Super Bowl 52 is coming to the Twin Cities. It came down to New Orleans and Minneapolis, but in the end, the owners felt Minnesota needed the mega event more.

NOLA has been a great host city for the SB, and it will be a great host city for the SB in the future. But after hosting the event 10 times, it was only fair that a different city got a chance.

By the time SB 52 rolls around it will have been 26 long years since Minnesota hosted America's biggest game. With the old Metrodome now blown to smithereens, the time is right to bring the big game back up North.

Yes, it will be cold in Minnesota when the SB is there. Fans will just have to deal with it and not let the weather ruin their SB experience. Minneapolis and St. Paui have plenty to offer in terms of entertainment, including the Mall of America and great night life.

Okay, so this is just a shot at the Vikings for not making the big game since Super Bowl XI. But in all seriousness, host teams have a very hard time playing in 'their own' Super Bowls. In fact, it's never happened.
