West Coast Super Bowl?

Hi. Sorry it’s been a while. I get busy and then I forget to blog. I’ll try to stick to writing something here once a week. We’ll see how I do. Between (finally) graduating and landing a full-time job, there are no guarantees.

My mom and I were talking the other day, and both of us decided that while we are going to watch the Super Bowl, we’re not happy about it. Why? There’s no West Coast connection. It’s two East Coast teams who just met in the Super Bowl a few years ago playing in a Midwestern city. Now, I’m all for the revitalization of the Midwest (setting the Super Bowl in Detroit last year was awesome), but when are we going to get our turn? When will we get a West Coast Super Bowl?

I know the argument against Seattle. Apparently it rains too much here for them to stage a Super Bowl outdoors. It’s too cold, they say. (Try telling that to a Seattle native on a day like today, when the temperature is upwards of 50 degrees and it’s gorgeous!) Well, if not Seattle, why not San Francisco, Oakland, or San Diego? Those three cities have mild, dry climates.

Besides, isn’t weather supposed to be one of the elements of football?

Apologies to Indianapolis, but maybe the NFL ought to put the Super Bowl in a place people actually want to go to. Like Seattle. Or San Francisco. We West Coasters are tired of feeling left out.
