Officials Consider Bid For Super Bowl XLVIII
LEARNING ON THE JOB: In Dallas, Jeff Mosier reports North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee officials "have begun analyzing the good and the bad from their trip to Florida" for Super Bowl XLIV. Committee VP & COO Tara Green said that "roundtable discussions of the South Florida experience will start this week." A "host committee meeting is scheduled for late February, too." Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert said that the region has "lots of venues, a massive network of highways and 'a stadium that's off the charts.'" Leppert indicated that "even being landlocked could be an advantage," as last week the South Florida coast "compressed traffic into a narrow corridor and led to traffic delays, though the trip to Sun Life Stadium was smooth and fast Sunday" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 2/9).
