I hope we get 2013! We have to keep up with Miami in hosting the most Super Bowls!
But yeah, I really like the Saints deal. A truly modern stadium is really, REALLY cool. Even Soldier Field here in Chicago is really nice, but places like Nationals Stadium in DC, Great American Ball Park/Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, etc. are placed that blow me away. The Saints are planning for the elevated plaza of the Superdome to go from being a county fair to being Times Square.
I hope this will be the good future necessary for the Hyatt team to land financing for the renovation of that building.
BTW, as of last week, the huge signage pylon between the Superdome and the I-10/Crescent City interchange was covered in scaffolding. It's probably just getting repainted, but I thought the paint was fine before?
I'm hoping there will be some flashy new signs added, or the pylon will be painted a bold color.
