting everything in one pot, the AFC Champs (Pittsburgh) and ESPN will be in one city, the NFC Champs (Green Bay) and big parties will be in another city, and the game itself will be in a city between the first two.

It's the Metroplex's time to shine for a whole week, but out of the three cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington, who gets more?

Probably Ft. Worth, for the simple reason that Dallas (or at least the Dallas part of the metroplex) already gets a lot of national attention, while Ft. Worth usually has a much lower profile.

Well sure, but just because Dallas already has the "top billing" in DFW it doesn't mean that the WILL get the same recognition...

This is basically a guess.

I voted FW for that reason

If Fort Worth can't get it's name out right here on this stage, they never will.

Yeah... that makes me both excited and nervous at the same time.

BTW, uh, there's supposed to be an ice storm comin', so you Pittsburghers and Green Bay citizens should feel right at home this week.

Luckily, this is happening early in the SB week. Otherwise, this is 2000 Atlanta all over again

What happened in 2000 Atlanta? I wasn't particularly football or new savvy then. Just an ice storm mucking up the works?

Yeah. It was a pretty big ice storm. It's maybe the reason why the NFL has soured on the city because the GA dome is still a pretty decent stadium. They previously held the superbowl in 1994 before the one in 2000.

Fort Worth is going to do really well. ESPN and the Steelers are based in downtown Fort Worth, visitors will really like Ft Worth, if the weather doesnt ruin it.
