Jeffri Chadiha of ESPN.com feels that some cities are better equipped, both from an amenities standpoint as well as with great weather, to host the biggest, most celebrated NFL game of the year. And I agree with him (mostly because I'm a San Diego native). Here are Jeff's top five cities to host the Super Bowl:
1. Miami: This doesn't even need an explanation. Any time you can spend a week on the beach and enjoy 80-degree weather before the game, you're going to be pleased with the experience.
2. San Diego: It's not Los Angeles, but it doesn't have to be. The Gas Lamp District is a central location for partying and most people don't even care that the game is held in a dilapidated stadium. Again, the constant sunshine is huge here.
3. New Orleans: Prior to Hurricane Katrina, this would've been the top city on this list. You've got the French Quarter, hotels that are well within walking distance of all the fun and great food. As far as set-ups go, you couldn't ask for better logistics.
4. Phoenix: The drive to the Cardinals' new stadium in Glendale will be harsh, but people can deal with the traffic. This city has hip clubs, excellent food and a zillion resorts. In other words, it can take care of its tourists.
5. Tampa: Hey, somebody had to be fifth. I'd take this city over Houston, Dallas, Jacksonville or Atlanta any day. It might not be as big as those places, but it's also much warmer there in late January and early February.
