North Texas gets Super Bowl

The new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington will host the 2011 Super Bowl, the National Football League announced Tuesday.

NFL owners, in a secret ballot, chose North Texas over bids from Arizona and Indianapolis.

The game is not only expected to turn the world’s attention to the Dallas area – nearly 140 million people watched all or part of this year’s Super Bowl, played in Miami – but also to generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic benefits to North Texas cities and businesses.

“This is going to be a wonderful, wonderful event,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said following the announcement. “The Super Bowl asked us to do what we could do to take it to another level. When you’re talking about a Super Bowl, that’s a pretty challenging commitment.”

The new Cowboys stadium will hold almost 100,000 people, and far more visitors than that will flock to North Texas for Super Bowl XLV and the week of lavish events that will precede it.

Well, just how cool is that! I wonder if I know anyone, that’s knows anyone! πŸ™‚
