Fingers crossed

Maybe they won't make us do it this time.
The last time New Orleans captured a Super Bowl, the final two obstacles were Minnesota and Indianapolis.

That’s the case again Tuesday. But instead of having to defeat the Vikings and Colts, respectively, this time it’s a battle with the cities they call home for the right to host Super Bowl LII in 2018.
I cannot fathom why anyone would actively root for the NFL to bring its big bloated corporate shit show here.  It's basically a living exhibition of everything that's wrong with "the business side of sports" and therefore America paraded before everyone's eyes.  Oh and your team probably isn't even playing in it.

We're not yet in quite the bad shape that other cities hosting major sports events against a backdrop of  gross inequalities are but it's the direction we appear to be headed.
