At the NFL spring meetings in Boston this afternoon, owners voted to award Super Bowls L and LI—in 2016 and 2017—to the Bay Area and Houston. That leaves Miami as the only finalist to go home empty-handed. Should've paid for those stadium renovations, South Florida!
What's the opposite of surprise? The 49ers and Texans have long been the favorites to host the big games. They probably started printing up the merchandise as soon as the ink dried on the Levi's Stadium lease, and the Texans got final approval to spruce up Reliant Stadium with the two largest video boards in the NFL.
