NFL Owners Meeting: New Orleans Hopes to Land Super Bowl LII in 2018

USA TODAY Sports

Voting takes place today at the NFL owners meetings in Atlanta to decide which city deserves to host Super Bowl LII in 2018.

NFL owners will be meeting today in Atlanta, GA for the 2014 Spring League Meeting to discuss several pressing topics, including playoff expansion and future NFL Draft dates.

More importantly, the owners are going to vote today to decide which city will get to host Super Bowl LII in 2018 and our dearly beloved New Orleans is one of the three final teams in the running, along with Minneapolis and Indianapolis.

Apparently, New Orleans is the favorite to host the big game again. Not surprising considering they are a perfect 10-for-10 on their attempted Super Bowl bids. And why not? We've got it all: more experience hosting large parties/events than anyone, perfectly located stadium in the downtown area, and world-famous nightlife and cuisine. But Minneapolis will be promoting their brand new stadium, which will be complete in 2016, and cities with new stadiums have been a perfect 7-for-7 on their first Super Bowl bid attempts.

New Orleans will present second following Minneapolis, but before Indianapolis. The New Orleans presentation team, which include members of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, New Orleans Saints and city officials, will have 15 minutes to make their final proposal. That will be followed by a five minute pitch by Tom Benson to his fellow owners. The theme for their bid is "N.O. Better Time," alluding to the city's tricentennial celebration which would coincide with the Super Bowl in 2018.

Will New Orleans earn the opportunity to host it's record eleventh Super Bowl? There's certainly a lot of money riding on it. We'll find out soon enough.
