We are a few years away from it but the golden anniversary of the Super Bowl is just over three years away and last month, the two finalists were announced for the game with either the new stadium for the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara or Sun Life Stadium in Miami being where the game will be held in February 2016.
It is very obvious that these are the two locations that deserve the game most since Miami has hosted the most Super Bowls with ten Super Bowls in southern Florida and the first AFL-NFL Championship Game was held in Los Angeles in 1966. There is no doubt in my mind that this game should be in California. I would have preferred it being in Los Angeles itself but that isn’t an option so the new stadium near San Francisco will have to do. There is no doubt that the tradition of this game is in California in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and you know the NFL will blow up the party before this game so these are two prime locations. In fact, the Super Bowl hasn’t been in California since 2003 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII so why not give the game back to its birthplace.
While the loser of the vote in May will be a finalist for Super Bowl LI with Reliant Stadium in Houston, this is going to be the biggest game in NFL history in all estimation and wouldn’t it be even more special if the game would feature the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs as it did in Super Bowl I. Anything is possible before the 2015 season so maybe we all get that matchup but this game has to be in California where it all started.
