Following the success of Super Bowl XLVIII -- the NFL's first open-air cold weather Super Bowl -- a slew of northern and northeastern cities are hoping to score some of the economic action that was initially estimated to pump $500 million into the New York/New Jersey metro area last week (though actual numbers could be shaping up to be much lower).
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently voiced his desire to see not just a Super Bowl in the Windy City but other NFL-related events like the draft.
"We’ll work on both," Emanuel told the Tribune in an interview. "There’s something to the draft and there’s something to the Super Bowl. I compliment the NFL for deciding to change to cold-weather cities."
