2013 Essence Festival – Friday
Super Bowl XLVII
Event on 2013-02-03 18:00:00
Super Bowl XLVII, the 47th edition of the Super Bowl and the 43rd modern era National Football League championship game, is scheduled to be played in 2013 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The exact date has not been set, mostly due to the ongoing question of expanding the current sixteen game schedule as of 2010 to a proposed eighteen-game slate, but the game has typically been held on the first Sunday in February since 2004, which in 2013 will be February 3, 2013. If this remains the Super Bowl date, the 2013 Mardi Gras calendar in Orleans Parish will be changed. Parades scheduled for February 3 and before will likely move ahead one week. The same occurred in 2002 when the 9/11 attacks caused a one week delay in the NFL season, resulting in a New Orleans Super Bowl falling within the Mardi Gras parade calendar.
This will be the tenth time that the city has hosted the ultimate football game, by far the most by an individual city and tying with the Miami area for the most Super Bowls hosted by a metropolitan area. New Orleans beat out Glendale, Arizona and Miami (South Florida) for the right to host the game at the NFL’s Spring Ownership Meetings in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on May 19, 2009, and will mark the first Super Bowl game played in New Orleans since Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002, which saw the New England Patriots win on a game-ending field goal over the St. Louis Rams. CBS will broadcast the game. It will be simulcast in Canada by CTV.
By being played indoors at the Superdome, it will be the first time three straight Super Bowls are played in indoor stadiums, following Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium and Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium. However, Cowboys Stadium and Lucas Oil Stadium each have a retractable roof, meaning the field can be exposed to the elements at those locations.

Atlanta hosted perhaps it’s only Sugar Bowl as the Superdome was still unfit from Katrina to host the game. UGA got behind early and almost rallied but got duped on a fake punt at the end of the game.

I love the NCAA tournament and my favorite part has always been “One Shining Moment.” I’m happy to report that Byron Eaton of Oklahoma State University got the second of his two wishes. The first was to win the NCAA Championship (didn’t happen, of course), and his second was to have a play be good enough to be included in the “One Shining Moment” montage. His game-winning layup against Tennessee made the cut. Congratulations, Byron!Tags: College basketball, NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, NCAA Basketball
