Last week, the Jets and the Giants made a big to-do out of the submission of the formal Bid Book for Super Bowl XLVIII, which seemed to be part of the buildup to the eventual announcement of whether New York/New Jersey will host the first-ever cold-weather open-air Super Bowl.
And the league is buying in to the creation of another offseason oasis. The destination of the 2014 Super Bowl will be announced live on NFL Network next Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. E.T.
Rich Eisen, along with former Cowboys Michael Irvin and Darryl “Moose” Johnston, will host the show from the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Dallas, site of the ownership meetings that will be conducted next week.
The finalists are New York/New Jersey, South Florida, and Tampa Bay. New York/New Jersey is widely believed to be the favorite to win the competition.
