New York/New Jersey To Host 2014 Super Bowl

As expected, NFL owners have voted to award the 2014 Super Bowl to New York.

The stadium is currently being built -- and it's actually in New Jersey -- and will host the New York Jets and Giants.

The NFL previously had a rule that the host city must have a average temperature of 50 degrees in February to host a Super Bowl. The New York stadium does not have a roof so it's a reasonable assumption that it will be much colder (and snowy) on game day.

Three cities were in the running including South Florida and Tampa.

The vote by all 32 owners didn't initially get 75% (24 votes) for one city so the lowest vote-getter (Tampa) was knocked off the ballot. New York then won in the final, majority-wins vote.
