Welcome back: Super Bowl will return to New Orleans in 2013
Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- New Orleans is a Super Bowl city again.

NFL owners voted Tuesday to play Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 in New Orleans, the first time the championship game will be held in the city since Hurricane Katrina shredded parts of the Louisiana Superdome, home to the Saints. The hurricane devastated the Gulf Coast four years ago and caused 1,600 deaths.



Something just seems so right about playing the SuperBowl in New Orleans. http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true

this is great news for Nawlins. Congrats. Anyone care to host me at their pad during SB week 2013 near the "qwata?"

I prefer to be east of Canal Street but a few blocks away from the craziness.

First off, congrats blitz on getting the format down for posting articles, it was driving me bonkers.

Second, The City of New Orleans has been a fighter since Katrina and this is a great victory for them to be once again a city special enough to hold the Super Bowl.
