Indy to host superbowl in 2012

Recommended Posts

Indy was awarded the bid to host superbowl in 2012 (superbowl 46), was shown on the nfl.com video section. This just got me wondering if any team that hosted the superbowl actually played in the superbowl. Were there any in the history of the superbowl?

Closest any team has come to hosting the Super Bowl occured twice:

Super Bowl XIV: Then-LA Rams, who were playing in their final season in the LA Coliseum played the Steelers in the Rose Bowl, about a 30-45 minute drive.

Super Bowl XIX: 49ers played that game at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, about 30 minutes away. The 49ers actually have played one home game in Stanford Stadium, vs. the Patriots following the 1989 earthquake that damaged Candelstick Park.

Im hoping we go to the Superbown and win in the year Dallas hosts the Super Bow,. What a slap in the face that would be.
