For a while, it looked like the NFL was going to consider moving the Super Bowl to New York City this year, both out of need for a new venue (the World Trade Center atrocities shifted the football season off one week, and there are major conflicts to be resolved to keep the game in New Orleans on the later weekend) and as a gesture to the city, to show that things can return to normal and pump money into the local economy. Unfortunately, though, it looks like the NFL is close to working out a deal that will keep the game in New Orleans. Bummer.
