Harbaugh: Baltimore wants a Super Bowl
By James Walker
The NFL's decision Tuesday to award a cold-weather city a Super Bowl has opened up the floodgates.
On the same day the league announced New York/New Jersey will host Super Bowl XLVIII, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he wants one in Baltimore, as well.
"You put one in New York, then come on down here to Baltimore and we'll have a Super Bowl, too. That's what I'd be for," Harbaugh said Tuesday, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Recently, the AFC North blog looked at the possibilities of a Super Bowl coming to a city within the division. Chances seem remote, at best. The three finalists for 2014 were New York/New Jersey, South Florida and Tampa.
That won't stop more cold-weather teams without domed stadiums from campaigning for the big game since New York/New Jersey got the nod.
But will the NFL listen?
